thank you for a wonderful time at your lovely Inn. My husband and I enjoyed our stay very much and look forward to returning on our next visit to Newport. The assistance you gave while we were with you was so kind and we will be sure to tell our friends about your place.

I selected the Hydrangea House for a weekend getaway in Newport and was pleasantly surprised that it totally reversed my perspective on B&Bs in its ability to compete with the finest hotels at which I have ever stayed. We were impressed with the great care of innkeepers Dennis and Grant in creating an elegant yet warm and inviting retreat. Our room (Hydrangea Suite) was a generously-sized suite: spotless, beautifully furnished, and loaded with all of the amenities of a five star hotel. The bed linens were crisp on top of a super comfortable mattress. We loved unwinding with the wine and cheese reception each afternoon. Breakfast on all three days was delicious - mains included Vanilla French Toast, Eggs florentine, apple pancake fritters - and gave us a great start before we headed out for sightseeing. I'm still thinking about the fritters! Dennis and Grant were friendly and helpful with all of our questions about the Inn, local things to do and restaurant suggestions. It was clear that they care about their guests and make every effort to create the perfect experience. We are looking forward to a reason to visit Newport again to enjoy another stay at the Hydrangea House.

As a post-script, we noticed upon our return home that we accidentally left some belongings behind in our room. Dennis and Grant shipped the items via priority mail and we had them within a few days. This was beyond expectations and appreciated (thank you!).

Room Tip: Suites are extremely large, adding to the great value of this Inn.

We stayed in the Dudley Newton Suite for our 30th anniversary. The inn is very clean and comfortable, and the rooms are spotless and spacious. The breakfasts are nicely done, I especially liked the crispy french toast. The inn is across from the Viking Hotel, a good location, with plenty of parking in the back of the building.

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!!
