“Great place to stay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

We stayed at the Belle View Inn a couple of weeks ago. We had a great time! Lorna and Tony were very welcoming, and they both gave us lots of ideas about where to go in Newport. The Inn's location is terrific! We walked all over downtown Newport which was great. The breakfasts were splendid as well. The baked goods were a great way to start the day. Our room, the Freebody Park Suite was quite spacious. The parking lot next to to the Inn was very well located as well. On the weekend we visited we were able to go to both the Newport Boat Show, and the International Tennis Hall of Fame. The ever popular mansion tours were very fun to visit as well.

We look forward to staying again at the Belle View Inn on our next visit to Newport.

Lovely B &B in a good and quiet location. Lorna is very helpful and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Room was clean, nicely done and relaxing. Breakfast included fresh fruits and pastry of your choice along with all the other standard choices. Off street parking was nice and an interesting neighborhood to do your morning walk!

The Belle View was immaculate in cleanliness, spotless wooden floors and richly decorated. The breakfasts were superb. Access to the Newport Mansions was great via bicycles, which we had brought. It afforded us the opportunity to enjoy the neighborhoods at our pace. Local restaurants were in walking distance, and the harbor only a very short distance away. The Cliff Walk was also within easy walking distance from the Inn.

Just returned from a fantastic stay at the Inn. The room was immaculate and it was a comfortable place to relax. Ideal location near everything. The breakfast each morning was delicious with various breakfast choices. The Inn Keepers Tony and Lorna are very kind and offer recommendations to help determine where to have dinner and sight see. Emily the assistant Inn Keeper also made sure we were happy. The view of the Ospry's nest was an extra bonus that makes this Inn unique. Pricing is extremely reasonable and you are doing an injustice if you don't stay here. We will frequent with another trip in the very near future!

I'm a native Newporter and when I come back to visit, I like knowing that this is going to be here. Our particular room was quite large, very clean, and had high-quality decor. Although very quiet, it's in a central location - can walk to many excellent restaurants and interesting parts of Newport. You are adjacent to a lot of interesting history - Tennis Hall of Fame on one side an early Newport Jazz Festival on the other. Breakfast was excellent and Lorna is a very friendly, thoughtful host. She really cares about her guests' comfort and satisfaction. If I know friends are going to Newport, this is the place I recommend.

The hospitality here was excellent and our room was huge - almost like an entire apartment for much cheaper than most B&B's will give you for a smaller space. Definitely worth every penny and more. Lorna is great and gives all kinds of recommendations for things to do and see. The room was also very clean and modern. Breakfast was plentiful with hand selected pastries every day. Some reviewers mentioned the fact that the inn faces the grocery store loading dock, but we honestly didn't mind that. It's not like you're spending all day there - we were so busy doing activities and sight seeing that we left early in the mornings and came back late at night. It was actually very convenient to everything (maybe 15 minute walk to the harbor) and we were treated very kindly. My only wish is that the shower would have been a little bigger. The bathroom was large for an inn but that shower was so tiny (and I am not a large person). A small point though since we absolutely loved our stay here. Thanks for having us!

We stayed at this lovely Inn during the International Tennis Hall of Fame Induction weekend.
We could not have picked a nicer place. Besides the location being perfect, the Inn itself
was top notch.

The Innkeepers, Tony and Lorna do a fantastic job! Tony's talented ability to design a
room is amazing. The furnishings are just great, along with the woodwork and fixtures.
Lorna greeted us warmly, and the atmosphere for the delicious continental breakfast
was perfect, either sitting outside on the deck or in the beautiful dining room.

We would certainly stay there again with no reservations, as we cannot say enough about
this charming Inn. Parking was terrific too, and that is a real plus!

Thanks to Lorna and Tony for a perfect stay!

Jane and Nancy
