I had a very great experience at this lovely warm and welcoming hotel... It looks like a bed and breakfast manor... The staff was wonderful, very helpful and welcoming... Very safe and quiet area... Not many parking spaces but feel very secure... Very nice small room, very comfy bed, fridge, microwave, flat screen tv and good wifi Internet... Only one... More

This is a hotel, not a B & B, and it is right on the border of Newport. it is located within 5 minutes of everything (Mansions, Thames, etc). The breakfast is so so nothing special: bagels, oatmeal, hard boiled eggs, coffee, tea, and juices. the rooms are roomy and clean. I would definetly stay here again. Friendly staff. The... More

Was moved here from a beachside hotel just before the superstorm which hit the East Coast. I guess if you like chintz and English style decor then this is your place. The staff we very helpful indeed an battled to keep the everything going through the storm and subsequent power failures. The rooms are basic and functional and have a... More

I stayed here one night while stopping in Newport. Everything was very easy, check in, check out and especially getting help and sightseeing tips. The room was a little cold but the bed was cozy so that was not that big of a deal. The complimentary breakfast was good. It does not offer a huge variety but had everything I... More

I am no stranger to this cozy property. Over the years while my daughter attended a local boarding school for her high school years, I became wonderfully acquainted with this bit of nostalgia nestled amidst tranquil corners but near enough to so much. My daughter brought home a college friend during her brief Thanksgiving recess and I decided to get... More

Had a very enjoyable stay. Staff did their best to make us comfortable, this winter they will be doing some renovation in one wing. Built in the 1800's a treat to stay there. Full breakfast choice, unless some travelers ate 5 egg croissants, but plenty of choice. Would recommend it to anyone.

I have mixed feelings over this property... My wife and I stayed here this first weekend of October 2012; we were in room 8 on the first floor. Property Pros: It is very close to downtown Newport; allowing quick access to the Ocean Drive and The Cliff Walk. There is ample parking for guests. The area it is located in... More

At first sight this looked a good choice, attractive exterior lots of parking and just a couple of miles from newport itself. On entering the Hotel the lobby looked nice and quite elegant. Thats about the end of the good news. The male receptionist was not very friendly and was wearing a dirty shirt- not a good impression. when we... More

Newport Rhode Island's key attractions include their fabulous mansions, landmarks of a bygone era. Two nights' hotel stay proved sufficient to take in the city's sights this summer, including dining seaside and watching sailboats cruise on what seemed an endless harbor. Selecting a hotel that doesn't charge Rockefeller rates takes some detective work but here's a recommendation... The Carriage House... More

Beautiful old building with nice and comfortable rooms and large sitting area with a nice continental breakfast. Located close enough to Newport,RI to be convenient without the high Newport prices. Stayed four nights which were peaceful and quiet. The only negative was one of the men at the front desk who was not at all friendly.
