“Belle View Inn Helped Us Enjoy Newport More”
Reviewed 11 July 2014

My wife and I had our first vacation in Newport RI in early July. Selection of Belle View Inn is one of the good decisions that we made to end up with a very enjoyable stay in the nice city. The perfect location of the inn and the tour information that Lorna provided very much helped us walk and drive around and reach the most attractive sites. Lorna really impressed us with her good knowledge of the city and well organized presentation on how to tour and dine there. Neverless to say, the tidiness and coziness of the inn made our stay very comfortable and relaxing. We will come back to the nice B&B when next time we visit Newport.

Our first time was in August 2013. We were pleasantly surprised to find this charming B&B,
great location which was walking distance to the famous mansions, Cliff walk, restaurants.
The owners, Lorna & Tony were hands-on, very gracious, informative & helped us navigate
our daily activities. Each bedroom was perfect - you can tell that they put a lot of thought on
the deco pieces. Breakfast was delightful & so were the freshly baked cookies in the afternoon!
Of course, we promised to make another trip & so we did in May 2014 with another set of
friends. In fact, we intend to come every year now, even for 2 nights. Newport is a wonderful
drive for us from New Jersey & without a doubt, we shall be staying at Belle View Inn again!

Went to stay at the Belle View Inn over Memorial Day Weekend, and was blown away by Lorna and her beautiful B&B! Lorna was an amazing host who gave great recommendations for activities, restaurants and of course mansion tours. The house was clean and the room we stayed in was bigger and better than I could have even expected. The location is great! Walking distance to downtown seaport, mansions are around the corner and the cliff walk is a short drive away. I would definitely recommend the Belle View to friends and family, and without hesitation stay here again on my next trip to Newport! (Plus the homemade cookies were delicious!)

My wife and I have been to Newport on numerous occasions, but this was our first stay at the incredibly charming and accommodating Belle View Inn. There are numerous positive attributes worthy of highlighting, but two pivotal ones jump to mind: 1) Strategic location of the inn with off-street parking (particularly key during high season) - Easy walking access to the wharf area, Cliff Walk-Mansions, First Beach, restaurants offering an array of cuisines, the historic downtown area and.... A shopping area (grocery and liquor stores) close at hand!. 2) The innkeepers make you feel incredibly welcome even before you have set foot on the property - the personalized care, warmth and authentic concern for your enjoyment and well-being is consistently evident. (We stayed in the Osprey Nest which was perfect for a couple and made regular use of the lovely front porch). Bottom line, we had a terrific stay and will surely come back again.

It was our first Bed and Breakfast we ever stayed at. Lorna and Tony were awesome hosts. Lorna was very helpful on suggesting what to do and where to go. She was always willing to answer any questions. They were very welcoming and breakfast every morning was delicious. We had a great time and hope all future B&Bs are as good as the Belle View Inn!
Thanks Again!

Lorna & Tony are excellent host. Their home is clean, near and perfectly located; out of the touristy hustle/bustle but still convenient to everything. We utilized the local trolley system (pick-up/drop-off stop only 1 block away) to visit the mansions and downtown seaport sites. We also took a morning stroll along the Cliff Walk located just a few blocks east of the inn. We sampled the local flavor along Memorial Blvd., especially Cappy’s. So do yourself a favor. Avoid the brand name hotels and consider the Belle View.

My family of three had the awesome experience of the Belle View Inn for the weekend.Our suite was PERFECT, so precious hated to leave it! Watched tennis from our private balcony on one end and watched the Osprey nest from the other private balcony. The hospitality of Lorna and Regina was unbeatable. Lorna gave all the perfect advice for "first timers "in RI. This B & B is in a wonderful location, and we can only hope to be so fortunate to visit again!! Thank you Lorna for sharing your home with us! The Slocumbs
