A quiet quaint location

A first time stay at Adele Turner, but a frequent visitor to B&B's and was very pleasantly rewarded. The themed rooms were decorated with great care and was an added touch to our stay. The towel made into a swan adoring the hot tub became a fun topic for conversation. Very friendly, accommodating, but professional service from Catherine and her staff made us feel very comfortable. The breakfast of crab cakes and poached was outstanding as well as the cold service. Catherine went out of her way to provide wonderful gluten free breakfast and afternoon tea for my friend Carole. A short walk to restaurants and to the wharf area. We will stay at Adele Turner on our next visit to Newport.

Great experience

The first B&B my partner and I ever stayed at, and it was definitely a great introduction to bed and breakfasts. We stayed in the Music Festivals room, and loved it. Very homey and lovely atmosphere. Everyone was nice and very helpful. Loved the whirlpool and fireplace in the room. We attended the afternoon tea right after checking in, and the dining area is super cute. Breakfast was great (we both had the poached eggs on crabcakes, highly recommended). Definitely will be doing this more!

Our stay at Adele Turner was wonderful. It was my husband first try at a B&B and it could not have been a better experience to convince him that B&B are so much more enjoyable to stay at then cold impersonal hotels. The hosts were warm and welcoming.

Outstanding Inn!

The Adele Turner Inn is fabulous! The location is excellent - close to the waterfront but not too close. On a quiet street with a lovely front yard to relax! The staff is very accommodating, the breakfast was excellent, extremely comfortable bedding, luxurious bath towels! The Adele Turner Inn has all you could ask for in a luxury bed and breakfast. We would definitely stay there again!
