I stayed at this B&B with 3 other friends to celebrate a birthday. It was fabulous! Everyone was courteous and attentive! The staff told us about the history of the hotel, gave us dinner recommendations, and really made us feel welcome. The breakfast each morning was incredible! And the rooms are so beautiful. Definitely staying here again.

Absolutely Loved this gorgeous boutique hotel right in the middle of the old town of Fredericksburg VA. The house and rooms are huge, charming and beautifully restored. Cheryl was a wonderfully generous, helpful & friendly host - who also makes a stunning breakfast! Highly recommended. You will not be disappointed.

We had a wonderfully relaxing weeknight between the Christmas and New Year's holiday at the Richard Johnston Inn. The historic property is ideally situated in old town Fredericksburg allowing us to walk to any number of restaurants and shops. The interior was fully decorated for the Christmas season and our room (the Loft) was perfect. The loft faces the rear...

An old inn located inn quaint historic Fredericksburg just one street up from the river. The innkeepers are wonderful - full of assistance without being intrusive. Much of the downstairs is a public area that is so comfortable that it makes you want to take pictures and try to recreate it at home! Large, comfortable rooms with excellent old style...

Awesome location in a charming little city. Very conveniently located in the perfect spot to check out the history of this great little southern town with a LOT of history. Also great location for nightlife/restaurants which were way better than we expected. Staff/hospitality were awesome. You definitely get your money's worth--and then some--when you stay here.

My husband and I really enjoyed our 2 day stay. We reserved The Frejus room. The entire staff was friendly and the breakfasts exceptional. Our room was great with a very large bed. We even got a small bottle of champagne to celebrate my birthday along with chocolates and a bit of brandy. There is parking in the back. We...

Stayed here recently and really enjoyed the location and the quaint room. I stayed in one of the rooms on Caroline Street, which was incredibly noisy (so bring ear plugs if you're a sensitive sleeper). The breakfast was very nice, but a little disappointed by the afternoon light snacks (not sure if it was an off day, but they just...
