Our group of two adults and two children stayed at the Wellington as guests of a family friend who has a timeshare there. It is a great location on the harbor and short walk to shopping and the restaurants on Thames. The unit was very clean and had everything we needed, even a working fireplace. A small terrace overlooking the...

This is our third year of spending a week at the Wellington. The staff is friendly and helpful, the landscaping and grounds are immaculate, the pool and fitness room and locker rooms are clean and well-maintained. We love this little piece of heaven and enjoy drinking our cup of coffee on the deck every morning facing the ocean. We also...

My husband and I have been owners at this resort for about 7 years now, and we love to go every year. I haven't exchanged it once as I enjoy Newport and the resort is great. I have to say that the resort has needed a little updating in the past, but it's getting done. All units have new carpets...

I have to disagree with the negative reviews on the friendliness of the staff and the units. I had the good fortune to visit this location many years ago and was luckily to get a week there again in Feb. It was during a blizzard (NE nor'easter!) and the work the staff (etc,) did to clean up the snow and...

We have stayed at the Wellington 3 years in a row in November. The property is nice and time share units are pretty good. In the past we have been in building 5 which has a much better view and a better layout of the unit. There is a fire place in the unit. They used to supply duraflame log,...

My husband and I stay at the Wellington every year. Often we have company stay overnight for a couple of nights. The staff is very helpful and friendly, the 2 bedroom apartment is huge and spotless and even includes a clothes washer and dryer. The location of the Wellington is wonderful, within walking distance to everything (we're walkers), and yet...

I chose the Wellington based on reviews on TA and feel that we made a great choice. We had a 2 bedroom 2 bath in Bldg 5 on the first floor and had a great view of the harbor and the Newport/Pell Bridge. Our unit had recently been painted and had new carpeting. Easy access to both the indoor and...

We stayed at the Wellington for the weekend to celebrate a friend's upcoming nuptials. We honestly had an amazing time there. We had a suite, which was HUGE and perfect to accommodate our group for the weekend. The view from our living room balcony was amazing, and we woke up each morning to different boats/cruise ships in the harbor. We...

Before you book your stay at the Wellington it is important to realize this is NOT a hotel. They are efficiency apartments. You are responsible for everything. Do not expect to find shampoo or even a cup of coffee anywhere unless you bring your own. The apartment is well appointed if you know what to expect before you get there....

Everything about this property screemed update me - to the CRT TVs, 80's wall paper, bed spreads, kitchen, bathrooms, everything. See pics. What saves the property is its water front location, location in Newport, and the large spacious rooms. Otherwise I would have rated the place poor. You would think that for $400 a night, each room would be updated....
