I'm still trying to figure out how that 1 negative review could have possibly happenEd. the owner and proprietor is a lovely and wonderful woman. my stay with short but it was excellent. the house is charming and classy just like its owner. breakfast was excellent and as bed and breakfast go, I have nothing but positive things to say!! safe to say I will certainly be back when I visit my son at URI

Ill start by saying i never write negative reviews for anything. for the most part, i give people the benefit of the doubt. but this situation was special. I was booking two nights at their top room for my fiancé and I the night of my wedding in Warwick, ri. Obviously weddings are a lot of planning. I was trying to determine the logistics of gaining entrance into their home after our reception at probably midnight or even later. The woman on the phone sounded very stuck up and snooty as it was, but at the end of our conversation, when she thought she had hung up the phone, she let her true feelings show.

"Does he expect me to stay on the phone with him for 3 or 4 hours" she remarked to a coworker I assume.

I immediately called back to cancel the reservation I had just made. I let her know that I had over heard her remarks and that it was unacceptable behaivor. I also let her know that I would be writing this review.

The purpose of this review is simple. I want people to get a bit of insight into how these folks see view their house guests. I was nothing mor than a nagging customer on the phone with her... I would hate to see her reaction if you we're staying there and needed an extra towel or new sheets.

There are plenty of places out there. Stay away from this place as customer service is obviously not viewed as important.

Stayed here for five days for a reunion.....and had an excellent time. Barbara (even with her quirks) was friendly, outgoing, and gave an excellent breakfast. The house is wonderful and quiet and her dogs are cute and nice. I would recommend this B & B for everyone.

My husband and I stayed at The King's Rose almost a year ago with our Standard Poodle and really enjoyed our stay very much. I meant to write a review shortly after our stay, but "life got in the way" and it took me till now to get to it. However, I think that helps to make the point to let folks who rely on reviews know that this place was worth posting a review, even a year late! Barbara was a great, a friendly and very accommodating innkeeper. The grounds at the Inn are beautiful and promote relaxation. The house and rooms were immaculate and we thoroughly enjoyed the breakfast Barbara cooked for us in the morning. We would definitely stay there again without question. Thank you, Barbara.

While on a visit to my daughter, who is a student at URI, I called around on a Sunday afternoon to find a place to stay. Barbara, the innkeeper, asked if I'd mind giving her 20 minutes to make up a room, which sounded very reasonable. I found the keys to my room waiting when I arrived. Barbara came upstairs with me at my request to show me around and offered me a glass of wine. I had room #3 which was cozy, with a very soft bed that I thoroughly enjoyed. The weather was cool, so A/C was not needed. In the morning, the two other guests and I wanted to meet the household dogs, so they were allowed into the dining room and were well-mannered Corgis. It was a nice homelike touch for me. Breakfast, cooked to order, was pancakes, with eggs, oatmeal and French toast also offered. After stepping out for an hour, I returned at 11:30 AM, and asked if Barbara would consider letting me stay another hour for a nap before driving home. She said, very graciously, "Please take your time, no one else is using the room later." I really appreciated this, as I certainly would have understood if she wanted to keep to the prearranged checkout, and stayed longer for a much-needed rest. We had a very pleasant chat, having shared career interests. I would gladly recommend this inn to my friends, and of special note is that cats can be accommodated, not always an easy thing to arrange. My only negative is that there aren't any rooms on the first floor, which I would prefer, having some difficulty with stairs, but the many positives and very reasonable price more than made up for that.

It looked a bit creepy when we pulled to the parking lot at 10 PM, my husband even mentioned that's how most of American horror movies begin :-) , but we were pleasantly surprised. Old fashion decor, beautiful garden, very friendly owner. Definitely will stay there again if we happen to be in the area. A bit too hot downstairs, there is no AC on the first floor, but rooms upstairs are fine.

Room Tip: took room 1 and 2 - both great. #1 has 2 rooms. Clean, both have some nice books for you to read.

We stayed 5 nights and 2 nights as our daughter is an International Exchange student at URI. Having read reviews of 2008 I don't know why they were so hostile. We found Barbara to be chatty and accessable at all times (They must have missed seeing the doorbell on her door) And breakfast was a treat and always prompt, at the time we wanted it and certainly filling, setting us up for the day. She was soooo accomodating with our check in times (midnight the 1st time) We have rated her as excellent as it was such a clean and comfortable B&B (no bad aromas at all). You wouldn't realise it but she does everything herself, so we were very impressed with everything. The corgis were so friendly and adoring and not noisy at all. Our only slight problem was a squeaky bed so you know what wasn't on the menu! (be warned if you're in room No. 2)
