I was in Newport for work and literally stumbled upon this gem while searching on-line for a place to stay. The Attwater is a beautifully maintained boutique B&B, in stark contrast to the somewhat more staid & traditional B&Bs and other hotels in Newport. I stayed in a King Junior Suite, in the Urban Beach House (located directly next to... More

Stayed for weekend to attend the Newport Folk Festival. Beautifully decorated hotel, location very convenient to town and water taxis to Fort Adams. Breakfast is to die for, innovative food, hands down best breakfast ever. The staff was friendly and informative. Free parking---and walked everywhere the entire weekend.

We stayed three nights at The Attwater, during Newport Folk Fest weekend. It was by far the best place we've stayed in Newport. Quiet, clean, great attention to every detail... A very cool and relaxed place to stay. The breakfast is really good. Location is perfect and a close walk to our favorite Empire Coffee. We can't wait to return... More

I don't typically write reviews, but the Attwater has a lot of potential, so I am hoping this provides some constructive feedback, or helps future guests with expectations. We reserved a room at the Attwater for our first getaway with our three month old. Their website states they accept well behaved children of all ages, but don't provide cribs or... More

The overall experience was good, with a good ambiance and allowed for a good quality of sleep (were were on the top floor in the main building). Breakfast was a little disappointing in terms of what was on offer, but also the excessive temperature in the room it was served meant you wanted to get in and out as quickly... More

The Attwater is a lovely property. The place is clean and well decorated. The breakfast was fabulous. In fact, I'm going to contact them because I want their overnight oatmeal recipe...it was delicious! I love breakfast and theirs was one of the best I've had. Everything was healthy and delicious. I also loved their baked eggs. I can't remember the... More

Having never been to Newport, I chose the Attwater based on reviews and website. I was very pleasantly surprised that the pictures were in fact accurate! Staff are superb! Any issue is handled promptly. Breakfast is amazing! The website does not do it justice. The room is well appointed, on the smaller size (I had a standard queen), but I... More

The Attwater is slightly out of Newport but that suited us as we prefer a quieter hotel. Rooms are lovely but the bathroom was getting ready for a refurbishment. Breakfast was lovely but too warm, not sure why but it felt like an oven and could have benefited from AC or opening the French doors. We would return on our... More

The bathtub needed replacement; it was stained. The washcloths were new, but the navy ink ran out and coated me before I realized what was happening. Awful. I had to ask for housekeeping service every day. Perhaps one housekeeper is not enough. Also, I left the housekeeper a hefty tip, because I always do. I do not like envelopes telling... More

I was close to to giving it 5 star, however the small room and slightly odd layout made me leave off a star. They did have a fridge in the room which was nice, but it was slightly odd as it as placed at the bottom of an open closet that was tucked in a corner behind a half wall.... More
