The B&B was beautifully decorated and immaculate; soft jazz playing in the downstairs rooms at all times accompanying rich fragrances soothed you from the moment you walked in the door. The porch beckoned with a comfortable swing and a quiet neighborhood. We had a wonderful time at the Armistead Cottage. Romana, our hostess, was the icing on the cake. Whether...

I just want to address a situation that happened for a reservation I had for this weekend coming. I made the reservation within the cancellation policy and Romana worked with me to reschedule the dates I had reserved. The hurricane Irene had made it impossible for us to leave the Phila. area and Romana actually called me to discuss an...

From the vintage bathtub overflowing with fresh mint, to the eclectic carrot museum and exquisite artwork, we knew this wasn’t your typical Bed & Breakfast. Romana’s elegant style and attention to detail put the world’s most famous interior designers to shame. I am pleased to say Romana saw to it that our time there was nothing short of a fairytale...

Pulling up to the cottage was like seeing my future dream house. Colorful stained glass, well groomed beautiful lawn, huge painted porch with a swing. Romana, the hostess with the mostess, welcomed us and showed us to our cozy, super clean room. Not only did she go out of her way to make suggestions about restaurants and excursions, but she...

It's a beautiful home in a quiet residential area.It's only a few minutes to the hub of town, the mansions,Ciff walk etc. Most is close enough to walk if you so choose.We stayed two nights in a large romantic victorian...

My husband and I wanted came to Newport to get away from our busy city lives - and this past long weekend did just that. We felt miles away at Romana and Charles' peaceful, quiet house. Romana was very welcoming and made us feel right at home. She prepared delicious 3-course breakfasts in the morning that gave us plenty of...

Romana was a joy and gave us many great suggestions on where and what to do. The house was interesting and comfortable. We did a vacation package which was fun and at a great savings. We suggest you give it a try. Tony and Audrey

Look no further for a wonderful place to stay that is reasonably priced, immaculately clean and with breakfast food that could be in a fine restaurant. Romana and Charles are a delightful couple who are helpful and kind. I cannot say enough about what a fabulous time we had in this beautiful city in which there is so much to...

My wife and I stayed at Armistead Cottage B&B for a "baby moon" getaway a few weeks before the due date of our first child. I have to say that staying at this Bed and Breakfast was the perfect choice for us. We stayed on a Monday night and a Tuesday night. I used to live in Newport approximately 12...
