My husband and I stayed in the cottage last weekend and it was PERFECT! It was super clean, beautiful and had EVERYTHING we needed to make our stay perfect. We had our own parking space which made things so convenient. Although, we did not need our car! We walked right out our door across the street and had a WONDERFUL... More

We loved this Inn so much that we decided to stay an extra night. We had reserved 2 rooms for 2 nights for 2 couples, those rooms were already booked for the third night but the Cottage was available and sleeps 6. The location is perfect for walking to Historic Williamsburg, shopping and restaurants. We preferred the Inn, but the... More

The Fife and Drum is the only choice when visiting our daughter at the College of William and Mary. Love the location in Merchant Square which allows for an easy walk to the College, to the shops and to Colonial Williamsburg. Our favorite room, the Jamestown room, is not only beautiful, but provides all the amenities that one needs. The... More

The Fife and Drum was a perfect choice for taking our 10 yr old daughter to Williamsburg. Our location was perfect as we were within walking distance of the Revolutionary City, Merchants Square, and local restaurants. Our room had a queen and twin bed for our family. The homemade cookies, tea, and lemonade were a welcome sight after a long... More

We stayed at the Fife and Drum this past weekend for our 45th wedding anniversary, which included a train trip from Alexandria, Virginia to Williamsburg. We were so happy we stayed here, since it was an easy walk from the Amtrak station and another easy walk to get to all the attractions and restuarants in Colonial Williamsburg. The hosts left...

Spent two days at the F&D in March, 2014. We have been here many times as the location and atmosphere is great! We always enjoy being here. Parking is around the corner, rooms are small but comfortable. Breakfast is always good, although simple. The only complaints we have is that the facility is on 2d floor and would appreciate replacing... More

Top notch... Clean, friendly, great breakfast, so much to do in the area. This was our second visit. Once for Christmas and we enjoyed Christmas town at Busch Gardens. Second was for our anniversary. I would highly recommend

We stayed at the Fife & Drum, in The Cedar suite, for a special occasion and it was wonderful - quaint & cozy but not too small. Our room was on the back of the B&B, away from the main street and we did not hear any street noise all night. We walked to dinner on Duke of Gloucester street... More

Having traveled throughout many countries and countless hotels and bed and breakfasts, this one is one of the top. I would for sure stay here again in a heartbeat. - The rooms had a few extra touches that put it over the top and worth the money spent. Be sure to check out the Conservatory Room if you stay here.... More
