My wife and I stay two night here while we were in Colonial Williamsburg. The B&B was great. The breakfasts tasted great and we had a variety of foods to choose from. The host was very friendly. We would stay here again and recommend it highly. Mike and Barbara. Arizona

We enjoyed a two night stay here recently. The room was very clean, as well as the bathroom. The bathroom was nicely updated. The bed was a little hard but had lovely sheets. Our suite had a nice sitting room and gas fireplace, as well as an outdoor porch. There was plenty of space and a huge walk in closet. The innkeeper, Ike, was very friendly. He was always available if we needed anything. The location was great - close to Colonial Williamsburg and William and Mary and easy to get to. Breakfast was good - simple but many items to chose from and delicious. My only recommendation would have been room for toiletries in the bathroom - there was only a pedestal sink and no table or place to rest them.

My husband and I recently stayed at the Williamsburg Sampler B&B for two nights for our anniversary. The B&B was cute and cozy with a lot of character. The breakfasts were good, but fairly basic (scrambled eggs one morning and French toast the next). The location is excellent - only a mile walk from Colonial Williamsburg and very close to the William & Mary campus. The innkeeper Ike was not at the B&B all the time, but he was around most afternoons/evenings and was very kind. Overall, we were pleased with our stay.

Our daughter gave us a Bed and Breakfast.com certificate and we decide to go to Williamsburg, VA. We chose the Williamsburg Sampler B&B it was truly amazing the house was beautifully decorated and immaculate. Ike (the owner) was so nice we had some very good conversations. The ship your lunch breakfast was wonderful and different every day. We really enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend the Williamsburg Sampler to anyone going to Williamsburg.

My husband and I stayed at the Williamsburg Sampler this past weekend for one night while we were in Williamsburg visiting our son. I can't believe we had never stayed in such a place before. The grounds were wonderfully kept even though there was snow on the ground. Ike, the innkeeper, met us at the door and gave us a tour of his beautiful home. It was filled with antiques and other paraphernalia from around the world. He then showed us to our suite. We stayed in the Captain John Smith suite. It was clean, comfortable, and very spacious. The deck outside our suite was even nice to go out and look around even in the cold weather. Our fireplace kept us toasty warm. The shower was the best part of the room. Newly remodeled, it has side sprays as well as the shower head. It was one very relaxing shower. The next morning, we made our way down to breakfast where we dined with another couple from Virginia Beach. Ike joined us in the conversation, and we had a very good breakfast as well as received some good ideas of places to go around the B&B. Ike even remembered I was looking for some iced tea the night before, and made me a glass for breakfast the next morning. The cook and housekeeper was also very attentive and very sweet. She is also a great cook. I so enjoyed our stay at the Williamsburg Sampler, and we will definitely go back the next time we are down in Williamsburg. It has a very enchanting charm about it. Ike was like a long lost friend who we just met up with again. All in all, a grand experience.

Overall not bad. Fairly close to the downtown area so we were able to walk which was very nice. Room was small but had everything we wanted. Breakfast was standard, but nothing really fancy or memorable.
