Back once again to celebrate our Bdays, and once again after several previous stays, not dissapointed! Special thanks to Will and his amazing ladies there for going above and beyond for us. We thoroughly enjoyed our Bday present! No detail overlooked , beautifully decorated for the holidays, roaring fireplaces, bountiful breakfasts, centrally located to wonderful restaurants and unique boutiques, complimentary off street parking, there is no better gift than a Francis Malbone stay. This month, exceptional value on holiday gift certificates for a future stay, should be on everyones gift list! Love this place and its people, to us the perfect gift. See you all again very soon, Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays Francis Malbone House...........

Room Tip: Take a look at website photos and descriptions, very detailed to help you select, look for the features that will help make your stay more enjoyable, also front desk very helpful in room selection if you relay to them your individual needs, talk to them,every question answered this is how we came to stay here Customer Service and Personality from front desk outstanding!

The b&b is a beautiful structure but I found my standard queen room small and the bathroom a challenge to move around. So very tiny and with just a shower. My husband and I had to take turns getting in and out. Also my bed, which was lovely to look at (very tall and inviting) had a terrible mattress. It was very bouncy and the bed creaked at every move. Did not get a good night rest. Breakfast was a nice fare but not over the top. Breakfast room, however, was lovely with a large fireplace. Hard for me to justify cost against what I actually got. Was left annoyed not relaxed. Did not make use of afternoon tea, which I thought was a nice touch.

Room Tip: Make sure you check if your room has a bathtub. Usually a good sign as to size.

Innkeeper02840, Owner at Francis Malbone House Inn, responded to this reviewResponded November 28, 2012

We appreciate your feedback on your stay at our inn. The Francis Malbone House is a 1760 antique historic inn. Yes, some of our rooms are smaller than others- this is reflected in our rate structure. You reserved one of our Gardenside rooms for your stay which are our smallest (least expensive) rooms.
We worked with the space we had in the 1760 main house to accommodate a private bath within each room. The room you reserved is a quaint room with a fireplace,high ceilings,beautiful mouldings and wide plank floors.Yes, it is a "one person at a time" bathroom.
Please give us another chance- on us! We'll give you a bigger bathroom!!

Once again, a recent visit to Newport and of course a stay at The Francis Malbone House.
Not only the weather was great after a devastating week on Long Island with the Sandy storm but the hospitality and warmth of the people at The Malbone House was as always top notch.
With friendly greetings from everyone and personal care to make sure it was as comfortable as possible, we couldn't ask for anything better. This is one place I highly reccomend for anyone who wants to feel like a family type enviroment. I will be returning soon and when I do, it will always be the Great Francis Malbone Bed and Breakfast House which there is no other to compare. Thank you all there and it was a most fantastic visit.
