“Impeccable!”
Reviewed 9 August 2011

Our entire experience at Villa One Twenty was FIVE-STAR! The owner, Corinna, happily welcomed us, gave us a tour of the inn that she impeccably renovated, and thoughtfully loaned us a large, much-needed umbrella. Once back at Villa 120, we enjoyed the spacious, beautifully appointed and perfectly cleaned room. In the morning, Corinna greeted us, served us coffee on the veranda and kindly lingered (on her day off) to chat with us, especially about the history of the inn. The breakfast was a generous array of fruit, yogurt, cheese, homemade banana-almond bread and granola, croissants, jams, cereal and sausage. Although we were celebrating our wedding anniversary, Villa 120 is ideal for wedding parties: large, comfortably appointed rooms downstairs for socializing; a large table for dining as a group; a second-floor central open area for professional hair and make-up; a garden and spacious indoor rooms for a ceremony and/or reception; and the honeymoon suite. My husband, Ted, and I highly recommend Villa One Twenty!

My wife and I were part of a wedding party that rented out Villa One Twenty for a long weekend. The house is decorated each room in simple, sophistocated, and modern decor. The breakfasts were amazing, there was a ton of selection, and were very filling.

The owner, Corinna, runs the house with her two lovely daughters. They were all very kind and helpful, Corinna even worked the breakfasts to make sure that my gulten intolerant wife could enjoy everything, even gluten free muffins.

I would definetly recommend this B&B to anyone looking for a place in Newport.

Room Tip: I would recommend the Yellow room or the Black & white Room on the second floor

Needing a break from the hustle and bustle of our everyday lives, my husband and I decided that a little 3 day getaway was in order. In a nutshell, we were looking for a romantic, secluded retreat that would allow us to wine, dine and most importantly relax in a beautiful setting. A few of my friends, who had coincidentally just returned from a couples sailing trip, kept raving about this exquisite mansion turned Bed & Breakfast in Newport, Rhode Island. Knowing that I tend to be a little "particular" when it comes to restaurants and hotels (ok fine, I'm really picky) they assured me that Villa One Twenty would not disappoint... and it didn't.

As we drove up to the property, a crisp white, Italianate style mansion stood on a gentle slope amongst perfectly manicured grounds. Black wicker armchairs and sofas with damask pillows created two oh-so-cozy lounging areas on the massive front porch. I personally think that first impressions are VERY telling and Villa One Twenty had me at hello.

In the front garden, plush pine trees and spiraled hedges lead the way to a water fountain surrounded by garden benches... this later became our preferred spot to enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning and glass(es) of wine at night.

When we stepped inside the Villa, which was built in 1853 as a summer retreat for New York's elite, we quickly noticed that the true beauty of the manor lay within its authentic architectural features. Large windows clad with black shutters, 18 foot ceilings, crystal chandeliers, a charmingly creaky spiraled staircase, antique fireplaces, wainscoting and two-toned mahogany flooring were just a few of the villa's features that acted as constant reminders of the historical context.

Amidst the old world charm, an eclectic sampling of the owner's favorite decorative items sat comfortably within the traditional setting. Corinna Britten (the proprietor) has done a fabulous job of updating the manor while respecting its ancient elegance. Considering that Villa One Twenty is a hidden gem, I found it quite fitting that Corinna named each of the rooms after precious stones. All the accommodations included a private bathroom with pedestal sink, fireplace, large windows and a four-poster bed.

During my entire stay in this villa, the event planner in me kept thinking how perfect this mansion would be for an intimate wedding. People of the world: If you're planning a wedding or know anyone who is, this venue is the best kept secret in Rhode Island!!! With its multiple sitting rooms, luscious grounds and exuberant elegance, this Villa screams out wedding venue. Oh and if you get married there, please invite me. Thanks ;)

I believe that a great thing is only made better when you have someone to share it with... which makes me very fortunate for two reasons - not only did I get to experience an idyllic trip at Villa One Twenty with my hubby but now I also have the great pleasure of sharing this gem with all of you. And who knows, perhaps you will pay it forward as well!

We recently had the pleasure of staying at the Villa One Twenty B&B in Middletown RI. The location is set back away from the road and provides for a quiet and private retreat. Upon arrival, we were greeted with a very friendly staff and shown to our room. The room was very spacious, super clean and well designed. We were able to get some peaceful rest each night so that we were refreshed and charged to hit the town and enjoy our daily activities, which were only minutes away – great location! The food was excellent and the attention to detail was quite impeccable. Overall we had an amazing stay at Villa One Twenty and would highly recommend this B&B to all of our family and friends!

Room Tip: We stayed in the room on the upper floor.

This was our first visit to Newport and Villa One Twenty helped to make the whole experience unforgettable. The location, just a few minutes from downtown Newport, is quiet and peaceful set in delightful gardens. Our flight was delayed so we arrived late but were warmly welcomed by Corinna. We stayed 5 nights and enjoyed leisurely breakfasts in the sun filled breakfast room. Our bedroom was very spacious and well appointed. The interior of Villa Twenty One has been very sensitively and carefully renovated. The contemporary touches enhance the historical property. No doubt about where we would stay the next time!

We visit Newport often and usually stay in hotels on Thames Street. This experience will change our approach to visiting Newport. Villa One Twenty is close enough to access shops and restaurants in minutes but removes you from the noise and congestion of the wharf area. You are able to enjoy a bit of the luxury that this city of mansions radiates. The beautiful front garden looks perfect for a wedding or a croquet match. Located on a quiet side street is a bonus in this bustling town and makes the front porch a retreat for the guest. The first floor has a choice of ecletic and inviting rooms for guests to find a relaxing corner. Breakfast is served in a lovely dining room with garden vistas and service that makes a guest feel pampered. Bedrooms are large and comfortable. The wonderful architectural detail you expect in a historic Newport home continues in these rooms. Corinna Britton, the proprietor, has put her London stamp on this hotel from greeting guests with champagne to designing the rooms in this elegant retreat.
