We stayed at the Armistead Cottage from Sunday 7/17/2016 to Wednesday 7/20/2016. Our experience was a lot more than we expected. Since we both love antiques and the Victorian style of homes and decor, we found this Victorian Cottage to be just that, romantic and beautiful. Our hosts, Romana and Charles, were very welcoming and warm. Their hospitality made us... More

While in Newport this past weekend, my wife and I decided to try out a bed and breakfast. We had never stayed at one in the past so we figured it would be a fun new adventure. Little did I know, it turned out to be such a great experience! Even from the initial phone call to inquire about a... More

Beautiful inside and out. The furnishings and wall hangings were amazing. Nice room, very clean (which is very high up on my list for places to stay). It was very relaxing to sit on the big porch after a full day of touring. The breakfasts were delicious and the breakfast table setting was elegant. The owner, Romana, was funny, sweet,... More

My boyfriend and I just spent July 4th weekend at Armistead Cottage and it was absolutely amazing. It was so clean and comfortable and Romana and Charles are incredibly friendly, warm, and welcoming hosts. They helped us pick out restaurants and activities and all of their recommendations were fantastic. Staying at Armistead instead of a hotel really gives you a... More

My boyfriend and I booked a last minute getaway and stumbled upon this gem of a B and B. It's proximity to all the restaurants/bars made it so convenient. It's also just blocks away from Cliff Walk and Newport's legendary mansions. Romana and her husband were so welcoming and gave us great recommendations. Our room was cozy and we felt... More

The house is located in a quiet neighbourhood and has a large veranda where you can sit and relax. It is about a 15 minute walk to Newport restaurants etc through a very nice neighbourhood. The room we stayed in had everything you would expect and more--comfortable bed, sitting area, fireplace and air conditioning, and a well appointed bathroom. Charles... More

This B&B is a wonderful place to stay to relax. Our hosts, Romana and Charles were lovely and very accommodating. The bedroom we stayed in was spacious and had an extremely comfortable king-sized bed. Every detail was attended to including guest refrigerator, access to coffee or tea when desired, night lights, flashlight in the closet, and extra blankets etc. Location... More

Out of all the B&B's we have stayed at all over New England, this one is by far, hands down, the very best. The owners, Charles and Romana, make you feel extremely welcome in their howe. They are wonderful hosts. The Room are comfortable and in perfect condition. We will definitely stay at Armistead Cottage again.

Armistead cottage is a charming BnB in Newport. The owner Charles made us feel so welcome. My fiancé loved the dish of homemade chocolate chip cookies that were brought to us in the room upon arrival. This was our first BnB experience and our expectations were beyond met. The room had its own private bathroom and the fireplace made for... More

Am writing this 2 months late but only because each time I've thought about doing so haven't been at computer, and vice versa. My husband, adult son and I had 4 nights at Armistead Cottage and can endorse all the other positive comments in reviews: Newport is a lovely town and the house is well-appointed for the town centre, waterfront...
