My husband and I stayed at the Banniser Wharf guest house in October, 2012 for one night. We LOVED it here. The room was perfect. We had two (comfortable) beds, with great pillows, a little fridge, microwave, coffee maker, everything you could need, nice clean bathroom. The location is AWESOME, looking right out onto the water and pier. Couldn't have a better location than this. A seafood festival was going on the day we were here, so it made it very conveinent to go back up to the room for anything that we needed. We ate dinner from one of the seafood vendors, it was deliciious. There are tons of shops and places to eat, all within walking distance. Make sure you know how to get the key before you get there. We called the restaurant and they were very helpful to us and showed us where to park (right up near the rooms...perfect), and got our keys for us. If I hadn't called the restuarant, I'm not sure I would have known how to check-in, just want to point that out to you before you stay. We will definitely be back, this place was awesome.

If your looking for a quaint place to stay then look no further. Bannister's Warf is a rooming house built right on the dock. You get up every morning and have a fabulous view of the water and the million dollar yachts. The room is small but clean. The bed comfortable. The staff was extremely helpful and accommodating. They have a front and back deck to watch all the action. Coffee shops and restaurants a few steps away..

On the Marina, next to all the restaurants, shops, fun, art galaries - the place is alive till 1:30 AM and most of the fun is walking around! They have parking right next to the rooms - really great. Stayed here for a night during the 4th of July holidays, this place is an experience. Just 4-6 rooms // clean, comfortable, and has the basics in place - coffee machine, iron, small fridge, tv, towels etc... the best part is stepping out of the room. The owners were quite nice and reasonable, and gave me a last minute walk in discount - which was great! thank you.

The 5 star rating is for the location alone, amazing, right in the centre of everything Newport has to offer. As two couples we stayed in suite 3, half way down the wharf, with two very clean, double bedrooms and a small living space/kitchenette. Nothing too fancy but comfy beds and a good shower, all you need. Only warning - watch your head on the low, characterful stairs and ceilings. The rooms at the end of the wharf looked even better, right on the water, with fantastic views onto the ocean and a great little seating area and coffee shop, need to book early to get these! We walked out from our room onto the hustling wharf which is littered with brilliant busy restaurants, bars, outside patios, coffee shops, fresh fish bars and shopping areas. We thought we were very lucky to get a parking spot in this busy area included with our room for our entire stay, also right on the wharf. The owners were a little hard to find at check in or checkout, but by asking around people in the restaurants and dock office were very helpful and pointed us in the right direction. As young people, pretty relaxed and calm, we did not find this stressful or disorganised of them and appreciated the owners as busy working people and we thought it added to the chilled out nature of the place. If I returned I wouldn't stay anywhere else, fantastic weekend and very affordable compared to surrounding lodgings! Thank you Bannister's Wharf for a fantastic birthday weekend to remember.

We stayed in a room overlooking the sea, luxury yachts less than 50 yards from our door, a sun deck where we could sit, read and people watch until the sun went down. Excellent cafes, bars and restaurants with character by the shed-load only a stones throw away, shopping within easy walking distance, car parking, comfy beds and a light airy room - what more can one ask for? I would really recommend a room overlooking the sea as some rooms overlook the wharf towards the town which don't have such a WOW! factor. I really hope to return to Newport and will definitely book a sea-facing room in this fabulous location. We went as a family of four and only stayed for one night (sadly) but would love to stay longer next time.

Room Tip: ALWAYS choose a sea-facing room

We recently stayed at Bannister's and found it to be what we expected. The location is great-in the midst of Newport Harbor so it is an easy walk to shopping and dining. The room was spotlessly clean and the entire staff was friendly and accommodating. Pet friendly and a great cafe downstairs for coffee and goodies too. A few things to consider (which did not trouble us) is the parking is tight and on the wharf so don't plan on bringing the huge SUV, it won't fit (you won't need a car anyways), the room we stayed in was a little musty smelling but you are literally on the water so I doubt if there is anything to be done about that (didn't find it offensive and the sunset view from the room was spectacular). We stayed during the quiet time of year, but with all that goes on at the wharf, I would expect the high summer season to be noisy with the bars, shops and boats (this IS a working harbor). We would recommend and return to Bannisters.
