Mike and I always enjoy our stays at the Burbankrose, Newport, RI. We find it to be a very romantic, quaint bed and breakfast. A nice getaway to enjoy each other's company.

The Burbankrose is within walking distance of most everything from food to activities. The famous mansions are just a few minutes drive from the inn. Brian, our host, was very knowledgeable about the area. His suggestions about restaurants and attractions were spot on. The continental breakfasts were sumptious, the accommodations cozy and Brian was the perfect gentleman host.

In the middle of August, we decided on the spur of the moment to spend a couple of days in Newport that very same week. I looked up every B&B online but could find no vacancies, or only very expensive rooms of more than $300.00 a night. Finally I came across the "Burbank Rose" which did have a vacancy for the low price of $130.00 a night. We decided to take it, figuring that the place can't be much, given the low price in the middle of high season. When we arrived, we were completely in awe of the loveliness of the inn. As soon as we stepped inside, we were surrounded by wonderful antique furniture and knick knacks in every room. The cleanliness was impeccable, and the staff absolutely charming. The inn is steps from the harbor, shops, trolley station, parking lot and wonderful downtown life. Breakfast consisted of a plethora of fresh fruits and berries, fresh baked goodies; and unlimited yogurt, juice, coffee and tea all day long. Brian the proprietor makes you feel right at home and very much appreciated from the moment you set foot in his place, and does not pound you with any single word of rules and regulations upon your arrival. He's very helpful to help you plan your day's activities; and he's just an exceptionally jovial and generous innkeeper. My husband and I recommend this place heart and soul, and we will definitely stay at the Burbank Rose each trip we make to Newport.

We chose the BurbankRose because of the location...though we were skeptical since most places mention that they are walking distance to everything and they are usually not. This Inn was very close to everything we needed. I stayed in the "wicker room" which was far too bright and cheery for my tastes, but after reading one of the other reviews, there was clearly a better room for me. Fortunately, we were able to view the other rooms prior to departure and they are all very clean, unique and tastefully decorated. Forget your toothpaste? No worries, plenty on hand. The coziness of the sitting room prior to our evening out was extremely relaxing. The continental breakfast, homemade scones and fresh raspberries were amazing. We also loved the after-hours pizza delivery... The innkeeper, Brian Cole, was beyond accomodating and is one of the reasons we will return soon! Brian will do anything to make his guests comfortable, a rarity in and of itself.

We stayed at the Burbank Rose this past weekend and could not have asked for a better location in Newport. It is literally steps from Thames St, the main shopping area, and the wharfs. We were even able to walk to the Cliff Walk, even though that was a bit further. No, it is not the most luxurious b&b - it is an old house and has the usual wear and tear, and the rooms and bathrooms are tiny - but if you want to stay in the middle of it all at a really great rate, then you cannot ask for a better place. It's a guest house, not a b&b, so there is not big gourmet breakfast, just some fruit and yogurt and pastries (the raspberry scones were great!), but as long as you know that beforehand you'll be fine. We were allowed to bring our small Boston Terrier with us, as well, which was really appreciated. I think if you go in with an open mind knowing that while it's not going to be the fanciest or biggest place you'll ever stay, you will find that you'll really enjoy the Burbank Rose!
