My wife and I stayed in the Hydrangea Suite in the roof of the Inn. The room is very large but also rather unusual. There is a two person tub in the main room and the bathroom sink is also in the room, not the bathroom. The room is comfortable but very dark. It cold use more lamps. The Inn... More

Very comfortable, beautiful bed. The steam shower was also really nice .We loved the little sitting area outside our room... More

We stayed in the Hydrangea suite on top floor which had sloped ceilings I assume because it was the attic at one time. Only complaint was this room was a little dark - need better lighting by mirror/sinks- very minor complaint though because the inn is cozy, clean and well run. Breakfasts were delicious and plentiful. Location perfect. All good... More

My husband and I stayed at this B & B for the first time and enjoyed it tremendously. The atmosphere is nice and laid back and even though it is within walking distance to everything the location is quiet and relaxing. Grant and Dennis as well as Robert and Lisa were all very helpful and gracious. We have been to... More

They secured dining reservations that we were not able to get on our own. The location of this B&B is within walking distance to the wharves and Thames St. which are lined... More

Our first time in Newport and the Hydrangea House inn made it very special for all the right reasons, the room was individually styled and scrupulously clean and was always that way, the wine and cheese on our arrival was lovely and the gourmet breakfast were different each day and equally delicious, we were warmly welcomed by Dennis, Grant, Lisa...

Quiet, comfortable rooms, really a terrific time,. We spent 2 nights enjoying a slice of Newport, and we felt very well cared for. The staff and owners do a fantastic job, the breakfasts were outstanding and the coffee (critical for me, it's a food group) was as good as it gets. One morning was Krispy Kreme French Toast, creative and... More

The gourmet breakfast was delicious each day. WE felt like we were at home especially with Grant and Dennis. Robert is a wonderful person, full of tons of information on where top go, what to do, and just about anything else you may need, very accommodating.
