We had a great stay! A review of Newport Bay Club & Hotel
I was a little nervous about some of the reviews before going away for a fun anniversary weekend in Newport but Newport Bay Club seemed like it would be a fun place and most importantly each room had a jacuzzi!
So we decided to book the 1 br suite.
We had absolutely no problems. Our jacuzzi worked just fine, the bed was comfortable, the Rhino Bar is downstairs but wasn't loud at all (athough it is off season and I was on the 3rd fl). In fact is was great to be able to walk downstairs without having to go out in the cold to have a beer.
The staff was professional and did a great job cleaning up the room while we were gone. The kitchen was stocked with all of the necessities and then some (fridge, wine opener, champagne glasses, etc)
Location was within walking distance or a quick drive to the wharf shopping areas.
If I had to find one bad thing about this hotel it would be the pillows - they seemed to be filled with big hunks of cotton batting so they weren't very comfortable to sleep on. But that didn't really matter too much since everything else was over the top.
I would recommend staying there - and next time we will try the townhouse!
