5th star would have been given had we been able to open either of our 2 windows and had bottled water placed in the room on day 2 like it was upon arrival. Lovely, friendly staff especially our English cook! Lovely breakfast with live guitar played in the background. Close to the Cliff Walk but besides that car needed to... More

My husband and I spent a quiet evening at the Admiral Sims after a long day at Newport Jazz. Our room (Newport) was very clean and comfortable and the king size bed was full of comfy pillows. We had a peaceful night's sleep and awoke to the aromas of breakfast being prepared downstairs. The dining room table was set and... More

Have been to many B&B's in Newport since we always like to try something new, but this one we will definitely go back to. We had the Admiral Sims suite, which is on the top floor and huge. Owner Cindy was super nice. Breakfast was excellent. Location is great - not far from downtown, mansions & 1st Beach. Yes, you... More

My boyfriend and I went to Newport for the Folk Festival. When looking for somewhere to stay, we found bed and breakfasts were much more reasonable than hotels. We booked Admiral Sims due to the more modern design, price, parking and location. It's only about a 15-20 minute walk to Downtown Newport and a 10-15 minute walk to the infamous... More

If I could make the Admiral Sims' House in Newport, RI my home away from home, I certainly would! We were looking for a B&B in Newport that wasn't in the middle of the hustle and bustle. We had 24 hours to not be "mommy and daddy" and we wanted a place that was quiet and off the beaten path.... More

Our second time staying here and we found it lovely... away from the hustle and bustle of downtown Newport. Clean and with very comfy beds. Owners are very friendly. No breakfast was available on premises due to remodeling project but we were just a short walk away from the sister inn. Breakfast was prepared to order and very good, with... More

We were two couples that spent one night on the night of October 24th, 2013. We had the Compass Room and the Newport Suite. Both rooms were huge, high ceilings, cable tv, wifi, and extremely comfortable king size beds. Our breakfast was excellent - not too big nor too small. Our hosts were friendly, helpful with restaurant suggestions, and easy... More

We originally booked our stay for the Beech Tree Inn, and the day before we recieved a call letting us know that there had been a mistake and that our room was double booked. The owners offered us a room at their sister b&b down the street- the admaral sim's house. I was a bit nervous because there weren't many... More

September, 1, 2007 Reviewer: travelfox, NY For charm, comfort, cleanliness, convenience, and a reasonable price, The White House is the place to stay. My husband and I wanted to get away for a few days to relax. We chose Newport because it's a wonderful city with lots of culture, pleasant beaches, and good restaurants. Years ago, we stayed at the... More
