My boyfriend and I stayed for two nights and had a fabulous experience! My parents suggested that we stay there and we were so happy with our choice. The owners and staff are pleasant and friendly, and the food is delicious. It's in a great location. I highly recommend the Malbone House!!

Based on a prior spectacular stay at Francis Malbone two years ago, we chose this delightfully quaint B & B as the venue for our "Destination for Two" Wedding. We were not disappointed!!! The "Elopement Package" was 100% all-inclusive, and the wonderful Malbone staff took care of literally EVERYTHING--Wedding Officient, witnesses, photographer, roses and champagne for the room, bridal bouquet...

Beautiful home, great location, delicious food, and the most wonderful hosts you could imagine. Janet and Will helped make our 10th anniversary trip just perfect. They are knowledgable, helpful, friendly and let you rest, relax and have fun. Can't imagine staying anywhere else in Newport.

Stayed only for one night. Excellent location. Very friendly innkeepers, delicious breakfast, adorable courtyard. Everything was very clean,relaxing atmosphere with complimentary gourmet snacks during mid afternoon. The room and bed were comfortable, of appropriate size and pleasant but somewhat simple. Small shower area with poor water pressure. A little overpriced in my opinion, but in all fairness, a good value... More

We have stayed in many Bed & Breakfasts over the years, but this was by far the best. Everything from the décor, comfy beds, and friendly, helpful staff was excellent. If you stay here be prepared to gain five pounds. The gourmet breakfast and afternoon tea were wonderful with daily creations made on premise by a wonderful chef and kitchen... More

We drive in from Providence anticipating another relaxing and... More

My husband and I had a wonderful stay at the Malbone House Inn in mid June, and we missed the comfort of the luxurious King bed we had there right away! I dare say the sheets and mattress were just as good, if not better, than at the Sofitel. You'll have a restful night's sleep here. Also, toiletries are by... More

This place is located near the shops and restaurants. The mansions is well maintained. The guest rooms are very nice. Breakfast and afternoon tea are both delightful. We got great dinner recommendations from the people there.
