Pros: Great location to the Elms. We arrived at night and being new to the area, did not realize how close the Elms Mansion is to the inn (directly across the street). We had reserved Servants Tour tickets at the Elms and asked the person who greeted us (she never said her name and we do not know if she...

This place is centrally located and definitely NOT for someone that is looking for a quiet place to rest at night. It is off the main bar scene in Newport( Lower Thames is a one way and this street goes the other way so everyone drives down Thames then ZOOMS down this street all night long). The rooms are have...

My wife and I celebrated our anniversary at the Artful Lodger this past weekend and had a great time. Our room had a large jacuzzi tub which was very nice, along with a fireplace. The room was very clean and comfortable. We even forgot to bring wine glasses and were very happy to see that there were some in the...

Bathroom spacious and pristine. It even had a little in-room bistro set and mini fridge! But the best part was breakfast...holy cow it was amazing!!! I highly...

Stayed here for three days recently. The breakfast by Randy is enough for the day! Very nice and like how all the guests sat around the table to chat. Convenient (2/3mile) to the centre of Newport. There are some really nice restaurants closer too and Randy and Lisa can advise. Rooms are quaint and simple. Towels did smell a little...

Stayed at the Artful Lodger in November 2015. Rich and Lisa are excellent hosts. Their knowledge of the area is impeccable. The breakfast were super. Lisa remembers what you like for breakfast so that the following morning you don't have to ask. The B&B has an area on the third floor which is nice for relaxing and watching sunsets.
