I can't even begin to explain how enjoyable our stay was at the Admiral Fitzroy in Newport. My boyfriend and I stayed for a weekend and felt as if we were right at home. Our room was cozy, clean, and comfortable. The staff was incredibly accommodating and kind. Plus, the fresh cookies in the afternoon was a warm and welcoming... More

We were first time visitors to Newport, R.I. and were so delighted with everything the trip had to offer. Our hotel was very clean, comfortable with a great location! The staff were all so incredibly friendly and helpful. The breakfast room was lovely with a lovely selection of great breakfast items. The hotel was not fancy, but offered exactly what... More

This is the second time we stayed at the Admiral Fitzroy Inn with sets of grandchildren. The Inn is modest, but clean, centrally located in the harbor, well equipped and kid friendly. Free on-site parking and a generous breakfast are two other perks.

After a recent 2-night stay, I can only reiterate what my fellow visitors to the Admiral Fitzroy have been saying - this is a very nice Inn. The location is perfect - you never have to use your car to walk down by the harbor; the staff is attentive, helpful and courteous; the accommodations are clean and well-maintained; and the... More

On the advice of my son and daughter-in-law, my husband I stayed here for 2 nights. I really can't say anything more than some of the other reviewers. The place was lovely, and in a great location. Staff were pleasant and accomodating. Breakfast was similar to a continental but better and more variety, just enough to start the day. The... More

This is a charming B&B and located so well on a street in Newport with everything in walking distance. The room was clean, pretty and comfortable. The breakfast was good and we enjoyed the afternoon homemade cookies. The staff was friendly and helpful when we asked questions. We would definitely stay there again if in Newport!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Admiral Fitzroy Inn! This inn is in a great location, right on Thames Street close to nice restaurants and the waterfront. Our room on the second floor faced the back and was nice and quiet and spacious. The room and bathroom were clean and inviting. The staff at the front desk and in... More

My wife and I stayed at the Admiral Fitzroy for our first anniversary in June of 2014. From check in to check out, this place is top-notch! Just the right mix of "being home" and "right in the middle of downtown", pretty much every major attraction/restaurant/bar/experience is within walking distance! If we got tired, walk back and nap. If we... More

This bed and breakfast was perfectly located to be able to walk to shops and restaurants. The front desk staff was very helpful with restaurant suggestions. The room was big and had a refrigerator and coffee service. Breakfast was good, just enough to get the day started.
