we hae stayed at the Armistead Cttage B&B for the past eight years, staying with Romana & Charles while attending a wedding at the Tennis Hall of fame which is right up the road. This B&B is close to the center of town and the mansions so it works out great for anyone going to Newport as a tourist. Romana... More

We recently took our first trip to Newport and did some last minute planning. Romana the innkeeper was so wonderful to work with - she was great at responding quickly and really made us excited to stay there before we even arrived! The house itself is so beautiful - and we truly felt at home as soon as we met... More

The house has such a warm feeling! It was immaculate! We love the décor. The breakfasts were delicious! Romana and Charles are such kind, caring, wonderful people. They... More

Looking at previous reviews... I feel like a broken record. I don't know where to start. My husband and I just returned home from a three night stay at Armistead Cottage. We have NEVER felt so welcomed or LOVED at ANYWHERE we have EVER stayed for a vacation! Romana and Charles are the epitome of life itself. The most compassionate... More

My husband and I had a very nice stay this past weekend at the Armistead Cottage. Romana was such a caring and gracious host. Her breakfasts were delicious and the cookies/mints in front of our door in the evening was such a sweet touch. We also appreciated the fridge with water and soda.The quiet location while being able to walk... More

My daughter and I just returned from Newport and an overnight stay at Armistead Cottage. The draw of this B&B is the lovely owner Romona. She was delightful and made us feel welcome. We enjoyed chatting with her at breakfast. She put coffee out for us early which was appreciated. Very nice side street location in a quiet area. You... More

Just returned from another visit. If you require a immaculately clean, beautifully furnished, comfortable and friendly atmosphere, stay at Armistead Cottage. You won't be sorry. Romana and Charles are the ultimate in innkeepers. Can't wait to go back. This is the BEST B&B. Whenever we visit Armistead Cottage, we hate to leave because we feel that we have visited family...

My mother and I stayed with Romana and Charles in Newport this weekend and it was everything we hoped it would be. After a day touring mansions, it was lovely to come back to the quirkily and charmingly decorated Armistead Cottage. We stayed in the Victorian Room, which had a four-poster bed and fireplace and tiny statuette of Canova's Paolina... More
