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!

... uneventful and neither of us was up to any sightseeing, so we chose a seafood restaurant for dinner that was only half a mile from the hotel. It was featured on the food network show Diners, Drive Ins and Dives and had hugely positive reviews on Yelp.
The Portuguese Chowder was divine, everything else we had was terrible. My mussels and steamers were barely edible and Karen's scallops were rubbery and tasteless. I Yelp reviewed them on the spot as this place ...
... going to drag so slowly because doesn't that always seem to be the case when you have something to look forward to. Though I'm sure I'm going to be missing my comfy bed once I get on the plane and try to get a good night's sleep, it sucks that the flight is so late at night (11pm). I always get woken up by the flight attendants so they can give me my in-flight dinner (I take my sleep seriously people haha). Other than that 6 more days!! Ahh! I'm too excited!
... as yesterday, and couldnt resist heading back to the state house!Im dreading my upcoming load of washing, and am unsure if my next couch surfing host will have a washing machine so i just bought some new shirts, lucky the smell is contained in a bag!After a few hours i headed to see another couchsurfer, a girl called meg. She works in a boutique dessert store and after a really quick chat, she gave me a free piece of chocolate raspberry cake.Now that i had some energy, i ...
Woke to rain pattering on the roof. Actually, it was more of a pelting. We peaked out and the 2 tents set up next to us looked like they were floating on water. An emergency alert came on the radio "Flash floods and flood warnings" for many areas including ours! The plan was to head into Providence but that was apparently a bad spot for flooding so spent the ...
... more so than harvard IMO and took me a while to get around it all. I then visited the oldest baptist church in the USA. It was nice, but old. The state house dominates the skyline, and is a building remeniscent of the dome building in washington dc, it is beautiful and one of my favourite buildings in the USA. I even got to go inside, for free, to see the senate and the rhode island state library.I then headed back downtown to explore the city's hundreds ...
