This place has it all! It's a very short walk to the heart of town, but quiet at the same time. There's a large backyard, a charming feel, and owners who take the time to welcome you. Another plus is that many Inns in Newport do not have innkeepers present all the time. Not only are the owners available, but... More

We booked this accommodation about two hours before we arrived in Newport. It was well located and the hosts, Donna and Richard were extremely helpful with advice about where to eat and what to see in the short time we were there. The continental breakfast was excellent. A highlight for us was Brownie, the beagle. He was very well behaved,... More

An excellent location in one of Newport's Historic areas. On arrival Donna gave my wife and I the lowdown on where to go,how to get there, and why we might like it. Extremely helpful as we had only 2 days in town. Donna's care and attention made our trip something special. Our room though small,was comfortable and cosy although it... More

Our hosts, Donna and Richard, along with their friendly puppy, were wonderful! The bedroom was small-ish, but the size and amenities in the tiled bathroom (with Jacuzzi tub) made up for it quickly. The bed was comfortable and toasty warm. The Inn, located on an off-street in downtown Newport, was clean and beautifully decorated with period furniture, art works and... More

We visited the Historic Hill Inn over this past winter, and stayed in the "Budget Room", which amounted to about 120 square feet of a bed, an old CRT television (without working cable) on a dresser, and a bureau with some antique knick-knacks. When we arrived we meet the innkeeper, who offered to upgrade us for an additional charge as... More

We regret that this reviewer did not enjoy the same positive experience as the vast majority of our guests. We appreciate the opportunity to correct the inaccuracies put forth. Lets begin with the facts, none of which the reviewer disclosed. The reviewer booked our least expensive room online where the size & amenities are described in detail, along with photo's... More

I've stayed here every time I come to Newport (about 4 times) and I absolutely love it. The location can't be beat and the hosts, Richard and Donna are both wonderful people-very welcoming, friendly, helpful and gracious. The Inn itself is beautiful and the rooms are very comfortable. Also, a really nice selection of breakfast items. Highly recommended. Actually my... More

The Historic Hill Inn is a funky and friendly bed and breakfast in the center of Newport. My wife and I arrived to a huge room, with a wonderfully comfortable king-size bed, period and mixed bric-a-brac galore, an old-fashioned 26" tv, and a bottle of champagne nestled in an ice-filled champagne cooler (it was my wife's birthday). This room had... More

My husband and I celebrated our 1 year wedding anniversary in Newport recently and had originally made room reservations at another bed & breakfast in the downtown area. When we arrived to check in we were told there was a mix up with our reservation and the bed and breakfast had no rooms available. That reservation mishap turned out to... More

Richard and Donna were great host and hostess for out 3 day 4 night visit to Newport. They make you feel at home immediately and have wonderful suggestions for where to eat and what to see. The Inn is close to great restaurants, the wharf and shopping. Just a five minute drive to the Mansions and the Ocean walk. Room... More

Spent 2 week there. Room and bathroom were very nice, clean and comfortable. Slept with the windows open every night, I could just hear the fog horn in the distance when falling asleep. Great location for walking to lots of places of interest. Dedicated parking a real plus in that part of town. Couple running the place were very hospitable... More
