Great location, that's for sure and pet friendly, but it goes downhill from there. Advertised as a 2 bedroom, but when you have to walk through 1 to get to the other, well certainly not 2 private bed rooms. A funky oder. Paint pealing. Water leak marks. Rustic at best furniture. Baseboard heaters not all working, bent facias, missing nobs.... More

Perfectly situated near shops and restaurants and right on the water. The rooms definitely needed some love (new carpeting, paint and furniture) but it was adequate. The staff was friendly and helpful. Parking was very limited. I would not stay there again. I would pick another place close by that is more modern. If I stayed there in peak season... More

My husband and I stayed at the Banniser Wharf guest house in October, 2012 for one night. We LOVED it here. The room was perfect. We had two (comfortable) beds, with great pillows, a little fridge, microwave, coffee maker, everything you could need, nice clean bathroom. The location is AWESOME, looking right out onto the water and pier. Couldn't have... More

If your looking for a quaint place to stay then look no further. Bannister's Warf is a rooming house built right on the dock. You get up every morning and have a fabulous view of the water and the million dollar yachts. The room is small but clean. The bed comfortable. The staff was extremely helpful and accommodating. They have... More

On the Marina, next to all the restaurants, shops, fun, art galaries - the place is alive till 1:30 AM and most of the fun is walking around! They have parking right next to the rooms - really great. Stayed here for a night during the 4th of July holidays, this place is an experience. Just 4-6 rooms // clean,... More

The 5 star rating is for the location alone, amazing, right in the centre of everything Newport has to offer. As two couples we stayed in suite 3, half way down the wharf, with two very clean, double bedrooms and a small living space/kitchenette. Nothing too fancy but comfy beds and a good shower, all you need. Only warning -... More

We stayed in a room overlooking the sea, luxury yachts less than 50 yards from our door, a sun deck where we could sit, read and people watch until the sun went down. Excellent cafes, bars and restaurants with character by the shed-load only a stones throw away, shopping within easy walking distance, car parking, comfy beds and a light... More

We recently stayed at Bannister's and found it to be what we expected. The location is great-in the midst of Newport Harbor so it is an easy walk to shopping and dining. The room was spotlessly clean and the entire staff was friendly and accommodating. Pet friendly and a great cafe downstairs for coffee and goodies too. A few things... More

This place has so much potential. A paint job, new windows, updated furniture and it really wouldn’t be that bad. Look, I loved Newport. It was my visit and I read the reviews about this place, so I knew what I was getting into. That being said, I stayed in Room S1. You have a view looking back along the... More
