The Armistead is a labor of love for the owners, Charles and Romana. We benefited at the end of June from all that they have done in making their property a premier B&B. Let me begin with the owners; they are so welcoming. They want you to enjoy their home and their city. Charles was leaving for New York so... More

There are many accommodations in Newport but when I spoke with Romana over the phone, I knew The Armistead would be the best decision. From the moment we arrived we felt relaxed and welcome. Their home is impeccable; filled with beautiful antiques and European touches. Our room (The Victorian) was cozy and romantic. Breakfast was three delicious courses! We stayed... More

We stayed two nights at the Armistead in Newport. It is on a quiet side street not far from a beach. The Cottege is filled with antiques and items of interest. The owners Charlie and Romana were very friendly and most helpful. We walked the cliff walk, visited two mansions, the Breakers and Rough Point. Both are well worth visiting.... More

We were beyond impressed by Armistead B&B. The place is beautiful, clean and the breakfasts are amazing! The hosts are warm, kind and make you feel right at home. My husband and I enjoyed a romantic pre dinner cocktail on the STUNNING porch and listened to the peace and quiet of the stunning neighbourhood. The location is amazing as you... More

The Armistead Bed and Breakfast is a lovely Bed and Breakfast within walking distance of Downtown Newport and attractions. Romona and Charles are warm, hospitable and knowledgeable hosts The gourmet breakfast is at 9:00 am and doesn't disappoint! The Bed and Breakfast only has two guest rooms, which make it a nice and intimate experience. Perfect for an anniversary get-... More

Two weeks ago we returned to Newport and stayed at the Armistead. Every room is decorated differently and the antiques are a true conversation piece. . Romona and Charles were so warm and made us feel so comfortable and special. Romona is great at advising on where to visit and dine. She is a great cook, often beginning each breakfast... More

We love Newport and return frequently and always stay at a different place. This time we selected the Armistead Cottage and we loved every minute! The cottage is quaint, nicely decorated, with a lovely large front porch, gardens and it is a short distance from the Cliff Walk! From the moment we arrived we felt like relatives returning home...Ramona was... More

If you are looking for a place to stay in Newport, RI and you've stumbled on Armistead Cottage, my advice is to stop looking and book now. This summer, we've returned to visit Romona & Charles (owners) for a third time and already planning our fourth for next year. I could tell you all the typical things you'd expect to... More

We stop in Newport for a night every summer on the way to the Cape. We have tried many B&Bs and keep the cost under $200. This is the best so far. We like to location away from Thames Street, yet close to Bellevue Avenue and First Beach. Romana is an excellent host.
