“A short but very sweet stay.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 December 2013 via mobile

We only stayed at this beautiful Inn for one night on our trip around New England but we had a great stay in the snug. It was such a cute and unique room, with it's little spiral staircase up to the bathroom. The Inn is beautifully decorated with attention to detail and the hospitality was very friendly, helpful and welcoming. We had an amazing breakfast cooked by Mark who owns the Inn and the lovely young lady who checked us in was very informative and helped us get the most out of our short stay in Newport. We enjoyed a lovely relaxing sit on the porch swing with our coffee before checking out. The Inn is located only a short walk to all that beautiful Newport has to offer. We would love to return in the future.

This place is way way cool. Our room was HUGE and really well appointed. Loved both the front porch and the back deck. The breakfast was fantastic and the setting perfect. The walk to the harbor was a bit longer than expected but in no way too far. Enjoy!

We stayed here 3 nights and really enjoyed our stay. Every morning the host presented us with a different breakfast menu to choose from. It was cooked to perfection. The B&B is situated close to the town centre and convenient for mansion visits. We did not tour any of the mansions because coming from the United Kingdom we have had pleasure of visiting many truly historical sites. Wr enjoyed the tennis museum.

We arrived on a Sunday night for a one night stay, a gift from our children. We were immediately greeted by a cheerful hostess who gave us a quick rundown of the property and rules and then saw us upstairs to the Rose room. Check in was quick and simple. The room is on the third floor of the inn and is difficult to get to if stairs are a problem for you. Inside the room, it was very quaint and decorated in a style reminiscent of the period in which the home was built, the mid 1700's. There is a gas fireplace in the room and seeing as it was November in New England, made the room very cozy and warm. King size bed was very comfortable and was dressed in non-commercial bed linens, which also added to the hominess of the room. The inn is located a short distance from all of the great attractions and restaurants in Newport, but far enough away to be quiet. Breakfast in bed was a nice touch and was well appreciated by two people who don't get that often!

Room Tip: If you have any difficulty with stairs, this is not the place for you.

We had the pleasure of staying at this great B an B. We were greeted with a warm welcome and shown to our cozy and beautiful room overlooking the back garden. After getting settled in we headed out to explore Newport. What a charming town, full of nautical themed stores, restaurants,, and activities. We experienced the most gorgeous sunset down at the wharf. Which is just a nice walk from Marshall Slocum Guest House. We made our way down Thames Street to a great little Italian restaurant called Mama Luisa. The food and drink were fantastic.
Coming back to our B and B was like coming home. So comfortable, clean and inviting.
Breakfast was exceptional with a choice of many things made to order and it was all delicious!
There are many choices for B and B's in Rhode Island, we are so glad we picked The Marshall Slocum Guest House!

Room Tip: There are I believe 8 or 9 rooms, all of them a little different. The only room I would question is...

Excellent - no question! if you are in the area stay here if you can.

The town is lovely, a well known tourist attraction, and this B&B is well placed to allow you to explore the historic centre.

The owner is very welcoming, typically reserved New England, but with plenty of advice on the area, if you wish it.

An excellent breakfast around the table with other guests was friendly and informative - a lovely way to start the day.

Bedroom was beautifully done, with a soft double bed so high they provide steps to get into it!

Not to be missed.

Room Tip: We were in Room 1 which was a corner room with lots of light, the bathroom and shower were great.

We spent 2 nights in this wonderful guest house. Everything about this Inn was excellent - staff, rooms & breakfast. I would recommend it to anyone as a most comfortable and friendly place to stay. I notice that it is fully booked most of the time - I am not surprised - I doubt that we could have found a better place to stay! This Inn sets the very high standard for this type of accommodation in the USA
