Stayed here for $138.00 a night for 2 nights in September. You certainly can't get that rate on any hotel right in Newport, so that's a good reason to stay here in itself.
This is my second stay in a B&B. The best way to describe the owner, Romana, is talkative & quirky. I barely met her Husband Charles or their 2 cats. The house is on a quite residential street. It is not within walking distance of attractions other than maybe Easton's Beach and the start of the Cliff Walk trail.
Our room was fine. There was a TV & VCR but a DVD player would have been more up to date and useful. The bathroom was nice but be warned the water pressure was slightly under average and the shower was a stall shower not a tub. (Other rooms may have a tub, you'll have to ask.) It did have an A/C unit that we did end up using and it worked fine although it did look old.
Romana's breakfasts are always at 9am and last at least 1 hr. That might not work for everybody. The food was original & savory and I enjoyed it but be warned, it's not traditional breakfast fare. If you were a picky eater and didn't like what was being served you had no other options. Not even toast or cereal etc.
Lastly, Romana & Charles offer complimentary water & soda to take with you on the road, and a plate of 2 cookies & a chocolate are left in your room at night. A cute touch but I couldn't tell if the cookies were homemade or store bought.
Overall on OK stay.
