We had a great romantic stay at the Williamsburg Sampler Bed and Breakfast. The accomodations were lovely and the food was delicious. The Inn keeper Ike was very personable and he made us feel right at home. We would not hesitate to stay there again

We were in Williamsburg, VA on Dec 10, 2004 for the first night football game at the College of William and Mary. We stayed at the Williamsburg Sampler. It was great -- plenty of parking for all of us. And it was an easy and safe walk through campus to the football stadium. As has been said, the breakfast at the Williamsburg Sampler is more than enough to get you through the day right up to dinner time. Staying at a Bed and Breakfast is charming -- but this place has facilities you would only expect find at hotels. The exercise facility is like having a private gym. We enjoyed the big screen TV in the sports basement - we loved seeing the highlights of the game we had just attended. I can certainly recommend this Inn.

This Inn, The Williamsburg Sampler, is exac tly what their website writes and pictures. I believe it is 7000 square feet of just pure joy. The house from the front looks smaller ten that footage, cause it goes back and then up. Fantastic. From the moment the front door opened and saw the warm, cosy, wonderfully furnished home, Alice and I know we have choisen the best B&B in town. Our room with a lovely four postered bed was a dream to sleep in. The breakfast was outstanding, and next to my wife's the best I have ever tasted for the next two days.
Nothing boring at this Inn, wonderful antiques, a professional Gym, we played billiards, watched a 60" TV, an intereisting innkeeper, great location. I gfuess you got the idea, we loved the Inn....and I am sure you will too when visiting this historic location.

The Williamsburg Sampler Bed and Breakfast was a real delight. Ike (the owner) does the cooking, which was elegant and delicious. He is a wonderful host; sets a beautiful table and the food is very gourmet. We had a wonderful time - met wonderful people at breakfast. Ike's B&B is very, very pretty - grounds are beautiful. He just finished his basement installing a huge wide-screen TV and a pool table. In the garage outside, is a full state-of-the art gym and sauna. TV and music are also available in the gym. He is a collector of many different artifacts and loves to shop and travel. A wonderful place to stay - there are two suites and two bedrooms - all have private baths. We plan to return to this wonderful B&B!

The suite we had at the Williamsburg Sampler Bed & Breakfast was comfortable and roomy. The porch outside our room was also lovely. Beyond that, the dining room and sitting room felt very cluttered. In my opinion, the dining area was over-filled with all sorts of collectibles, including a large collection of ceramic chickens. The kitchen counter was littered with mail and papers that weren't even removed when breakfast was prepared. We stayed there for three nights. On the last morning we were the only guests. One hour prior to breakfast being served I went down to the kitchen to tell the host/owner that we were not interested in breakfast. He was rude, cursed and said there would be no coffee served also. Bottom line is, there is no doubt we will never visit this B&B again and will not recommend it.

Just returned home from an excellent getaway for our 1 year anniversary. The Williamsburg Sampler Bed & Breakfast was an excellent choice. Ike was such a pleasant host and made us feel right at home - he even arranged for fresh flowers and refreshments to be waiting for us upon our arrival. The decor is really amazing throughout the house. We stayed in one of the 2 suites. I can highly recommend this place. It is in close proximity to the fine restaurants and Kingsmill spa. We will be back again next time in Williamsburg!

This is a very comfortable and quiet bed and breakfast very close to Colonial Williamsburg. We stayed in the King William Suite, which has two TVs, a renovated bathroom, a sitting area, mini fridge and sink, and a king-sized bed. The breakfasts were awesome--it's served at 8:30, but you won't be hungry again for at least 5 hours. My only complaint is that the bed's mattress was a little hard. I don't know if the other rooms have more comfortable mattresses.
