The Colonial Capital B&B is located across the street from William and Mary College in an area with unique restaurants serving not only colonial fare but also delicious tapas and other creative cuisines. The Colonial Capital is within walking distance to the Colonial Williamsburg village. The owner, Kathryn, is a super hostess! Her breakfasts were delicious, varied, and plentiful and she offers discounted tickets to the CW village. The home was well appointed and comfortable. We truly enjoyed our time at the Colonial Capital B&B!
Great place to stay in Williamsburg! It was very cozy! Did not hear sounds from other rooms. Owner was great and easy to work with. Breakfast was AWESOME. Directly across the street from William and Mary.
Be aware that this proprietor will not return $1270 to us for our reservation for the William and Mary graduation of 2020 that was cancelled due to covid. The graduation is scheduled for Oct 8-10, 2021 but they are booked and Kathryn Tawes won't return $1270.
We have just returned from a long weekend at Colonial Capital B n B, and couldn’t wait to write a review. It is the perfect place to stay, completely charming in every way. The house itself has a real sense of history, is very comfortable, and the location (only a 5-10 min walk to restaurants and Colonial Williamsburg) is ideal. And with only five rooms, it feels so personal, just as a b n b should be. It is the owner Kathryn that makes the place that little bit more special as well; she is so accommodating (letting us check in late), welcoming, and a total delight to chat to. And as others have mentioned, her homemade breakfasts are delicious! We hope to return, and won’t stay anywhere else.
We stayed at this adorable B and B during Williamsburg's off season and got so lucky with the weather. A short walk to Colonial Williamsburg, downtown shops and restaurants, and William and Mary. Kathryn was so pleasant and her restaurant recommendations were spot on. She made my husband and I exactly what we requested for breakfast since it happened to be my birthday that weekend 😁. She also made a beautiful flower bouquet and chocolate covered strawberries for the occasion. The house was lovely, with the expected quaint things for a 1926 house...door knobs for people much shorter than us, skeleton keys, smaller bathrooms, and flowered wallpaper. Always room for repairs here and there, but that is also to be expected of homes from those times. Anyhow, a great stay and we will be returning!…
This intimate B&B is very conveniently located just off campus and only a 5 minute walk from colonial Williamsburg. The house itself is lovely and Kathryn, the host, is very gracious. We thoroughly enjoyed her homemade breakfasts and appreciated our daily chats with her and the other guests. We were kindly allowed a late checkout to help us make the most of our last day in Williamsburg. The James room was very comfy, and water, coffee, tea, and snacks were always available to us downstairs. Overall, a very enjoyable stay.
We recently spent two nights at the Colonial Capital B & B and would not recommend this B & B. The bed was comfortable, the location was good, and the owner was pleasant. The breakfasts were okay but nothing noteworthy. We had great difficulty locking and unlocking our room, the ceiling fan did not work, and we had no maid service, although daily maid service is noted on the website. In addition, if you have any mobility issues, DONOT stay in the York room with the claw-footed tub. It is difficult to get into and out of and slippery.
Just came back from Williamsburg VA and chose to stay at the Colonial Capital B and B due to its great reviews.First the positives about the B and B. Breakfast was very nice, the beds were very comfortable and the location is near the entrance to Colonial Williamsburg. (About a 10 minute walk). Now the concerns. The B and B is a little run down. The keys to our room were broken. Really no biggie but a little frustrating. The disturbing part of the stay was that our room was not cleaned or bed made up on a daily basis. After a day of sightseeing we came back to an uncleaned room, no fresh towels and a bed that was not made. My husband questioned why the room was not cleaned and was told by the owner that they do not clean rooms on a daily basis unless requested by the guest. This was not told to us prior to our stay and that policy was not listed anywhere. We stay at many B and Bs and have never experienced a policy like that before. The owner needs to make sure that the policy is told to her guests ahead of time. It is not an inexpensive B and B so not cleaning the rooms or making the beds up daily is surprising.…
After doing hours of research on places to stay in Williamsburg, we selected the Colonial Capital and we were so glad we did. On our arrival, Kathryn our host, was so welcoming , even taking time to give us ideas for dinner that evening. The common areas, grounds and our room were beautiful. The location is an easy walk to CW, shops and dining. It's also just a short drive to many plantations. ( don't miss Shirley Plantation and Winery!) The breakfasts were amazing.Eggs Bennedict with asparagus, glorious French Toast and the best grits ever! Make sure you try everything. If you enjoy great dinners, don't miss The Fat Canary.....book early and enjoy the scallops. Thank you Kathryn …. we will see you again!
This was my second visit to Williamsburg (which everyone should visit!), but the first time I'd stayed with Kathryn at the Colonial Capital B & B. This was about as far away from any B & B I'd stayed in before as possible. The house itself is amazing, the rooms beautifully furnished, and right on the doorstep if Colonial Williamsburg. The real jewel though is Kathryn and her hospitality. Not only does she have an array of snacks for you to help yourself to with every type of tea and coffee imaginable, but her breakfasts are to die for. Everything is prepared and cooked fresh, and tastes amazing. Our fellow guests were entertaining and we struggled to get out to do sightseeing as it was such fun. Cant recomnend highly enough.
