With its’ seven rooms and two suites (and the Drummers Cottage located across Boundary from the Inn) the Fife and Drum Inn is the best of a fine hotel and a romantic and unique bed and breakfast. Having been born and raised in Williamsburg your hosts, Billy & Sharon, know how to offer southern hospitality at its best.

This is the only inn that is in the downtown area and not owned by the Foundation. You're literally above shops and amazing restaurants, mere steps from the historic district and all it has to offer as well as across the street from William & Mary. The housekeeper, Rhonda, is a gem and the owners are so nice and approachable. You can't beat the fresh baked cookies and lemonade at the end of a day of sight seeing either.

I arrive late by train and everything was waiting for me as promised. It was easy to follow the instructions to get to my room and I was able to check in officially the next morning at breakfast. The owner was welcoming and gave me helpful information about the town. I had the George Washington room which I found very comfortable and spotlessly clean. It was also conveniently close to the breakfast room where 24 coffee, tea and hot chocolate was available to help yourself to. Snacks were also provided. The location is excellent for exploring the heritage township on foot. I throughly enjoyed my visit to Williamsburg and The Fyfe and Drum was a significant part of my enjoyment of my visit.

We were able to walk to all the activities of Colonial Williamsburg. We stayed in the cottage with our 3 grand kids. They loved the bunk beds. Great restaurants with all price ranges within walking distance. Very clean with great personal service.

Delicious breakfast each morning. Perfect location- walking distances of everything in Colonial Williamsburg and Merchant Square. Room was a good size and well-kept. Minor complaint- the television is the size of a computer laptop screen.

The inn is within walking to the historic district, visitors center and many nice places to dine. Owner and staff were pleasant and knowledgable of surrounding areas. Room was comfortable and well maintained. Reserved parking provided across the street. If you want a certain room call first before booking online. We booked a certain room then were told by email it was booked and had been moved to different room. (Owner was happy to cancel the reservation if desired) Glad we didn't. It was a perfect location for exploring the historic town on foot or driving to outer areas.

Our stay at the Fife & Drum in Williamsburg Va was very pleasurable one. The B & B's location was ideal, everything you would want to see is within walking distance. We will go back again.

I stayed in the Conservancy suite at the Fife and Drum Inn. The room was small but wonderfully decorated and so cozy - the claw foot tub was immaculate, as was everything else. I loved the canopy bed. The breakfast served each morning was delicious - Virginia ham biscuits, fresh fruit, egg casserole, etc. and the owners were so sweet and engaged us in friendly conversation and genuinely cared about our experience there. I will definitely be a returning customer!
