We picked the Bentley Manor because of the TripAdvisor reviews; we weren't disappointed. We agree with what everyone else says in their reviews but none of them do justice to Bentley Manor's location. Bentley Manor is located in a very quiet residential neighborhood (there were deer in the front yard one morning) about a half mile from Colonial Williamsburg (CW). You can drive a couple of minutes and hunt a parking place. But, my wife and I decided to walk. It's a leisurely 15 minutes and you can walk right through the heart of the William and Mary campus. Also, Fred and Jane have a wealth of information about CW. When we arrived at 3pm on a Sunday, Fred suggested we go to the visitor center and watch the orientation movie. We watched both the Jack Lord movie on the colonial history and the Rockerfeller restoration movie. They both made our time in CW much more worthwhile as they set it all into context. This is an excellent, well-run B&B in a great town with the best possible location.
