“Nice Newport Stay”
Reviewed 13 September 2011

We had booked at the Cleveland House next door but was given the option with checking out the rooms available first and so took the ground floor room at this Inn and got first dibs for breakfast the following morning. Remember to put your name on the sign in breakfast list for your time preference. The french toast was good.
The only odd thing was only 1 bath towel for 2 people and it was a whirlpool bath.
Also, very tight squeeze in the parking lot.

BigMamaNewport, Owner at Admiral Farragut Inn, responded to this review, 16 September 2011
Thank you so much for your review and we are happy that you enjoyed our French Toast made with Portuguese Sweet Bread. I apologize for the towel shortage in your room; it was definitely an over-sight. We normally supply our larger rooms with 3 towels and we are happy to supply additional towels upon request. Parking in Newport is extremely tight, especially the historic district where the Admiral Farragut is located. We feel very fortunate to have our own parking lot; however, we do recognize that it can be difficult to maneuver large vehicles. We are able to assist in finding street parking, when necessary.

...and excellent service. We stayed in the attic room mentioned on one of the reviews below. It was perfectly fine. It had a light an airy quality, ample space and a new bathroom. The owners and other staff were welcoming and friendly throughout our visit. On Saturday morning, my wife and I both had blueberry pancakes and sausage, cooked to order for breakfast. It was a great start to the day. On Sunday, we had to check out very early but the owner made sure we got coffee and fruit to tide us over. The inn is on a quiet street, less than a 5 minute walk from Thames Street. We don't visit Newport often enough but the Admiral Farragut Inn was a great find and we hope to get back there in the fall.

The Admiral Farragut Inn is a historic in built around 1702. Understand we were British Colonies when this was built. There were no elevators in 1702, and thus a building built in 1702 shouldn’t have one. Our room was a very spacious room on the third floor with plenty of head clearance, and a very comfortable king sized bed. If there any sprits at the Admiral Farragut Inn it slept as well as we did.
From the moment we arrived our host was there for us. He clearly showed this Southern that the great hospitality can be found in Rhode Island. The location is a just a block off the wharf and shopping district. Don’t expect bagels and cream cheese for breakfast. What you can expect is your chose of freshly prepared pancakes, French toast, if the doesn’t suit your taste how about a mouth watering omelet. You’ll also find fresh Hot Coffee, Orange Juice, and fresh fruit.
The Admiral Farragut Inn is your chance to stay at the in a Bed & Breakfast that was built years before Paul Revere made his midnight ride declaring the British Are Coming.

Room in the attic was 8 x 8. Should have known better when "sharp" owner called day before to ask how tall my husband was! No coffee in the morning and unappetizing english muffins and other day old "toast your own" bread. Must say that it was nicely located but that's about it.

We booked this inn on a spur-of-the-moment urge to visit Newport and were dlighted with it.. The management and staff were wonderful. We were given a free upgrade to a first floor room (''The Admiral's Room'') with an impressive king-size bed that had ornate carved wooden posts and a mural on the wall across from it. The bath included a jacuzzi tub/shower. It was a hot day and the individually -controlled air conditioner was most welcome. The room, although on the small side, was clean and comfortably appointed in period pieces. We appreciated the onsite parking, as well as a delicious full breakfast, served in a sweet little breakfast room by a staff of solicitous young women. Although the building is quite old, it is located in a quiet, charming historical neighborhood just a block or two from Newport's main waterfront street. The cleanliness and coziness of our room, plus the pleasant helpfulness of the staff made us feel very comfortable. We will definietly stay here again when we next visit newport.

What a disappointing experience in this run down place. Although we were upgraded to a "better" room, the cleanliness and bed were disappointing.
There was a dirty duvet under the sheets, the yakuzi was worn and dirty and the room smelled musty.
Although we were promised and had paid for a full Amrican breakfast, we had to help ourselves from the refrigerator, the breakfast room was more like a passage way with no room for the guests.
The few breakfast cereals were no compensation for a full American breakfast.
The travel agency that had booked the room for us, Nato (North Atlantic Tourist organization) refused to contact us and reimburse us for another faulty booking that had happened before.
On leaving there was nobody there to say good bye!
