The staff was excellent ! Best part was location to all of the downtown Newport seaport area! Historic old building, yet all the modern conveniences needed. Rooms were cozy and comfortable. Afternoon tea was great with an assortment of treats and a warm fire in the fireplace to enjoy them. Breakfast had some unique offering including table service items.

Went to the Season 4 Premier of Downton Abbey at the Jane Pickens Theater & Event Center and decided to stay at the Malbone with my “Downton Fan Club”. What a treat! It was like stepping back in time. The five of us arrived on a cold, rainy day and Janet greeted us like we were old friends. Taking us on a tour of the Inn, answering all our questions and showing us to our rooms. It was such a grand experience, from the lovely afternoon tea to the fabulous morning breakfast. It was our first time here and it certainly will not be our last.

Enjoyed the queen size bed with fireplace in the newer addition to the bed and breakfast. Purchase an additional log for the night. Afternoon tea had chocolate cheesecake, a variety of cookies, as well as gourmet cheese and crackers. My partner loved the vegetarian omelette in the morning. The freshly baked pastries were wonderful. Excellent service with a smile.

Room Tip: C9 Newport Room has a view of the parking lot, but I enjoyed the separate entrance. The double Jacu...

We just got back from a two night stay at the Francis Malbone house. Everything from the beautifully decorated rooms to the delicious breakfasts and afternoon teas to the kind and knowledgeable staff, it all made our stay so wonderful! I am already planning my next visit.

Fabulous location, park in the inn's lot and walk everywhere. This is our second time visiting just before the New Year holiday. Stayed in the same beautiful room. The afternoon tea is great upon arrival. My husband especially likes all the homemade sweets! The staff is very friendly, helpful and accommodating. Breakfast is my favorite (next to the room with fireplace and jacuzzi tub for two)!!! Regular prices are high, but you can catch some great specials that are well worth it!

We've been visiting the Malbone for more than 10 years and it has become a staple of our get away plans. Quiet, comfortable, enveloping, and homey are just some of the adjectives that would describe the inn. Favorite thing: breakfast in the morning room by the fire. We love it!

Room Tip: They are all lovely!
