Black Duck Inn
Ranked #22 of 95 Newport B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 29, 2011

Our room was up to date, wiFi included and well atired and very clean. The breakfast was exceptional with great choices and very friendly staff. Just a short walk to the waterfront and all the stores and clubs such as the Speak Easy where we had a great 'Meet and Greet' party for all our wedding guests. Their service and rates were worth every penny (dollar) and we'd be glad to return again.
Other than the $12.00 parking fee, the Moorings was also a very enjoyable place for dinner. No recession here !!!! Excellent food and the best clam chowder available.

The room wasn't too big but big enough. The bathroom was nice and modern. The lounge is very nice with city scheme furniture. My husband loved the cookies they put out. I have celiac disease and they were able to make me delicious gluten free pancakes with fresh blueberries. It was fun but not noisy (lots of young couples stayed there). Ideal location!!!! convenient parking in the back.
Let them know ahead of time if you need gluten free breakfast... or any other allergies.

Our girls' weekends are very important to us. For years we have stayed in Newport in different places, own a timeshare, and have made many friends there. Once we stayed at the Black Duck Inn, we knew we'd never stay anywhere else. The rooms and bathrooms are spotless. The beds are very comfortable and the breakfasts are delicious.
I recommend highly the Inn (and the sister properties). Once you stay, you will become a return guest. VERY FRIENDLY STAFF!

This is hands-down the best B&B in NPT. Lovely, clean, comfortable rooms; park and walk to everywhere in downtown newport; affordable yet first-rate. Best part of the whole place is the inn-keeper Jeannie, who goes above and beyond to make sure your stay is the best ever. This is my 3d time there and I'm planning on staying there when I return.

I chose this B&B based on the modern photos on the web site. I knew the inn had been recently renovated, so I expected it to be very clean and updated. We stayed in the Chardonnay room. I had read that the rooms were very "cozy" so I was not surprised at the very small size. What did surprise me...the disgusting old pink carpet and the badly outdated bathroom. The tile in the bathroom was very old, stained, and cracked. The sink was faux marble and stained by old cigarettes. The shower was a plastic stall with shower curtain. There are some positives about staying here which include the fantastic location and the breakfast. The breakfast consisted of great blueberry muffins, yogurt, cereals, bagels, orange juice, and fruit. We were also offered hotcakes and sausage made to order which were very good. I think the inn would be more appropriately priced at $110 a night. We also had a very peaceful night with the window open for fresh air. Beware if visiting in the summer since the inn does not have A/C. Queen size bed was nice, but pillows hard as rocks.

Booked this place pretty last minute after deciding to get away for Labor Day. Booked the room no problem. When we checked in and went to the room, it was kinda stuffy, although it wasn't too hot out. I called the front desk, and indicated it was pretty hot and was there anything they could do.. WELL THEY DID!! They upgraded us for FREE to the Champagne Suite without even a word. The room was absolutely great, the staff extremely friendly, and you can't be any closer to the action. Its only like 50ft to Thames Street, although even at night it was pretty quiet at the room.

I WOULD DEFINATELY STAY AGAIN!! THANKS FOR EVERYTHING CHRIS~

Our first visit to Newport, we chose the Black Duck Inn after seeing room pictures on the website. It has two sister properties on the same street. Our room was spacious, well apportioned and very comfortable. The Inn has had recent renovations and other rooms looked very nice also. The proximity to Bannister's Wharf, America's Cup Blvd, Bellevue and lower Thames made the location almost ideal. There is some low level bass noise from a bar about a block away, but quiets after midnight. Breakfast was fully home cooked, and the pastries were wonderful. Everyone on the staff was exceptionally helpful and informative which made our visit quite pleasant. Newport is a very walkable city, and this location provided easy access to dining, mansions, sigtseeing - pretty much everything one would want to do here.
