There wasn't much to do in Newport as many things were closed. It was cold outside, but the Malbone house was cozy and comfy. We had dinner at the White Horse Tavern which was a great place for a winter dinner...very dark and warm fires in the fireplaces. the food was good too. Our room at the Malbone H.was lovely with a nice fireplace...on the first floor, right inside the door. It would be nice in the warm weather as there is a little courtyard. However, my husband and I both prefer the old part of the Inn. Breakfast was wonderful and so was tea....a lovely place.
