My husband John and I came here for our third wedding anniversary. We take a weekend trip every year on our anniversary over Columbus Day weekend and we were not disappointed during our stay here at Murray House bed and breakfast. The amenities are wonderful with heated pool, hot tub and private social areas. You have quick and easy access to Ocean Avenue, the cliff walk and downtown Newport, the location of this bed and breakfast really can’t be beat. We lucked out with amazing weather and enjoyed bike riding around the coast and exploring the coastline. We were not able to interact with Noreen in person all that much because of the COVID-19 policies for safety, however she still managed to make us feel welcome in her home and she was immediately available via email throughout our weekend stay. The room was clean and had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. The care she takes in decorating her rooms and the care with which she tends her beautiful garden is evident. We can definitely see ourselves returning for another stay!

These is no place you'd want to visit especially during covid than this B&B. A safe haven amongst the beautiful gardens in Newport RI. A swimming pool, jacuzzi, private places to lounge and relax with friends. I've been here before and keep coming back. Noreen the hostess has been phenomenal in keeping the rooms clean and safe. All entrances are private and the adorable kitchenettes are tastefully thought out. This place is close to everything from beaches, shopping, sailing excursions, hiking and it's even pet friendly. Anna and friends.

Hi Anna, Just getting around to answering your great review of Murray House. So good to see you two again. And loved your new dog. Thank you for all the wonderful things that you said about Murray House. And for bringing up the fact that Murray House is as Covid safe as you are going to get when traveling. You mentioned all that is important and I thank you for that. Keeping my guests safe is very important to me. And it does go both ways. You two managed to find good things to do in Newport and still be safe. Looking forward to seeing you both (oops, 3) again. Cheers, Noreen

We loved staying at Noreens home. Noreen does a great job running her places. I can only hope to have her energy. It was a nice 5 night vacation needed during Covid times. Each guess has their own private entrance to their room. The views from our room were picturesque. One of Brad Pitts homes is directly across the pond if you care about those things. Noreen takes great care of her grounds. The weekend was a bit more quite.Her grounds keepers were quite tentative. There are many beautiful flowers to view. We loved watching the koi in the pond. The pool was perfect on the hot days. I used the jacuzzi just once. It worked for us with no issues. she likes to keep it at 104 and careful of the cover. Rules are posted nearby. The home is less than 10 minutes from the beach and the end of the cliff walk. Mansions are nearby too. I enjoyed being away from the crowdedness of downtown. I had specific requests and she accommodated our needs. We hope to return soon.

Hey Jannine, Thanks for the lovely review. And you noticed so many things about Murray House. It was nice to read and live in someone else's view point. And all good! Many thanks for coming and please do come again. Bring Mike and the 3 Chiwas too. They were all lovely, and you were great guests. By the way, you put my cleaning girl out of a job. She said you cleaned the room better than she would. .She was jealous! (smile) Loved it!

My husband and I stayed at Murray House when we visited Newport to celebrate our 25th Anniversary. We were a bit nervous to travel in the time of Covid, however I'm happy to report the B&B was spotless. We were also given the option to bring our own linens if we were more comfortable, however we chose to use what was provided and never doubted our choice. Every room in the B&B has it's own private outside entrance, with a sitting area to enjoy the beautiful Newport evenings. We had the Poolside Veranda room and my husband and I enjoyed our breakfasts and a dinner sitting on our comfortable private deck. Loved it! Inside the room the bed was super comfortable, the bathroom and room itself was large and fully appointed with all you need. Believe it or not, there was also a kitchenette in the room! Fridge, stove top, microwave, sink, dishes, table and chairs. Everything you need to make yourself a meal if you don't feel like going out. Outside your room is a pool and hot tub - both clean and refreshing after visiting the beach, which is only a 5 minute walk away from the B&B. The owner, Noreen, was extremely responsive and friendly. The pre-arrival was handled by email and was clear and easy to understand. If there's any issues or questions Noreen answers your emails almost instantly. In person, she's friendly and a wealth of information about Newport. Overall, we highly recommend Murray House and can't wait for our next visit to Newport and when we go we definitely will be staying at this Bed & Breakfast.

My wife, our 11 week old puppy and I had a had a very wonderful stay at Murray House in the very clean, comfortable and well appointed Garden Terrace Suite. A self contained garden to enjoy such lovely weather. Very comfortable bed w/ a/c & fan. Spacious bathroom and a well equipped kitchenette with lots of little touches to make our stay more pleasant. Great location, 5 mins drive / 25 mins walk from the harbor entertainment district. Lots of beautiful architecture and nature to explore by foot. Our host, Noreen was very communicative and responsive by email and phone. The pre-arrival information provided by email was very helpful to ensure smooth *& contact free check in. Noreen's B&B is well set up to provide easy social distancing from other guests & she has clearly taken extensive steps to adapt to the current additional requirements to operative with absolute minimal risk to her guests which is very important. Throughout we felt welcome and the accommodation was private, clean & tasteful. We will definitely recommend Murray House to anyone visiting Newport and it will be top f our list when we next return.
