This was our first time staying at a Bed and Breakfast. Our experience exceeded our expectations. Everyone was so friendly. The staff went out of their way to answer questions. The room was spacious and airy. The bed was very comfortable. We will definitely be back!

Don't Judge a Book by it's Cover ...

The outside was very Victorian looking. Unfortunately, There were multiple negatives. The room was clostrophobic, shower dripped non-stop, TV went out intermittently, toilet paper in draw half used, teatime was sparse in that it was from 3 to 5pm and when we arrived at 4:00 it was half empty with no replenishment. Parking tight and highly anxiety provoking. Have you ever heard of no decaf coffee in the morning at breakfast!!? No staff could be found after 5pm. We will never go back to this inn again. False representation without compensation!

Great BnB in Newport

4.8 on February 27, 2017

I stayed at the Adele Turner Inn for Valentine's/President's Day weekend with my girlfriend. The BnB itself has nice little history and it was a joy to read more about where we were sleeping. The room itself was wonderful. The bed was comfortable and we had a nice view of the other houses in neighborhood. We also had a room with a fireplace with a wall timer - which was nice in the evenings. No complaints! I can't understate how great the service and onsite dining experience. The staff is warm and courteous. I was very impressed with the response time and their ability to make me feel like home. The breakfast was wonderful. I was excited to walk down the stairs for a delicious breakfast. I would stay at the Adele Turner Inn again.

Great B&B

The staff were excellent, friendly and prepared a delicious breakfast. Our room was very comfortable. Location was within walk of waterfront and many interesting sites in the area. Short drive to cliff walk and mansions. Highly recommend.

Great place to stay

We stayed for two nights in this charming and luxury B&B. Our room on the first floor was very comfortable and quiet. Coffee or tea plus cookies were available round the clock free of charge. The sleeping comfort was great. A very delicious breakfast was served in the very nice dining room. The staff was always very helpful and attentive. We would always stay again in this inn when visiting Newport.

The staff was great and the food was awesome. It is a great location. You can walk just about everywhere. The exterior needs some fresh paint and the hot tub has seen better days, but the view of the harbor was excellent.

Great Place

3.8 on April 23, 2016

Very nice people so nice and always there for you. Our bathroom was not so clean and the jacuzzi had a lot of hair iin it. I think it was never cleaned out. I did not take a jacuzzi because of that. The floor was also dirty. Overall I loved the place but I think they should clean a lot better.

Great stay in off-season

The Great Gatsby Room was wonderful, and we had a nice respite from the world here. Very close to downtown shops and restaurants. Friendly innkeepers and the breakfast was delicious!

Outstanding B & B
