We spent 2 nights at this lovely historical inn right in the heart of the historical Newport. The staff were extremely friendly and engaging. This was a winter getaway so the Inn was quiet with customers which made for very specialized attention.

This is a beautifully appointed Inn nestled in the center of Newport. The food, service and rooms...all five star. We will definitely return. I have never written a review before. Unless I feel it's perfect I won't bother. Francis Malbone is cozy, clean and wonderful!! A great get away!

Thank you once again to Anne Maria, Janet, Suzanne and Will for a wonderful visit to the Francis Malbone House. You continue to offer a wonderful "home away from home" for our winter get-a-ways! Our time at Malbone passes much too quickly, but it makes us look forward to our next visit even more! Keep up the great work!
