My review of the Almondy inn is mixed. The inn itself is fantastic , the rooms are exceptional and the breakfast exceeded my expectations. The downside was the noise from the night club next door that meant it was not possible to have a decent nights sleep. I accept this is not the fault of the inn but they need to people know in advance there maybe an issue with noise.

Good for A Night

The Inn and was fine for the night we spent in Newport. It is in the town - you can walk anywhere. The other guests were friendly as was the staff. Our room overlooked a neighboring parking lot and dumpster. More importantly, there was a local bar behind the inn and you could clearly hear the live music after midnight. Breakfast was fine, nothing unusual.

Great location.

Room was very clean, and charming, but we could hear footsteps above occasionally. Water pressure was not good, but I was happy that bathroom was so clean and bright. Evelyne was very nice and we enjoyed our stay so I feel a little badly saying that breakfast was only OK. The fresh fruit was wonderful and the hot entree was fine, but the baked items were dry. Coffee also wasn't very hot. Nonetheless, we were happy to stay there and were very glad to have free parking. The location is exceptional.

The Almondy Inn in Newport

We visited Newport for the USA stopover of the 2014-2015 Volvo Ocean Race. We chose the location due to its proximity to the downtown marina and its Its amenities.

Elegant & Charming

Amazing home where we were welcomed immediately. Evelyn and her husband are two of the sweetest people we have met. Our room was so beautiful and the view from our balcony was perfect. We had outstanding breakfast every morning. Homemade pastries, best coffee I've tasted and we were surprised each morning with something new and delicious to eat. We can not wait to go back for another visit. Newport, RI and The Almondy is a must on everyone's bucket list! See you again soon, Carl Lichti & Janine Dambrosio

Our three nights in Newport were made ultra comfortable and rewarding by Evelyne and her staff. The wine and cheese from 5pm to 6pm is a must. It is a great way to visit with other guests, and Evelyne was always there with her friendly advice and wonderful stories. Her breakfasts were devine. Definitely recommend!
