Anniversary getaway

4.0 on July 15, 2013

We enjoyed our stay. The room was very spacious and nice. It is very close to colonial Williamsburg and the outlet mall.

The BEST place to stay in Williamsburg!

We stayed here for our honeymoon and loved it! Comfy beds, whirlpool bathtubs, mini refrigerators, gourmet (allergy conscious) breakfasts every morning, reasonable rates, and very hospitable host. Magnolia Manor is so close to the historic district of Colonial Williamsburg that you can walk there and use the Williamsburg Trolley to get around. Other attractions (Jamestown Settlement, Yorktown, Water Country USA, and Busch Gardens) are within reasonable distance - 30 minute traveling time or less via car. Even Virginia Beach wasn't that far away (an hour an a half). We will stay here again when we visit Williamsburg, VA, and recommend our family and friends try it out. You will never stay at a hotel again after staying here!

Will stay again

My wife and I stayed at the Magnolia Manor B&B for four nights. Wonderful place; so close to historical Williamsburg that you can walk. The food was outstanding. Scott and Jennifer are great people. We'll stay again when we return.

An outstanding, relaxing inn

Situated perfectly near olde towne Williamsburg and William and Mary college, this inn is a non-pretentious yet welcoming alternative to other lodging destinations. Breakfast was delicious and the environment celebrates the historicity of the area. Scott the proprietor was welcoming and awesome, and the rooms were very comfortable. The next time I'm in Williamsburg, I know where I am staying: Magnolia Manor.

Comfortable, convenient, unimposing

Stayed at this spacious bed & breakfast just down the block from Colonial Williamsburg and William & Mary for 4 nights last week. Our hosts rented all the rooms to my family for a reunion, and we made best use of the common areas that were large enough to accommodate more than 14 people. The bedrooms are large and very comfortable, complete with all the amenities you'd find in a hotel. Most rooms had a bathroom within, the exception being my room with the bathroom outside off of the hall, but very convenient nonetheless. We were a loud group, early risers and late niters, but we heard no complaints from the folks that ran the b&b. Speaking of the 2nd b - breakfast - we had 4 great sit-down/buffet style meals, enough to start the day and last us well into the afternoon. Our host/chef was eager to give us his recipes, as we especially liked the cream-poached egg with cheese topping. Overall, I'd recommend Magnolia Manor for comfort, cost, convenience and the warm, welcoming feeling of being at home.

I enjoyed a two night stay in this beautiful home. It far exceeded my expectations. I found Scott and Jennifer the hosts to be both very personable and very helpful with information about what to see and where to eat. The breakfasts served were top notch. The home was very well maintained and spotless. I cannot wait to goback and visit again

Amazing Weekend!

4.0 on January 16, 2012

My girlfriend and I had been looking forward to this weekend, and we were not disappointed at all. I have stayed at a B&B before, but for my girlfriend, this was the first. We were running a bit late due to traffic, called Scott, and he put our worries to ease. Arrived about an hour late, and received a very warm welcome. After we checked in, Scott had several recommendations for us for dinner and was extremely helpful, to the point of calling the restaurant to make sure we could get in. The room was very nice with the most comfortable bed that I have ever slept in. The gas fireplace was a nice perk; it warmed the room very quickly. Fantastic breakfast, nice selection and a great way to start our day. Being able to leave our vehicle in their parking lot worked out perfectly. Just a short walk to Colonial Williamsburg without the hassle or headache of trying to find a parking space. No doubt about it, we will be back for another weekend!

If you are looking for an elegant room that is conveinient to colonial Williamsburg than this is an average choice. My husband and I have been fortunate enough to stay in some pretty phenomenal b&b's and so unfortunately this stay did not meet are expectations. Although the inn keeper was friendly and helpful, the breakfast served each morning was meager and sometimes just odd. There was usually not enough for substantial portions and choices were limited. Most items seemed right out of a frozen bag when we are usually use to a home cooked meal-which we consider part of the experience in staying in a b&b. The rooms were very nice and the beds huge and comfortable but there was hair in the tub and the tub jets were kind of crusty looking so that we were not comfortable getting in the tub. Overall, I would rate this as an average stay but certainly not the choice if you are looking for a memorable experience.

Lovely Stay

Charming B&B, close to everything, and the service and food was wonderful. Would definitely stay here again.

Quaint Retreat

4.4 on July 06, 2011

Magnolia Manor is a lovely B & B , with antique furnishings & comfortable rooms ! Tea and cookies were nice afternoon snacks . Canopy bedding was beautiful , with very soft sheets in the Gardenia Suite.. Hot tub was so soothing .. Breakfast was in a beautiful dining room , served on antique dishes while hot food was kept warm in chafing servers . The breakfast food was a special selection of crepes, hot food choices , fruit juice, and hot beverages I especially enjoyed ! I brought my family here, and I heard nothing except how much they all liked the quaint atmosphere and accommidations !
