In 2005, an entirely new dimension was added to TWW’s hospitality portfolio with the construction of Wedmore Place, a European style country hotel to provide for on-site overnight accommodations. It boasts 31,500 finished square feet with 28 rooms and suites complemented by spacious common areas and naturally light-filled corridor hallways on each level.

Wedmore Place was conceptualized as a place of quiet surroundings, featuring art, history, and culture throughout the luxurious, boutique hotel. The owner’s personal research, attention to detail, and passion for recreating the feel of the English countryside is fully reflected in what management believes is their virtual “capstone” achievement in elevating TWW to the position of Virginia’s premier food, wine, and hospitality destination.

Since opening in 2007, Wedmore Place has received numerous accolades and awards including (i) receiving the Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence, recognizing the highest rated hotels in the Greater Williamsburg Area, and regularly maintaining a rating of over 4.5/5 stars; (ii) recommended by Condé Nast Johansens, an unequaled collection of luxury hotels, luxury spas, country house hotels, boutique hotels, inns, resorts, restaurants and meeting venues; (iii) has been accepted to Select Registry of Distinguished Inns of North America, a leading quality assurance organization to the lodging industry consisting of 400 select inns located throughout North America; (iv) the Golden Service Crown 2009 by Excelsior Business Club of Europe, becoming one of only 50 awards given by Excelsior to U.S. hotels based on the opinions of anonymous travelers who have experienced the hospitality and food at the hotels and restaurants on their list of recipients.
Wedmore Place is comprised of 28 well-appointed rooms and suites that are individually designed to emulate the style and grace of a particular European province. Careful detail was paid to each facet of the design, including the selection of colors, furnishings, wall hangings, and other décor.
The rooms of the hotel are segmented into four categories: Tradition, Classic, Superior Rooms, and Suites. Current room rates range from $165 to $395 per night depending upon the room category. Suites range from $295 to $750 per night. At these price points, the upscale accommodations of Wedmore Place represent a compelling value relative to other hotel properties that offer close proximity to Colonial Williamsburg.
Dining at Café Provencal
The Café Provençal, located on the lower level of Wedmore Place, serves French-inspired dishes, featuring locally sourced ingredients; open for dinner Tuesday through Sunday. The Café Provençal has received highly favorable comments from guests as reflected on restaurant comment cards, OpenTable.com, and TripAdvisor. Since 2014, the Café Provencal received the Restaurant Award from Wine Spectator annually, recognizing dining establishments with exceptional wine lists.
