Cozy B&B in a must have location in Newport!

5 on June 25, 2016

My wife and I stayed at Admiral Sims' House for the first time. This was by far the best B&B we have ever stayed at. The staff was so kind and accessible. The breakfast...oh the breakfast...outstanding! If you are unsure of where to stay in Newport, look no more, you've found your home away from home. We can't wait to come back with the kids as we will definitely be staying at Admiral Sim's House again! Casares Family
