We stayed at Cliffside Inn last weekend and loved it. The room was spacious (sea view suite) and spotless. The Inn Keepers were accommodating and very nice, especially to the dog :). I have high standards and have stayed in very nice places around the world and this met expectations. Breakfast was delicious! It's very close to the cliff walk... More

Highly recommend this beautiful victorian inn - the charm of an inn with absolute top notch luxury rooms and bathrooms. The location is perfect - quiet and a few steps from the Cliff Walk and away from the loud touristy area (but not too far away). Delicious breakfast served (not buffet style) in beautiful main room or outside on porch.

The Cliffside Inn was simply wonderful. The room was beautiful. Nancy and Bill, owners, are so welcoming and eager to share their love of Newport with you. The breakfasts were delicious and presented like you were eating at a five star restaurant. Every morning we were able to walk down the road to the Cliff Walk and enjoy the sun... More

In May we had the opportunity to do an impromptu getaway to Newport and selected the Cliffside Inn as our accomodation. What a fabulous property. The landscaping is beautiful. The location and proximity to the cliffwalk, the mansions and downtown Newport is terrific. Breakfast was delicious and we were able to enjoy it on the outside porch. The crepe especially... More

We stayed in a new cottage on the Inn's property that was clean, luxurious and quiet. The Innkeepers were friendly, eager to please and knowledgeable. They secured difficult to obtain dinner reservations as well as complementary high-profile sporting event tickets. The food from breakfast to bedtime cookies was homemade and delicious. The Inn is located on a quiet street next... More

We stayed at the Cliffside Inn for 3 nights and was a fabulous experience. It is located close to beach, shops, great restaurants and the Cliff Walk. Nancy and Bill, owners are terrific and so attentive to details. The staff amazing and so accomodating. We would definitely refer to family and friends, but of course would return in the future....

A wonderful 19th century Victorian house in a quiet neighborhood, but within easy walking distance of the Cliff Walk, the wharf, and numerous restaurants and other attractions. Each room is distinctive--we had the top floor loft with several skylights and a large four poster bed and fireplace. Breakfast was hearty and creative. Happy hour was also first rate. Both served...

We stayed there for our wedding and we were both overwhelmed by the beauty of the Inn, the exceptional kindness of the staff and our wonderful room. The breakfast is excellent and you can truly spend a uniquely peaceful and happy time there, sitting in the library, tasting wine or going on the beautiful cliff walk, that is in walking... More

We stayed at the Cliffside Inn for a week and frankly, it exceeded our expectations in every way. The property itself is a jewel, located just a stone's throw from the Cliff Walk. The rooms are named (quaintly, but amusingly) after people who have an intimate connection with the inn's history and are well appointed without detracting from the Victorian... More

We miss you both! No egg white omelet for the past few days! It was truly our pleasure to have you and Vivian with us. It was great getting to know you and seeing you enjoy our little town. I'll keep you posted if I hear anything about the Touro lawsuit. We can't wait to have you back with us... More
