This is the ideal B&B in Historic Williamsburg. It's right in the town, walking distance to everything AND includes convenient parking. The room was extremely comfortable with a perfect balance of colonial flair and modern convenience. Breakfasts were delicious with lots of fruit to also be very healthy. Staff could not be friendlier or more knowledgeable. Price was reasonable. We... More

we stayed here with our teenaged son and found the whole experience delightful. The innkeepers were very helpful with planning our day and also saving on the entrance fees that added to our visit to Williamsburg and saved us a lot of time.

Friends and I spent the weekend in Williamsburg, Virginia to celebrate a birthday. We stayed at the Fife and Drum. What a wonderful place to stay. Once we parked the car, we could walk to Colonial Williamsburg, the Art Museum, restaurants, and shopping. The rooms at the hotel were charming and very comfortable. The morning breakfast buffet was delicious. Billy... More

The location is perfect to access the heritage area of Williamsburg and only a five minute walk from the train station which is how I travelled there. Not only that but the rooms are full of character, very clean and the bed very comfortable. Even a stool is provided to climb into the bed. It was a pleasant surprise to... More

The Fife and Drum was a very pleasant respite from a whirlwind of college campus visitations. It is located directly across the street from William and Mary. We had a late check-in and Williamsburg is so safe that the hotel and room "keys" are left for you (in a place that the owners will tell you - I don't want... More

I booked this room for a romantic stopover with my wife. The reviews I read made the facility look great so we had high expectations. Alas, the room was just so-so. The decor was a hodgepodge of styles attempting to be period appropriate. The bed was comfortable but the room layout was awkward. There was one uncomfortable chair and only... More

The Fife & Drum Inn was stellar in every way. The location is absolutely perfect, the rooms are immaculate and very well appointed and breakfast was nothing short of amazing. Sharon and Billy, the owners of The Fife & Drum, were most helpful in their recommendations of places to visit and dine and we particularly enjoyed learning about the history... More

My wife and I stayed here for a one night stay and we were very pleased. After reading a lot of TA reviews on hotels in Williamsburg, we decided to make Fife & Drum our first B&B stay because of its location and authenticity. Our room (The Richneck Room) was very clean and well appointed. This particular room is closer... More

We stayed here while visiting Williamsburg and we have nothing but great things to say! I don't know what they could have possibly done better. The colonial feel of this place was what made the trip. I swear they must clean from floor to ceiling everyday as there was not a speck of dust in our room. The bed was... More
