Reviewed April 7, 2013

My husband and I just completed a 2 week trip , We stayed at some lovely bed and breakfast homes. Unfortunately this was not one of them.. The wife was very rude to me on the phone and then we never met her.. The husband was rushed and always seemed to be hurrying us. The rooms were very nice and clean. The breakfast the morning we had it was not very good. If we had to do it again we would not stay there.

This was our first B&B, and it did not disappoint! The suite was much more spacious and accommodating than the online pictures indicated, the homemade breakfast each morning was stellar, and the hosts were engaging and very pleasant.

The bed was extremely comfortable, and our bathroom was well lit and very clean. Towels were plush, and while coffee was only served in the mornings, tea and water was available at all times (along with little pastry snacks). We even enjoyed a bottle of wine on the deck during one of the afternoons of our stay.

The location couldn't have been any better.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Magnolia Suite.

We decided to go to Colonial Williamsburg for a romantic long weekend but there were so many accommodation choices. We finally picked the Gardenia Suite at Magnolia Mannor. It turned out to be a great choice. It was furnished beautifully and the mattress was so comfortable they should receive a commission from the bedding store because I plan to replace my own mattress. The location was good as it is close to everything. We walked the few blocks to Colonial Williamsburg stopping at the College Deli for lunch. Scott and Jennifer (owners) were very helpful. Breakfast was yummy. We hope to make another trip soon and look forward to staying again at Magnolia Manor.

My teenage daughter and I stayed for just one night. Way too short a time because everything about the Inn was perfect! Scott graciously allowed us to check in early and was very willing to let us check out late if we needed to. Our room was so cozy and the bed was one of the most comfortable I've ever slept on. We loved the gas fireplace in our sitting room and watched two movies from the Inn's DVD collection. With only a day's notice, Scott accommodated my daughter's gluten-free diet with a fabulous breakfast that I also enjoyed. He was a delightful host, and we will be back again!

My wife and I recently stayed at the Magnolia in the Gardenia Suite. This was an enjoyable stay with a feeling of going back in time. The house and the accomodations are great, best mattress we ever slept on. The owners were gracious and allowed us to browse around the house. The location couldn't be better with it's close proximity to Historic Williamsburg Village. An enjoyable and different breakfast on each of our two day stay. I certainly would stay again and would recommend it to others.

The Owners we very friendly and personable. We were probably the youngest couple staying there by a good 15 years but felt welcome none the less. Had a lovely stay there, very clean and comfortable. The photos don't even do this place justice.The bed was VERY comfortable; only problem was we did not want to get out of it! Breakfast could have used a little help but still tasty.Location was PERFECT. We would certainly recommend staying here!
