We love staying here on our trips to Williamsburg. Great location right near Merchants Square. Billy is always helpful with respect to things to do and places to eat. The breakfast is perfect and we like the reserved parking right around the corner.

Fabulous rooms, excellent food, knowledgeable, friendly, helpful innkeeper and wonderful location. For our two night stay, we stayed in 2 different rooms due to room availability during our stay. They moved us from one room to the other seamlessly. Excellent recommendations on what to do in Jamestown and places to eat around the area. We loved it and look forward...

We visit Williamsburg several times a year and for the last decade or so have chosen the Fife and Drum in as our regular lodging. We like to walk in the historic area and enjoy the restaurants and shopping on Merchants Square, and no accommodations are more convenient than the Fife and Drum. Billy, Sharon and the staff do everything...

My wife and I decided a few weeks ago to get out of town for one night and booked the Restoration Suite at the Fife & Drum. We could not have been happier with our decision to stay here. The room was extremely nice, had all of the amenities you would need, and is located right in the middle of...

My neighbor and I made spur of the moment plans to drive up to Williamsburg from coastal North Carolina. I was in charge of accomodations and checked if the Fife and Drum had any vacancies the first week in December. They did not have two single rooms available, so we took a two bedroom suite that worked out fine. The...

I have no idea why my husband and I have not stayed here before now. It is a very cozy, clean, and comfortable B&B. The common area is full of light and has several small tables for breakfast as well as a small nook with a sofa where you an read or watch a TV to catch the news. The...

The Fife and Drum Inn is a lovely B&B located near colonial Williamsburg, William and Mary College and local shopping. The rooms are nicely decorated and very comfortable. A big plus is the location - so easy to walk to the sights and restaurants. The staff was very knowledgeable and assisted with tickets/dining suggestions. I highly recommend the wine lovers...
