“Loved the B&B feel of this place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

The reception, lobby and breakfast area are decorated like a colonial "inn"--like a grand house, and the feeling is much more like a B&B or inn than it is a chain hotel. The manager was interesting to talk to, breakfast was adequate, our room was large and the bathroom was huge. I really liked the upscale atmosphere. It's just a quick 5 minute drive around the lake to the Cliffwalk area and the start of Bellevue Ave where the mansions are. But you definitely need a car. It's located in more of a residential area with no shops or anything pedestrian friendly nearby.

I almost cancelled our reservation when i read previous reviews but i'm glad i didn't. This is a lovely Victorian Inn a few miles from Newport; classy, clean and quiet. We had a very spacious room on the 3rd floor away from the elevator, which I had requested. Wayne was at the desk every day,gave us good directions, very helpful. Very ample continental breakfast;can eat inside or on the porch. Drinks and fresh fruit all day. Would definitely stay here again..

Room Tip: Elevator goes up to 2nd floor so must be able to climb 15 steps to large 3rd floor rooms but well wo...

The MOST comfortable bed EVER!! I slept like a dog, the room exceeded expectations in every way: Huge high ceiling, nice decor, quiet, convenient to Newport and all of Aquidneck, easy to find. Way better than a chain hotel.
The breakfast might have been the only weak point, get down there early, some people like to hog a table and sit and visit when they should finish and get a move on. Don't miss the lovely deck out back or you can take your breakfast on a tray back up to your room. Great selection, but I get the feeling people also take advantage of the juice in bottles and pocket more than they need. It's not an open pantry, people...
Very convenient to laundry, restaurants, ice cream (Becky's and Newport Creamery - WOW).

Room Tip: Second floor above the entrance, just perfect!!

Stayed just one night after a long day viewing mansions in Newport. It was nice to get out of the busy Newport area. Older building but well kept. Room was comfortable, clean and quiet. Nice complimentary breakfast. Friendly staff.

it was a friday before lunch time and we had to wander down the hallway to find someone to check us in. we booked on Orbitz and they had all the details but he took great pains to get us to repeat our details and typed it in with 1 finger as slowly as possible. it took us 15 minutes to check in. not a smile , thank you or hello the whole time. there were 2 other couples loitering waiting. this was slow season. god help him when it is the summer.

i don't care if you have 1 star or 2, put a person at the front desk who has clean clothes and does not look tortured. we got the corner suite and it was sad. never seen carpet laid so poorly. the sofa had seen it's days too. it sloped forward big time.

We loved this place, it used to be a nursing home, but you would never know. It is so clean, and not far from any of the great places to visit in Newport. Very safe, clean, quiet, and as stated by another, almost like a bed and breakfast. Breakfast was just fine.
No pool, so take the noisy kids elsewhere. Nice to stay somewhere without kids running up and down the halls. Staff was exceptional.

I had a very great experience at this lovely warm and welcoming hotel... It looks like a bed and breakfast manor...

The staff was wonderful, very helpful and welcoming...

Very safe and quiet area... Not many parking spaces but feel very secure...

Very nice small room, very comfy bed, fridge, microwave, flat screen tv and good wifi Internet...

Only one down side : no desk or working space in the room (had to use small lamp table) and breakfast area is very limited...

A great place to stay overall...
