The hotel is on the main street and perfectly placed to walk to any of the shops,restaurants,the markets or the beach. I stayed in a studio spa room. It was small but perfectly OK for 1 person.
I think it would have been a squeeze for 2 people. Not much floor space and nowhere really if you had 2 bags. The shower was located above the spa bath. The bath was high off the ground and difficult to get into. No hand rails to grab or anything.
I also found it a little awkward that there was no chair in the room. No where to sit except on the bed. I brought in one of the chairs from the balcony but there was no room for it really. A folding chair would have been really handy. The room was clean and tidy and the bed very comfy. There is also no lift at the hotel so the stairs could be an issue for some guests.The staff are lovely and very helpful. The Newport was very good value and I would stay again. I would pay more for a larger room if my husband was with me.
