Yes, it is an 'old establishment and some crtiques would say.........)
We stayed with friends for one night.
We were 'meeted and greeted' very curtously despite being a little early to check in and obviously a busy busy time with check-outs for staff.

This is a beautiful old Mansion that reflects the grandeur of olden days. We LOVED it.
The whole experience of afternoon tea and the breakfast?
To die for, and we are in 2012 remember with Fast Foods all round!
This was Fresh friut and an 'ordered cooked breakfast' to follow.

Rooms? Special. We had the Library Room. 11/10
Character 10/10,
Amenities 10/10,
Cleanlieness 10/10.

'Just Being There' 12/10!!......

We had a wonderful stay.

Thank you so much.
At times i wish we were 'seriously rich' so that we coudl rteturn to stay with you again!

We were very lucky to have secured a reservation in this lovely inn 2 days before the 4th of July. We stayed in the Beatrice Turner room. The king bed was so comfortable. Thank goodnes for the A/C. Breakfast was homey and filling and afternoon iced tea (a must), scones and hors d'ourves, yummy. The staff was awesome and so friendly and helpful. Great walking location to the harbor and shops. Would definitely return.

Room Tip: We stayed in Beatrice Turner. It has a comfy King bed and A/C is a must.

This was our first visit to Newport and the Inn was wonderful. We were greeted by a staff member and shown around the whole Inn. Our questions were answered and we immediately felt at home. The room was beautiful with a large queen bed and all the amenities we could ask for. We enjoyed iced tea and snacks after a 2 day drive from Indiana. Breakfast was amazing. I recommend the Crab Cakes Benedict with a crab cake eggs and Remoule sauce for breakfast. There was always fresh fruit and a selection of pastries too. Coffee and hot tea were available 24 hrs.

Cheryl the owner was friendly and sold us vouchers for touring the historic mansions and for a sunset sail. This was a considerable savings for us.

The Inn is located on a quiet street just 2 blocks from downtown Newport. Since the streets are narrow and parking is at a premium it was nice to be able to walk downtown for dinner and to see the sites. It is necessary to drive to the Mansions, but the Inn gave us detailed instructions on how to get to them.

The Adele Turner Inn is in an old neighborhood and it was fun to walk through the streets and see houses built in the 17th, 18th and 19th century. Would recommend the Inn to anyone seeking a quiet place to stay that is close to all that is going on in Newport.

Room Tip: Liked being up stairs. It was away from the dining room and front door.

We stayed three nights at the Adele Tuner Inn. The inn is within walking distance of the waterfront, mansions, Newport Art Museum, and Tennis Hall of Fame. They have discount vouchers for various tours and attractions. The parking is tight but we never had a problem getting a space. There is an additional lot just up the street. We enjoyed sitting outside of the inn and reading. Breakfast were very good, and include 3 hot choices, fresh fruit, juice, cereal, and baked goods. There is an afternoon tea (in the summer apparently iced tea), which also has fruit and finger sandwiches. The staff and owner are very nice and helpful. We stayed in the Music Festivals Room, which was larger than I expected, as was the bathroom. The reason I am giving it 4 stars rather than 5 is that the room could use some updating. Of course, if they do update it the rate will likely go up accordingly.

This is a beautiful B&B withing walking distance of downtown shops, reataurants and attractions. We stayed in the Americas Cup room on the first floor, front of the Inn. It had a nautical theme with lovely antique furnishings and modern touches added. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The bed was comfortable and although we were in the front it is a quiet area.
Breakfast was excellent with selections available from a menu. It was grad weekend when we were there so we could not get a seat in the breakfast room but we were offered a seat on the porch. It was a beautiful day and we thoroughly enjoyed the food and the ambience.
The only minor negative is the parking. Their is a small parking area at the Inn but it is a tight squeeze especially if other cars are not parked at the right angle. There was one space available but due to the tight space we did not stay there. We registered and were then told we could have a permit for the Legion which was just up the road. We took advantage of this and the parking lot was big and in a safe area so we had no concerns parking there. If there are alot of cars on sight when you arrive unload your bags and get the legion permit, it is well worth it.

Room Tip: We really enjoyed the America's Cup Room. If you have any mobility isues this room is on the fir...
