      The Jailhouse Inn has a reat location right in Historic Newport. The staff could not have been nicer! The facility is lovely and the room was comfortable. I would recommend this hotel.

      The room we had faced the back of a pub/restaurant and therefore was a bit loud in the evening...Nothing that would keep you awake, but still when you want to sleep...any noise is a disruption. This room was also on the main floor, so if you stay on theother side of the main floor or upstairs this may be less of a problem.

      The Jailhouse Staff were exceptional. The Hotel is ideally situated; it is welcoming, warm and very comfortable - I highly recommend this Hotel. when I return to Newport my first port-of-call will be the Jailhouse. I cannot speak highly enough of the staff and the premises; it has an intriguing history, which is interesting and still very much alive; however the standard of the accommodation is by no means compromised and the staff offer a five star service. Congratulations to all !

      The cookies, the wine, the size of our room, location. (The area is quiet which is nice).

      The price was very expensive for the outdated and shabby decor. Our friends stayed elsewhere and paid alot less for a great location and pretty room. I would stay again if the price was better.

      The staff was very helpful; we had a family emergency which was extremly difficult to deal with and they completely understood.

      The website made the room look much nicer than they really were. The bed was the most uncomfortable bed we have every laid on. There was no central air and the unit was extremely loud. We barely slept the night we were there. For the amount of money it cost to stay we felt the rooms and decor could have been updated. Very outdated.

      Cold breakfast room; small, cramped bedroom and bath. There was absolutely nothing deluxe about this total non-luxury B & B.The owner must live on Fantasy Island. Never again.

      I enjoyed that it wasnt on the main road (Thames) which can get a bit busy. It was one blcok up which was in perfect walking distance to the major shopping as well as restaurants.

      On the booking confirmation there was never mention of limited parking. We were only able to park 1 car and had to pay for parking for the 2nd car for 2 nights. If this was known, I would have planned to only take 1 car. Staff warned us 3 times not to part the 2nd car in the parking lot. We were talked to as if we were college students, instead of 30 year olds.
