“What fun!”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

My husband and I spent a very enjoyable weekend here at the end of September. From the great breakfasts to the terrific location, the Belle View Inn is our "go to " place to stay in Newport. Lorna and Tony are terrifc innkeepers, and Emily is very gracious and welcoming at breakfast. The breakfasts include a freshly baked treat from a local bakery that you pick out the day before. There are always hard boiled eggs as well as fresh fruit to pick from as well. The whole place is very welcoming. We stayed in the Tennis Hall of Fame Suite which was a very relaxing place to plan the rest of our vacation

This is the only place we'd stay in Newport! We would highly recommend it for visitors
. The Cliff Walk is one of the many places we enjoyed visiting this time.

We look forward to our next visit.

The Belle View Inn has become our favorite place to stay in Newport. We stayed in the Tennis Hall of Fame Suite on the second floor. It was very spacious and perfectly clean. Lorna was incredible, she was nice enough to call us when she wasn't going to be there to welcome us. She left our keys and a heartfelt note in the mailbox for us. Upon our return from shopping we ran into Lorna when she was about to bake homemade chocolate chip cookies! She asked us which breakfast pastry we would prefer from the local bakery.

(After that, we went for a walk on the beach and became engaged! So this place definitely holds a special place in our lives.)

The inn is a short walk to plenty of shops, restaurants, and waterfronts. We walked (about 15 min) to TSK (thames street kitchen), a wonderful local farm to table restaurant. Then we had drinks at Zelda's on Thames Street.

The next morning we were greeted by Emily, who is pleasant and friendly. She set up our pastries at a table for two by the window. She warmed up my blueberry scone and made fresh fruit cups. What a perfect morning to follow a wonderful life event!

This place really cares about the little details, which makes it so comfortable and welcoming. There are postcards in the lobby with stamps already provided. (We wrote one to my fiance's grandfather to announce our engagement from Newport!) The bed was comfortable in addition to the couch in the sitting area. There were robes provided as well as plenty of towels. There were small water bottles in the refrigerator, and there was also a coffeepot in the room. There are always cookies, tea, coffee and water available in the lobby. The room and the whole inn is very clean. We would absolutely stay here again and highly recommend it!

My husband and i had an awesome time in Newport and especially at the Belle View Inn! The owners were super friendly and accommodating and when we needed suggestions as to where to eat or relax they knew exactly where we should go! Also, the location of the Inn was perfect for walking to different places and not too far away from other fun activities such as beaches or the cliff walk! Great time!

What a great way to end our 10 day adventure on the east coast! BEAUTIFUL spacious rooms, great location, knowledgeable innkeeper (thank you Lorna) nice breakfast, reasonably priced, and homemade chocolate chip cookies as well! Our only regret was that we were only able to stay one night....longer next time for sure! Roger and Jennie

this was our 4th stay with Lorna and Emily,and it just keeps getting better! The location is perfect for us, and the latest great addition to a perfect vacation was bathrobes in the rooms. Comfy and cozy!! We love the Belle View and will keep coming back each year. Attention is paid to every detail, and it feels like home.

My boyfriend and I spent the weekend in Newport at this great B&B. I didn't know much about Newport's lay out or the location of this inn when I booked our stay but it turned out perfectly! We were midway between the beach and downtown and were able to walk everywhere. We were a few blocks from the hustle and bustle of downtown where we went each night for dinner, close to Bellevue Avenue and the mansions, and a few blocks from First Beach and the Cliff Walk. We found this to be the best part of the stay. On top of that the breakfast host was extremely helpful and friendly. Our room was nice and clean, and very reasonable for the price we paid. We were both very happy with this inn and would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a reasonable but warm and inviting, inn in Newport.
