Belle View Inn
Ranked #55 of 95 Newport B&B and Inns
Reviewed 1 July 2013

The Belleview Inn is a modest but charming, reasonably priced bed and breakfast. It is off the beaten path but still within walking (or biking) distance of the major points of interest. We took our bicycles and stored them safely. Both our hostess and her assistant who served breakfast were friendly and extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the town and its sights. Their recommendations for restaurants were right on target. The breakfast offerings were tasty and fresh and served in an elegant dining room while lovely classical music played in the background. Our hostess was more than willing to make special breakfast orders to accommodate diet restrictions. She also baked to-die-for chocolate chip cookies both days of our stay and left them out for us to snack on when we returned from our adventures (along with some fresh milk). Our room was comfortable and clean (however, we didn't spend much time in it) We would definitely return and I would not hesitate to recommend the inn to friends.

I came to Newport in June to play tennis and this B&B is directly across the street from the grass courts at the International Tennis Hall of Fame. In fact one of the cozy suites I stayed in is actually named after the Tennis HOF. Of course your stay here will be enhanced by the dynamic duo of Lorna and Emily, who will provide outstanding service and give you great recommendations on choosing mansions and local restaurants. In addition to the close proximity to tennis, there is also a supermarket, same day wash-and-fold laundromat, and FedEx shop right across the street. The Kingscote China trader mansion is nearby and has some of the best interior contents of all the mansions, including lots of silver, some authentic Chinnery paintings and Ben Franklin's autograph. It's also possible to stroll down the street from the inn to the famous Cliff Walk. Almost everything you'll need in Newport is within walking distance of this inn, plus great gelato, antiques, and sunsets. This B&B is simply wonderful! It's an absolute MUST for any tennis player who is making a pilgrimage to the grass courts, but non-tennis players will enjoy it as well. Don't forget to observe the osprey nest just beyond the upstairs balcony; a bonus for birdwatchers!

Room Tip: There are 2 suites upstairs: Freebody Park Suite: Better shower facility, ceiling fans to help bea...

Lorna and Tony run a superb B&B. They pay great attention to detail and customer service from the moment you make the reservation until the time that you leave. The accommodations very clean, spacious, and well appointed. It would be tough to find a more central location. They are the perfect balance for innkeepers - having a wealth of knowledge about the area and being super nice but not overwhelming on the guests. I have already made two more reservations for the coming months. There are a lot of accommodation choices in Newport but you won't find one that beats the Belle View Inn.

This was our first trip to Newport, and we were rewarded by finding the best place to stay. The Belle View Inn was centrally located just across from the Tennis Hall of fame, and we were able to walk to both the wharf area as well as to the beach and cliff walk and mansions. No need for driving, with off street parking an added bonus. The Inn was clean and beautifully decorated and the staff and Inn Keeper more than helpful with ideas for day trips in the area, and great places to eat. Make sure you eat at Sardellas at least once! Breakfast was served in a bright airy dining room, with a nice selection of fresh fruit, cereals, danish and bagels. Our room was spacious, with a comfortable bed, great bathroom, and sitting room with a refrigerator. What more could you need? We will definitely stay here again on our next visit to Newport.

My husband and I just returned from a trip to Newport where stayed at this wonderful Bed and Breakfast, the Belle View Inn. Since this was my first stay at a B&B, I didn't know what to expect. I can honestly say that I was delighted with the accommodations, location to downtown Newport, and hospitality. The owners are extremely knowledgeable about the area and made great recommendations on where to eat, sights to see, and the best way to make the most of our trip. We will definitely return to the Belle View Inn the next time we visit Newport.

My wife and I stayed for two nights in mid-May in the Freebody Suite. It was a great room on the first floor with two rooms, one with antique furniture and bed, the other a living space. The bathroom was spacious enough and the shower was amazing! The host Lorna was nice and very informative and the breakfasts were great too. There was a list the night before to choose from of what you wanted.
The location is perfect as it's about a 15min walk from the downtown area and maybe 10 to the start of the cliff-walk. As of mid-May you could only walk to the Breakers mansion on Ruggles Ave as Hurricane Sandy has shut the rest of it.
The B&B is opposite a supermarket which was convenient and also on a very quiet street.
We would recommend this place and would definitely stay there if we return to Newport!

We recently stayed at the Belle View Inn in Newport, Rhode Island. Lorna, the Innkeeper, was great! The Inn is within walking distance to many attractions: such as, the mansions, the shops, the cliff walk, restaurants and to the wharf. You can park your car when you arrive and not touch it again until you're ready to leave. This was our first stay at Belle View Inn thanks to our sons for this wonderful gift! We stayed in the "apartment/loft" and it was decorated beautifully; we had the whole room to ourselves! Our loft had a living room with a comfortable couch to watch TV; a small dining table; bed; bathroom with shower; kitchen area; and it was nice to wake up and enjoy a cup of coffee right there in our room before we went to the "main house" for breakfast ! Lorna gave us a lot of great suggestions and ideas and she was nice enough to email us before we arrived to ask if she could make reservations for us at the restaurant that our sons had chosen; we were very impressed with that even before we got there! It was also a very nice treat to always have cookies and coffee in the main house as well; in addition to the delicious breakfast, which we order individually and Lorna orders from a local bakery each day. There is always fresh fruit & Greek yogurt and Lorna also offered fresh berries-YUM! Lorna goes out of her way to make your stay pleasant and enjoyable and we had a wonderful time! This Inn is beautiful and we were delighted to stay there and would definitely stay there again and recommend it to our family and friends!
