We stayed in the Belle View Inn to help celebrate our third wedding anniversary - we had high hopes for a cozy, comfortable B&B in beautiful Newport and this inn easily exceeded our expectations.
They helped us celebrate our anniversary by thoughtfully leaving us a sweet card and local chocolate! This was one of the less expensive options in Newport, but it certainly didn't feel like any of the decor, service, or breakfasts were at all compromised.
The Osprey Nest room was nicer than the website photos show. All of the furniture seemed new, stylish, and carefully arranged. My wife took immediate advantage the useful closet to store almost all of our luggage - our room stayed clean and uncluttered throughout our visit. Our room had one of those instant mood setting remote controlled fireplace built into the tv's entertainment center. The bed was so clean and comfortable - the sheets felt like they were brand new. We enjoyed having our own, private entrance to our room; we like how this room felt secluded from all the others.
Lorna arranged for tasty local pastries to be delivered before the normal breakfast time on our departure morning because we needed to be on the road early. The inn's breakfasts were fresh and delicious; they suited us perfectly.
The Inn was really convenient for our hike to Newport's scenic cliff walk.
