15 years ago, Debbie and I visited the William's Grant Inn. Diane and Warren were just starting their adventure as Inn Keepers. Years had passed but we were drawn back to redo the East Bay Bike Trail. As luck would have it, Diane had a room to match our dates for re-visiting the area. We found the Inn, and Diane... More

Lovely and cosy B & B. We were very well looked after by the hosts, thank you. This was a great place to start our 2,500 mile road trip. The hosts were extremely helpful with information about the area and places to visit, they even arranged for another B & B in the area when we wanted to stay another... More

We stayed at the William's Grant for a three-day kayaking outing with another couple and the location was perfect for access to Narragansett Bay. The Inn is in a historic register home built in 1808 - the floor boards are amazing. Hosts Warren and Diane are lovely people with much information to share about the area. The breakfasts are really... More

This was a great area for us. A quiet neighborhood, close to family we were visiting, and close to downtown Bristol. The B&B itself was comfortable, and relatively quiet, even though the other rooms are fairly close to one another. A good place for quieter couples (like us). The owners were very personable and helpful - always willing to offer... More

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
