The Fife and Drum is excellently located and a joy to visit. The room was wonderful, breakfast was fantastic and the staff was incredibly kind and helpful. We have stayed in numerous locations throughout Williamsburg and this will definitely be our new go-to for future accommodation needs.

"Super B&B - can’t fault it!"

We stayed here on a brief visit to Williamsburg - and wish we had time to stay longer. This really is a smashing b&b - from the warmth of the welcome to the quality of the breakfast and the comfort of the room. There is a little sitting room and dining area with 24 hour tea and coffee and various books and magazines to browse. Parking until 2pm on the day you leave. Billy could not be more helpful and friendly - hitting just the right note! He pointed us to the Fife & Drum display by the courthouse at 5pm the day we arrived. The room is both charming and very comfortable with lots of quirks and facilities - there really is nothing lacking. We loved it - even the toiletries were really good! To top it all, you can go back and use the ‘privy’ after you have checked out and freshen up before travel. Very thoughtful - I can highly recommend!

This is the only B and B we have ever stated in due to lack of privacy at other B and B's. We will definitely return! Amazing breakfast everyday. Fresh cookies daily and free parking...nothing else to ask for!
