“We Loved Inn Bliss”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 October 2008

We picked Inn Bliis based on the reviews here on tripadvisor.com and the inn's website. It was all just as we imagined, and then some. Nick was there when we arrived and spent at least a half an hour helping us with restaurant advice, mansion selections, running loops, entertaining pieces of Newport history and general do's and no-need-to do's in Newport. He was available throughout our stay and always had time for more advice and stories. His marvelous laugh is unforgettable, We did not meet Brian, who was away at a seminar, but we did meet handyman extrordinnaire John. We found the third floor Nellie's Suite to be very spacious, comfortable and private. The breakfasts were truly great and plentiful. We also enjoyed the time spent over at their sister property, the Architect's Inn. The Inn Bliss is a little bit out of the downtown loop, but is just a 5 minute drive or 15 minute walk to Thames St., the beaches or the Cliff Walk start. Everything went very well for us, and we would certainly highly reccomend the Inn Bliss to anyone planning a trip to Newport.

We were lucky enough to find this place on the Internet and had excellent booking service from Nick. Not only did he book our room, he also made recommendations and reservations for dining as well.

On arrival we were shown into the Lucretia Suite, which was nice and spacious. We had a comfortable bed, large closet and good bathroom with soak tub.

Once we had checked in our host made excellent recommendations on which mansions to see in the limited time we had. And he was spot on! We really enjoyed our time in Newport and a lot of it was due to the good recommendations of our host. We also had some excellent conversations with Nick while we were there.

The B & B is located on a quiet street in a quaint house. It is well decorated with lots of character.

The food is excellent! Breakfasts were real homemade treats, elegantly presented and very tasty.

If you are looking for a romantic spot with excellent hosts, Inn Bliss is a great choice.

We met friends in Newport for our annual summer get-together and stayed at Inn Bliss for three nights. It was terrific in every way. The rooms were great and the location pretty convenient. Nick and Brian were tremendous hosts, assisting us with planning of daily events, giving us restaurant recommendations (important because of food allergy issues - read on), and filling us in on Newport history. We had the Inn to ourselves because there were two couples, and that made for a great experience. We used the kitchen and hot tub without concern about bothering other guests, camped out in the living room at night, and felt totally at home, but very pampered.

We had chosen Inn Bliss because of their advertising about accommodating food allergies. Nick and Brian's ability to do so could not have been better. We were a tough group - lots of different food issues - needing lactose-free, gluten-free, soy-free, and more. They prepared delicious food that accommodated us all. It was truly an incredible experience and we are tough to make totally happy. We'll be back.

  • Liked — ability to accommodate food allergies

We happened upon Inn Bliss searching through multitudes of B&Bs in the Newport area. We wanted to stay somewhere small and friendly, rather than at a large impersonal hotel.

Nick and Brian provided a great atmosphere. Nick was there to greet us and spent a good bit of time with us making us feel welcome and finding out what we wanted to do on our short stay in Newport. He helped us pick out the best mansions to visit, shared some of the local gossip, and got us dinner reservations immediately. The rooms (Lucretia and Isaac) were not huge, but were very comforable for 1 or 2 people and beautifully furnished with antiques. We happened to be there on a rather warm summer weekend, but window AC in the guest rooms kept it nice and cool - the only downside was that it stayed pretty warm in the common areas of the house.

Parking for Inn Bliss is on the street and is somewhat limited, but we still had no more than a 10 to 20 yard walk from the car to the door even when the street was pretty full. Also, be aware that there are several steps leading up to the house and to the guest rooms - if you tend to overpack like I do, this is just something you might want to consider!

Nick cooked us lovely breakfasts each morning and spent plenty of time with us to make sure we had what we needed without hovering or being too "in your face". Inn Bliss was just the right balance of comfort, hospitality and privacy. We had a great time, and we really have no complaints!

My boyfriend and I recently stayed at Inn Bliss in Nellie's Suite. The entire weekend, from our warm welcome from Nick, to the beautiful, well-appointed rooms, to the delicious, well-presented breakfasts, was a wonderful, romantic vacation. Nick and Brian were gracious hosts and very knowledgeable about the area. Inn Bliss is convenient to the downtown area, yet also removed enough to offer a private, quiet retreat. We will definitely return.
