Love this place. We have stayed there a couple of times now. Right on the beach with so many places to eat or hang out within a 2 minute walk.

First Time at Doryman's

Great place to stay if you're looking for downtown on the water. Its busy but this place is tucked away almost incognito. We stayed 4 nights and it was an overall wonderful experience. The rooms are clean and each room is different from the next. We had a room right off the outdoor breakfast dining area and it was as if it was a nice extension of our room to have a cup of coffee or late night drink. The nights were a bit loud outside on the weekend but if the TV was on the windows closed it was very manageable. The bed was super comfy and linens were of a good quality. If I were to have one complaint it would be that there is limited opportunity to 'hang' your wet/damp towels (only one hook on the back of the bathroom door). We did not dine there other than breakfast. Other than that it was great. I'd stay there again in a heartbeat!

A beautiful room with a beautiful view

My girlfriend and I wanted a quick getaway. I found this place and booked it. It was nice, but the rooms are pretty small even for just two people. The view is great if you get the right room(which we did).

What a treasure. The most difficult part of our stay was choosing between so many of the lovely rooms. We finally settled on Room 5 and couldn't have been more happy.....although we definitely plan to travel back and try them all. Marian was a fantastic host and made sure everything was perfect for us. What a delightful woman. The guest room was beautiful and extremely comfortable with a fantastic view of the ocean and pier front. So much to do in Newport but just lying in bed sipping coffee and watching the surfers come in and out was pretty relaxing. Also enjoyed a fantastic dinner at 21 Oceanfront the first night of our stay. Can't say enough wonderful things about Doryman's. Already recommending it to everyone we meet. Thank you. Gary.
