We were trying to find a nice inn with modern amenities (big bathroom, etc) for a little retreat after a nearby wedding. We sure found it at the Hilltop Inn. Liz and her staff were fantastic, the rooms stellar, and food outstanding. Honestly, there really is nothing I could say that didn't meet our expectations. Each room seems to be...

It was a great weekend getaway for my wife's birthday. She loved staying here and we've been to quite a few B&B's through the years. Easy walking to everything in town and even a wine shop on they way back.

Hilltop Inn is a really great place. We couldn't have been happier with everything. Perfect location, clean elegant room, gracious staff, good food, quiet, etc. A classic Newport B&B. We recommend it very highly.

It was nice to receive an unexpected upgrade. The room was large with a fireplace at the foot of the bed. So cozy. The bathroom was very large and the shower was the best. Rain head, lots of jets. The entire Inn was charming. And most importantly to me is that everything was spotlessly clean. I would not hesitate to...

Liz and her staff are wonderful hosts! We stayed in the Murray Room, which was beautifully decorated and clean. Hilltop Inn is perfectly located and we were able to walk to restaurants, shops, and the wharf. We will definitely stay there again when we return.

We loved our stay at the Hilltop Inn. We spent three nights there and stayed in the Murray Room. Accommodations were very comfortable, exceptionally clean and inviting. Liz prepared wonderful breakfasts each day and was a wealth of information on local attractions and restaurants. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Hilltop and look forward to visiting again very soon....

My husband and I wanted to celebrate our anniversary in Newport since it's close to our home and one of our favorite places. We have two small children and were not able to go away for a long time and could only afford one night away from our family. This provided some difficulty in planning a trip because many inns...

We stayed in the Kay Room the night of our wedding and it was fabulous! Cozy fireplace, large private balcony, wonderful king size four poster bed. The bathroom was also gorgeous with modern fixtures and appliances. Breakfast in the morning was delicious - comforting and homemade. I only wish we had more time there! We'll be back!
