Armistead Cottage
Ranked #14 of 96 Newport B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 10 September 2010

My husband and I recently spent two nights at Armistead Cottage and were so pleased! The B&B is located in a quiet residential neighborhood an easy walking distance from the waterfront area. We stayed in the "Lilac Room," a beautifully decorated, comfortable room, which was spotlessly clean. As the temperatures approached 90 degrees, we appreciated the window air conditioner.

Our hostess, Romana is an absolute delight! She welcomed us to her home and made us feel so at home. Her breakfasts were delicious and ample. Conversation also was a pleasure at the table in the beautiful dining room. I would not hesitate to highly recommend staying at Armistead Cottage!

spent a couple of nights at this lovely B&B where we were 'entertained' by our host Romana. She makes this place the success it is with her quirkiness and sense of humour - great to chat to and very informative and helpful with regard to places of interest, local restaurants etc. Her home is beautifully decorated and furnished - our bedroom was very comfortable, although the air conditioning unit was a bit noisy and the bathroom small but functional. Breakfast was very convivial as all the guests gather round her big dining table to chat while Romana serves up a delicious and plentiful meal. If you like to stay somewhere different and want to meet interesting people, Armistead cottage is for you!

Clean, bright, good location. Romana our Hostess was perky, helpful and had a most interesting carrot museum. Good food, warm atmosphere. A definite must and will return.

I would highly recommend Armistead Cottage bed & breakfast. The setting was beautiful, clean, and charming. My room was extremely comfortable and lovely. This B& B is only a few blocks from the town center but it felt like I was far away from the noise and tourist activity. The cottage is only a short walk from all of the attractions that Newport has to offer.

The B&B owner, Romona, was an added delight. She is a wonderful hostess and her breakfasts are the best. Conversation around the breakfast table was interesting and relaxed.

I would highly recommend this B & B to anyone looking for a charming experience that you do not get when staying at a hotel that caters to tourism. My next trip to Newport will definitely include Armistead Cottage!

I can't believe this B&B was available during July 4th weekend! Romana made us feel so comfortable from our first phone call. We loved her stories, her sense of humor, her carrot collection, her husband Charles, and most of all her BREAKFAST! I am a foodie and was so impressed by her 3 course serving each morning!

The house was clean and tastefully decorated. Although her carrot collection is quite substantial, she contains it ever so neatly in a small room just off the kitchen. We stayed in the master suite which was very large and comfortable and very quiet.

The location is ideal as it is in the center of all the newport sites, but if you like to be close to the restaurants and marina it will take a good 15 minute walk to get there. Newport is a lovely town so walking is a great way to really get a chance to experience all the charm.

The Armistead Cottage was a wonderful experience and I can't wait to go back!
