My husband booked us in the Beach Rose Suite with direct ocean view to enjoy our 10th anniversary weekend. We were offered a glass of sparkling wine or bottle of water (chilled or unchilled) on arrival. There was also a complimentary bottle of sparkling wine in the room when we arrived. The room was stocked with fruit, snacks and a full bar service. There was a "C" throw pillow on the bed for our last name (nice touch). This is a gorgeous "old world" hotel walking steps from a beautiful beach. The service and amenities at this hotel are the top of the spectrum. However, you are absolutely paying for the quality and design of the hotel and this level of service. This is a special treat hotel stay.

My wife planned a wonderful 25th anniversary weekend for us at the unparalleled Ocean House. This is by far the nicest hotel we have ever visited. The service was impeccable starting with Elise providing us such a welcoming experience! She kicked off the weekend for us with glasses of champagne and then giving us short tour and inviting us to a cooking class that chef Paul was teaching. What a fun time we had making flat bread in a very intimate setting in the kitchen on the lower level! So good. We also then enjoyed a wine tasting class later on that afternoon. Our room was wonderful - up on the fourth floor near the Tower room. We had a nice view and really enjoyed all the design and small touches in the room. Friends of ours had ordered chocolate strawberries for us and they had them in the room - wow they were some of the biggest strawberries we have seen. The Ocean House goes out of their was to make sure everything is perfect. Around the hotel everyone says hello and a number of people remembered our names and were always so helpful. We had dinner on Friday night in season and it was fantastic. Alexander took care of us and did a wonderful job making sure we enjoyed our dinner. The farm to table dinner that is prepared by the Ocean House chefs is amazing. On Saturday we had a great time using one of complimentary Mercedes convertibles to visit some of the local wineries and then enjoyed a long walk on the beach! We had another wonderful dinner in the bar - if you have a chance try the very tasty pasta bolognese! On Sunday we enjoyed the incredible Ocean House brunch - only one word required - wow! We will be back to stay again and look forward to the new secret garden. Cheers!

When my husband surprised me with a two night stay at Ocean House, I was excited for the opportunity to get away. When I heard what the price was, I was concerned that any hotel could live up to the expectations you would expect for paying over $840 a night for a room (including taxes and fees). From the moment we arrived, until the moment we departed, the service was outstanding. The staff from the valet to the restaurant staff was exceptional, always smiling, professional and greeted us by name. Our room was spacious, comfortable and very charming. Personalized notes were left for us each day by the staff, referencing conversations that we had with them and referencing our children (nice touch). The floor valet was attentive and the maid service was superb. After our first night, I stopped at the front desk and asked about the availability of a terrace room (it was low-season and the hotel did not seem to be very busy). The women at the front desk could not have been more helpful, and after our day touring the mansions in Newport, we came back to another lovely room (with a terrace). While I know they can not always accommodate upgrade requests, it was clear that they would always do their best to accommodate any request. While this hotel is expensive, I can tell you that the service, location, amenities, food, drink and spectacular views were worth it. We are looking forward to our next trip. ** Stop in for lunch and order the 1/2 Lobster Roll & Soup, it was a great value, very tasty and even came with seasoned fries.

We discovered Ocean House by accident having only booked the day before. The service was exactly as you would expect. A welcoming champagne at checkin and a very comfortable room overlooking the back bay. We were welcomed at reception with champagne, always a nice touch. This is a very smart hotel with a certain old world charm, albeit with all the modern comforts you would expect. It has the atmosphere of a comfortable home from home. Congratulations to the staff, excellent service without the pomposity that I often find in similar European hotels. Will definitely return.

Looked forward to this brunch at this grand old hotel for many years as it has been on my "Bucket List". We(six ladies)travelled a good hour to make this happen on a very sunny, spring Sunday. We arrived on time for our reservations(complimentary valet parking and a fairly good number of stairs up to the entrance) and after a short wait were escorted to our table(not the table we requested when we made reservations months in advance). Since the table was unsatisfactory, we returned to the reception area while they set our requested table from which, we now had a nice view of the shoreline and ocean. This table was located on the closed-in porch (quite a bit brighter than the main brunch room). The buffet and brunch menu were extensive and both were included in the brunch fee, The buffet menu includes seafood(little necks on the half shell, oysters, and shrimp with a number of sauces - all chilled and nicely displayed. They had a salad bar, bread/pastry display, omelet/crepe station and many petite desserts as well as a cheese and soup station. All food was perfectly prepared and fresh looking. If I was disappointed it was because I thought the buffet lacked creativity. The menu offered a number of choices that they served to the table. I had eggs benedict which were beautifully served and cooked. The eggs had runny yokes and firm(not tough whites), the English muffin was tender and grilled/toasted and could easily be cut with a knife, plus the ham was delicate and tasty. Along side of these eggs was served a nice home fries patty(cake), topped with a half of broiled tomato and they were topped with the béarnaise sauce. Actually, enjoyed this more than the buffet except for the chilled shrimp. The service was excellent and the dining pleasant and unhurried - I had a nice, leisurely visit with the ladies. I guess I should mention that along with all this food came unlimited drinks of coffee, tea, champagne, and mimosas. Not to be missed or ignored is this elegant, old world, and nicely kept hotel with a history of its own. All in all, my visit was terrific with a moment back in time! Setting, help, and experience great.
