Such a refreshing change from the plethora of chain hotels I tend to frequent when travelling for business, the William's Grant Inn was the right choice for Bristol, RI and I hope to never forget the warm hospitality I was shown when I spent two nights there in September 2022. My room was pretty and full of unique character. Although there was no desk to work at, other positives outweighed this and I appreciate that most guests aren't on a business trip like I was! My favourite memories include cuddles with Matteo the sweet golden lab and joining other guests around the table for the TASTIEST breakfast each morning. I highly recommend this beautiful guesthouse for anyone visiting Bristol!
The William's Grant Inn was just perfect for a family get together for 8 of my relatives. We reserved I believe a year in advance, all 5 rooms. The hosts Elizabeth and Doug could not have been warmer or more accommodating. And Mateo their loving rescue dog! And WOW for the included gourmet breakfast in the beautiful room off the garden. We all felt right at home, slept well on comfortable beds and had a lot of laughs in the beautiful garden. Was super clean. My family from different parts of the US loved Bristol. Walking distance to the waterfront and fabulous restaurants. My 98 year old mother, who lives nearby, joined us for one of the breakfasts as well as my brother every day. Elizabeth and Doug were so kind to welcome them. Price was much more reasonable than Newport area. Hope to return.…
We stayed 3 nights in the Bristol Room. It is the smallest room in the house but I wanted to be on the 2nd floor. Very comfortable, lots of windows. Real working gas fireplace. The bathroom was very unique, small room that had a pedestal sink, toilet and table. Then another closet door that opened to reveal the shower! We found it amusing for sure, 3 days is the most we'd want to use this split type bathroom tho. Nice toiletries provided. Bedding was soft and comfy. No TV in room but didn't miss it. Old house sounds like creaking floors give this home charm. The only noise we heard from other guests were some loud guys who came in from California on our last night, otherwise everyone was very quiet and respectful. Very cute garden in back where we sat and had coffee one evening and watched the large goldfish in the pond. The breakfasts were incredibly delicious and presented so nicely! We met some really cool people from other states and even Ireland! The owners here are down to earth and genuinely kind people who really seem to care for their guests. Very helpful with things to do in the area. They live on site and do all the work themselves. They have the sweetest dog called Mateo who we just loved. Parking is right on the side of the house, off street. Coffee and tea available any time. We recommend anyone coming to Rhode Island to stay here. Thank you for your wonderful hospitality! …
Lovely inn in wonderful colonial town. Doug and Elisabeth were charming and accommodating hosts, and the breakfasts were outstanding. I'll look forward to staying there again. I'd recommend it for visits to any Narragansett Bay area.
We just stayed here for the weekend. This inn is lovely! The decor has a mix of the old and new and is tastefully done. The innkeepers Elizabeth and Doug are warm, helpful and personable. They make a delicious gourmet breakfast that changes every day. We did not take advantage of the back of the property but it is inviting with a patio, chairs, fire pit and koi pond. Our room was large and comfortable. The bed and bedding were great. All amenities provided. Homemade cookies on the first day were a treat! This property is also in a great location and you can walk to restaurants and the waterfront. Overall a great stay and would recommend this lovely inn.
So glad I found this place. Met all of our expectations and Doug and Elizabeth graciously answered all our questions and even modified breakfast to meet my dietary needs. Thank you Doug and Elizabeth! Also enjoyed time outside enjoying their backyard at night.
The Inn in on a quiet street in Bristol within 30 minutes of Newport. The innkeepers, Doug and Elizabeth were very hospitable. The breakfasts were excellent, suggested they write a cookbook! We enjoyed our stay and would gladly return.
Monique and I enjoyed a wonderful stay at Williams Grant Inn. A beautiful old Inn; as soon as we saw it from the road we were impressed. The coolest surprise was to be greeted coming in by Mateo, a handsome and very friendly yellow lab. Doug and Elizabeth are very nice and knowledgeable host. This place is comfortable and homey. Finally, the food is so good. OMG, these breakfast were to die for. Thank you so much, we truly enjoyed our stay and your company as well. Brian and Monique from NH
My mother and I stayed in this beautiful Bed and Breakfast during the 4th of July week. The Innkeepers, Doug and Elizabeth, were super friendly, well informed of local area events and "must sees" and made THE MOST spectacular breakfasts daily (as well as the "welcome cookies" ) The location was perfect for the parade and other festivities and very close to a few museums and great restaurants... also very close to the harbor... I would highly recommend the William Grant's Inn for for celebrations, a quick weekend getaway or even for longer stays. It is an historical, charming and welcoming place to stay.
My Husband and I along with his parents came to Bristol RI for a wedding and stayed at this quaint bed and breakfast. From the moment we arrived we were blown away by everything. The owners Elizabeth and Doug along with Matteo the Inn pup were incredibly welcoming. Our room was located upstairs and was stocked with fresh robes and towels. The room was very bright and airy. They have an adorable garden out back with a Koi pond. We enjoyed many hours in the garden. Anything we needed they were more than happy to accommodate. Breakfast the next morning was outstanding! We absolutely enjoyed every moment of our stay at the Williams Grant Inn and will absolutely stay there again.
