Description

Vacationing takes on a nautical flavor at The Wellington, situated right on the harbor in Newport. In addition to its superb location, the resort offers amenities, such as saunas, tennis courts, indoor and outdoor pools, a health club, and clubhouse. There are fabulous mansions to tour, including Belcourt Castle, The Breakers, The Elms, and Rosecliff-the setting for The Great Gatsby-and historic sites are plentiful in the area. For recreation, water sports are the leading pastime. Newport also hosts a number of art galleries and crafts shops.

i rented this unit from someone who exchanged it sight unseen when i spoke to her when we were here i told her they dont supply little things like complimentarey shampoo dish detergent no newspaper daily pretty minimal cost seeing i own a week at wyndham overlook week 25 and you get a daily paper and any other supplies for showering or laundry or extra towels at no extra cost we pay 839 for maintenance and have 1600 square feet to use and or own grill full oven and stove and no lockoff bedroom right next to ours that a complete stranger can rent out an the can conroll your heat that seems a little absurd the decks were a mess lots of patchwork here and the and the room was definately underfirnished i am going to try and post some photos to think they get 650 a night is a joke you can rent at a wyndham much cheaper but dont reccomend the inn on the harbor horrible place tiny .

I just got back from staying at the Wellington Resort. We had bought a timeshare there sight unseen based mainly on the reviews from other redweek members. It was an excellent choice.

The units are quite large and well laid out. We spent a lot of time exploring the nearby sights, but also spent a fair amount of time in the unit. The TV was good though it could have been a bit bigger. It was great having the washer and dryer in the unit. We even lit a fire in the fireplace one night.

The kitchen was also good though we missed having a stove. We asked the desk clerk why there are no stoves in many timeshare units in Newport. He told us that when these units were built the then mayor of Newport owned a restaurant, and he didn't want these tourists staying in their units to cook. So he passed some kind of fire ordinance to limit the number of stoves that could be installed. Having lived in Rhode Island for many years, this could be true. It's no longer a law, so we brought our own electric burner and a few pans to cook. The unit also had a microwave, toaster oven, full- sized refrigerator and electric skillet.

We had a fourth story unit facing the harbor. The view from our balcony was outstanding.

I didn't rate it five stars because though it was clean and fairly well maintained, it didn't have that put together look that Disney always seems to capture in their timeshares.

All in all, we're glad we purchased there!!!

This resort is lovely, with a great location at the quieter end of Thames Street and yet so close to all of the fabulous variety of restaurants, stores, and happenings in Newport. Our family of four has stayed here numerous times over the past 15 years, and never been disappointed! The units are spacious, tastefully furnished and the resort has a lot to offer on site, including 2 lighted tennis courts, Clubhouse, and 2 swimming pools, indoors and outside, plus one for our children when they were young.

Definitely recommend this resort over others in Newport due to its location, amenities and unit quality!

Stayed at this clean, well maintained time share in July 2006. Very pleased. Friendly service, clean unit, convenient - if you enjoy walking, the walk into town is definitely doable....10-15minutes, throw on a comfortable pair of walking shoes and off you go. You need a car to get to the beach and the Cliff Walk. The one downside was that since I only rented the one bedroom suite, the "A" side, the other half, "B side", was rented to another party. The walls are pretty thin. The couple staying in the "B" side had an infant who pretty much cried every 3-4 hours during the nite, which sometimes woke us up. Also, check out time is 10am, with no flexibility for a later departure. The pools have plenty of lounge chairs. There is plenty of parking as well.
