Spent one night here, as location was very convenient (walking distance) to Brown. I really enjoyed it. It might not be the fanciest B&B I've ever seen, but it is definitely one of the most welcoming, so that's why I am rating it four bubbles--three for accommodation (hallways could use bit of a refresh), five for staff & welcoming atmosphere....

On the New England college tour circuit. The rooms wre beautiful, clean, firm matresses, wonderful shower pressure. The staff was very kind and helpful. Breakfasts were amazing as were the freshly baked cookies always available. Kudos for making our starting point on this trip such a welcoming event.

Stayed just one night packing up my recently graduated daughter from Brown. Very convenient location. Room was comfortable but a bit shabby. Breakfast was good, service too. Not the most fancy or elegant, but good address for a visit to Brown or RISD. Off street parking a plus.

After hitting hotel after hotel on the family road trip from CT to ME (and everywhere in between) it was a pleasant surprise to find something different. Felt like a stop at home! With breakfast and great coffee! Loved waking to the smell of bacon! Also the host went out of his way to make a pot of coffee for... More

My friend and I went to Providence for a girl's weekend. We loved the Old Court and would stay here again in a heartbeat. The room was spacious with two very comfortable twin beds, the bathroom was a good size, with the usual amenities. The b&b is in a perfect location and in walking distance of everything we wanted to... More

Thank you for your thoughtful review of the old court.I must apologize for the tardy response. Our cook-Paddy-tries very hard to prepare a wonderful breakfast each morning and many guests would agree that the results are excellent. I hope you have another chance to visit it Providence and it would be our pleasure to accommodate you again. Best, Max More

I found the Old Court B&B on Tripadvisor and I'm so glad I did. My daughter was visiting Brown, and the Old Court is within walking distance. The room was quaint and quiet; the staff incredibly professional and service oriented; the breakfast of blueberry pancakes was delicious (even the coffee was good ... and I'm pretty picky). We were able... More

I would like to live here. It does feel like someone's grandmother's house, all the old wallpaper, the antique furniture a little weathered, so comfortable and clean. It's convenient to Brown and downtown, there are always cookies when you come in, and Max is an amazingly friendly and yet not overbearing host. The breakfasts are fine and cooked to order.... More

My husband and I stayed here for his birthday for a special weekend getaway. We both like B&B's however we would not stay here again… We were both delighted by the location, situated in the College Hill neighborhood. Walkability to downtown and restaurants was perfect. Having free, off-street parking was a big plus making driving in for a long weekend... More

A near-perfect antique B&B without antique schmaltz, run by the unpretentious host Max. Bright breakfast room, homemade granola to power your walk up the hilly mega-historic streets surrounding the place. Max is like a plainspoken dad--"Ya want some eggs? How about some pancakes? We can do that!" Value must take into account free bkfsts, wi-fi, and parking, not to mention... More

A little dated, and the bathroom could have used a table for toiletries...but all the essentials were here. Welcoming staff and host, comfortable bed, quiet, for a great night's sleep, and super convenient to the great RISD museum, Brown campus... We will definitely come again.
