4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

This boutique guest house off the beaten track has some quirky charm and stylish interior. We stayed in the guest cottage next door to the main hotel. The room was definitely not your standard Sheraton. The floor plan made the room a bit narrow and a bit crowded, but the sitting area was separate from the bedroom, which was nice.... More

This small boutique hotel in an old building has been refurbished to a high standard. Our deluxe king was spacious, and our only minor criticism was the small and low sink. Staff are friendly and helpful. Breakfast is interesting in a good way. Small tasting plates of poached egg with quinoa, bacon with spinach and potatoes, freshly baked scones and... More

We've been to Newport many times but this was our first stay at the Attwater, and we were very pleased. we stayed for one night. The room was clean and comfortable, the staff was very friendly and helpful, and the breakfast was superb. You can tell they had put a lot of thought into the presentation of breakfast. There were...

The Attwater is a nice small B&B beautifully located between the harbor and the Cliff Walk. We just parked the car, and could get to most of where we wanted to go in less than 15 minute walk. It is in a safe neighborhood, with some of the friendliest people - even at 6am offering directions and dining suggestions. Oh,... More

Based on Trip Advisor reviews my wife and I stayed 4 nights at The Attwater. A boutique hotel with the coziness and warmth of a B&B. Room was very comfortable. Leah, the property manager was the best we've ever met. She was very pleasant, courteous and helpful. Tiffany and Tiara were wonderful at room cleanliness and maintenance. Will definitely stay...

We were supposed to stay at the new "sister" hotel in town, but due to construction delays we were moved over to the Attwater. What a happy accident. We ended up with a suite which included a gas fireplace. We nicknamed our bed "cloudbed" since it was like sleeping on a . . . Breakfast was interesting and lovely. Front... More

Decided to stay at The Attwater after receiving a fabulous rate from Jetsetter. We stayed in the King suite which was like staying in you very own apartment. It had a nice living room with a fireplace, a bedroom and a very spacious bathroom. The bed was very comfy and the pillows were just like sleeping on clouds. The hotel... More

Before I got to Newport, I thought the Attwater might have been too good to be true. I just get skeptical when I see that many glowing reviews on Trip Advisor. But it's really that good. Great style - funky and classic at the same time. Friendly hosts/owners. Impeccably clean (I mean the hotel, though the hosts were also clean).... More

We would highly recommend this hotel. The room was spotless and the bed was quite comfortable. The King room had a mini fridge and a small seating area which was perfect for us to have a few drinks in the room. The breakfast hit the spot. They also give you an iPad with info about the area pre loaded. The... More

Stayed here with my adult son for his job interview in the area. Staff was very friendly, parking lot available, more like a modern bed and breakfast. We were upgraded to a King suite, with sofa bed, two flat screen TVs, Keurig coffee maker in the room. Map of the area provided with area highlighted. Lovely breakfast in the morning.... More
