If you're trying to decide which of the Newport Bed and Breakfasts you should stay in, one question you might have is: "How hands-on are the innkeepers"?

Having known the innkeepers personally for many years, I can attest to the level of personal attention and care shown to their guests. You can rest assured that your every need will be taken care of during your stay.

Of all the Newport Bed and Breakfasts, I doubt any of them have more dedicated innkeepers than the Francis Malbone House.

newport bed and breakfasts

I've been both a guest here, and a worker here. I was employed by the innkeepers' catering company for many years, and we worked many functions here.

I've seen the operation from both the front and the back of the house, and everything done here is first-rate in every way. I could go on and on about what a fantastic place this is!

Let's just say that if someone asked me which of the Newport Bed and Breakfasts they should stay in, the Francis Malbone House would be at the top of my list!
