“Will definitely go back!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

My husband and I recently stayed at Bentley Manor on our vacation to Colonial Williamsburg. We had never stayed at a bed and breakfast before, and venturing away from his old standby Embassy Suites was difficult for my husband at first. I did extensive research online and the excellent reviews convinced me to try Bentley Manor. From the moment of our arrival, we knew we had chosen wisely. Fred and Jane greeted us enthusiastically and were very accommodating of our arrival late on a Saturday night. They were extremely knowledgeable about the area and our stay was vastly improved by their wealth of knowledge. We stayed in the Thomas Jefferson room and my husband raved about the plush towels. The only negative thing I could say was the pillows were not as comfortable as we are accustomed to, but this was a trivial problem. The room was bright, exceptionally clean, and comfortable. Perhaps the highlight of the stay was Jane's breakfast. Each morning brought another delightful and challenging choice between a "sweet" breakfast or more traditional hardy breakfast. We both absolutely loved the sweet potato pancakes! We thoroughly enjoyed the company of other travellers over breakfast. The coffee is the some of the best my husband ever tasted and as a tea drinker I was pleased to find an excellent assortment of teas. Overall, the delicious breakfast is a wonderful way to start the day on a full, happy stomach! The inn is just a brisk walk to Colonial Williamsburg but conveniently off the main roads. I also cannot say enough about Fred and Jane's hospitality. We had to leave early to catch out flight and they graciously offered to have breakfast prepared 30 minutes earlier than normal to accomodate our departure. We loved our stay in Williamsburg and as we did not see even close to everything while we were there we will definitely be making plans in the future to return. I wouldn't dream of staying anywhere except Bentley Manor Inn!

My wife and I stayed at the Bentley Manor Inn over a weekend in November 2012. The experience was wonderful. The owners are very gracious and accomodating. You can tell they love what they do and it comes through in their kind and helpful manner. We felt like welcomed guests. The home is charming, accomdations excellent and the breakfast's delicious. We recommend the Bentley Manor Inn highly. The location is very close to the Colonial Williamsburg center and College of William and Mary.

Our recent stay at Bentley Manor Inn could not have been better. I actually am very picky and spend quite a bit of time researching accommodations and I was not disappointed. We stayed for 4 nights and it just kept getting better and feeling more and more like home with Fred and Jane's gracious hospitality. They are pro's at serving incredible breakfast that causes one to have trouble deciding what to choose. Jane's seasonal selections are well thought out and delicious. I appreciated her going the extra mile with extra thought. Fred is great at assisting with check-in, the days plans, breakfast, and anything else one might need. We slept in Captain John Smith's room and the linens and towels were great quality, the bed was comfortable and the exceptionally clean. We highly recommend this owner owned inn.

Room Tip: Personally, I prefer both the rooms decor on the front of the INN. Captain John Smith and Thomas Jef...

Bentley Manor Inn, Williamsburg, Virginia
We would highly recommend the Bentley Manor Inn. A beautiful home, this B&B is efficiently and lovingly maintained by Fred and Jane. The rooms are well appointed with comfortable beds, fine linens and towels, and the house is immaculate throughout. Fred and Jane are the perfect host and hostess who are only too willing to accommodate your needs. The Inn is located on a quiet street, affording one a good night’s sleep, but close to major attractions in Williamsburg, well within walking distance. The breakfasts were delicious with plenty of choice, and we especially enjoyed meeting people around the table. We very much enjoyed and appreciated our stay at Bentley Manor Inn. You cannot go wrong if you stay here!

Jane and Fred Garland made us feel like we were coming-home to our parents' homes on our first visit to Bentley Manor Inn. We stayed in the Thomas Jefferson Room which was very comfortable, impeccably clean, and well appointed. They equipped us with maps of Williamsburg attractions and dining establishments that we immediately made use of. After a very restful night, we joined two other couples at the large diningroom table for a breakfast feast of fresh fruit salad and juices, omletts, sausage and french toast that would make our moms jealous. We intend to return to Williamsburg with Bentley Manor Inn as our destination point.

My husband and I stayed at Bentley Manor Inn from Tuesday through Thursday, October 23-26. My husband had a conference in Washington DC, which started the following Sunday. The room was very clean and nicely decorated. All the rooms had attached baths, however, ours had been recently remodeled and was extra nice. During our stay, we visited Colonial Williamsburg, which was about one-half mile away. This was a very easy walk. Upon our arrival, our host, Fred, showed us maps of the area and helped figure out where we were in relation to Colonial Williamsburg. The breakfasts were wonderful. Jane is an outstanding cook! Fred is an outstanding host. Both were very friendly and helpful
