The staff were very accommodating polite and helpful. The room was beautiful with the sitting room adjacent. The food was good but there could've been a little bit more food. We only had two towels which was not enough for my sister and I to shampoo her hair and shower. It would've been nice to have more towels. Great location which was near downtown and easy to find.

Nice place but pricey, would go back.

We had a very nice stay during a busy holiday weekend. We had read other reviews that rooms were noisy since next to a popular bar, however we did not find the noise bothersome given the close location to Thames. The wait staff was superb however it would have been nice to see more interaction with the owners who were in and out of the inn during our stay. Overall, a great stay in a very nice place but missed the personal touch of visiting with the owners.
4.6 on June 29, 2016
We had an excellent visit. Stayed 3 nights and could not have been happier with the service and cleanliness of the Almondy Inn. The new owners were so nice and accommodating, as were the staff. We would definitely come back.

This was our first time at the Inn. We stayed in the Burgandy Suite. It was beautiful and very comfortable. The staff was friendly! The Inn is in a great location. Walking distance to all the restaurants. I highly recommend this place!

A quaint little inn right in the heart of downtown Newport, 1 block away from restaurants, bars, and the marina--perfectly located. Quiet and relaxing atmosphere, great and attentive staff, delicious breakfast and lovely rooms with a fireplace. I would definitely stay here again!

Wonderfully charming little B&B with friendly service. But what makes this place unbeatable is it's great location, just steps from the main street, just park at house and walk to great restaurants, shops and the water. Great breakfast too!
4.2 on November 04, 2015
My first visit to a B&B and the Almondy Inn did not disappoint. First and foremost it was clean, Inn keepers could not have been nicer, delicious breakfast and within walking distance to many of the sights. One small complaint is that it is across from a club/bar and the noise of the music and the people coming out at closing time can be disturbing. But overall, it was lovely and I would definitely return.
2.8 on October 24, 2015
This is a lovely property and in an excellent location. The photographs are a great way of choosing a room and overall, we enjoyed our stay. However it was disappointing to find that the washbasin had two significant 'web-like' cracks in the bowl - I am sure one night's cost would have more than covered it's replacement. Also, whilst breakfast was nice, it seemed a little meagre - extra toast or cereal etc would have been appreciated.

Evelyne and Herber were terrific hosts for our stay. They participated in the late afternoon socials (wine and cheese) and were very interesting people to talk to. Evelyne's breakfasts were wonderful and started your day on a very high note. The Inn is very close to shopping, restaurants and the Newport Visitor Center - all within easy walking distance.
4.4 on September 20, 2015
Lovely home with updated amenities. Centrally located which allows for easy walks to restaurants and activities. The hosts were very gracious and accommodating. The gourmet breakfasts were delicious. Highly recommended.

We had a wonderful time at the Almondy Inn. We arrived early and were allowed up to our room and were even given a tour of this beautiful inn. Thank you to all for such a warm welcome.
5 on August 23, 2015
Fantastic place. Great location, lovely rooms, charming atmosphere. Evelyn and Herman are the perfect hosts, and breakfast is a triumph ! If you are looking to stayi in Newport Rhode Island you really MUST stay here, you could not do any better.
4.6 on June 18, 2015
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.
3.0 on June 09, 2015
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.
3.8 on June 03, 2015
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.
5 on June 01, 2015
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.
5 on May 25, 2015
This was our second time at Almondy Inn; I would not stay elsewhere. Evelyne is a charming hostess, and the breakfasts she serves are delicious.Thank you Evelyne - its truly a pleasure to know you. Nancy & Joe
5 on May 11, 2015
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
5 on October 29, 2014
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!
4.6 on October 23, 2014
An excellent stay in a beautiful turn of the century house near the waterfront in Newport. Friendly and welcoming host, and breakfasts enhanced by conversation with interesting fellow guests

We greatly enjoyed our stay at the Almondy Inn. Evelyn is a wonderful hostess and we had a delicious breakfast each day. The Inn is convenient and within walking distance to restaurants etc. We would recommend staying here.

We had a wonderful stay at the Almondy in Newport. We were there for a week in mid-September. We had a great time. The room was very nice. The breakfasts were outstanding. We were in the Lanai Suite which had a small balcony with a view of the harbor. The location was great. It's close to everything on Thames Street and the harbor.
5 on October 13, 2014
This B & B was so lovely. We stayed in the Burgandy suite on the first floor. It was wonderful, cozy, peaceful and quiet. Breakfasts are amazing. Always a couple of kinds of pastries, lots of cut up fresh fruit, and a wonderful assortment of egg dishes. The proprietors are friendly and helpful. The inn is about 1 1/2 blocks from downtown on the waterfront. A great, convenient location! If we visit Newport again, we will certainly plan to stay there again.
5 on September 25, 2014
Our room was small, but beautiful with a magnificent view of the habor. Evelyne was a gracious hostess, and very interesting to talk with. She gave us many suggestions for our stay. We definitely will come back to the Almondy when we return to Newport!
5 on September 08, 2014
Repeat customers for 5 years! Great, I mean great breakfasts....wine social appreciated and owner conversation is engaging.... Great everything!
3.6 on August 09, 2014
Newport is extremely expensive, so the high price of the Almondy Inn was in fact quite reasonable. Excellent location. Rooms are small, but that is to be expected in an old house. Newer bathroom fixtures would improve the rooms a lot. Very good breakfast. Charming hostess - discreet, and a good reader of people's desire for sociability (or not).
3.4 on August 07, 2014
Although our stay was very brief, we found Almondy Inn very homely and our hosts, Evelyne and Herber most welcoming and helpful. Their restaurant recommendation was great, I don't think we would have stumbled on it due to it's location upstairs. Almondy Inn is very conveniently located, an easy stroll to shops and restaurants, it is very clean and has comfortable beds (except the bedpost is in the way of the television screen). Great place to stay.
5 on August 05, 2014
What a wonderful place! Great location, super clean, great value, very special innkeeper Evelyne who made our stay so nice. We will stay here again the next time we are in Newport,
3.6 on July 04, 2014
Our stay at the Almondy was wonderful but just be prepared to join the danceclub (One Pelham) until about 1am. Not a big deal for us as we were up late but could spoil your restful slumber if you are an early sleeper.

Loved our stay. Perfect location with wonderful accommodations and delicious breakfast.

Excellent location! The owners are so lovely and genuine! Their attention to detail in building this bed and breakfast was exceptional! My husband and I are frequent visitors to Newport and we agreed that this will be our "go to" place in the future

Overall a lovely experience - great location for walking around town, breakfast was awesome and inn size was perfect.
4.6 on May 05, 2014
We just enjoyed a perfect getaway, Evelyne is a wonderful hostess,very kind and helpful. The Burgundy Suite was large and comfortable with a fireplace in the bedroom, just what was needed on a rainy night. The breakfasts were delicious and satisfying. We can't wait to return.
3.4 on April 30, 2014
We were greeted warmly by the gracious owner. The atmosphere was welcoming and friendly. However it is located beside an extremely loud nightclub/bar and on both nights of our stay we were unable to sleep before 1.30 am. If you want to sleep don't stay there.

Lovely in, beautifully appointed, Evelyne was a wonderful hostess.

The Almondy Inn was a delightful and hospitable getaway. Herber and Evelyn were gracious, welcoming, and accomodating. The accomodations were well appointed; the sheets were exquisite. We were extremely comfortable.

Quite simply the Almondy Inn is fabulous! The rooms are immaculate and beautifully appointed and the breakfast is a delicious start to the new day. It was Evelyn and Herber, our wonderful hosts however that made this weekend so marvelous. Ahead of our visit Evelyn assisted me in several planning activities for the first weekend my wife and I have had without children in tow for years. She was absolutely wonderful in recommending a variety of special little surprises that I scheduled for my wife. My wife and I have been visiting Newport for many years and we have truly found our second home in this beautiful city by the Sea. We so look forward to the next opportunity to visit them and stay at the Almondy Inn.

What a wonderful Bed and Breakfast. Theresa was phenomenal. She made our stay comfortable and relaxing. Beautiful house with lots to do nearby.

Our second trip to Newport and first to the Almondy Inn. Put the B&B we previously stayed at to shame. Beautiful inn, outstanding hospitality and a 5 star breakfast. Well worth the extra cost. Will definitely be our go to place in Newport.
5 on November 09, 2013
My wife and I recently stayed overnight at the Almondy Inn in downtown Newport. It exceeded out expectations. Its convenient location to Thames Street made it unnecessary to take the car to shop or enjoy restaurant week. Evelyne was welcoming and informative. Our room was outstanding with fireplace, Jacuzzi, tv and free internet. Wine and cheese in the afternoon and the delicious breakfast in the morning added to our mini vacation. We will definitely be returning for a longer stay next year.

An absolutely wonderful weekend stay at Almondy Inn. Location, accommodations, hospitality...perfect in every way!

Great location. Very hospitable hosts.
5 on October 31, 2013
The Almondy Inn was a beautiful and enjoyable place to stay. We enjoyed every aspect of the experience. Evelyne and Herber are such warm, and down to earth people. Conversing with them and the other couples that were also staying there was such a fun and uplifting time. Wine and cheese each evening, an unbelievable breakfast that was custom to each persons nutritional restrictions, and a suite that was downright gorgeous! What more could you ask for? Each person was tended to in a personal way, down to my sugar and carb restrictions. Evelyne made me muffins that were unbelievable, something I haven't had in about 8 years. It is an experience that you shouldn't miss! Thank you again, Evelyne and Herber....can't wait till we book again!
5 on October 30, 2013
We stayed at the inn this past weekend. The Inn, service Location was perfect. They went out of their way to accommodate our friend's special dining restrictions and were very attentive. We were there for a belated anniversary weekend
4.2 on October 25, 2013
One night at the Almondy Inn is definitely not long enough. The room begged us to kick back and relax, but we were off and running around Newport - where there is so much to do - one can't see everything even in 1 week! It was not our first visit, and now that we discovered this delightful Inn - so close to the Wharf, we will return. The Blue Bay room was spacious and had partial views of the harbor and the bridge. The large jacuzzi tub was excellent. it was a little difficult to keep water from splashing onto the bathroom floor when using the shower. The room was very clean except for the windowsills. The bed was comfortable with nice linens, although the mattress was starting to sag slightly toward the middle. It was such a lovely room with blue and gold drapes, a fireplace, and elegant touches of antiques. Herber and Evelyn were wonderful hosts.The Inn is restored with beautiful furnishings and large windows. Evelyn's breakfast of blueberry pancakes with a hint of lemon zest and vanilla were fabulous. She also presented home made cappuccino muffins with white choc. chips. The coffee was good, and strong enough- which we do not always find to be the case in R.I. We could hear music wafting up from the wharf during the Seafood Festival, and if the bar next door has loud music on Saturday nights, you may hear that as well. Otherwise, the street is nice and quiet at night. We slept well. What a joy to be able to park in their private lot and walk to nearly everything you would want to see. Parking downtown is not easy during peak seasons. The inn creates a stress free experience.
4.6 on October 23, 2013
We were extremely pleased with our experience at the Almondy Inn. The room (Blue Room) was well appointed, clean and had excellent seating available. Evelyn was a wonderful host. The breakfasts were different each day, the service was excellent. Being a small B&B, the mornings were delightful. We met people from Scotland, Sweden, England and New York. The conversations were quite interesting. The Almondy is quite close to the harbor and within easy walking distance of restaurants and shops. I would recommend this to anyone, at least during the off season. During the summer, it might be somewhat louder with its proximity to the bars and harbor life. Overall, a very excellent choice!
3.4 on October 19, 2013
THIS IS A LOVELY PROPERTY IN A WONDERFUL LOCATION. THE OWNER/HOSTESS IS VERY GRACIOUS AND HELPFUL IN GIVING SUGGESTIONS ABOUT WHAT TO SEE IN NEWPORT. WE HAD SOME GREAT BREAKFAST CONVERSATIONS WITH OTHER GUESTS.

This is an exceptional Bed and Breakfast. The location is absolutely perfect and very convenient to anything that you wish to do in Newport. There is off street parking in the back, and once we parked, we had no need to drive until we left. The property was immaculately clean. Herber and Evelyne are gracious hosts and their hospitality was outstanding. The breakfasts were delicious and there was wine and cheese in the afternoon. This is the second time that we stayed at the Almondy Inn, and we highly recommend it.

Beautiful rooms in a great location in Newport. Be aware that younger children are not allowed - we surprised the innkeepers with our kids. (It says so at the bottom of the "policies and procedures" link but we never read it). We didn't eat breakfast there but the spread looked quite impressive from what we saw.
4.8 on August 27, 2013
We greatly enjoyed our stay. Our hostess was very helpful, and the location is really convenient to waterfront attractions. Just a short drive to the mansions of Newport.
3.2 on August 26, 2013
my husband and I enjoyed our 3 nite stay very much. even though the inn is very close to town it was quiet enough to sleep peacefully. The off street parking was a huge bonus. The owners were very friendly and we enjoyed the chance to chat with them and the other guests every nite along with complimentary wine and cheese.
4.6 on August 25, 2013
Innkeepers and staff, memorable stays!

You honestly can't ask for more when visiting Newport. The location of Almondy was absolutely perfect for us. The owners are unbelievably friendly and warm. The rooms are very nice and very comfortable. I will stay here every time I go to Newport.
4.4 on August 03, 2013
What we expect at a quality B&B is a high bar. Quality service, clean and comfortable accomadations and a welcoming host. Almondy met all of those, and then some. Incredibly convenient location -- a block away from the main wharf and all the shops and a comfortable walk or short drive to the mansions and other sites and sights of beautiful Newport. Our room and bath were a little small, with a window AC but very comfortable. We would definitely return.
5 on August 03, 2013
Our stay at the Almondy Inn was fantastic! We stayed in the Lanai suite. It was perfect. The bed was very comfortable. We had a nice view of the water from our balcony. We looked forward to breakfast in the am it was delicious. We also really liked the wine and cheese in the afternoon. It was a nice way to meet the other guests. We would love to visit Newport and stay at the Almondy again soon.

This is the B&B to stay at! We have been staying here for years. The breakfasts are wonderful and the rooms are lovely. You will not be disappointed. It is only a short walk to the corner and you are at the wharf!

We stayed for a romantic, one night anniversary get away. The innkeeper was helpful but not intrusive. The room was very clean and the bed comfortable. We loved the whirlpool tub. The best part is the location, walk out the door and you are in the heart of Newport. Rooms are pricey, but you are paying for a great location.

Love the European ambiance, superb service, fabulous breakfasts and great locaiton within walking distance of the waterfront and Tennis Hall of Fame.

We stayed here for two nights as part of a three week honeymoon around New England. We both had the best night sleep of our entire trip in this Inn. The room was beautiful with an amazing bed and lovely fixtures in the room. We couldn't say enough about the location, you are just set back off Thames street, so everything can be reached within a few minutes walk. The breakfasts were really nice, a two course affair, very tasty and they set us up for the rest of the day. Ivan was a really nice host, and took great care of us each day. We met the owner, Evelyn on the last day and she was such a nice lady. She made sure everything was to our liking and was extremely courteous and helpful on checkout. Housekeeping were also excellent. We left something in the room after check-out, and then came down and put it under our car wipers, whilst we'd headed back into town to buy a few odds and ends after having checked out. Room Tip: We chose the Sunset room, great bed and lovely fitting and fixtures. Bonus of partial harbor view.
4.8 on June 15, 2013
What a fabulous bed and breakfast, beautifully decorated and finished, in a great location right next to Thames Street and the waterfront. Free Car parking off road meant we were able to wander the area and enjoy all the sights without running up expensive parking charges. The home cooked breakfasts were to die for and a sociable wine and cheese hour in the late afternoon meant a chance to chat to fellow guests. Evelyne was the perfect hostess and we would highly recommend this inn to anyone looking for a boutique hotel experience. Ceri Hill and Graham Screen, Wales UK
4.6 on June 03, 2013
My boyfriend and I stayed overnight at the Almondy, and we wished our stay had been longer. The hospitality was wonderful, and we especially enjoyed the wine and cheese hour in the evening. It allowed us to get to know some other very interesting guests at the Inn. One of the best aspects of this place is the location. You're within walking distance of numerous restaurants, bars, and shops. We didn't even need to drive our car after checking in for the evening. The only very minor complaints we had were that the bed wasn't quite firm enough for our taste, and we would have appreciated a mini-fridge with more beverages than just 2 bottles of water. There was a loud bar playing live music about a block away, but we didn't really notice the sound with the windows shut. The room was clean and beautiful. The jetted bath and bedside fireplace were especially nice. We highly recommend staying here!
4.2 on June 02, 2013
We stayed in the Sunset room, it's on the small side but very comfortable. There were a few peculiarities, like the T.V. is located in the corner to the left which makes it difficult to watch from the four-poster bed as one of the four posts is in the way. Otherwise lovely room, the bed is super comfortable and the bathroom has a great shower. What makes the inn special is Evelyne, the inn keeper, who is friendly and accommodating. Her idea of hosting a wine and cheese get together for guests every day at 5pm is inspired, this sort of attention to detail means the Almondy Inn stands out from your average hotel. Breakfast changes every day and is cooked fresh and served with fruit, tea/coffee & orange juice. What more could you ask for?

We have stayed at many B & B's - the Almondy Inn is by far the best yet. Loved it and can;t wait to return. Nancy and Pat

My wife and I had been planning a trip to the east coast and decided that Newport would be an interesting destination. Rather than the standard hotel we decided to B&B it, and after some research decided on the Almondy. It was a great choice.

The staff were very professional. The rooms were very clean , and the breakfast was excellent. We had a wonderful time.
3.4 on May 22, 2013
My husband and I went for our honeymoon. The owners were away, but the gentleman taking care of the place was super nice and sweet. The location is right there by the waterfront, restuarants and shops. The place was very clean, I was a little disappointed that they didn't have drinks, tea, coffee out all the time for your convenience, all the other B&Bs I visted did this, but the store was right down the street. Also, there is a bar that you can hear their music till 2 in the morning, however, you should expect to hear some noise since your so close to everything. Overall we had a nice time.
4.2 on May 09, 2013
Spent one night at the Almondy Inn. My husband and I were very happy with the location, the cleanliness of the rooms and the breakfast. The Inn is beautifully maintained, Evelyne and Herbert are very friendly and welcoming. When traveling my husband and I will usually only stay in Bed and Breakfast establishments, and we are happy to say we would certainly stay at the Almondy Inn again and we would recommend it highly. Thanks!!
4.6 on May 08, 2013
My girlfriend and I were here for a weekend in April, 2013 and I was very happy with the Almondy Inn. The owners definitely take pride in their Inn and it shows. Rooms were very clean, fresh, and inviting. Breakfast was great both mornings we were there as well. The location couldn't be better - literally steps from Thames street and very easy to get to restaurants, bars, etc. We would definitely recommend/go back.
3.8 on May 05, 2013
We really enjoyed the hospitality provided by the owners, including sharing some life stories over complimentary wine and cheese! The location was perfect for the time of year we went (pre-season, in April), with a very short walk to Thames St. with all of the downtown shopping, food, and bars. We were still able to drive around and see all of the attractions, including beaches and mansions, within a 10 minute drive. The breakfast served was fantastic each morning, and provided a great time to mingle with the other guests. We had a wonderful stay.
4.6 on April 29, 2013
Evelyne was a fantastic hostess. She went above and beyond to make our stay special. It was wonderful to have the wine and cheese hour to meet the other guests. I highly recommend this property. It is close to all the major attractions. We would definitely go back! Hope to see you soon, Evelyne! Cheers!

My boyfriend and I took advantage of the off season rates and spent a night at the Almondy B&B. We stayed in the Blue room. The room was beautifully decorated , the bed was extremely comfortable, and the fireplace added to the romantic atmosphere. My favorite aspect of the room was definitely the 2 person jacuzzi tub. I'm 6'2 and it was so refreshing to have access to a bathtub that was actually long enough for me. We really enjoyed the personal touches of the inn, wine and cheese at night, a warm delicious breakfast in the morning, bathrobes in the rooms. We can't wait to go back!

the place was wonderful, service and food was great, and you can't beat the location, it's very close to all the bars and shops in downtown Newport, but yet on a quiet side street so you can peace and quiet if you want

Beautiful Inn, perfect central location, charming host with a wonderful attention to detail. European charm meets the best American hospitality. Would recommend this place to anyone!
5 on November 15, 2012
My wife and I spent a long weekend in Newport to celebrate our anniversary. Evelyne & Herber are wonderful hosts and clearly love what they are doing. We can't say enough great things about this B&B! The breakfast offerings were far above and beyond anything we've seen in a B&B. The wine & cheese hour was a very nice touch allowing us to meet and chat with the other guests. With only five rooms these events served to bracket the day and really make us feel at home with the other guests in the house.
4.2 on October 24, 2012
Breakfast was particularly enjoyable, as food was delicious and served promptly, and the "communal table" which can be a real negative turned out to be very enjoyable. We made several new friends during our brief stay.

The location is great, right off the harbor. The innkeepers are friendly. The food is fantastic. The rooms are clean and well appointed. We have stayed there twice now and look forward to staying again

My wife and I stayed at the Almondy Inn during the America's Cup World Series in July, 2012. It was our first visit to Newport and we knew little about the town, but I don't think we could have found a more perfect place to stay. The location is fantastic, just steps away from the wharfs and the center of the village. The room was wonderful, the innkeepers charming, and the breakfasts were amazing. We will absolutely be returning to the Almondy Inn the next time we visit Newport. Very highly recommended.
3.4 on September 24, 2012
Stayed at the Almondy Inn for two nights in September. The Inn was very close to Bowens Wharfe, which was excellent for dining options at night , as there were lots of restaurants to choose from which were only a short walk away. The Inn was beautifully appointed. Breakfasts were lovely and we were offered wine and cheese between the hours of 5- 6. Would have been nice to have coffee machines in the bedroom for early morning coffee. Staff and owners very friendly and helpful with tourist information requests. Would stay again.

Almondy Inn has a great location within easy walking distance of the shops and restaurants in Newport, RI. Evelyne is the perfect hostess and it truely becomes your home away from home.

We stayed at the Almondy Inn for our honey moon. The experience was fabulous. The location is great, the rooms are spacious and luxurious, the Evelyne and Herber are phenomenal hosts. The breakfast quickly became the most enjoyable part of our stay (and I am not a breakfast person). Getting to meet and talk with other guests while eating a delicious home made breakfast was a very relaxing and enjoyable experience. We definitely plan on staying at the Almondy Inn again next time we visit Newport.

I stayed at the Almondy Inn for 2 nights in August and loved it. The inn is beautiful and well kept, the owners are so gracious and created a great environment. The daily breakfasts are delicious and the wine happy hour is a nice touch. The location is superb, lots of dining and shopping is just across the street and it's a short drive to the mansions and beaches. Would definitely go back!

Quaint Inn and great location. Clean and comfortable. Home made breakfast and wine and cheese in the evening. Evelyn is a perfect B&B owner.

After many hours of research of various B&B's in the Newport Area, we chose The Almondy Inn. We were not disappointed!!! We are very particular in every regard, and the Almondy Inn met and/or exceeded every expectation we had. It is meticulously clean, both inside and out. The food was abundant and delicious. The room and bathroom were spotless and more than comfortable. The inn was within walking distance to downtown (literally 2 minutes), and saved us a bundle on parking. We arrived early, and The Valkenbergs were wonderfully hospitable. Without a doubt we would come back to this Inn! My husband and I felt is was the best B&B around. The previous reviews were spot on! Can't recommend it enough!

Had a wonderful time at the Almondy Inn. Would highly recommend it. The owners, Evelyne and Herber were very warm and welcoming, made you feel like part of the family. They asked us about any dietary restrictions (vegetarian and lactose intolerant) we may have had and went above and beyond to meet them. They were able to give us many recommendations on the area (restaurants, attractions, etc) and knew the history well. The rooms were lovely and well maintained. The free parking during our stay was key as with most other hotels in the area you have to pay a fee. Overall, it was a great experience and this will definitely turn into a yearly trip.

We loved our stay at Almondy Inn. It was clean and close to all the sights. Our hostess helped us to obtain vouchers for the mansion tours, gave us a map of the city with some "insider tips" for parking and the best beaches. We'd definitely stay here again. Cheryl & John, New Jersey

Great location just a half block from the harbor-front dining. Easy off-street parking. Beautifully refurbished grand old building. Host family was delightful as were the guests.

If you are in Newport this is the place to stay! We just returned from our honeymoon and this place literally brought me to tears! It's gorgeous and clean. Evelyne is lovely and you can not beat the location! We will be back!

Me and my husband stayed at the Almondy Inn on June 8 and June 9 to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary. The location of the Inn was outstanding, just steps away from Thames Street where all the restaurants, shops and Bannister's Wharf is located. We stayed in the Blue Bay room and it was very clean, the bed was extremely comfortable. We also had a jacuzzi in our bathroom, which was very relaxing after a long day of activities. The breakfasts were also very good and if you didn't like something that was being served on that day, Evelyn was happy to make something different. We would highly recommend the Almondy Inn to our family and friends and if we ever have the chance to go to Newport again we know exactly where we will stay.

We spent last weekend at Almondy Inn, and would return in a heartbeat. The Inn was conveniently located near great restaurants and shops. We were within walking distance to everything. The Inn was beautifully decorated, clean, and accommodating. The staff was available to answer questions about the area, and gave great tips about the sites. Our mansion tour voucher was giving to us upon arrival. Breakfast was served on time both days, and was delicious. Our room faced the wharfs, and was warm and inviting. We could not have asked for a better place to stay while in Newport. I would recommend the Almondy Inn to anyone planning a visit to the area!

Just spend a wonderful weekend at the Almondy Inn. Hosts are gracious, rooms are well appointed and clean, food was creative and delicious....it is the perfect place for a romantic weekend getaway. Location was ideal as well -- just a short walk into town. This B&B comes with my highest recommendation!
4.2 on September 22, 2011
My husband and I have been to many B&Bs and truly enjoyed this experience. The owners were very open and friendly and we enjoyed our conversations with them. The room was beautiful and immaculate, the breakfasts left us with no room for lunch and the location can't be beat! We'll definitely be booking with them again when staying in Newport!
5 on September 19, 2011
The welcome was wonderful. Our rooms were lovely, nicely appointed and very clean. Such friendly and experienced proprietors. Our wine and cheese in the evening was fun, and breakfast was fantastic....baked goods, eggs and bacon and beautiful fruit. The coffee was delicious.

Outstanding B&B, very close to everything in the historic Newport area. We've been coming here for the past 5 years and would not consider anywhere else.

We have stayed at The Almondy many times. We always enjoy the company of fellow guests. Evelyne will do anything to make your stay enjoyable and relaxing. Her breakfasts are exquisite. Afternoon wine and cheese in the living room is a wonderful way to meet others staying at the inn. The Inn is beautifully decorated with fresh flowers adding a touch of elegance in all the right places. We always feel warm and welcome at The Almondy.

We stayed 2 nights in Plantation room on September 8th 2011, hosts were terrific and bed was very clean and comfortable,breakfasts were tasty.

As soon as we walked in to the Almondy Inn you felt right at home. We stayed in the Blue Room and it was lovely. The cleaniness and updated bathroom was wonderful! The location is just a minute walk down to the Harbor for great dining and shopping. Will be back next year!

Evelyn and Herber are the ultimate hosts; we had a great night sleep each evening and woke to a fabulouse breakfast! They have restored the house beautifully and tastefully. Almondy Inn is literally steps from Bannisters Wharf, the Newport Yacht Club marina and directly behind 3 nightclubs; but despite the close proximity to just about everything we didn't hear any noise at all once we closed our window. A very peaceful sleep in the middle of all the action. We will be back!!

Went for a couple of nights to see Newport and wanted to stay at a B&B. We were both very happy with our choice. Evelyn (innkeeper) was very gracious, more then helpful with dinner suggestions, etc. The Inn had off-street parking which was great considering how crowded it is in the historical area (and expensive to pay for a lot). Gourmet breakfast was great, and we loved the wine & cheese hour in the evening. We have already recommended to friends!

The Almondy was close to everything and the innkeepers were lovely. Highly recommend!
4.6 on August 03, 2011
We had a comfortable, fantastic stay. Only way it could have been better is if they asked up front what we wanted to eat! They provided some fancy, delicious food, but would have been nice to know what to expect for breakfast.

We have visited Newport in the last three years and stayed at a hotel and two B&B's. The Almondy is by far our best experience! It is a beautifully restored inn. We stayed in the Blue Bay Room. It was comfortable and exceptionally clean. The jacuzzi tub was a treat! It is evident that Evelyne and Herber take great pride in their establishment and welcome each and every guest as family. The inn is impeccable both inside and out. Ample parking is available. Evelyne knows the area very well and offers great suggestions for restaurant dining and things to do. Breakfast at the inn is superb! She is very accommodating to food allergies and can offer vegetarian options as well. We enjoyed chatting with guests during our stay at breakfast and at the end of the day at the wine and cheese hour. The inn is steps away from all the activities on the wharf area but is also very quiet and relaxing. We had a great experience and will certainly return!

One of the better B&B's my wife and I have stayed in.

My parents have been coming here for a few years, and this time my husband and I took a trip with them. Upon entering the Almondy Inn, my expectations were substantially exceeded. From the hospitable welcome at the front door, to the immaculate, spacious rooms, service, EXQUISITE breakfasts, and other "homey" touches, my husband and I had only wished we started staying here sooner! We were treated like relatives of the innkeepers, and Evelyne assisted us with our daily itineraries, never once leaving us disappointed. Our 4-night, 5-day stay was filled to the brim with activities and delicious meals at the area's superb restaurants. This establishment is run with the utmost professionalism, and the location is spot-on. With just a short walk down to the corner, Bannister's Wharf awaits you. After long afternoons, you can expect "wine and cheese hour" in the parlor and a lovely chat with Evelyne. After dinner, it was a pleasure returning to our charming rooms, but not without relaxing first, on the front porch, enjoying an ice-cream cone from the corner chocolate/ice-cream shop. We will certainly be returning to the Almondy Inn, just like some of the other repeat-guests that we met while staying there. If there is anything you ever need throughtout your stay, Evelyne and her husband Herber are always around to assist you with a smile. We were so sorry to leave!
5 on July 17, 2011
After having stayed at The Almondy Inn several times, I must say it never disappoints. The rooms are immaculate and Evelyne's breakfasts are superb. We are treated like very dear friends as opposed to guests. We feel very at home there. Also, it is very convenient to the wharf. A very short walk. The only place we will stay in Newport is The Almondy Inn!
5 on July 14, 2011
You could not ask for better accomodations even at the Ritz. Almondy is by far the best bed & breakfast we have ever stayed at. The location is perfect to downtown Newport, walk to everything. Can't say enough about the room, the view, quiet, the cleanliness, like new condition, and victorian charm, all with a European flare. Now, breakfast was cooked to order no buffet and by candle light at the dining room table. That's over the top. Harold & Marilyn Taylor, Plymouth MA.

We received a gift card for Bed and Breakfast.com and chose Newport as we have never been there. I researched every inn using this site and Trip Advisor and my husband and I agreed that the Almondy was perfect. The location is the best; you are a few short blocks from the wharves, the historic district and all the action, shopping and restaurants on Thames St. Evelyn is gracious and helpful and it is easy to see that she loves what she does. Her breakfasts are absolutely delicious and served elegantly. We enjoyed fresh fruits, homemade muffins and croissants, eggs florentine, etc. She serves up wine, cheese and conversation at 5pm which is a great way to meet other people or just get ideas from Evelyn. She is extremely knowledgeable about all things Newport and with so many choices it helps to narrow things down. We stayed in the Blue Bay room for two nights. The room is immaculate as is the large bathroom, which has a lovely basket of luxury toiletries. The bed was the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in! The guest areas of the house are just as well kept, gracious yet inviting. During our travels we did see many of the other B and B's listed and we were so glad we chose the Almondy Inn. We are already planning our return trip!

My friend and I had a wonderful stay for 1 night at the Almondy Inn. Evelyne, the innkeeper, is a gracious host and serves a delicious breakfast. She provdided the perfect balance between Newport guide and host while maintaining our privacy. Within walking distance to the main harbor, shops and restaurants. Having parking available as well was a huge convenience. We would definitely consider staying here again with our repective partners.

We had a near-perfect stay at the Almondy Inn. We stayed in the Plantation Room, which was very comfortable, if a bit overwhelmed by a large, very comfortable bed. The location is as good as it gets. Our hosts were very friendly, very helpful, and very accommodating (pun intended). Breakfast was delicious. When I declined a suggested meal, a fine alternative was cheerfully supplied. If we're ever in the area, we would certainly try to stay here again!

Evelyne & Herber Valkenberg are wonderful hosts. They are eager to please and are gracious and welcoming. Their B&B is located about two blocks away from shopping, restaurants and the waterfront. They're also only a 5 - 6 minute drive to the famous Cliff Walk. They offer offstreet parking, a quiet location, a very tasty breakfast, a nice wine and cheese hour where you can chat with them as well as their guests, and lovely amenities. If you're planning a stay in Newport you should definitely consider The Almondy Inn.

Joe and I spent two nights at the Almondy Inn in Newport during the "heat wave" (last week of August, 2010). We had the Burgundy Suite, which was fabulous - superb 4-poster bed, tons of space, and great A/C. Evelynne, the owner, is an extremely gracious, multi-lingual, cultured woman - a delightful hostess, who makes you feel completely at home. The two women who work at the Inn are lovely, charming and helpful. The full breakfast is excellent - wine and cheese in the afternoon a perfect break in a busy sight-seeing day, and an opportunity to meet and talk with other guests (when we were there they ranged from 2 couples from Connecticut, to a lovely couple from Germany who were driving through New England). The Inn is 1/2 block up Pelham Street from Bannister's Wharf - close enough to walk to restaurants - far enough to feel you are in another, quieter, more relaxed world. We will definitely stay there again if we should return to Newport, which is very likely since we didn't get a chance to see all the Mansions, etc.

5/9/09--This was the first time my husband and I stayed in a B&B. Our experience at The Almondy Inn was nothing short of spectacular. The inn is conveniently located to wharves for great shopping and good eating. Our room had a very comfortable bed. Overall, the inn is very clean and elegant. Plus, parking is free in their driveway! Evelyn is a wonderful hostess and goes out of her way to make you feel at ease! We would definitely return again.
