“If you want to make your weekend in Williamsburg special”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2012

We stayed at the Colonial Capital Bed and Breakfast in Williamsburg, Virginia graduation/Mother’s day weekend of 2012. If you are planning a special weekend for a William and Mary graduation or football, Grand Illumination, or just a little R&R, this is the place to stay. Our host, Mr. George A. Hollingsworth III could not have been any more generous of his time, efforts, or spirit and accommodated us exceedingly well. We had a diverse group with different needs and George proved to be both flexible and innovative to keep all of his guests extremely happy. His bed and breakfast will capture and enthrall you in the historic mood of Williamsburg and it is beautifully decorated. After personalizing his menu for any food allergies or aversions, George’s breakfasts are scrumptious and evoke what you would consider top form Southern cooking. You will be within walking distance of many of the activities surrounding both Colonial Williamsburg and the College. Having done due diligence for two years prior to our stay for William and Mary’s graduation weekend, we had high expectations for the Colonial Capital Bed and Breakfast and our weekend could not have been any better.

We loved the Colonial Capital B & B - our room was the smaller room - James - but quite adequate - we stayed two nights - both breakfasts were outstanding! George - the owner was the host and was very helpful and friendly! We plan to stay there again when we return to Williamsburg

This B&B is across the street from the College of William & Mary and a short walk to Colonial Williamsburg. The room and private bathroom was clean. The breakfast was very good and the innkeepers friendly but not overbearing. I would return here again.

My wife and I and 3 other couples reserved the Colonial Capital Bed and Breakfast for the last weekend before Christmas 2009, and it was wonderful. We had the entire inn to ourselves, which added to the enjoyment. (There is a room on the third floor, but it was rented for the year to two co-eds from the College of William and Mary and, therefore was inaccessible). Each room has its own style and all were nicely furnished and decorated. The room that my wife and I had was the smallest of the four but was still of sufficient size and comfort. Although our room faced Richmond Street, it was still quiet and we slept undisturbed by passing traffic. The first floor parlor is spacious and has comfortable sofas and chairs that we put to good use each evening sharing wine and watching NFL football.

George was a gracious host and made terrific breakfasts each morning using his southern Mississippi culinary skills and recipes. Breakfast was served at a well-appointed table in the dining room that easily accommodated our entire party.

The inn’s location could not have been better. It is across the street from the College of William and Mary and only a short walk from Merchant’s Square and the lower terminus of Duke of Gloucester Street. It is an easy walk from the inn to the historic sites in Colonial Williamsburg. There is a Colonial Williamsburg ticket office in Merchant’s Square, and that eliminates the need to drive to the Visitor’s Center and rely on bus transportation to and from the historic sites.

All said, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would be delighted to return.

We stayed two nights at the Colonial Capital Bed and Breakfast and thoroughly enjoyed the visit. The room was spacious and comfortable and the friendly (but not intrusive) innkeepers took good care of us. The breakfast on both mornings was delicious and filling, giving us a nice start to our sightseeing each day. It's a few blocks further from Colonial Williamsburg than we thought, but still within walking distance in a nice area of town. A real plus was the parking space we had while there. We're looking forward to visiting in warmer weather so we can take advantage of the little porch/balcony off of the Potomac Room. All in all, a truly wonderful place to relax after a long day of sightseeing!

My husband and I really enjoyed staying here. The whole house was beautiful. George made us feel very welcomed. Our room - Chesapeake - was lovely. Everything was clean and well maintained. The breakfasts were excellent. We had to leave early on our last morning and George made sure we had a muffin to take with us. After walking around all day visiting the various sites in the Historic Triangle area, it was nice to be able to sit and relax in the living room having a glass of wine.

The house was a great spot to walk to Colonial Williamsburg and a short drive to Busch Gardens. We traveled with a 10 year old and she felt very comfortable in the sitting room of the Pamlico Suite. The house was spotless and George a gracious host.
