“Wonderful experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 30, 2013

Just spent Thanksgiving weekend with good friends here.What a lovely experience. Enjoyed visiting with them in the cozy day rooms and were delighted by the delicious and creative treats during the afternoon tea and breakfast. The rooms were beautifully appointed with extremely comfortable beds. The location couldn't be better. Walking distance to many great restaurants and shops. Our hosts were gracious and personally looked to our every need. Would go back in an instant.

We've stayed at the Malbone House a number of times. The first was for our anniversary, but we've found excuses to stay many times since. The inn is beautiful and in a great location. The detail is amazing and a peek into historical Newport. The breakfast and afternoon tea provided are very, very good. If you're looking for an elegant place to get away for a while this is it!

Room Tip: The garden rooms off season are a good value!

My husband and I stayed here for a weekend in October and loved the Inn! It's in a great location and the rooms are lovely. The breakfasts and afternoon teas are amazing and not to be missed. As the owner of a travel agency I would not hesitate to send my clients to this lovely inn!

Room Tip: Rooms facing the courtyard tend to be quiet.

My husband & I have stayed at Malbone House about 5 times around Thanksgiving. Will is a most gracious host; Janet, Suzanne and all the other ladies make sure that all guests are well taken care of. Breakfast and afternoon tea are absolutely scrumptious. The rooms are beautifully furnished and have comfortable beds and plush linens. All I can say is "relax and enjoy the ultimate treat!"

It's a costly place to stay but it will perfect your New England experience. The afternoon high tea has a good selection of pastries and the deco of the property is warm and classy. Great location too.

I spent two nights and it was two of the most relaxing and comfortable nights I've ever spent away from home. The Inn Keepers and staff were friendly and went above and beyond to insure everything was perfect for their guests. Afternoon tea was delicious as was breakfast. I would highly recommend the Francis Malbone House and hope to some day be able to go back to Newport and stay there again!

We stayed one night at the Inn off season. From check in to check out, everything was great. The rooms were very clean, quiet. The architecture inside the Inn is beautiful and there is so much history there. The Inn conveniently located near everything in Newport. The staff was very nice and the food was great. We will definitely stay here again.
