From the outside, the house that this B&B is located in is very cute. There is a circular drive, with ample parking in the back, and you can reach your room from either the front or the back, which is convenient. The location is not great, though. It is not located in the cute downtown that you think of when you think of Newport. It's a little off the beaten pack, a little less than a mile away from the restaurant area of this section of Newport. There were some questionable characters that I spotted walking around.
When we arrived, there was no one around to check us in, but the staff did leave a little note with our room key and instructions, which was very nice and helpful.
The room itself was fine. Small but with a king bed, which was great, and comfortable. There was a gas-operated fireplace in the room, and the windows opened, both which were also very enjoyable. The bathroom was a decent size with a HUGE jacuzzi tub in it. There was not a great attention to detail, however. The towels throughout the bathroom did not match, and there was only one bar (very small) of soap. Also, the staff did not service the room while we were there - because we must have been sleeping when they came to make up the room, they left a plastic bag of towels outside of the room.
The breakfast is very decent. Not HUGE, which I feel they tout, but adequate. Overall it is an acceptable place, but I do not think I would stay here again. Also, the walls are very thin, and I could hear a lot of the conversation from the people out in the hall and even in their room that was adjacent to ours.
