Colonial Capital Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #14 of 21 Williamsburg B&B and Inns
Reviewed 10 August 2015

We had a wonderful time at Colonial Capital. Kathryn was an amazing hostess, and our room was comfortable and clean. The best part about was the gourmet breakfast, prepared by Chef David Everett. It was just fantastic. We did not expect a world-class chef to be making our breakfast! We had fresh baked croissants, a fresh omelet, Spanish chorizo stew, fried fingerling potatoes, local stone ground cheese grits, baked apples, greek yogurt parfait, an assortment of fresh-baked muffins, bacon, broiled parmesan crusted tomatoes, stewed plums, figs, dates, fresh berries...just to name a few items Chef Everett prepared for us. Their after hours snack selection was amazing too (vast supply of candy, cookies, and a great liquor/wine selection). And they serve Italian Illy coffee, which is our favorite. All in all, an amazing experience. We will definitely come back!

Room Tip: The James Room was great

We are locals and were just looking for a fun weekend away from home. My husband selected this B&B randomly because it was near Colonial Williamsburg and not far from one of our favorite Williamsburg restaurants Peter Chang's. When we got there and the owner mentioned that she also owns three restaurants (which are also some of our favorites) and a bakery we felt like we hit the food jackpot. The breakfast each morning was delicious, full of favorites but also things we'd never had before. It was a very relaxed atmosphere and they thought of little details like a sweets bar that guests were welcome to any time and at dusk they lit the garden with white bulb string lights.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Chesapeake, it had a queen bed, small shower but we liked it, also on the back of t...

We were on our 15th anniversary away from our 4 children for the 1st time in two years. The owners were kind, but this B and B is definitely not the heart of their service. They own several establishments in the area and their attention was clearly divided. The house and room were very clean and comfortable. The yard was also tastefully lit and seating relaxing. It was odd, but we were asked to call them because they were out and about. Also, we were not served breakfast in the house, but went to one of their restaurants at their request so they would not have to make it at the house. The food was excellent, but not the B and B experience we were expecting. There was dry cereal with no milk in the fridge. No fresh pastries as stated on the website. Also, no discounted Williamsburg tickets-I asked about this and the owner was not able to help me. The claw foot tub had no drain plug-I used a washcloth. The night light was burnt out. I know these are small, seemingly insignificant details, but they stand out when you are expecting a special getaway. Overall, we made the best of the trip and the owners were pleasant, but I was a little sad that they didn't seem very focused on this experience. We will be staying elsewhere when we return to Williamsburg.

What a great experience! The owners were welcoming and helped us get dinner reservations our first evening after a day of traveling. The room was clean and cozy. The location of the B&B makes it a quick 10 minute walk to the main shopping and dining area of town. Hands down the best breakfast I've had at a B&B. I hope to come back some day!

We enjoyed three evenings at David and Kathryn's B&B and left feeling more like family than guests. They have only owned the Colonial Capital for less than a year, but they have already established a wonderful haven for visitors. Our room, Potomac, was perfect for us as it was on the back side of the house with no traffic. It was very clean and, while not spacious, had enough room for us. The bath is a bit small with a claw tub/shower, but we didn't find this a problem at all. The bed was very comfortable, and there were two chairs as well. Overhead fan has remote control operation and was quiet. It was too cool for us to sit on the small private balcony, but in nicer weather, it would have been lovely. The closet was spacious and had a safe for valuables. The common rooms (a living room with piano, a dining room and adjoining eating area) were very nice and welcoming. As an added treat, jars of sweets are always available for guests to help themselves, and a cash honor bar provides some top-notch libations for those wishing to indulge. Coffee and tea also are available. We were the only guests the first night of our stay, and we asked if we could have breakfast earlier the next morning so as to get up and out touring. Kathryn offered us the option of eating at one of the wonderful restaurants they own in downtown Williamsburg (The Blue Talon) in substitution of breakfast at the inn if it would work better into our plans. She was very gracious in saying "please order whatever you wish, and we will cover all the charges including gratuity". We thought this was a wonderful idea, and we had a fabulous breakfast at the restaurant the next morning on our own schedule. Nothing can compare, however, to the amazing breakfast five-start chef and owner, David, made for us the following morning! The quality and the quantity of the fabulous dishes he presented us with were like nothing we've seen before, and we only regretted we were too full to try everything after sampling as much as we could manage. From wonderful baked goods of all kinds to stuffed tomatoes to fresh fruit to grits and delicious breakfast casseroles, it was all just fabulous. It was also pleasant to enjoy conversation with the other couple staying there. We managed to be in town on one of the two quiet weeks in the spring which was the only reason there were so few guests. Williamsburg was not at all crowded which allowed for a really leisurely and pleasant visit. The B&B is within walking distance of the historic district and is across from William and Mary College. We loved just being able to leave our car parked and walk around. David and Kathryn offered suggestions of places to dine, but we choose their restaurants, Trellis and Blue Talon, for dinner. Kathryn made reservations for us, and we had great meals at both places along with wonderful wine selections. We very much enjoyed having an opportunity to chat with both David and Kathryn during our stay; they are very interesting and warm people who, in spite of their busy lives, create a very relaxing and comfortable environment. (There was a minor problem with one of the bathroom fixtures in our room, and Kathryn had a plumber there within hours to resolve the issue.) We would make a special trip back to Williamsburg if only to stay here again!! It was that great.

Room Tip: Rooms on the back of the house may be more quiet as they are off the street. We were able to open o...
