Absolutely horrible experience here. We had a wedding in Newport this past weekend and knew it would be busy so booked a room here in early September 2014. We received a confirmation email through Priceline when we booked it, and a reminder email July 20, 2015. There was NOTHING in the email or on the website that said when you... More

If I could give negative stars for Fair Street Guest House and their owner/manager Denise I would. I booked a Victorian king bed room way back on the 5th of September of last year. Fast forward 10 months. My girlfriend and I headed down to Newport RI and stopped at a winery on the way down. Before leaving the winery... More

If I could give half stars, I'd rate this place 3.5 stars. GOOD: 1 star for the quaint and cute B&B inn that has free parking. 1 star for a hospitable host who makes good breakfasts. 1 star for not requiring 3 night minimums Half a star for the complimentary "upgrade" to a king room with kitchenette. MEH: Half a... More

We love the Fair Street Guest Houses! This was our fourth visit and had a wonderful stay. The owners are great, beautiful houses, delicious breakfasts and nice location. It's the only place we will stay in Newport! 😃

We recently booked two rooms at FSGH. When we arrived at the property, the proprietor, Denise, asked if we were three people and showed us to a room in a third building on her property (not number 20 or 28 that are shown in the descriptions, but number 10) where we were given a "suite" with a kitchenette. The second... More

Stayed here 4 nights in June and couldn't have been happier. This was our first bed and breakfast. Delicious breakfast every morning from Denise the host. Room was nothing large but definitely enough for staying in a place like Newport. The location cannot be beat imo. Close to all the shops and eats and sights. The price is awesome for... More

This was our first visit to Newport and we were looking for moderately priced centrally located accommodations. We weren't disappointed. Comfortable, clean place to stay with "made to order" breakfast. Within walking distance of so many great things to do and see. Denise made you feel at home and had helpful information about Newport. Would definitely return to this B&B.

Lovely B+B with friendly owners. Very comfortable room in a lovely home. Good location for walking up to the cliffwalk and into town. Breakfast was absolutely delicious! Would recommend as a place to stay in Newport.

Stayed here two nights in August. Room was large. Checked in easily. Breakfast was good. Hubby and son ordered eggs one morning and they were too runny for their taste, but mine breakfast was delicious. I didn't have eggs. Location is fantastic. Just a few steps to the main waterfront area where all the stores, boats, and restaurants are located.... More
