Warm, inviting, de-stressing

Lovely place. Fantastic crew. Amazing breakfast. Folks there really took the edge off after a long ride up from NYC. Super clean, brand-new kitchen. Little things made the stay lovely. I would definitely return. Thanks Adele Turner! ...Sahil

Not worth the price

Avoid this Inn. Terrible food, poor service, old property. They changed hands recently and it shows.

In the short time that we’ve owned the inn, we felt we were making significant improvements, with our focus on quality standards and performance. Our staff takes great pride in their attention to our guests, and is always looking for ways to improve the service. We welcome the opportunity to serve you once again on a return visit to Newport.
