Valentines Weekend!

5 on February 13, 2018

My husband surprised me with a weekend getaway the weekend before Valentines Day The staff and property were awesome. Great service and and a wonderful dining experience at the Ocean 21. Wow is all I can say!

Best getaway spot

4.0 on December 21, 2017

This place is so quiet and such a cute little getaway spot my fiancé and I love to go to. He proposed to me in one of the rooms after a 5 star dinner at the restaurant that is attached called 21 oceanfront. They do a dinner package with your room stay and give you a bottle of champagne and $120 gift cert for dinner. Its truly an amazing and magical place right on the Newport Beach Pier.

Beautiful ocean view

This was our second stay at Doryman’s. Our room was beautiful and the ocean view was amazing. We definitely will stay again.

Love the Doryman's

Anniversary weekend

4.4 on November 26, 2017

The room was clean and had been updated since our last visit. The elevator was not functioning, but was only an issue on check in and checkout with luggage. The staff was great the breakfast was adequate. We have stayed here many times and the value remains good and we will definitely be back.

Ocean Sounds B & B

3.2 on July 01, 2017

If you want to hear ocean waves and be steps away from the beach, this is the place for you! If you want a B & B with lots of amenities and a quiet atmosphere, look elsewhere.

Great stay!

47th Anniversary

2.8 on April 07, 2017

Expected 4 1/2 star weekend from a prior tour but ended up with a disappointing 1 1/2 star. Arrived Fri nite. Very noisy room with roof top bar 30 ft away. We had anticipated the noise and willing to trade off for the great room. VERY squeaky bed, any movement during the night awakened us but still we were OK. Saturday night it fell apart. Had the dinner package 21 Oceanfront and 6pm reservation. Looking forward to prime rib at the 21 for weeks. They had none and no explanation. Recommended steak Diane over fillet for the wife which was a huge mistake. I settled for stuffed Portobello which was average. Gravely disappointing dinner after two prior dinners over the past year that were exceptional. Back to the room at 10. The party on the roof adjacent was exceptionally loud, had to keep the windows closed. AC did not function properly and had to shut it off and suffer a stuffy fitful sleep night. Looking forward to the Jacuzzi but could not get it to function. Prime reason for the Bellagio room selection. Too late to complain. Next morning found out no maintenance was available for the room functionality issues. However one bright spot was the retraction at the desk to move us to another room (7). They really tried to help for which we were grateful and that room ended up being fine albeit no Jacuzzi tub. I suppose you could call it one of those perfect storm weekends which should have been really special but ended up humdrum.

Mother-Daughter Getaway

My daughter and I choose a different location each year to meet and have girl time. This was our 9th year! Our choice was Newport Beach, and our bed and breakfast (Doryman's) was just a lucky find. Rooms are exceptionally beautiful and the staff is wonderful.

Best Hidden Gem In Newport

5 on April 01, 2017

My wife and I stayed at the Doryman for our 10th anniversary and I have to say I have a new favorite place to stay! I've surfed right out front for years and never realized it was there! The rooms were unique and offered great views. The service was impeccable. The restaurant was second to none. And even in the middle of the Newport Pier may lay it was quiet and private. I would highly recommend the Doryman to anyone!
