The room was spotless and well furnished. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The Black Duck is close enough too walk to the popular restaurants and downtown attractions. The innkeeper gave us a great description of the area and where some popular attractions were.

This is an absolutely beautiful Victorian B & B but the beddings were worn and, sadly, because the Inn is one of three that the owners have and breakfast is served down the street at another of their properties, for me, this place lacked the intimacy , friendliness, personal touch, cozziness or whatever it is that I so look so...

Thank you for your helpful review. The guests who book at The Blue Jewel, which has only three rooms, are usually told about the breakfast down the block when booking. I hope we remembered to inform you of this when you made your reservation. We are constantly upgrading and will put new bedding on the list for the planned spring... More

Can't beat the location - it's walking distance to everything (a little longer walk to the beach), and the people were very friendly at check in (we never saw them again as this Inn was separate from check in - they have three locations). Breakfast food and choices were also very good. Property itself, in particular, the rooms, were tired.... More

This hotel is a perfect quiet place in the centre of Newport with plenty of restaurants and shops. Your car can be parked nearby. The room was spacious, service is great with coffee all day available and a good breakfast in the morning.

For the cost, this Inn is not worth it. The bed was made with sheets inside out, the thread count on the towels is just a bit better than a budget hotel, the breakfast was mediocre, and the parking was difficult. We own a rental property in Carmel, CA, so we understand the need for upscale amenities in a city... More

We are so sorry that you were disappointed in your stay at our inn. Parking is at a premium all over Newport, and two of our three inns have onsite parking,and the third has parking diagonally across the street on the same block. We wish we had known that you preferred the onsite as we would have matched you to... More

My husband and I were very comfortable here. It was quiet and we could walk to Bowman's Wharf and Thames Street. Parking was no problem. The staff was very nice and helpful. Although our room was small, they still managed to provide a refrigerator and nice amenities.

My dad and I recently visited this b&b to have a nice little getaway in Newport. We were lucky enough to stay in the Narragansett suite thanks to the weekend we chose. What an amazing room! It was fully equipped with a comfy pillow top queen and fluffy pillows. Not to mention the lovely smell of all the sheets and... More

In mid-August my daughter was getting married in Jamestown (about 15 minutes drive away) and she wanted a place that she could have the wedding party stay and prepare in comfort.
