“Not So Much...”
Reviewed 9 June 2008

Great location - walking distance to town and restaurants. Owners were lovely and very helpful without being invasive. Downside of our two night stay: we were not told that there was a resident dog, which was fine for us, but may be problematic for those with allergies; NO hot water our first night - I mean NONE, and just a large trickle of water pressure; no space to actually place luggage b/c the room was so small; bed sheets were clean, but stained; no shampoo etc. provided; walls in dire need of fresh paint; "breakfast" was to be ready at 8am, but when we arrived at 8:45am it was not ready. Not recommended for the claustrophobic. Again, location and hosts were great, but the actual room experience was very disappointing. This review is reflective of our one room only, as we did not see any other rooms to make comment. In fairness, we did receive a mid-week off-season price, which redeemed some of the disappointment.

Reviewed 21 August 2007

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 4 nights in August. We booked a smaller room knowing we wouldn't be spending much time inside the room. We were not sure what to expect but were pleasantly surprised! Richard and Donna the Inn owners were very friendly and helpful throughout our stay. They made us feel very welcome and did a great job cleaning the rooms daily. Also- it was a perfect location to walk into town nearby the water. We will 100% be returning to this little gem!

  • Liked — Great location to downtown Newport
