This was our first time at the Victoria Skylar B&B. Our hosts are friendly and welcoming, the room was spacious and the bed was superb. We had read about the great breakfasts, and they surpassed our expectations!

From beginning to end, this B&B surpassed our expectations. Ann and Derek were wonderful hosts. The breakfasts were several courses and elaborate with lots of fruit and a multitude of different coffee and teas. They were also very considerate about my wife's diet restrictions. Our room was large and comfortable and had very comfortable and tasteful furniture. We both highly...

I stayed at the beautiful Victoria Skylar Bed & Breakfast over Valentines day weekend. They had a fabulous romance package that included champagne, a dozen roses and godiva chocolates. The Syklar room was beautiful and spotless with a super comfy bed, beautiful crystal chandelier and fireplace. Breakfast was absolutely delicious, some of the best food I have ever eaten. The...

This was our 2nd stay at The Victoria Skylar. It was a nice 2 day getaway. This place is a gem with its gorgeous garden, quiet atmosphere and gracious hosts Anne and Derek. Enjoyed being by the water and touring the mansions in Newport. Will repeat our visit there in the near future. Love the breakfast there.

We arrived on a Thursday and stayed till Monday during the July 4th weekend. It was an anniversary trip for my husband and me. The location is close enough to walk to the tourist attractions near the wharf, but far enough away so that it is a quiet spot. The home and gardens were charming. Breakfast was at 9 am...

I've stayed at the Victoria Skylar a few times, and each time was fantastic. The bed and breakfast is gorgeous and is in a great location; away from all the noise so can enjoy a relaxing vacation, but not too far away, so can walk into town and enjoy everything that Newport has to offer. The beds are extremely comfortable...

This was our first trip to Rhode Island and the Victoria Skylar. We were there to tour the mansions and celebrate our best friends' 30th wedding anniversary. The Inn was so charming and comfortable - we couldn't have asked for a better experience!! Ann and Derek were wonderful hosts and I cannot say enough about Ann's cooking skills! Every breakfast...

Victoria Skylar is far enough away from the hustle and bustle of downtown Newport to be quiet, very comfortable, peaceful, and relaxing. Yet it is close enough to easily enjoy the pleasures of Newport. The warm and friendly service is great and very helpful. The home is a beautiful Victorian lovingly restored to be at its best. The gourmet breakfast...

First time at the Victoria Skylar and we were totally impressed..! It's a bit off the main street but totally worth it, especially if you like to walk amongst historic houses most dating back from the 1700's. The service is just excellent and the hosts seem to really care about their guests. They make you feel like if you were...

“Smallest room was really fine for us since we spent most of our days touring the mansions, the wharf, sailing one day and shopping. It's a good spot if you want to do some walking. It's about a 1/2 mile from the center of town.”
