It was a great location and had all the amenities. I definitely would go for the upgraded rooms, the swan room wall paper was a bit dizzying and I think took away from the experience. We were there two nights and had a great experience overall. The accessibility of cliff walk and the beaches and the parking were all key to our stay. The house itself is beautiful and the furniture is comfortable. Wine hour was a cute and the breakfast was delicious.

Property was very nice. Covid put a damper on the community feel of an inn. I would suggest a better, more "typical" foods for breakfast items -- croissants, danish, etc. We stayed in the Victorian Room (first floor). The room was really very beautiful. Bed was very comfortable (a biggie for me). Bathroom was lovely. Only complaint is that the room is noisy. Every staff conversation in the kitchen and their communicating loudly between rooms and at concierge desk, we heard every single word. Typical, to be expected, guest noise. We would stay again, but request a different room. They have a great outdoor fire pit -- weather was too damp to enjoy it, but it looked very inviting.

charming, great staff, felt very welcomed. Our room was perfect, beautiful fireplace, shower anf clawfoot tub. Food preperation was excellent. Enjoyed tea and wine tasting. Cant wait to go back.

Beautiful restoration, amazing staff. We had such a relaxing time.

Hi, Reading that our mansion’s comfortable touches brought an aura of calm to your time in Newport is wonderful! Please accept our apologies for the sound that seeped into your suite. We’d recommend exploring the accommodations in our Cottage Suites building which should afford additional insulation from activity during your next visit. Come see us in the spring or summer to enjoy an all-new experience!
