Belle View Inn
Ranked #58 of 95 Newport B&B and Inns
Reviewed 12 July 2011

My 87 year old aunt and I stayed at the Belle View Inn on the third floor suite. The full balcony which overlooks the tennis hall of fame and the baseball field was perfect for both early morning coffee before breakfast and for a late afternoon drink. It was peaceful and serene, as was the sitting area on the lawns. The location was ideal as I could walk/run to both the Cliff Walk and to a few of the mansions on the Belle View; however, I drove my aunt and parking was easy.
I highly recommend this B&B for location, cleanliness and the enthusiastic, yet un-intrusive, staff.

Did an overnight stay at The Belle View Inn and could not be happier. Went for The Hall of Fame Tennis and the inn is right across the street. Breakfast was fantastic and Lorna will even take the cliff walk with you in the morning. Will be back next year for sure

We just returned from a fun visit to Newport, RI and stayed at this cozy B&B again. We love this New England oasis, hidden amidst a bit of urban sprawl. The location is across from the Tennis Hall of Fame, ideal for my tennis-fan husband.There is also easy access to gorgeous beaches, walk to shopping, the magnificent cliff walk and cultural resources.The inn owner, Lorna, makes us feel like part of the family. The room choices offer suites, which makes bringing along my older mom easy and comfortable for all. Be prepared for a yummy,healthy and filling breakfast array.

This was a wonderful B&B... right in the middle of everything... equally close to the beach and to the town, both within walking distance which was great so we did not have to worry about parking ever (our car stayed in the Belle View Inn's parking lot almost the whole time)! It was also a wonderful location because at night when we just wanted some quiet, being just a few blocks from town kept the inn a very quiet place to rest and relax when we needed it. It was also right near a shopping plaza with Rite Aid, supermarket, a small restaurant and ice cream shop.

The inn itself is immaculate... clean, super comfortable, with cleaning service available as needed. The room had everything we needed... TV's, A/C's, a fridge and so much space.

The breakfast was wonderful... fresh pastries of your choice from a local bakery every morning (I went for the Morning Glory muffins which are amazing and my husband stuck to basics with a Bagel and cream cheese)... as well as a variety of hot/cold cereals, fresh fruit, coffee, tea, juices.

After breakfast, Lorna always had great ideas of things to do in the area and the best places to go depending on what we were in the mood for/looking for. My husbands favorite thing every afternoon were the yummy freshly baked cookies... they were a wonderful treat and just another unique and special thing that made the visit so great.

Overall just a wonderful place and we will definitely be back again!

We really enjoyed our stay at the Belle View Inn. Lorna went out of her way to make us feel welcome and ensure our needs were met at all times. Our suite was large and exceptionally clean! It also included our own private balcony. In my opinion, the cost comparison to other lodging options in Newport is VERY favorable. The Inn is within walking distance to all the best area attractions, including the waterfront, Cliff Walk, mansions and, most importantly, Easton's on the Beach (best lobster rolls around.) We'll definitely be back later this summer for a return stay at the Belle View Inn.

We had a two-day stay in this well-appointed, modern B & B with our adult daughter. We had a lovely two-room suite with internet, refrigerator and all the little touches to make it very comfortable. The owner, Lorna, is very welcoming, friendly and helpful, providing us with maps, discount tour tickets and information about local sights and activities. An unexpected pleasure was the fabulous continental breakfast, which included personalized breakfast entrees. We had a wonderful time and would definitely return the next time we are in Rhode Island.

Room Tip: Telephone owner directly for her recommendation.

My husband and I spend our 3 year Anniversary at the Belle View Inn - which was also our first time in Newport. The Inn Keeper, Lorna, was very helpful in giving us advice and information as to where to go to eat and also regarding the cliff walk, mansions, etc.

The B&B was very clean and had a very comfortable and relaxing atmosphere and was in a perfect distance between downtown and the Cliff Walk. We really enjoyed our stay and will definitley be returning visitors of the Belle View Inn!
