My first experience with a B&B could not have been placed in better hands. The room was cozy and clean, and the overall facilities were well kept reflecting upon the historic age of the structure. Attention to details and upkeep are routine and punctual. Felt like being part of one big family. The location in downtown, historic Newport was very... More

Perfect location, walk to anywhere in town. Clean room, great value for price. Very pretty historical home. Denise was so helpful with tips about the neighborhood. Woke up each morning to the smell of breakfast cooking.... she made the best eggs:) Like staying at a friend's house.

If you have the chance to stay here when you come to Newport, you should. It's a real gem of a place. The B&B consists of two houses dating back to the late 19th century, and furnished with a range of fabulous period pieces. We stayed in the ground floor at No 20, and our room is accessed via a...

I absolutely loved Fair Street Guest House. Having never been to a Bed and Breakfast before, I was a little worried about the accommodations, privacy, and comfort. I was pleasantly surprised with how amazing it was and cannot believe I haven't come here sooner! I was greeted warmly by Denise and showed to our room- very private and could not... More

On our first visit to Newport we decided to try a B&B rather than a hotel because, unless we chose a very, very expensive place, most of the hotel reviews were mixed at best. Fair Street Guesthouse was reasonably-priced with good reviews, and the location could hardly have been better. It's walking distance to the Newport wharf area and restaurants... More

Breakfast was good. The room and the bathroom were simple but fonctional. The location at Fair St. is outstanding - most highlights of the... More

We have stayed at the Fair Street Guest House the last two summers and I have to say we thoroughly enjoyed our time there. The location is outstanding, you are just steps away from the main shopping area and all the great restaurants. The guest house is very charming and homey with an outside garden area to sit and relax... More

We decided to take a last-minute trip to Newport, and were extremely happy with our choice of the Fair St Guest House. Denise was extremely helpful, and had great suggestions for places to see and places to eat. Denise's breakfasts were delicious, and the porch was a wonderful place to have it. The room was clean, comfortable and tastefully decorated.... More
