Great comfort in the middle of the City

4.8 on March 05, 2014

My fiancee and I stayed at the Black Duck February 28-March 1 in the Riesling room. We took advantage of a getaway offer on livingsocial. Location: The Inn was located just a short walk from the shops and restaurants along the wharfs, which is primarily what we sought to explore. There were many great restaurants easily in walking distance. A great benefit was the parking lot. Though we were certainly not in Newport during the busy season, finding street parking still would have been difficult. It was very nice to be able to leave the car without worrying about running afoul of meter readers. Accommodations: We had a very comfortable bed and a private bathroom (shower, no tub) on the first floor in the rear. The staff kept the room nice and clean. We did not spend a lot of time in the room, so there isn't much to say. If there is anything negative to say, it might be that the noise from the kitchen could be heard in the bedroom. However, that did not prevent us from sleeping in until 8:30 each morning. Food: Saturday morning's breakfast featured french toast and bacon as the main course. It was freshly made. There was also fruit available, as well as what appeared to be homemade cranberry muffins. After having the breakfast at around 9 am, we did not feel the need to eat again until around 3:30, which is a very long time for us. Sunday we had a fritatta, bacon, and more fruits. Once again, the meal was freshly cooked. The hostess was quite friendly and engaged in conversation when she was not called to her other duties. Coffee, tea, and cookies were available in the main room all day for guests. Value: The livingsocial deal offered two nights, a bottle of wine and a box of chocolates upon check in. I don't know how the seasonal nightly rates would compare with the deal, but I feel I got a good bargain. I would definitely look to stay at the Black Duck again.

Absolutely Great!!

Booked this place pretty last minute after deciding to get away for Labor Day. Booked the room no problem. When we checked in and went to the room, it was kinda stuffy, although it wasn't too hot out. I called the front desk, and indicated it was pretty hot and was there anything they could do.. WELL THEY DID!! They upgraded us for FREE to the Champagne Suite without even a word. The room was absolutely great, the staff extremely friendly, and you can't be any closer to the action. Its only like 50ft to Thames Street, although even at night it was pretty quiet at the room. I WOULD DEFINATELY STAY AGAIN!! THANKS FOR EVERYTHING!

A Rare Find

4.4 on August 19, 2010

From the time I arrived until I left staff exceeded my expectations, form check-in, breakfast made fresh daily and one of the cleanest places I have ever been. Location is excellent just a short drive to the beaches, once back for the day you can park your car and walk 5 minutes to downtown, and spend an evening of shopping and dining all within walking distance. Staff will go out of their way to accommodate any request.
