Historical Traveler Reviews Wyndham Kingsgate Williamsburg
We just returned from a long weekend trip to the Kingsgate at Williamsburg. We had a wonderful time. We stayed in a one bedroom unit which had a small kitchen(very adequate) a seperate bedroom with a king size bed and a pull out sleeper sofa(perfect for the kids). The unit had everything we needed (washer and dryer in the bathroom) and was close to the pool complex which we loved. The pools were open until 10:30 at night, we went over every evening so the kids could swim. They also have putt-putt, tennis,adults only pool which we were never able to get in because we had kids with us, but it looked very nice, game room and exercise room. I can not say enough about how nice this place was and we got such a good deal from --------------------.
The condo was PERFECT. clean and stocked to the nines
I just got home from a week at Kingsgate in Wmsburg- Absolutely PERFECT. The condo was CLEAN, beautifully decorated, and the staff was very nice. I wasn't pressured into a timeshare meeting. They have a lot of amenities. The pools are in great shape- (there are 3 on premises), they have minature golf, tennis courts, game room and much more. The kitchen was so complete- it was like being at home. The kitchen has a dishwasher and they also have a washer and dryer in each unit that was great. I didn't have to bring a ton of dirty clothes and beach towels home with me. The grounds are beautiful. The location is great- very close to town. They think of everything- the unit even has a rechargable flashlight that came in handy on the nights we walked in town late looking for ghosts. Williamsburg is a great place- I have been going there for the last 20 years. I will certainly go back to Kingsgate and would highly reccommend it to anyone.
Great resort - excellent location
My wife and I stayed there in May 2004,first time-excellent service-great rooms-wonderful location-wonderful city.
A wonderful resort
By far this was the best resort I have stayed at in a long time. They attended to your every need. The one bedroom was spacious except the kitchen was a little cramped. But since we spent only two nights, that didn't matter. This is a family friendly, very clean resort with lots to do. Close by the the historic district. Price was great from Travelocity.
Great Place at A Great Price!
Visited Williamsburg on April 11, 2004. I found a great deal on the internet for this resort which suprised me. Great resort, good location, guarded entrance, large rooms, pleasant staff - absolutely no complaints! I certainly would stay here again!
Wonderful Setting, Awesome service.
A great place to stay! Rooms are large and well appointed. I have never had a problem and the staff bends over backwards to help. They book tickets for all W-burg attractions and have well equipped common areas for you to enjoy a great place. If you are planning to stay at a fairfield resort in W-burg, this is the best one because all of the services are at this location. Patriot's place is just as nice and is conveniently located to the extra ammenities, however.
A wonderful week
We stayed at this resort during the week of September 13-20-03. We won an auction on SkyAuction and were given our choice of weeks to stay. When we checked in, the woman at the desk was made aware that we did not own a timeshare and were not interested in owning one. This fact did not affect the wonderful treatment we received all week. Every aspect of this resort was a treat. The indoor and outdoor pools were wonderful and never seemed crowded. The exercise room was well equipped and always available when we wanted to use it. The units themselves were spacious, comfortable and clean. It was wonderful to have cleaning supplies available to use if I wanted them. I have stayed in other places where the cleaning supplies were locked up (even when I am on vacation, I don't want to live in a dirty unit). I was impressed by the number and variety of (mostly free) activities offered each day. There was something for all ages. As luck would have it, we were in the path of Hurricane Isabel. We lost electric power for two days. Each unit had an emergency flashlight with a back-up battery (we were able to read for hours before the first battery was exhausted). The personnel were extremely helpful in every way possible, even during the trying days immediately following the hurricane, they never lost their great attitudes. I am truly hoping to spend another week next summer at Fairfield at Kingsgate. There is so much to do in the area and in spite of the hurricane season, Sept. seems to be the perfect time of the year for a visit to this wonderful city. The resort was even more beautiful than we expected and I would recommend it to anyone.
Fairfield Williamsburg at Kingsgate is a beautiful resort. The units have very nice furniture and features including a whirlpool tub in the master bedroom, a CD player with several speakers (including the master bedroom) and a washer/dryer. The grounds are well maintained. If you ask for anything they bring it right away. They also have good directions and info for area attractions and restaurants. My only complaint would be that the rules at the pools should be enforced.
Great timeshare resort
We exchanged through RCI to stay at the Fairfield at Kingsgate, and this was our second stay at this particular resort. It is one of the most luxuriously decorated timeshare units we've ever seen, and we've been owners for over 20 years and exchanged to many locales. We luckily got a 3-bedroom, lock-off unit, so there were not only 3 bedrooms, but 3 full baths, including a spa in the master suite, but 4 TVs, built in stereos with wall speakers, VCRs, full kitchens, and two washer/dryer units. There are many activities, which we did not partake of, since we had a 3-day Busch Gardens/Water Country Bounce ticket, and we also went to Virginia Beach a couple of days. There are an indoor pool as well as an outdoor one, mini golf, hot tub, tennis, billiards, game room, movies, etc. This is a secured property with security guard at the gate. Excellent place to stay and take advantage of all the Hampton Roads area has to offer!
The Perfect Place to stay in Williamsburg!
I just got back from Fairfield Williamsburg at Kingsgate and I have to say my family and I had a wonderful time! The 3 bedroom villa we rented for 7 nights was well equipped and very clean. The pool areas, playground, and grounds were very well maintained. The location is great, close to all the attractions, outlet centers, food stores and plenty places to dine in or takeout. I will definately be going back there.

... Washington's arrival and a rousing speech imploring Williamsburg's residents to join the revolutionary militia. The girls were thrilled to see the cannons firing, emitting a sulfurous odor which reminded us of Rotorua (see Big Trip v.1). Touring the governor's palace and capitol building, we gained an appreciation for the tensions that led to Lord Dunmore's fleeing the colony with his family, and the growing movement to break away from the Crown. ...
... birthday is the 29th and we weren't sure exactly where we'd be, so we celebrated early. Tonight we took a tour, again in candlelight, called the Ghosts Among Us. It too had historical impetus as all of the stories involved actual residents of Williamsburg. We also explored Jamestown,(they've done a lot of new excavation) and were able to learn so many new things about America's first settlement. I knew that Yorktown had been a decisive battle in the revolution, but ...
... went to Colonial Williamsburg and got multi-day tickets. It is much larger than when I was here in 1977. So there is much more to see. Today it was rainy and Steve had never seen Monticello. So we drove about 100 miles, and out of the rain, to see Jefferson's home. Things have changed there as well. There is much more discussion about the dichotomy of Jefferson's position on the equality of all men and hatred of slavery, while continuing to be a slave owner. They are also rebuilding ...
... shower to clean up while she made dinner. We ate chili and homemade corn bread she had made this morning in the toaster oven and the heated the small raspberry pie we had bought in Bird-in-the-Hand and had a scoop of Blue Bell homemade vanilla ice cream on top. It was so right on a cold evening. We then watched TV while Ted concocted yet another plan. Stay tuned for big adventure later in December. Sheree worked on catching up on the monstrosity we call our blog. ...
... We would be actively participating in the storytelling, songs, and movements.
The first song was a gathering circle song. The entire group in the program made a circle and we became a family for the night. We learned that this was a welcoming song typically played at the beginning of the gathering. They were celebrating the members in their family that were still alive and with them and the bringing together of all enslaved peoples. A beat was kept with a drum ...
