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.

We are repeat guests and will return again. The rooms are pristine, welcoming and comfortable. Fireplaces throughout. Delicious breakfasts and treats with afternoon tea. The innkeepers and their staff could not be nicer or more accommodating. Love the location right in the heart of the waterfront.

We were introduced to the Francis Malbone House Inn by friends about 10 years ago, and have been returning each year since. The Inn and it's staff provide us with every amenity we could ask for. The breakfasts are outstanding, as are the afternoon high teas. Both are complemented with burning logs in fireplaces, and spacious sitting rooms to relax and be pampered. We always look forward to our return visits.
