We came across the Hornsby House Inn while touring Yorktown during our son's orientation at William and Mary. We decided to stay here, instead of Williamsburg, on our next visit. This B&B is a delightful alternative to the chain hotels and is competitively priced. We had a pleasant two day stay and met some wonderful fellow guests. Dave and Phil are the perfect hosts, along with Jeanette (a budding opera star). From the afternoon wine and cheese by the fireplace to the hearty homemade breakfast, we were made to feel right at home. The Magnolia Room was just right with a beautiful view of the Yorktown Victory Monument. We can't wait to come back!
Most enjoyable stay; more like visiting old friends than spending the night at a stranger's house. Breakfast was yummy! Greg and Lori and Dave are friendly and fun people. We recommend The Inn at Tabbs Creek without reservation.
Would go back in a heartbeat. Plenty of rooms in the house to relax. Very friendly and accommodating service. Very comfortable bedding. Simple but very tasty breakfast. Plenty of food. Awesome collections.
The Williamsburg Sampler B&B is a wonderful place to get away and relax. It is conveniently located close to Colonial Williamsburg as well as W&M. The staff is so friendly and kind and the breakfast amazing! We will definitely be returning!
This is a really great B&B. It is in pristine condition and is decorated perfectly. It is close to Colonial Williamsburg and a short drive to Busch Gardens. The service is beyond outstanding. We once left a jacket in the closet and without us calling they mailed it to us. Highly recommended!
This B&B was beautiful, nice "homey" feel. Housekeeping was super nice, and everything looked and smelled so clean! The only drawback was the breakfast. It was tasty, but there wasn't much offered.
Our family decided to visit Williamsburg for the weekend before Christmas to have a little time together before the busyness of the Holidays. We wanted a family style accommodation that would allow our young children. Aldrich House was one of very few that allows children and our daughter and son really enjoyed the spacious room and at home feel of a Bed and Breakfast instead of a hotel. Tom and Sue were very hospitable and we enjoyed talking with them during breakfast each morning, which was plentiful and delicious. we will very much consider another stay with Aldrich House when in Williamsburg again.
Last minute reservation right before New Years. They accommodated a single night, the staff were very friendly, and the breakfast was delicious. All kinds of nooks and crannies in the house for public use and some great period pieces and antiques that were a nice touch. Definitely recommend.
Holiday getaway for college daughter on the train from DC (4 hours one way). Easy walk to Williamsburg Manor from train station. Great location by W&M and shops, restaurants and colonial district. Southall Blue Room was beautiful and cozy with private bath. Coffee, many snacks and baked goods were delicious and appreciated. House is lovely. Check in went smoothly with envelope taped to front door (alerted to this prior to arrival) as there is no staff onsite after 5pm.. Breakfasts were delicious! One wish---It was so cold during this week that a fire burning in a working fireplace would have been enjoyable. Overall a wonderful experience. Will recommend to friends and family.
The Hornsby Inn is a great B&B. The house has a lot of charm. The breakfast was delicious! The owners sat down and told some if the history of the house and area. We recommend highly recommend the Hornsby Inn.
What a beautiful home in a beautiful town. This is the perfect place to stay for a cozy, colonial getaway. The rooms were well kept and comfortable, and the breakfast was absolutely delicious. I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Williamsburg.
My wife and I have stayed at the Hornsby House Inn three times over the past four years. This is a beautiful home in historic Yorktown. David and Phil Hornsby go far beyond what is typical in a bed and breakfast setting to make their guests feel welcomed, special, and comfortable. We always end up feeling more like residents of this community instead of guests in a strange town.
The Cedars is located directly across from William and Mary and an easy walk to the historic area of Williamsburg. We only used our car for a side trip to Jamestown. The owners are a young couple who recently acquired the property. They are enthusiastic and working hard to make staying at their property a unique experience. While we were there, they tried several new, delicious recipes for breakfast. Our room was large with a very comfortable bed. The bathroom was smallish, but this is an older building and to be expected. Everyone was friendly and accommodating.
A lovely history-filled house. About an 8 minute walk to Colonial Williamsburg, which makes a perfect location. Divine Breakfasts that were prepared for the taste buds to tingle. Alex and Laura (Innkeepers) are new to their position, but already obtaining raves in their talents.
This is the review I just submitted on TripAdvisor for the Inn ¿¿ : I don't know how to start off and put into words how amazing and great our experience was at the Hornsby House Inn. From the moment I spoke to David to book the room, I knew it was going to be a great experience. He was very kind, friendly and helpful over the phone. We were due to arrive after 9:30p on Thursday and it was no trouble at all. When we pulled up to the house our jaws dropped. It's a beautiful home! We came inside and texted Jeanette to come let us in and give us our key to our room. She was extremely pleasant and courteous when we met her. She made us feel at home there. The room was spacious and beautiful and clean. We had the best sleep in years in the bed! We stayed in the Hornsby Room on the 3rd floor with great views of Yorktown and the monument near the water. We woke up to the smell of an amazing aroma of bacon, eggs and coffee. It also tasted as great as it smelled. Jeanette made "to die for" eggs Benedict with hollandaise sauce that was Perfection! She's amazing. David also had muffins, sausage and bacon, homemade cereal and local ground coffee... which is the best coffee I've ever had. David joined us for breakfast each morning, promptly at 8:45am. He always gave us history on the house and the Yorktown battle which was great. The best had to be stories of him and his brothers growing up in the house and the headaches they gave his mother. Everyday at 5pm they offer you wine and cheese, they made sure my glass was never empty. David will give you tips and passes if you need them for the surrounding tourist attractions. David and his brother Philip were a joy to talk to. Jeanette was a pleasure to get to know and was great. I highly recommend choosing this B&B to stay in, you won't be disapointed! We'll be back again, I wish sooner than later.
We stayed here only one night but it was wonderful. We are new parents to a 7 week old baby girl and needed a nice, quiet night to ourselves. We received a warm welcome from Alex who was very nice. He explained that him & his wife are the new owners & are planning on updating the place. We noticed that some things did need to be updated however; we hope that they will keep the colonial charm/theme going. We stayed in the Martha Washington room. It's the smallest room in this B & B but it was very cozy. We would love to stay here again sometime in the future. The area is beautiful and there is so much to do & see all with in walking distance or a short drive.
The rooms were clean and the beds were comfortable. They gave a nice library for those who like to read. We were there after Thanksgiving and it was cold. The owners were very accommodating for special needs. They have a wine and cheese tasting every day a 5pm.
The bed and breakfast was just what we needed. very clean and very quite. The on site food ,was good, but to be fair, the owners had family in town and we where the only guest that night. We have already begun to plain our next trip here.
The system wouldn't let me check the five stars for "outstanding", so I had to select "exceeded my expectations". But no doubt about it--Williamsburg Sampler B&B is an outstanding and perfect place to stay! We stayed for a weekend but I wish we had more time to enjoy the house and get to know Ike and Lori better. They were both so personable! And Ike was always available to us if we needed anything, which we appreciated. Also, we really lucked out because the other guests were fantastic. I really enjoyed our breakfasts together, learning about each other and trading stories from the weekend. We stayed in the King Suite which was such a delight. Especially the fireplace! And did I mention there are 2 TV's? Awesome. Additionally, the B&B has a snack bar on the first floor where you can get cookies, hot chocolate, coffee/tea, etc. when you're just hanging in the house. I love that little touch. In terms of location, you couldn't get better! A short walk to the town for dining and shopping, and a short drive away to all the attractions. You won't regret staying here!
