Just spent 3 nights at the FMH and had a fantastic stay. The inn was immaculate,and the attention to detail was off the chain. The staff was all schooled by Emily Post herself... The breakfast was Michelin 3 star quality. The property is in the heart of the action, across from the warf and surprisingly quiet. We are B&B veterans...

We loved the Francis Malbone House Inn. Our room was perfect for our family of three. We had one queen and one twin. We have found it hard in the past to find a large room for our family when traveling and wanting to experience a bed and breakfast. The location was perfect and the food was fantastic. I would...

I'm not sure where to start. Warm staff, outstanding service, delicious food, beautiful inn, and a great location sums it up. But I think it's the little touches that really set them apart. I won't spoil the fun of discovery for first timers, but I will say that this was the best stay we've ever had at a B&B.

Very enjoyable stay at this historic bed & breakfast. Wide selection of breakfast items including menu with freshly made hot dishes. Room was comfortable, nicely furnished, and immaculately clean. On main street in walking distance to shops, restaurants and some of the historic mansions. There can be some night time activity on the street which makes it a bit noisy...

We stayed here one night while in Newport. The house is on Thames which is the main road that runs through downtown Newport along the harbor so location to this can't be beat. It has its own parking lot in the back which is a huge plus bc you can park and walk everywhere on the downtown strip to lots...

We returned to the Frances Malbone House after a ten year absence and were not disappointed. It was as charming and lovely as we remembered. The staff were all friendly and helpful, the rooms clean and the breakfast and tea very good. The garden is especially lovely, even at this time of year. We had become a little less enamored...

This is an exceptional establishment - great attention to detail. Wonderful Owner & Staff who cannot do enough to make your stay sheer perfection. The location is excellent. Park your car in the Inn's carpark & walk everwhere in the town which boasts excellent restaurants. Shopping is a pleasure. The beautiful mansions etc are only a short drive away.
