A brilliant B&B in Newport, RI

4.4 on June 24, 2014

Newport, Rhode Island is a lovely city, with many old buildings, and there are several hotel and B&B options. Fortunately, we chose Francis Malbone House. This historic property was comfortable and interesting, with high ceilings, period furniture and convenient parking. Every member of staff was friendly, efficient and conscientious. The location was excellent, in the centre of the main area for shops and restaurants, close to the docks, and within walking distance of the famous mansions around Belleview Avenue. The Inn is built around a charming central courtyard open to guests and there are several communal rooms in which to read and relax. The Innkeeper and staff were very hospitable, and extremely helpful with recommendations for restaurants and places to visit. Breakfasts were delightful, with various options available, and we also enjoyed the varied afternoon teas – well worth getting back for before selecting the evening's restaurant. We were there for five nights and enjoyed our stay immensely. We would definitely recommend Francis Malbone House as the perfect place to stay in Newport.
