Had a wonderful overnight stay! All the reviews were accurate. Room 5 was perfect for us and quiet on the third floor. The property is very clean, elegantly decorated and right in the heart of Newport. Afternoon tea and breakfast offered great selections. Will was awesome with his suggestions. Thank you for a great visit!

It's easy to see why this is their 25th year in business, this place ROCKS! We love staying here, beautiful rooms, very clean and the staff is wonderful. The location is perfect and its a good value when you consider the parking is free and breakfast is complimentary and delicious!

The Francis Malbone House provided a warm, enchanting, relaxing stay that was much needed after a long winter. Afternoon tea was delightful with great snacks and desserts. The house features three common areas/sitting rooms which provides some privacy not afforded by other B&Bs. Our room had a great fireplace, comfy bed, and chairs to sit and read. The bathroom was...

Everyone is so friendly and helpful. The house is so clean, rooms are cozy and beds are comfortable! The mid day treats are a bonus especially... More

I spent two nights at the Francis Malbone House on a solo mini-break. This is pretty much my ideal B&B: a historical building, carefully and graciously decorated, yet still homey and comfortable, not too formal. Guests share three comfortable parlors, and afternoon tea--every bit as good as it looks on the website--is laid out in a fourth. Munch on homemade... More

I was a little worried about spending a snowy weekend in Newport. But when you are staying at Francis Malbone House anytime is a great time in Newport. Everyone is friendly and helpful. The breakfasts are excellent, but of course the best part is the afternoon tea. Its more like an early supper. Had a great relaxing weekend, snow and... More

We again thoroughly enjoyed our mini getaway at The Francis Malbone House Inn. It is quickly becoming our favorite. Accommodations were wonderful, breakfast scrumptious and the staff couldn't have been friendlier!!

My wife and I love staying in older historic places that have character. This place was perfect. The wide planked floor, fireplace in the bedroom, beautiful molding around the doors and windows, delicious breakfast and afternoon tea with goodies and a wonderful staff all made the time special. Thank you to Janet who went above and beyond as an innkeeper.... More
