From the moment we stepped into the lobby we knew we made the right choice for our first trip to Rhode Island. Dennis was super friendly and assisted us in planning our few days there including recommending restaurants to coffee shops to the best place to view a sunset! The room was stunning and the word quaint doesn't quite capture... More

Hydrangea House is a great place to stay in Newport for three reasons: 1) the location- which is convenient to both the harbor and the Bellevue Mansions; 2) the rooms- which are clean and comfortable (there is pretty little garden out back bursting with Hydrangeas) and 3) the food- which is a little bit decadent. If you are on a... More

We attended the Newport Jazz Festival and spent 3 nights here. If our days had not been so busy, I know we would have enjoyed spending more time at the Inn. Our room, Carrie in Paris, was lovely, obviously decorated with care and tastefulness. The bed was very comfortable. There were 2 easy chairs, a desk and chair, a fireplace,... More

Major brownie points for my husband for finding this place all on his own! We parked in the back and were welcomed by the most beautiful and fragrant hydrangea's I've ever experienced! The property is well groomed and taken care of. We entered the house from the front entrance and were warmly welcomed by the owners, Dennis and Grant, and... More

The inn keepers serve most wonderful breakfasts, afternoon treats and bed time cookies! The rooms are lovely and the location is walkable to many points of interest. We enjoyed the comfortable back porches. I would love to go back for the breakfasts alone.

Thank you so very much Virginia ,for this review. We strive to cook and bake most everything we serve from scratch ( except the wine! ) for breakfast and afternoon and evening turn down refreshments. We are so pleased that you enjoyed the food, our location and the quiet peacefulness of the back porch. Please come back when you can! More

Hosts Grant and Dennis have created a perfect inn: luxurious bed with three sheets and a duvet; bathroom with jacuzzi and a glass-enclosed shower or steam bath, offering plenty of horizontal surfaces for your stuff and the Inn's classy soap and shampoo; comfortable antiques; everything clean and fresh; very friendly but never intrusive service; exquisite breakfasts, always tasty, yet always...

The Hydrangea House Inn is centrally located at the end of spectacular Bellevue Avenue in Newport, Rhode Island. It's easy walking distance to museums and some interesting high end shops. The Inn is tastefully decorated with well cared for antiques and very comfortable. Our room, the Oak Room, was large and beautifully appointed, quiet and clean with fresh flowers and... More

great breakfast and stay and room was beautiful. We stayed in a room on the first floor and it had convenient breakfast area and parking. The price is very reasonable for the Newport area and was located in convenient area of town to walk to most areas.

A small Inn in a perfect location. The nightlife and restaurants on the waterfront are easily accessible. Mansions are walkable, but we rode our bikes. Room we stayed in was very posh with dark red and brown furnishings. It had a Jacuzzi tub for two and a shower for two as well. Breakfasts were delicious, though served rather late for... More

First time at a B&B. My husband and I celebrated our 15 year wedding anniversary. Stayed in the Garden Room and felt like we had our own secluded area. Staff was friendly and responsive.
