Of the 18 B&B's we stayed in on this trip, Windsome was equal first. Clean, lovely uncluttered room, space to put bags and toiletries, a table to use the laptop or write letters on. Our host Valerie was very welcoming and provided 24 hour tea and coffee making facilities with fresh milk provided. This is always welcome on arrival after... More

Just got back (2 couples) from 3 nights at Windsome and can't find a fault in the world. The two lovely bedrooms each with ample bath and a nice parlor in the middle created a true home-away-from home experience. Valerie & Patrick were attentive and efficient but never intrusive (you get your key and treat it like your own house),... More

Though the outside appears a bit rundown, the rooms are extremely well kept, pleasant and clean. The response to our questions, breakfast, etc. were excellent. Would definitely return!

The B&B is located in a quiet residential part of town less than a mile (10-15 minute stroll) from the waterfront and Newports shops and restaurants. Our room 'Autumn', was absolutely beautiful, light, airy,... More

I recently stayed at Windsome while in Newport for a conference, and it was lovely. Valerie was very gracious and flexible, especially with my 3:30 a.m. arrival! I had my own keys and could come and go with ease. I enjoyed the "continental plus" style breakfast which allowed me to eat in my room if I wished rather than joining... More

Windsome is situated in a residential area which I was a bit wary about initially. However, it was in reality very central--within walking distance as well--to all there is to see and do in town. There are only two rooms, one with a shower only the other with a bath/shower. Both were well appointed and it is obvious that when... More
