Reviewed 3 May 2012

This was or first visit to Newport, we received the warmest of welcomes and found that Dennis and Grant had thought of absolutely everything. International hospitality at its very best. Hydrangea House is one of the best places we have ever stayed in anywhere in the world.

Room Tip: We had chosen the French Country room but we offerred a free upgrade to Carry in Paris which we acce...

There is no question I would stay here everytime I come to Newport. Location is great, rooms are all delightful, clean and breakfast is to die for! FRESH, HOMEMADE and fills you up for whatever activities you have planned for the day.

There was a mistake with our reservation that could have gone really bad after a 4 hour drive to get there, but no...they were not going to let that happen! They not only accomodated us, they upgraded us to a bigger suite, discounted the normal rate and made the whole situation easy! Thank you!

We stayed here for our first anniversary. We could not have had a better weekend. Dennis and Grant were great hosts. They spent a lot of time reccomending restaurants and sites. The room was so much more then I expected. We had a 2 person hot tub a sitting area a fire place and even a private steam room in the shower. I think the only thing better then the room though were the breakfasts. I am not sure which of Dennis or Grant did the cooking but they should have a restaurant!!

The Hydrangea Inn is romantic, comfortable, inviting & well located B & B.
We have stayed in many wonderful B & B's over the years & this one rates near the top.
The rooms are spacious, comfortable, quiet & nicely decorated. The dining & living room
are beautiful rooms to enjoy the wonderful breakfasts & the afternoon wine & cheese.
The innkeepers are friendly & informative. There recommendations for dinner were superb.
Our 3 nights at the inn made our stay in Newport really relaxing. We are looking forward to returning.

My husband & I recently stayed 3 nights at the Hydrangea House Inn on Bellevue Ave. in Newport RI. It was our 34th wedding anniversary and this inn had everything we wanted for such a special milestone. I found their website by searching the TripAdvisor site and am happy to report that it depicts & describes accurately the accommodations and atmosphere.

We stayed in the Carrie Paris room which was just fantastic. The room has six large windows with ornately colored drapes that let the sunshine through. The inn is meticulously maintained, very clean with interesting art and period pieces all through the house. The queen sized bed was very comfortable, there was a Jacuzzi/spa tub in the room which was great for soaking after long days of walking & touring and a gas fireplace that was very romantic. The rainshower shower head in the walk-in marble tiled shower was a real treat with plenty of room for two!
There was a convivial atmosphere at breakfast and at the wine & cheese reception that’s held each evening. This was the time to talk with other guests in comfortable and relaxed surroundings. It was fun to share itineraries with others, to hear recommendations of places to eat, side tours and out of the way places.
Grant & Dennis, the owners and on-premise innkeepers are exceptional hosts. It is quite obvious they take pride in their Inn that they’ve owned for 24 years. Breakfast is served in such an elegant setting. Each day we were served a specialty of the Inn. The tarragon scrambled eggs served in puff pastry were yum, yum! Ask Grant or Dennis for the secret ingredient! We had raspberry fritters with Vermont maple syrup, homemade breakfast sausage meatballs, raisin scones, jams, teas and special blend coffee - what a great way to start the day. There was a different China place setting each day and for those few hours that weekend I could see myself as part of the Vanderbilt Family during the Gilded Age!

I don’t want to forget to mention Lisa, of the housekeeping staff. She kept our room spotless, supplied fresh bottles of water, clean, fluffy towels, plumped our pillows and completed the day with turn down service at 8pm and left us fresh baked chocolate chip cookies to enjoy.

It seems to me that the Hydrangea House Inn is very deserving of the awards they proudly display. This property is a member of the Select Registry of distinguished Inns of North America, a AAA Diamond Award Recipient and I understand it has been highly ranked by members of TripAdvisor. I highly recommend a visit to this wonderful B & B.

My wife and I had a lovely time at this B&B! Hydrangea House is centrally located right in the middle of Newport, close to the waterfront area and a short walk to some of the mansions on Bellevue Avenue. The Inn Keepers are super friendly and made some of the most amazing breakfasts that we have had at a B&B. Also a lovely part of the weekend was when they served wine and cheese daily at around 4pm so that the folks staying there could discuss the day and share recommendations for dinner and things to do. We would definitely recommend this B&B to any of our friends and family.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Verandah Room with its' own entrance, fireplace, and steam shower.
