William's Grant Inn
Ranked #3 of 5 Bristol B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 13 August 2017 via mobile

My family and I stayed here last night while we were in for a wedding. Innkeeper Liz and her husband Doug were so welcoming and sweet as was their beautiful home. Clean, quaint and comfortable.

Bed provided a formidable great night sleep. And the luxurious bathrobes to melt in. Private bathrooms, beautiful shared spaces - sitting area, garden and dining area. All the amenities we needed. Love having ac and fan in each room. Everyone was comfortable and happy in each of our rooms.

Delicious French toast stuffed with strawberries and yummy sausages. Must come back to visit the beautiful town of Bristol and would definitely return to this B &B for sure.

Looking forward to seeing the completion of remodeling. None of shared spaces are affected by construction. Got to take a peak with Doug at future rooms. Sure to be beautiful. Lovely people lovely hosts.

Wonderful stay.

Stayed: August 2017, travelled with family

Four nights with Liz and Doug Miller at their homey inn was much more than we expected.
The relatively new proprietors of this 1808 house have created an atmosphere of warmth, comfort, hospitality and fellowship. In addition, they prepare superb breakfasts! The ancient yet comfortable air-conditioned rooms are surprisingly quiet and on a quiet street. the hosts have added a splendid, roomy, light, and inviting dining and sitting area, looking over their lovely garden, with comfy furniture, tv, .and available games.
Best of all are two caring and charming hosts, committed to make their inn a special place.

Room Tip: We stayed downstairs, convenient and quiet.

A Charming Bed & Breakfast for a visit to the Newport, RI area. Our room was lovely with all the essentials. The morning breakfast was delicious. Liz & Doug made us feel right at home. One thing to note, if you have trouble climbing stairs, request a first floor room.

We really enjoyed our stay at this charming inn in the historic section of Bristol. Liz and Doug did such a fabulous job renovating the kitchen and dining area in particular. This worked out perfectly for an overnight stay for the wedding we were attending. It was a rather chilly night, so we especially appreciated the gas fireplace in our master bedroom! Homemade chocolate chip and coconut cookies were plated in the entry way upon our arrival-- delish! Quiet, charming, with a newly renovated vibe. We would definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: Master bedroom on first floor has gas fireplace for a romantic ambience

We searched and searched for the right place for five couples -- friends from college and spouses -- to spend Memorial Day weekend. This was it! From our first call months in advance, Doug and Liz were friendly, accommodating, and organized (we booked the whole inn). We loved the tasty breakfasts, homemade cookies, luxurious bathrobes, and cozy, historic rooms. The lovely backyard, dining area, and kitchen gave us flexibility to hang out and catch up with friends. Thank you.
