Colonial Capital Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #12 of 22 Williamsburg B&B and Inns
Reviewed 21 July 2009

The house was a great spot to walk to Colonial Williamsburg and a short drive to Busch Gardens. We traveled with a 10 year old and she felt very comfortable in the sitting room of the Pamlico Suite. The house was spotless and George a gracious host.

The Colonial Capital is a cute little Inn located only a short walk from Colonial Williamsburg, which was really a deciding factor for us. The owner, George, is awkward at times but very friendly and helpful. He will go out of his way to be accomodating, which is very nice. The Inn has comfortable gathering spaces downstairs filled with magazines and books. The rooms are very comfortable (we settled right into ours) and well kept and our bathroom had an adorable free standing tub. The breakfasts were decent and George always kept us guessing. My husband and I enjoyed our honeymoon stay there and we are very grateful to George for making us so comfortable.

While the owners were pleasant and the rooms and decorations are wonderful, this wasn't our best experience in a B&B; George and (especially) Sharon just didn't seem to be as friendly or outgoing as we've experienced at other inns. I suppose that we are used to B&B hosts/hostesses being more extroverted; I felt as though these owners didn't want to talk to the people staying at the inn.

Location is easy to get to from Route 64 and great for walking into Colonial Williamsburg and the William & Mary campus. Breakfasts were tasty and had generous portions. Our room was very clean and the entire inn is decorated well. Off-street parking is convenient.

My husband and I just recently had a baby boy and this was the first night away from him in 7 weeks. We were celebrating my husband's birthday and were really looking forward to a nice evening. Upon returning from dinner, the owner was very rude and disrespectful to us, something we'd never experienced at any other bed and breakfast . It's under new management since the previous reviews. The location and food were good but if you're looking for a pleasant weekend getaway, I would not recommend this place.

Staying at the Colonial Capital B&B in Williamsburg with Barbara and Phil was great. Beautiful home with wonderful breakfast (ask to join the 'Cookie Club'). Short walk to the Colonial Capitol and all that is Williamsburg--best B&B experience! Clean and full of hospitality with friendly owners.

From the moment we made the reservation inkeepers Phil and Barbara extended themselves in every way. We emailed and asked for recommendations for restaurants- they phoned to make suggestions and offer to make reservations. When we decided on a change of cusine for one of the reservations they were happy to make another suggestion. And what was better - the selections were all excellent. Everything about this B & B is perfect - the location, the warm and welcoming inn, the comfortable (and spotless) rooms - comfortable and welcoming and innkeepers who make you feel at home and is if you were friends for the longest time- and wonderful breakfast with good food and meeting other guests. A pure delight and true "hospitality" in every sense of the word!

A lovely historical home with all the modern conveniences, and just a few minutes' walk from the historic district. A real idyllic romantic getaway. Barbara and Phil are amazingly welcoming and seem excited to be hosting you and helping make your visit a good one. (To be honest, their enthusiasm was almost overwhelming - the welcoming introduction to the area took 5 minutes!) Breakfasts are hearty. A bit heavier than we are used to or wanted, but that's a matter of taste.
