Most people are going to head to Newport during the warmer months to truly appreciate this waterfront community but there is much to do after the boats go under wraps. We traveled to see the mansions decorated for the holiday season and it was worth the trip. We stayed at the Fitzroy because we found it on Living Social; our...

Great place and perfect location. We parked the car on Friday when we arrived and didn't get back in until we left on Sunday. The inn was charming with hand painted murals and nicely decorated for Christmas. The breakfast was a basic cold buffet. Coffee was really good. There were some nice touches, my favorite was a makeup remover wipe...

Hello! We're so glad you enjoyed your recent stay and the "little things" our inn has to offer. We're especially glad you mentioned the Christmas decorations! It's surely a very festive time to visit! We would just like to mention, in response to your description of our breakfast, that we offer so much more than a typical cold buffet. For...

Ideal location for visiting Newport Mansions and availability of food choices. Charming house and room. Breakfast was wonderful with freshly baked goods (scones melted in our mouths), fresh fruit salad (hard to believe but it was much better than my SF hometown--various melon types were sweet and fresh in late November, as an example), cereals, bagels, etc. Armed with a...

Hi there! Thank you for your review of the inn, we truly love to hear feedback from guests. We are glad you talked about the breakfast variety since our "continental" spread is often overlooked as one of the perks of staying here at the inn. We do try to offer the freshest and tastiest selection. I'm also glad you mentioned...

My husband and I visited Newport this past weekend and spent 2 extremely comfortable and relaxing nights at the Admiral Fitzroy Inn. It is centrally located within walking distance of many shops and restaurants. The staff is friendly, hardworking and very courteous. The place is very clean and well-kept, and meticulously appointed to create a very comfortable, relaxed, period atmosphere....

Booked 25th anniversary due to photos of lovely rooms. We didn't care what room we got, as they all looked beautiful. Got a room not shown on web. Now we know why! Rundown-decor and furniture needs an update. Sofa and rugs need shampooing badly. Best part of the room was the tile in the shower which was fairly new. Clothes...

Dianne, I am very sorry that this was an unpleasant stay for you. However, since I have an entirely different view on your dis-satisfied experience, I would like to take the time to clarify a few things for future guests to the inn. First and foremost, upon check-in, you told our front desk staff that the room was “very nice.”...

So quaint and one of a kind this place was once a convent. You can't beat the rooftop to watch the sunset. Breakfast room is cute and sweet. Room was unique and comfortable. This place is within walking distance to many attractions in Newport.

The staff at this quaint B&B is what makes this place so great. The service was so wonderful. Some of the rooms could use a little updating (i.e. new carpeting, paint), but housekeeping is great and the place is very clean. Breakfast was very good, too. Location was perfect, and includes parking (which is tough in Newport). Highly recommemd!
