We stayed in the Caroline Suite at Queen Anne. The entire house, including our suite, was very well appointed, with expensive-looking furnishings (some antique) and very nice paintings, and our suite had a comfortable king bed. While with any bed & breakfast experience in an old house, you expect some inconvenience, this suite and house simply had too many negatives to merit a positive review. We did not hear a lot of noise from other rooms, but there is no protection from noise in the common areas. There is a common sitting area with a nice fireplace down the hall from the Caroline, but if someone is in there, you may as well ask them to join you in your room. Also, the kitchen is right outside your door, so when breakfast preparations begin, sleep time is over. There is no off-street parking. The Caroline has a flat roof, so if it rains (which it did both nights of our stay), the overhead noise is noteworrthy. To make matters worse, the ceiling leaked and dripped water on our luggage. A lovely full breakfast is served. It was very good, but nothing really remarkable or special. The Caroline has a sleep number bed, but that feature didn't work. The bathroom vanity is an antique piece that is touted as special, but the mirror is so low that a person of average height can't really use it. Service was adequate but no personal touch--very commercial. Compared to other places we have stayed in Fredericksburg, this was not a good value.
