The Fife and Drum is located right in the center of Williamsburg just minutes walk from restaurants and the historic center. Yorktown and Jamestown are no more that 20 minutes drive so this is ideal if you are visiting the wider area.
The rooms are charming, a lot of thought has gone into decoration and amenities. Car parking is no problem with reserved spaces just around the corner.
The staff are very helpful. You can buy admission tickets at the B&B at a slight discount which we took advantage of. They even lent us one of the self guided tour CD’s which was very helpful.
Coffee, tea, hot chocolate and cookies are available 24/7 which was very welcome at the end of a long day. My only criticism was lack of choice at breakfast. The quality and quantity of the food was very good. However, it would have been nice to have at least one other cereal on offer beside Granola. Also there were (delicious) biscuits but nothing else. In fairness a couple of slices of bread were provided on request but no toaster.
I guess the bottom line is whether we would stay here again if in the area and the answer is a definite ‘yes’. My comments on the breakfast didn’t really detract from our enjoyment of our stay.
