The Stewart Room was perfect, good size, huge bathroom, very clean. Liz the innkeeper was very friendly, accommodating, and is a great cook, breakfast was excellent both mornings (especially the French Toast casserole!). Would... More

My family and I spent a late August Friday and Saturday at the Hilltop. We had a wonderful time. The inn is beautifully maintained and the bathrooms were exquisite. The public spaces retained their historical charm but still felt inviting and cozy. The library was stocked with books, magazines and games. The dinning room always had cool drinks and snacks...

Clean room, great house and a terrific patio for coffee or tea in the morning. It was close to everything we needed. The innkeeper Liz, was informative and easy to chat with. She gave us an umbrella to use for the beach. Liz gave excellent advice to us, for our trip into Boston. Excellent food. Blueberry french toast was delicious.

We were part of a party of wedding guests who took all five rooms in the inn for the weekend. We stayed in the Murray room, which was on the small side, but comfortable, charming and nicely appointed. The bathroom was very roomy, clean and seemed newly renovated. The little details like mason jars filled with cotton balls, and chocolates... More

We rented the entire Inn for our friends and family to stay with us for our son's wedding. Liz and her staff could not have been nicer or more accommodating! The Inn is very well appointed and the bathrooms spotless - better than any five star hotel we've ever stayed in. The breakfasts were delicious and afternoon snacks perfect. While... More

The inn is beautiful. Our room was comfortable, and lovely. Liz the innkeeper was extremely helpful, and gave us some great recommendations. Most everything we did was in walking distance. Overall it was a wonderful experience.

My husband and I decided on a last minute trip to Newport and booked the Hilltop Inn after checking numerous inns and hotels online. We liked that the property was just off the main path but still close enough to walk to most places. Liz, the innkeeper, was very welcoming and helpful. We liked that the inn didn't feel overcrowded... More

We stayed at the Hilltop Inn last year for Fourth of July weekend and we had an incredible experience. I had no idea that I was going to be proposed to that weekend, but all of the planning and thoughtfulness of both my fiancé and the Hilltop Inn made it a such special weekend that I will never ever forget....
