Excellent location. Comfortable room. Innkeeper very helpful with parking instructions and other recommendations. Would stay here again. Highly recommend. Stayed in George Washington room overlooking street. Was a little noisy in the wee hours when there was street maintenance. Probably quieter in the back.

We had planned a visit for our anniversary to Williamsburg. We had previously stayed at Williamsburg Inn many years ago. Due to renovations to the Inn this was not an option. We decided to try Fife and Drum Inn. It was a great experience. Very clean the most important on our list of needs. The owners are from Williamsburg and take great pride in the Inn and their hometown. They make their guests feel at home. Love the cookies. Breakfast was great...very fresh. Coffee was good. Parking was close by and free. Location was perfect! Close to many shops and restaurants. 1 block from Historic Williamsburg and William and Mary College. Highly Recommend!

We have been coming to the Fife and Drum for over 13 years, now. The quality, cleanliness, cheerfulness from owner and staff, and atmosphere, is unmatched by any other establishment we have visited. The Inn has the charm of a B-n-B yet the accommodations of a 5 star hotel. Each room is fully furnished with it’s own private full bathroom, individual hotel quality entry door way offering security and privacy, and it’s own TV and wifi necessities. The Common Room is home to the Inn Keeper’s award winning breakfast, and the charm of a cozy TV and dining room. Often we will can be found in the Common Room snacking, having lunch that we have purchased in the historic district, reading, relaxing, and/or watching the latest news, or seasonal sports, on the television. The location is perfect; directly across the street from local artesian shops, cafes, dinner establishments, and the heart of Colonial Williamsburg. Billy and Sharon’s knowledge of the town and the surrounding historical town(s) is a wealth of information, and they are ready and willing to make suggestions in order to make every stay perfect and different. We never get tired of seeking new attractions, or being content with some the of the establishments we have come to love over the years. Your stay can be as private as you would like it to be, or as friendly and warm as coming to a friend's house to stay over for a few days. Anyone looking for a wonderful stay, with accommodations and accessibility to all that CWB has to offer will be blessed to stay at The Fife and Drum Inn!!!

"Cottage was PERFECT for our family of 5!"

It was important that we stayed in a place that felt special, we hoped it would even be historic, but with young kiddos sometimes B&B are not a great fit. This was not the case at Fife & Drum because they have a wonderful cottage, separate from their main building, it provided us a perfect place to relax and enjoy our time in Williamsburg. Once we arrived and parked in their lot, we didn't have to drive again while in Williamsburg. The location is ideal to enjoy the Colonial Williamsburg part of town, as well as, the "modern" downtown. Our kids (13, 10 and 6 years old) loved everything, especially the sweet built-in bunk beds. They also loved exploring the neighborhood, and were tickled to find a fabulous school yard with lots of playground equipment to explore, just two blocks away. This was very much appreciated after a long car ride. Our needs or requests were fulfilled promptly, extra blankets, milk, and additional coffee. We DEFINITELY would love to return again and stay in the cottage! My suggestions: additional pillows and to improve the quality of the pillows, I'd recommend using zippered storage boxes to prevent dust etc. We found the tv cabinet in the living room to be awkward and in the way, perhaps just place tv on shelf of built-in shelves. Again, thanks for making our visit wonderful!

"Best Location an a True Historic Williamsburg Building"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5

It's located within the blocked off streets of Colonial WB, and the College of WM is across the street. Easy walking distance to all things Colonial Williamsburg. Very cool old rooms, brought up to high modern standards. The building has been in the same family that runs the inn for a long time. You can really feel the pride taken in everything they do here. There is nothing like walking out the door at night into 1720 Williamsburg to really get the "back in time" feeling. Will return for sure. Even our teenage kids loved it.
