Historical Traveler Reviews The Attwater Newport
Simply the best place to stay
Attwater Villa is definitely the best choice for everyone - the service is great, everything is about the guests and everyone feels welcome. As soon as You come You get everything You might need as a tourist, the owner Himself or His wonderful wife goes over the map with You, answers all of Your questions and recommends the best places for food, fun and so on. They are the nicest people I've ever met - always friendly and considerate about each person staying at their place. Which is more they provide the customers with beach towels, beach chairs, umbrellas, candies, chips (Your kids will love this place!!), etc 24 hours a day :] And the breakfast is great! They have everything - fresh sliced fruit, whole fruit, cottage cheese, cream cheese, fresh bagels, bread, muffins, pastries, milk and all sorts of cereals and they even make their own Granola (it's magnificent!!), also each morning You can enjoy fresh cranberry, grapefruit or orange juice, the best coffee in town and many more things, in short - there's something for everyone. As well they have the best housekeepers in all over the USA, the rooms are always perfect and spotless, fully equipped and comfortable, the interior design is very original and cosy. The inn is very quiet and You can always enjoy Yourself, peace and silence during Your hollidays, they have a wonderful sundeck where You can relax for hours. The location is simply perfect - it's within walking distance from the beach, the Mansions, downtown and ather attractions. I am absolutely amazed and definitely will keep coming back to this place each time I go to Newport. And of course I recommend it for everyone who is going to visit Newport, and it does not matter how old You are, how many kids You have :] I am sure if You come to that place You will leave it with intention to come back some day :]
My husband and I stayed at this lovely b&b for New Year's eve. We have been to Newport many times but never stayed at this establishment. We were greeted by Roland the innker/owner and he was very accomodating. We stayed in a master suite which was so beautiful and the cleanliness was amazing! Our room was immaculate. We walked everywhere from the Attwater Villa because they are truly centally located in downtown. We were very pleased with our stay and Roland couldn't have been nicer. We will be back to the Attwater Villa.
Good choice - good value for the money
We were really happy with Attwater Villa. Nice rooms and good sugestions from owners about restaurants, trips, etc.
Overall, good value. If we visit again Newport, our first choice.
A lot of bang for very few bucks!
We just returned from a 5-day stay at the Attwater Villa, and we were quite comfy, thank you very much. We stayed in a "Queen Std." room up on the top floor (there's no elevator, so be sure to determine your room's location if lugging yourself and luggage up 3 flights is a concern).
Also, it's a bit of a hike down to the harbor area, where all the shops and hotels and boats are.
The room was fine, with lots of space for us and our stuff. Attractively furnished, clean as a whistle, with amenities galore. Only drawback was that the sink was in the room, off in an "alcove." But we'd known that already, having taken a "virtual tour" of the room on the Attwater's website. Dunno if the sink thing applies in any or all of the other rooms.
What was really cool was the buffet-style continental breakfast in a cheerful room just off the lobby. Fresh fruit, bagels, toast, muffins, cereal (including epic homemade granola) juice, coffee -- everything needed to set you up for a day of mansion-hopping. ("Charlie Mansion ..." we heard one long-suffering husband mutter.)
Plus there are beach towels, beach chairs, an outdoor deck, a sunroom, baskets of snacks and candy, and a really cute little black dachshund, Willie, a-snooze on the lobby settee.
Attwater met every need
Three very particular women stayed Thursday, July 21, 2005. We found the hotel on Trip Advisor; all of us were enthused. We parked the car for free for two days and walked to the beach, Cliff Walk, tennis club and harbor area. Our suite was very clean and welcoming and quiet. The bed was comfortable. The only drawback might be the sink in a separate bedroom alcove. The tub/shower and toilet were in a spotless, well-supplied bathroom. The hallways were large with sunny alcoves supplied with cozy chairs and magazines. Included were an extensive Continental buffet breakfast in a spotless, inviting breakfast room, baskets of snacks in the lobby, beach towels, beach chairs, and a huge outdoor second-floor lounging deck. The owner was gregarious and extremely helpful with suggestions and maps. For Newport, it was a very good value.
A Wonderful Little INN, great value!
The Attwater Villa is a great find in the heart of Newport. Tucked away in the downtown area just off Bellevue Avenue, easy walking distance to many shops and restaraunts. The Inn was built in the early 1900s and has just 12 rooms. Very charming vintage feel, yet the rooms have all been modernized. We stayed in a Master Suite which included a King bed, seperate living room with sofa bed, 2 TVs, refrigerator, coffee maker and lots of space. The rooms are very comfortable, well appointed, very clean and an exceptional value in comparison to others B&Bs in town. The hosts are Roland and Sadie who were very gracious and provided us with great information on attractions and local information. Complimently bowls of candies and treats were left on each floor of the Inn. Roland even baked brownies one evening for all the guests. A buffet continental breakfast is included in the rates which included breads, bagels, muffins, pastries, cereals (Roland's home made granola is the best!), fruit, juices, coffee and teas.
We would definately stay here again on our next visit to Newport.
Just what we were looking for!
We recently returned from a long weekend in Newport. We wanted to avoid a traditional B&B (not comfortable staying in someone else's home) and didn't want a pricey large hotel. Attwater Villa was perfect! It's a very quaint historical inn within walking distance to everything...we didn't touch the car once we got there.
The rooms are clean and a good size (and we stayed in one of the smaller rooms) and the price is certainly better than other hotels. The innkeeper is very friendly and helpful - when we checked in he went over a map of Newport with us and gave us great advice on where to eat and what attractions to see.
Newport is a great place to visit and we'll definitely stay at Attwater Villa again!
Great Place to Stay
Just returned from a wonderful trip to Newport. First time there and we loved it. We will definitely return. Thanks to Sadie and Roland, our trip turned out even better. The Attwater Villa was perfect. The room was spotless, the variety at breakfast great, the location just right (near everything), the "sweet treats" hit the spot - thank you, and Sadie's recommendations of what to see and where to eat made our trip just right. Kudos to Roland and Sadie!!!!
Attwater Villa- Family Loved it!
Our family of 3 stayed at the Attwater Villa and were very pleased with the cleanliness, excellent location - 1 block off of Bellevue, breakfast variety and evening "sweets surprises". The innkeeper, Roland was extremeley helpful and was responsive to all requests we had, down to providing in-room videos for our 5 year old and beach chairs, towels for our trip to 2nd beach. We were very pleased with the under-advertised gem of Newport!
A wonderful inn, in a nice quiet area....
This was our first time to Newport. If you want something different from the typical victorian inn, then go here. This is a modern looking B&B. We loved the website of this inn, very user friendly. We rented the 2 bedroom cottage, and it was very very nice. It's perfect for either a family or a group of friends. There are 2 separate bedrooms with queen beds as well as a living area with a queen size sofabed. The nice part is the living area, has a door, so if anyone uses that room as their sleeping area, then they can shut the door for privacy. There's a tv with DVD/ VCR, and a nice kitchen to store water or food. The sofabed was absolutely comfortable, and my friends also enjoyed the bedrooms. They serve a nice continental breakfast, with lots and lots of variety. The innkeeper, Roland was very helpful, and gave us great recommendations for places to see and eat. We toured the other B&B rooms, and they are amazingly cool looking, and the rooms were quiet large. We'll definitely come back here!

... there were hundreds of boats. Took some nice pictures with the guys down there in front as the sun was shining perfectly. Lots of cute looking ice cream shops like pinkberry & Ben and Jerrys around. Resisted the temptation!! We walked past a famous statue that's by the harbour called "the wave" it's a sea wave with a pair of feet hanging out. After a bit more of a walk around the shops and past the town centre we headed back for our ...
... bus was coming at 9.30 to go to Manhattan then I had to change there for the next one to providence Rhode Island. I nearly didn't get on the bus as I needed a confirmation number from my booking but can't get my emails out here so luckily he found my details and let me on. Was a quick 30 minute ride to Manhattan then I had the stress of finding my next bus station. Got there in the end then it was a long 5 hour bus journey ...
... few days. Thursday she spend most of the day sleeping and not able to go to the bathroom. She spent most of the time on our laps since we could see that she was not herself. I had a feeling that she would pass on during the night, while sleeping, but she ended up having a massive convulsion at about 10pm. She was barking, crying, foaming at the mouth and had deficate herself. We took her to a local emergency room vet clinic about 40 minutes away ...

... when I did a cervical disc replacement in Mexico. They paid the entire procedure. Start to finish, they sent the Mexican doctors and hospitals about $17,000 USD.
I thought that by consulting a U.S. surgeon, it may get the ball rolling and I would do the surgery here. But, that is not the case. A local surgeon has a different opinion about my problem, and he does not want to operate. Now I have re-think my options.
So, we are here to eat, ...
