Located in a quiet neighborhood with lovely homes all around Armistead Cottage definitely fit the bill. Traveling alone, I was looking for a good place to relax but still be able to get to popular attractions quickly and with ease. A quick walk gets you to Easton's Beach, which I enjoyed in the evening to read a book before the... More

I don't normally get sappy, or provide reviews for anything, but this is from the heart. We have stayed with Romana and Charles 5 or 6 times. They provide a fun, interesting and comfortable place to stay with a great breakfast every morning. What they do that no other B&B we have ever stayed at has done is make us... More

My husband and I have been to Armistead Cottage twice and we can't wait to go back! The entire decor is so warm and inviting. Our room was clean and spacious. And the breakfast is so carefully thought out with flavorful muffins and delicious souffles, not to mention the presentation is in such good taste. Romana is the absolute best... More

We have stayed at The Armistead Cottage many times. After trying several B&B's in the area, the Armistead is our absolute favorite! Romana and Charles are wonderful..so warm ,inviting and informative! The rooms are beautifully decorated, immaculate and very reasonably priced. The location is also convenient, close to cliffwalks and downtown! Can't wait to visit again!

What a wonderful stay! Romana was a wonderful hostess! Our room was beautiful, cozy and comfortable. The breakfasts were delightful and we were so happy that Romana sat and chatted during breakfast. She was helpful in every way. The location was perfect - a short 15-20 minute walk to the waterfront.

My husband and I spent a delightful two days at the Armistead Cottage. The carefully appointed rooms and delicious breakfasts aren't even the best part of our stay. We thoroughly enjoyed meeting Romana, seeing her artwork and learning about her life. Very spacious and beautiful rooms, comfortable bed, great breakfast and charming host! Next time we hope to have the... More

This was a two-night getaway for my wife and me and it was excellent! Romana made us feel like long-time friends from the moment we walked in the door. The house sits on a quiet street in a great location in Newport. Probably a 10 minute walk to Intl Tennis Hall of Fame, Audrain Auto Museum and restaurants. A delicious... More

The B&B is located in a very pleasant quiet neighbourhood but is very close to the main areas. Walking from there to the main streets, wharfs, and historic areas is enjoyable and easy. It is also not too far from the southern end entrance to Cliff Walk. Romana and Charles are delightful hosts. My room was very comfortable and well... More

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
