We booked it on a whim, and then hoped it was a good decision. It was. Really friendly hosts, great breakfast, and the room and lounge were fully equipped. We decided to upgrade to the larger room when we got there as it was a treat, but either would have been fine. Other reviewers had warned of the small rooms, and whilst this is true, the large lounge makes up for the room sizes, and also as other reviewers have said, it's a boat and small rooms are expected.
Pay attention to the booking confirmation email stating exactly how to find the boat. I didn't, and had to phone for directions which were duly given.
If you are wavering, just book it; you are unlikely to be disappointed.

A Yacht Experience

We spent two nights on the Ocean Romance to celebrate Christmas early. It was a surprise for my husband who has always been intrigued by boats. It was the refreshing, unique experience I was hoping for. I spent several weeks looking for a high quality, luxury type feeling boat experience until I found Ocean Romance. It met our expectations. We stayed in the Honeymoon Suite, the largest bedroom and quite spacious for a seafaring vessel. Our room had its own heat control and we were as toasty as we wanted to be. The entire yacht was clean and very well maintained. Jean and Dave our hosts were just that - very hospitable. They were concerned that we had everything to be comfortable. Frigs in both the common area and our bedroom were stocked with plenty of complimentary liquids. There were sweets and snacks put out for us. A continental breakfast was listed but it offered more than that. Each day Jean, who is an excellent cook made something from scratch. The first morning we enjoyed her glazed blueberry scones and the second day her Denver omelette. When we weren't exploring Newport, we spent our time relaxing in the inviting common area enjoying the ocean view and watching the sun set.

Having never stayed in a Bed and Breakfast, I was apprehensive about trying one, however the Ocean Romance Yacht sounded like it would be a change from staying in the same hotel we have used many times before in Newport. After just a couple hours, we were happy with the choice. Upon arrival, the owners meet us and took the time to make sure we were welcome and understood where everything was on the boat. During our stay, they were gracious and accommodating. The location in the bay beats looking out a hotel window at the bay, and nothing beats sitting on the upper deck and watching the sun set over the bay. We have found a new location to stay in Newport.

My husband and I did a weekend getaway to Newport to celebrate our 10th anniversary. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Ocean Romance! We stayed in the Honeymoon suite which is very clean, spacious and comfortable. The continental breakfast was very generous: much more than we expected for a continental breakfast! If you're looking for something different than the standard hotel or B&B, and especially if you love boats and the water, this is the place to stay!

We love traditional B&Bs and thought about staying in one but this was such an unique opportunity and we are so glad we stayed there. What a wonderful experience! The boat is beautiful. It's in a great location. Jean has thought of everything to make your stay perfect. She's an incredible hostess. We stayed four nights and loved every minute of it. Thanks Jean (and Dave)!
