Heard about Windsome from a friend who had stayed there. Very pleasant and helpful hosts, lovely rooms, quiet, convenient to downtown Newport. Ideal for two couples or a family, as the accommodation comprises two en suite bedrooms, and a shared sitting room. Plenty off street car parking.

My daughter and I stayed at the Windsome during a mother/daughter weekend. The Windsome Bed and Breakfast has two guest rooms. The accommodations were excellent! Our room was spacious and very comfortable. The large bathroom was a treat. There is a shared sitting area for the two guest rooms with a mini bar, fridge, fireplace and comfortable chairs. Breakfast was... More

This is a place with a big heart. The rooms are simple but charming. I loved the living room that has a fireplace and comfortable arm chairs. I can imagine spending there cold evenings playing board games. Hope I will come back on some point to do exactly that.

This room was clean. Valerie was very attentive without being overwhelming. Location was close enough to walk to downtown but far enough away to get away from the noise and get a good nights sleep. The price was very reasonable. We'll be back.

Valarie and Patrick are gracious hosts, extremely accommodating and super nice. Two rooms at top of stairs, Autumn (where we stayed) off of the common room (December off top of stairs). The room was clean and spacious (TV, ceiling fan, AC wall unit, big bathroom, table/chairs, etc.). The bed/sheets/pillows are comfortable. The common room was great for eating breakfast both...

Right from the start I found Valerie so accommodating. We had an early start but she was very flexible about when we could have breakfast. And it was Patrick who we met whilst we stayed who was very friendly and equally accommodating. I certainly felt like we had our own space and the room seemed newly decorated and a good... More

This is a no frills B&B. Room was very nice and very clean! It's really simple in terms of layout- 2 rooms and a small living area. Breakfast is left for you in the morning (fruit/yogurt or eggs) Location is pretty good...2 minute drive to beach and 3 minutes from town (not sure what walking distance is). It's not a... More

The property was nice and clean. Valerie was also nice. I do have to say it was a little less than we expected from a B & B experience, but not bad. We were given blueberry muffins and fruit and a pot of coffee that was left on the table before she left for work. I did have to reheat... More

We just spent 2 nights in the Autumn room last week. We really liked the room and everything that Valerie and Patrick provided. I'd echo other comments about their graciousness while giving you your space. In fact, we never did see Patrick. The room rates are also very reasonable, and the breakfast was more than adequate - and tasty. The... More

I stayed in the Autumn Room last summer. Valerie and Patrick were gracious hosts who went out of their way to send me off with tasty omelets and fresh fruit each morning yet who also were quite content to leave their guests to themselves. Quite a refreshing change from some B&Bs where the hosts hover and push. Having breakfast either... More
