This review is long overdue as I stayed at the Thames Guest house with my wife and toddler last summer at the end of August. We had a wonderful time. The owners were so personable and friendly and their dog, Onyx, kept my toddler mesmerized (and entertained, which allowed me some extra minutes of respite). We stayed in the back... More

I couldn't believe we found this place! My husband and I were looking for a get-a-way over Columbus Day Weekend and I started searching the web. This bed and breakfast came up on trip advisor as "the blue suite" We have not had great experiences with bed and breakfast type accomodations. However, after reading all the reviews we decided to...

15 Thames St was the perfect place for us to stay during our trip to Newport. Minutes walk from downtown and located in the historical district. The rooms were lovely, clean and comfortable. Gary & Pat went out of their way to help us and couldn't have been better hosts. Thank you so much, we will be back!

Thames Guest House was a fantastic little abode for a girls weekend in Newport this summer. The location was fantastic - just a few blocks walking from LOTS of shops and restaurants - and also a short distance from many Newport attractions. Beautiful and comfortable rooms and delicious muffins in the morning! The owners and residents of the house are... More

The Guest House is in a great location, near to everything. The owners couldn't be friendlier or more helpful. The place was very clean and bright. There was plenty of room for my family and children. A great backyard and patio made eating outside a pleasure. We hope to return. I highly recommend staying there.

Warm and relaxing vacation and Just what I needed :) Stayed in the Peach Suite this time and hadn't slept better since I stayed in the Green Suite last fall. Added bonus to the Peach Suite is the extra living room. Both suites I stayed in have very large and EXREMELY comfortable beds!!! The fact that you can walk to... More

We had an amazing time staying at Thames House in the Blue Suite. It was our first time in Newport and Pat made us feel extremely welcome and gave us so much info on what to do and where to go. Her and her daughter were so hospitable and made us feel like we were staying with family. The continental... More

The negative points made by the reviewer freewingy below are somewhat factually correct, but I could put a different spin on it. I like staying with relatives, even if I have to spend $250, so I guess our perspectives are different. The owners are warm people. They have guests who have been visiting for over a decade; they even attended... More

This B&B made our stay in Newport (and holiday in New England for that matter), and I can't say enough good things about it. Gary and Pat made my mum and I feel right at home and were great company as well as sources of information on what to do/avoid in Newport. We stayed in the Blue Suite, which was... More

Its like staying with your relatives but having to pay $250 for it. We had a 'private' bath room in a common hallway, which was interesting. The owners stay at the house year round so when you return late or wake up you hear the family around the house. I am not fussy about where I sleep but i have... More

We were sorry to hear that you felt that your stay with us was less than satisfactory. We feel that our prices are in line with (or less than) most comparable establishments in the area. As an owner-occupied and operated establishment, we take pride in our availability to respond to our guests' needs. As in many historic houses, most bathrooms... More
