Nichols is an excellent B&B in the Providence area. We only stayed a night, but the owners were so sweet and the room so comfortable we wished we were there for longer. The room (Eleanor) was spacious enough and the bed was so comfortable. The TV had plenty of channels to flick through before bed, and the bathroom was well-stocked. Everything was very clean and cozy. Despite sharing walls with them, we didn't hear the other guests once. Walt's breakfast was delicious, and the other guests were lovely to dine with. From the note on the door welcoming you to the personalized breakfast, it really felt like being home - but being pampered there! Other B&B's might have more updated bathrooms or more amenities, but for the reasonble room rates, you won't find a better place to stay in the area. Not even close.

We stayed here because we wanted a different experience from a chain hotel, and with Nichols' rivaling prices, why not? We thoroughly enjoyed the hospitality of Walt & Dorothy -- they were helpful from giving tips on dinner places to providing a DELICIOUS breakfast! The house itself was very homey with all sorts of charming, country-like touches. Sure, it's not as spacious as a hotel room, but with the TLC that is provided by Walt & Dorothy, we'd definitely stay there over a hotel if we ever pass through that area again... and we'd recommend it to others! Thanks so much!!

We stayed one night in this charming house. The room (Muriel) was very comfortable and had all we needed. Dorothy and Walt are great and made us feel like home. Breakfast is amazing! I'll definitely come back

Many thanks to Dorothy and Walt for having us at their home. It is nice to be able to stay at a residence that really welcomes you. We always stay here whenever we are in the area because we feel comfortable and enjoy our talks around the breakfast table each morning. As usual, the food is varied and delicious. We will be back.

My friends (from Australia) and I (from Portugal) spent a night at the Nichols B n B and it was surely one of the highlights of our visit to USA. The breakfast table was positively groaning, with a selection of hot and cold dishes, all beautifully presented. The rooms and public areas were decorated to match the age of the house and every conceivable item had been added, to ensure one's comfort. century. -Most importantly, the genuine friendliness and helpfulness of Walt was way beyond the call of duty. We were so sorry we could only stay one night. Dee Orvalho

Everything about my stay was ever so pleasant. My only complaint is that I could not stay for longer! ~ John Robbins from Rocky Mount, N.C.

The Nichols Guest Rooms was a quaint, charming B&B. Dorothy and Walt were very warm and friendly making us feel as welcome as life-long friends. They were helpful and knowledgeable about the attractions in the area. Breakfast was fabulous and we had the opportunity to meet and talk with other interesting guests from around the country. The Muriel Room was delightful and the entire house had the warmth and charm of an old New England home from the 1800s that has all the modern conveniences. My husband and I felt that Dorothy and Walt made our trip to the New England area memorable and we look forward to a return trip. Thank you Dorothy and Walt from TX.
