Anniversary in Williamsburg

3.6 on November 19, 2014

What a beautiful Bed and Breakfast. It took me a while to plan our 1st anniverary trip. Once we narrowed it down as to where we wanted to visit, I knew I wanted to stay in a B&B. After viewing Colonial Gardens website and reading the reviews I booked the room. We were greeted promptly by the very sweet Jennifer. Our room was very clean and beautifully appointed. I have never stayed in such a quiet inn. Wonderful for sleeping plus the bed was very comfortable lots of warm blankets. The beautiful breakfast that was prepared for us was very yummy. I am a big breakfast person and found the portions a bit small. I generally eat a bigger breakfast and eat a smaller lunch. We did the opposite on this trip. That is just a personal quirk. Coffee was plentiful and the wine cooler had wine availble for purchase at a reasonable price. The room had plenty of storage and they provided robes and slippers for our use. We did not use the robes but they looked very comfy and cozy. Jennifer was very helpful in finding our way around Williamsburg and had lots of helpful tips. She recommended a wonderful place for dinner on Friday that turned out to be the best meal we had out. I would give this trip a 10 out of 10.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much for your kind review. I am so glad Jennifer was attentive and helpful and that you found our beds & linens to be co comfortable. Next time you are with us please ask Jennifer to be a little more generous with your portions or by all means ask for seconds if you are still hungry! Most often folks tell us we put too much on the plates. Glad you had a great time!


Great honeymoon

5 on October 01, 2014

My wife and I were looking for a place close to us that we could spend a nice week for our honeymoon. I am a history buff and she is more of a shopper, so the williamsburg area was a perfect fit. I have been to williamsburg many times in my life but have never stayed at a b&b. This was a first for both of us. We started looking online for B&B ' S in the area and found there are quite a few, and as we all know the Internet is not the most reliable of sources, we were a bit skeptical. But upon arrival we were blown away. Clean and beautiful inside. Wonderful breakfasts and kind friendly staff. The only complaint I would have is the outdoor areas are not in good repair. I can understand a rough winter but the views would be great if you could sit outside. Overall 5 star all the way.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much for your kind review! We are so glad you had such a nice time while visiting for your honeymoon. I understand those benches in the gardens are covered with moss and we thought about replacing them but everyone said they looked so quaint and fit in with the natural beauty of the place, but I will add new benches and chairs that you can sit in right away!


It was great!

4.8 on September 19, 2014

We loved Jennifer! She hung out with us at breakfast and told us helpful tourist info. She served a great breakfast. Our room was spotless. It didn't feel like you were staying in someone else's house. We had privacy. They provided wine at market price, which we took advantage of. I loved this place and I may come back. You won't be disappointed!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much for your kind review! We are so happy you enjoyed your stay. Come again please!


Loved Colonial for our wedding anniversary

Great,quiet weekend get away! Perfect location, nice personal touches!

4.0 on September 04, 2014

My husband and I stayed for 3 days here and enjoyed our stay very much. Jennifer (The inn keeper) and the owners have truly thought of everything to get you settled in from the moment you arrive until you leave. The only reason I gave the dining a lower rating is because I thought we would get to pick our breakfast choices. Everything tasted very good but there were set daily menus. The B&B is small enough to customize breakfast or at least let you know what's for breakfast the night before. This way you can decline breakfast, if you want something else. The B&B is in a great location! Mins from Williamsburg attractions and lots of restaurants to choose from. Please check out the Second St Grill if you go! Great food and service! I would highly recommend this B&B!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your kind review. We are so glad you enjoyed everything as much as you did. I am sorry dining was an issue for you, most B&B's are run the same way as ours with respect to breakfast. Most everyone gets the same delicious breakfast although we do adjust for dietary restrictions. If you are looking to order off a menu you might want to try an "inn" or hotel where they have a chef on staff. B&B's are a bit more intimate and tend not to have the flexibility to do a different breakfast for everyone.


Review for my stay in August 2014

5 on August 25, 2014

I would like to pass on that Jennifer was OUTSTANDING. She worked with me in spite of an issue that arose in my schedule and made accommodations above and beyond to ensure I had a great time. I haven't slept so well in years! I definitely intend on staying here in the future and recommending the Colonial Gardens B&B to others. Thank you. Marvin Frazier

Innkeeper Response

Romantic Stay

4.6 on August 07, 2014

Property was very nice and historic; hostess was very welcoming and friendly; felt like we were staying with family. Highly recommend for a romantic getaway. Wife was impressed they had "make up" towels in the bathroom, we've been to four and five star hotels and they even miss this detail.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much for your kind review! We are so happy you enjoyed your stay. We love that you noticed the details. Come again please!


34th Anniversary

5 on July 27, 2014

We celebrated our Anniversary and loved it. The facilities were beautiful and Jennifer ensured all the details were taken care of. We loved our time in Colonial Williamsburg and this added a level of romance no hotel could have met. Breakfast was outstanding but the arrangements they made for our Anniversary were a step above. The bed was so comfortable, we slept soundly each night. Highly recommend such a great and wonderful place.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much for your kind review! Congratulations on 34 years! We are so happy you enjoyed everything Please come back again.

Colonial Gardens B&B stay

3.8 on June 30, 2014

Innkeeper was nice and accommodating. Not quite the luxury you would expect for the price. Very small bathroom that looked like it was the original and had never been updated. Was very clean and well kept but just a little deceiving website.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you of your reveiw and we are so glad you enjoyed Jennifer's hospitality. I am sorry you were disappointed in our rooms we certainly do not want to deceive anyone which is why I wonder if you actually saw our website, In fact most folks comment on how the bed and breakfast looks just like the web site. We do hope you will try us again in the future.
