My wife and I stayed three nights at the King William Manor, from Dec 26 - 29, and we highly recommend this great Bed & Breakfast. We stayed upstairs in the annex, in the Plantation Room, a spacious King-bedded room with fireplace. Our end of the annex upstairs had recently been converted to central air and heat, and as it was quite cold during our stay, we took full advantage. We used the fireplace every evening and morning. By the time you read this review, all of the annex should be converted to central air and heat, eliminating the concerns of a previous reviewer.
Alison and Craig are wonderful hosts, probably the most friendly and engaging we've ever experienced at a B&B, and we've stayed at dozens. Very helpful with restaurants and things to do in the area, and always brimming with plans for the Manor. Oft times, B&B owners aren't around, but it seemed like one of them or Deandra were always there to talk with or answer questions. Craig is a glass blower and much of his work is displayed, particularly the light fixtures in the main house. Amazing work!
Breakfasts, cooked by Craig and served by Alison and Deandra, were outstanding.
There is so much to do within walking distance of the King William Manor. We arrived on Monday December 26th and didn't move our car until we left on Dec. 29th. We walked everywhere. Highly recommend the King William neighborhood - get a copy of "King William Area - A Walking Tour" - and don't miss touring Villa Finale. Of course we walked to the River Walk, but truthfully I enjoyed the less-commercial neighborhood. For restaurants, we enjoyed the Liberty Bar, Feast, and Azuca, all within easy walking distance, and had lunch three times at Mad Hatter. All good.
Thank you Alison, Craig, and Deandra - we had a great stay!
