“Most enjoyable place to stay in Newport”
Reviewed August 30, 2013

I have stayed at the Admiral Fitzroy Inn on two occasions. It is a great place to stay. The location is perfect, the staff is very friendly, and the rooms are beautiful and clean. We really enjoyed the breakfast also. I will be staying there again!!

I can not say enough about the excellent service we had at the Admiral Fitzroy. It is located in an ideal location, making it easy to walk around and be able to just park the car and leave it. The rooms were great. I was there for a wedding and my family had rented five of the rooms and they were all wonderful! Angela and the entire staff are amazing! I highly recommend staying at the Admiral Fitzroy when you visit Newport.

While visiting Newport, my husband and I opted for this B&B in downtown Newport where all the action is. We arrived rather early, well before our check-in, and although our room wasn't ready, they set us up with a parking pass and let us have access to the common areas. For those that haven't visited Newport, let me tell you that parking there can be rather difficult, with the roads tiny and the slope intense, as well as the swarms of people you are trying to dodge, so having a private parking lot in the back of the B&B was a HUGE plus for us.

When we did check in later on that day, we got a free upgrade due to availability. The room was lovely, and rather large. It's an old vintage building, so the walls are thin, but you come to expect that in RI, this is the norm.

We utilized their common area of the rooftop sitting area, which was a wonderful view of the all the wharfs. We brought up a bottle of wine we supplied, the wine glasses they supply, and watched the sailboats go in and out of the harbor for a while. Very relaxing.

On our way out for the night, we grabbed a freshly made warm cookie displayed on the countertop. The B&B is right on Thames street, so it's a short walk to all the amazing pier restaurants and shops. Truly a great location.

Breakfast was good. Fresh fruit, pastries, breads, yogurt, etc... and a good selection of juices. It's a smaller spread, so I don't think you'll find omelets or waffles, but I enjoyed the simplicity of having a light healthy breakfast before heading out for a day of lobster rolls and crab cakes.

I recommend this to anyone who visits Newport. We will be back!

We stayed here for a night. The place and people at the hotel are very warm and friendly. Also has a cute little dining area where they serve free breakfast in the morning.

Definitely recommend it and is a great value for money.

Spent several nights here on my first (hubby's second) visit to the area. The location is wonderful for walking town and the staff was very helpful. We also loved our room. Overall we got more than we expected at this lovely inn and would stay again ourselves and recommend it to friends.

Note: We went to the inn on a promotional weekend and the extras provided (wine, chocolate and flowers) were very nice.

Room Tip: our room was on the second floor and did have an unexpected water view although inn is not on/at th...

We have stayed at another inn in Newport which was a disappointment, but we had a good experience at the Admiral Fitzroy. The room was very clean, but did need some updating. The staff was very pleasant and very accommodating. We liked the roof deck. It was very relaxing. The location was perfect. Free parking at the Inn & you could walk in town. The breakfast was more than adequate and filled my husband who loves to eat. We got a special the month we went which was very reasonable. We would definitely stay at the Admiral Fitzroy again.

As our first time staying at a B&B, we were impressed! The room was very clean and larger than we expected. It had a modern feel for being such an old building. The location close to downtown is a huge plus! Could not have asked for a better stay for the price!
