This was a Groupon getaway for 2 nights and 3 days. It included 2 nights stay, parking, and a full breakfast each morning. First of all, it's an excellent location. It's an easy walk into town and area restaurants, shops, etc. The room was very nice; with a queen bed, a jetted tub, and a nice roomy bathroom. The A/C... More

We are glad you liked the accommodations but are sad that you were disappointed with the breakfast. We do not claim to have professional chefs, and sometimes everyone comes all at once which can cause a glut in the space. Newport's historic hill was built on tiny fishing village and along with it's quaint charm comes crowded downtown streets and... More

You will be hard pressed to find a hotel or inn for this price range in this location. I have been frequenting Newport for years and this Inn has the perfect location! You are equidistant from upper and lower Thames so no matter where you are going the walk isn't far. The inn itself was quaint, cute and clean. Breakfast... More

The location is perfect. The people were amazing, delicious breakfast served every morning. We stayed in the champagne suite which was very spacious and included a large jacuzzi tub. Easy parking in the back. 30 sec walk to Thames street. Can't wait to come back!

We stayed at Black Duck Inn for three nights in June. The Inn is located just one block from Bowen's Wharf and was a perfect location in Newport. Our room was small but quite comfortable. We were treated with a bottle of Chardonnay (the rooms in the Inn are all named after wine, and thus our room was "the Chardonnay")... More

Close to everything and great people that run the B&B. We had a few great breakfast with other friendly people that were staying at the Inn. And their was private parking at the Inn and only a few blocks walking to most activities and restaurants.

We were booked for the Zinfandel room, I had told Susan that we were celebrating my husband's birthday and at check-in she upgraded us to the Champagne Suite. Great locations right in town, would definitely return.

My husband had never been to Newport, so I booked 3 nights here for our anniversary celebration during Memorial Day weekend. I talked to Diane over the phone upon making the reservation and she was very friendly and accommodating. I was greeted by Susan upon check-in at the Blue Jewel, who took the time to show me a visitor's map... More

Enjoyed the stay. Love the room and bath. Location was perfect especially liked having parking. I stayed in "Champagne" room and loved the design of room and large bed. Also ice in bags was great. Breakfast good but too sweet. (french Toast no egg with candied bacon)

Our room was A+ clean. Very safe as you need a key to get into the b & b and another to get into your room. FULL breakfast, not just bread and cereal. Two minute walk to town and free on site parking which is big in Newport during the summer months. We will be staying here again.
