We stayed a few nights for the long july 4 weekend. It is in a small little town, that really knows how to do july 4. The bed & breakfast is central to everything & we walked everywhere. Our room was downstairs near the front door, but noise was not an issue at all. Even during july 4 am when... More

This cozy B&B has many positives. Owners Diane and Warren are warm and helpful; the breakfasts are truly exceptional; the Inn is interestingly decorated; the upstairs parlor is super comfortable; and the location is convenient to central Bristol. Drawbacks: our upstairs room was quiet, but small for two; downstairs rooms are bigger, but are either right next to the front... More

Pros: Excellent breakfast; kind, warm and well-meaning hosts who try to be very accommodating to guests; location near downtown, comfortable bed. Cons: Upstairs Garden Rm. facing rear was very cramped for 2 people; it was painted a horrible bright hospital green; nice garden was unappealing with ladders, paint and drilling in process; very loud window A/C noise requires earplugs; garden...

Charming Inn in a charming setting. Lovely breakfast and breakfast conversation. Our hosts were extremely warm and welcoming and were a fountain of information about the local history. We've booked our stay for parent's weekend in the fall and I'm sure we will have many more visits at the William's Grant Inn.

Diane and Warren are the most welcoming owner/innkeepers. My stay was a three night spur of the moment decision and I was accommodated quickly and with ease. Breakfasts are wonderful, and a true community is felt around the table. My dietary needs were met as well. It was my first visit to Bristol and both were so helpful with the... More

William's Grant Inn is conveniently located in Bristol. Innkeepers Diane and Warren are well informed about the area and gave us excellent recommendations for restaurants in Bristol. Superb breakfasts every morning, served family style. Our room was comfortable and I loved the handmade soap in the bathroom. The upstairs sitting room was a lovely spot to sit in the late... More

Inn keepers Diane and Warren own and manage the c1808 Colonial guest house with a welcoming and personal style. They provided excellent ideas on things to do, see and where to eat in the brief time we had in Bristol and Newport. The house has remained true to its original anatomy with windows, doors, floors and stairs showing layers of... More

We stayed a long weekend in Dec. and had a great time in Bristol and Newport. John, the inn manager was awesome. Very friendly and helpful with restaurants (food was awesome in Bristol.) and other things to do and see! A very nice find....especially off season.

Traditional New England Charm and Southern hospitality rolled into one establishment. William’s Grant Inn in delightful Bristol is steeped in historical charm, complete with owner’s linage dating back to the Mayflower’s landing in Plymouth. During the snow season proprietors Warren and his wife visit family down-under in New Zealand for several months, leaving the Inn in the highly capable hands... More

Bristol is a charming town with a wonderful bike path, so we decided to stay overnight. This "inn" in the center of town is a convenient location but it is barely a B&B let alone an inn. There are only 5 guest rooms crammed into this small house. The only common area is a small parlor which is inadequate for... More
