“great b & b”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2012

Hydrangea House is a beautiful b&b. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The rooms were decorated great and very well appointed. Location is excellent with a private off-street parking lot. Would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room not over the kitchen, as they tend to be much warmer than the rest of the house.

My partner took me for a surprise get-away for my 50th birthday. It was the most perfect weekend. We had a beautiful suite with a 2 person tub, steam shower, fireplace and very comfortable bed. The breakfast was divine - unbelieveably delicious - I still cannot stop thinking about it! Dennis and Grant are incredibly hospitible and very helpful. The location could not be better - you can walk almost everywhere. We cannot wait to go back.

My husband & I stayed at Hydrangea House Inn for our anniversary. We selected the Carrie in Paris suite. With a spa tub, gas fireplace and two person shower, it is perfect for a romantic weekend. The breakfasts were delicious and unique. The inn is located within walking distance to the waterfront, which was convenient. This is a great choice, when staying in Newport.

My husband and I enjoyed a one week vacation in Newport, RI, staying at Hydrangea House Inn. We enjoyed wonderful gourmet breakfasts each day! The Garden Suite was beautiful and spacious and had a private entrance. The innkeepers, Grant and Dennis, were very gracious and hospitable, offering suggestions on what to see and do, where to dine, etc. I highly recommend this Inn. You will not be disappointed!

I stayed 2 nights at Hydrangea House and it was wonderful.
The house has been furnished beautifully and has some wonderful touches and the hosts produce a magnificent breakfast served in the elegant sinning room.
I was very fortunate to have the largest room in the house which had a delightful four post bed and this is the room to get if you can.
Hydrangea House has wo awards and it is easy to see why.
When staying in beautiful Newport Hydrangea House is a very good option as it is very centrally located.
I can't speak highly enough of a first class B& B

We celebrated my huband Tom's Birthday in Newport. The Hydrangea House was a perfect place to choose to stay. Grant and Dennis were warm and thoughtful hosts. Since the Inn was not full during the week we were there, they surprised us by upgrading our room to the Carrie suite! We had cold rainy weather when we visiting and it was wonderful to return to such a beautiful room with a warm fireplace and heated towels after touring the spectactular mansions. The bottled water in the room and homemade cookies at night were really nice touches and appreciated by us. We took the train to Kingston RI and a car service to the inn. The location was ideal since you could walk to the mansions and to the shops and restaurants.( There are cabs and trolleys if you do not like to walk)Breakfast was served at 9:00 am but since we were leaving early to catch the train back to Delaware, Grant and Dennis served us a gourmet breakfast at 7:00am. We would highly recommend the Hydrangea House to others and hope to return.

We stayed at the Hydrangea House over the Labor Day weekend with two other couples. It was a perfect location with outstanding services and the breakfasts were wonderful. The owners were so nice and shared the recipes of some of our favorite items offered for breakfast. They also offer a happy hour with wine that we never missed!

Room Tip: The B&B offers many rooms at different price levels. We stayed in the Little Red Veranda room wh...
