My husband and I spent another trip to Newport here in this quaint and charming inn that is located right in the heart of Newport. The staff is always welcoming and informative. We stayed in Room 19 which is lovely and has a semi-private deck that we especially enjoy with a view of the harbor and Newport Bridge. There is... More

What a delight this charming B&B is in the heart of Newport and Thames Street. Thank you for your location, your convenient parking lot- and your elevator for weary late afternoon middle aged travelers! Angela was warm and welcoming without being intrusive. The location can't be beat and the breakfast was fresh and more adorable than plentiful but just enough!... More

My husband and I returned to the Admiral Fitzroy in April to celebrate his birthday, and we were even more impressed with the Inn! Angela and the staff could not have been more helpful or accommodating. This time we stayed in room 9, which was absolutely lovely! The elevator was particularly helpful taking our bags to the second floor. The... More

A lovely inn in a great part of town on Thames street. I believe inns are the way to go in beach towns. They are more charming and have a more relaxed atmosphere than bigger hotels--which is great when you come up with a lot of questions about the area. The Admiral Fitzroy is no exception. Danielle was fantastic when... More

Location is perfect, rooms where larger than I expected, service was friendly. Like MOST locations in Newport they will require a 2 night stay during the weekend BUT well worth calling to ask, they will often be able to accommodate the one night stay like they did for us. So Thank you :-) oh ps dont forget to get your... More

I went to the Admiral Fitzroy inn with my fiance in late March of 2014 as part of a post-engagement vacation. I wanted to show her the mansions along the shore. I picked the Admiral Fitzroy Inn because of its quaint rooms and its great location - and it was a good pick! The inn was charming and well-kept. The... More

I've stayed in Newport many times, and always walked by the Admiral Fitzroy promising myself one day I would stay there, finally did it and I am kicking myself for not doing it sooner. The location is great, right in the heart of downtown Newport, everything is in walking distance. We stayed on the third floor, room 14, the room... More

Beautiful Inn, located on Thames so your in the heart of stores and restaurants. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Our room#5 was very comfortable and clean. Plenty of off street parking. Being an old historical building the walls are thin but I too am a light sleeper so don't let this deter you. Next time I'll bring earplugs. Full... More

Debra, Thanks so much for your review. We're glad you enjoyed Room 5 and our signature continental breakfast. Our hope is that guests leave breakfast happy and full which is why we strive to bake a variety of fresh sweets along with healthier choices like fresh fruit, yogurt, boiled eggs, granola, and oatmeal. We're looking forward to seeing you again... More
