We had a wonderful weekend stay at the Francis Malbone House Inn. Delicious full breakfast and afternoon tea. We relaxed in the courtyard with a selection of cakes and cookies, each one was a treat! Friendly staff and easy walk to town. Our room was pretty, comfortable and clean. Would like to return again soon!

The Inn is lovely and in a great location. We were able to walk to everything. The room we had was on the third floor and the innkeeper actually carried my suitcase up all three flights, way above and beyond what I would expect. The room was not large, but was comfortable. The best part of the Inn was the... More

So glad you were able to enjoy Newport and our wonderful location in town. We do offer different size rooms on 3 floors at many different price points- this way, everyone can enjoy the same great service & wonderful experience at the Malbone House. We purchase our coffee from a local gourmet coffee roaster- so glad you like it! Will More

Tim C, It was a pleasure to have you both at the Inn - the best part of the job is our wonderful guests and a close second is the food for sure. Our chefs Colleen and Maryellen do a fantastic job, tough on the waistline but what can you do! We look forward to welcoming you back to the... More

We stayed for 3 nights and overall it was a good experience. On the plus side, the Malbone is perfectly located with actual parking, visually beautiful, has a lovely garden that is quite enjoyable for breakfast, there is a small feast featuring cooked foods and sweet goodies in late afternoon, well beyond the usual The breakfast is also great, and...

We have just returned from a wonderful long weekend at the Francis Malbone House Inn. There is a reason that it is the top rated Newport B&B on Trip Advisor. It is the fifth B&B that we have visited in Newport and is vastly superior to every other place that we have stayed. While the accommodations are lovely, thoughtful and... More

We are so glad we chose this hotel and can't wait to go back! The Frances Malbone House Inn is a spacious, beautifully renovated colonial building right in the heart of Newport. The location couldn't be better, but the wonderful people who populate this hotel, along with the delicious breakfasts and afternoon teas, are what we will remember most!

The overall experience was more than we expected. From the welcome tour of the property, to the incredible afternoon "tea", to the wonderful breakfast in the courtyard. The rooms are beautifully finished with every detail well planned and attended to. Can't wait to come back in the off season to use the fireplaces and relax for a few days. Thanks... More

Our experience at the Malbone House was nothing short of exceptional. The charm of the home and more importantly the attention given to us from the staff of Anne Marie, Janet, Sue and Maryellen from the time we made the reservation to the recommendations and booking for sailing and dinner afterward - we simply could not have asked for better...

Great staff, beautiful rooms, convenient location. This time we brought our three children. If you're visiting Newport, staying at a historic inn is second to none in getting the full experience.
