“3rd great stay”
Reviewed 12 July 2012

My family stayed at the Belle View Inn for the third summer last week. As a multi-generational group (ages 23-87), we all find the Belle View to be comfortable and accommodating. Since we live over seas, it is especially helpful that Lorna supplies extra things like beach chairs and umbrellas and always makes us feel at home.

My boyfriend and I decided to take a quick trip to Newport this year for the 4th of July. After researching a variety of Inns we decided to go with the Belle View Inn. It was our first time staying at the Inn and it did not disappoint- especially considering the rate was so affordable! Lorna, the host, was extremely warm and welcoming and helped to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. The continental breakfast she set up every morning contained a large variety of items, and her chocolate chip cookies were amazing! On top of Lorna's hospitality, the house was beautiful and in a perfect location. It was walking distance to Thames Street, the downtown center, as well as the beaches and cliff walk. There was also a parking space for us at the Inn which was a huge plus.

In terms of the room, we stayed in the Grand View Suite, which overlooked the Tennis Hall of Fame. The suite was very spacious and clean! The bed was comfortable and the kitchen and bathroom were fairly large. I would definitely stay at the Belle View Inn again and recommend it to anyone looking for a romantic and affordable getaway!

Room Tip: I'd reccommend the Grand View Suite to any couple or group of friends traveling. The room has a...

Lorna is very welcoming and full of knowledge about all you would want to do in Newport.
Nice location - central but quiet.

We booked a last minute trip to Newport for 4th of July and stayed at the Belle View Inn. It was our first time here and the Inn exceeded our expectations by far, especially since the rate was so affordable. The B&B is an ideal location, as it's walking distance to both Thames St and the beach. Our room was very comfortable and had its own entrance. Lorna was a gracious host and made sure no detail was overlooked. Breakfast was delicious and had many choices. We will stay here for sure next time.

We spent only 1 night at the Belle View Inn, but I definitely wish we had spent more. From the initial contact, Lorna provided exceptional customer service. She reached out several times to be sure that we had everything we needed prior to arrival. As we were arriving late and leaving early, she went as far as to put together a packed breakfast for us since we were leaving prior to when breakfast was served. The room itself was perfect. It was big - with both a sitting room and a bedroom and was very clean. Definitely a sweet place to stay - we plan to come back again and spend more time there.

Clean, very comfortable, and a great location. Very knowledgeable hostess. Continental breakfast was substantial (hard-boiled eggs, yogurts, pastry, fruit, etc.). Very good experience!

Four of us spent one night at the Belle View Inn and we were treated like we were regular customers from the first correspondence. You can't ask for much more from a Bed and Breakfast. It is a 15 minute walk to either Thames St or the beach. Everything was clean and well kept. Breakfast was very fresh with a great variety.

It's my first choice now for a stay in Newport.

Based on my other stays in Newport, you will pay dearly in dollars and amenities if you want that water view.
