Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania
Reviewed 11 August 2016

We stayed at the end of June for the Newport Jazz festival. The owners were fantastic with respect to early arrivals and late departures and the continental breakfast is hearty!! The location is excellent and convenient to everything and the fact that they have on site parking is a plus. Overall - made for a perfect long weekend!

We spent two nights here in July at peak season and we felt that the price was outrageous for the quality (over 300 dollars a night). In general, the inn needed a renovation. Furniture was old and dingy. Bathroom was not very clean which is a major sticking point for me. Still we stuck it out and it was fine....

Thank you for your review. I think if you compare prices of area inns during peak season, you will find that the Admiral Fitzroy is a great deal. Our decor has been selected to mind and mirror the historical significance of the property and can often feel more quaint, modest and homey than fashionable or up-to-date. We are glad to...

Came to town for the Jazz Festival weekend. The Admiral Fitzroy was charming, convenient, and a good value compared to other resorts in the area that weekend. Rooms were clean and very nice, the breakfast was delicious and free onsite parking was great. Would definitely recommend.

The Admiral Fitzroy is a great place to stay for all of Newport's summer music festivals, especially because it is within walking distance to the water taxis to Fort Adams. Our delicious breakfast and free on-site parking are added bonuses! Please do recommend us to your friends and family and we'll see you next year for the festival.

This place is all you need to enjoy your vacation in Newport. Friendly staff, great location, clean rooms. Reasonably priced B&B that feels more like a hotel right in downtown. Simple but filling continental breakfast. Would definitely recommend to friends and family. If you want peace and quiet realize this hotel is right in the heart of downtown. However we...

Honestly when I read this review I thought to myself that had I been a guest to the Admiral Fitzroy Inn in a busy summer season, this is exactly the way I would have reviewed my stay. It is honest and to the point! This is refreshing and I thank you!

This is a quaint inn in a great location, but I agree it could use some updating and sprucing up. The decor in our room was shabby (the TV/fridge armoire appears homemade) and the deck upstairs looks shabby and in need of repair. That said, we loved sitting out there and watching the sunset! And love the warm cookies at...

We do appreciate your frank feedback. In response to your comment that the Inn needs sprucing up I would like to state that this is an on-going process and we try to do a little more each year. The armoires in each room are, indeed, handmade by the original owners as well as the faux finish and hand painting in...

The rooms are quite nice and the staff is fantastic, although the carpet in the room we were in seemed to be worn and dated. The bathroom was updated and nice. They have a rooftop deck which is great to hang out on, however they lock it down at 9:pm; I never asked why, but it would be nice if...

We appreciate hearing both the positive and the negative as we are always trying to improve. We have replaced 16 of 18 carpets over the past few years: the last two are slated for 2017 and then we will start the process all over again. I am sorry you were in one of the two rooms that had an older...

Great location. Great service. Comfortable bed. Excellent free breakfast. The real hidden secret is the rooftop. My wife and I sat on the rooftop patio with a bottle of wine at sunset. It was one of the highlights of the trip. The one drawback was it was a cool night and we had the windows open all night. The hotel...

Can't beat the location. You can walk everywhere from the B&B - shops, restaurants, beach, cliff walk, mansions, Broadway - everything. But the inn was very nice too - large rooms, very clean and nicely appointed. People were super friendly and helpful. Breakfast was European style, which we always love. The rooftop was a great spot to sit outside, have...
