My fiancé and I stayed at Bannister's Wharf Guest Rooms for two nights in mid-April. We love Newport and have had great experiences at other nearby hotels so we were looking forward to trying this place. We were excited about these rooms since the location looked great. Turns out, the location was the only positive attribute. As many of the...

We are very sorry to hear that your stay was not enjoyable. Our location is indeed unique, quaint and historic - we apologize that it was difficult to navigate your car to find parking on the wharf as it is a tight fit. Newport is definitely a hot spot with tourists and locals alike and we admit, we have many...

Visited on a snowy weekend. Arrived early to beat the storm. Had brunch at Clarke Cooke House and our keys to the room were brought to our table. Clean room, nautical styling, right on the harbor. I bundled up and sat on the patio overlooking the water. It was great. No boats, no outdoor restaurants open, no shoppers walking around....

This was our first time in Newport, it was truly BEAUTIFUL!! You wake up to a beautiful view of the water. We went during the summer so we got to have a front row seat to some fantastic yachts. Located right next to Bowen's Wharf, surrounded by cute shops and tons of places to grab a bite. A lot of...

Bannister Wharf is phenomenal. It has the old cottage, beachy feel of New England. The rooms are roomy and clean. Staff is very helpful and friendly. The one thing that you absolutely can NOT take away from the wharf is the peace, beauty and tranquility of the waterfront decks for rooms 1-4. My husband and I have spent every one...

The view was beautiful overlooking harbor. Room was adequate TV was very small I would say a small 13" computer screen size which was not good. It rained so we had to head back to room probably little earlier than we would have liked and the TV was a big disappointment. Few other things as well, hot water was not...

Clean and tastefully appointed rooms with a deck right outside your door with fabulous views of Newport Harbor. Located in the heart of the village, you are within walking distance to everything including some great dog friendly outdoor eateries.

it was winter time and me and a good friend decided to go to Newport overnight and made a reservation at Bannister's wharf. We stayed at the end of the pier and on the second floor. We arrived in the afternoon and noticed that they were varnishing the floors in the store underneath our room. dropped our things off and...

This is a very convenient location in downtown with parking and in close proximity to a number of restaurants and pubs. The rooms are large with coffee makers and small refrigerators. The TV (at least in Room #5) is small and quite a distance from the bed so long distance viewing is problematic. Staff was friendly and was able to...
