If a picture is worth a 1000 words, I'm posting as many as I can so you can really get the feel of this remarkable Inn. In one word…GO! Choosing any other place in Newport for your stay is settling for 2nd best, at best. I'll keep this short & sweet b/c the only reason you really read the reviews... More

My family and I (five of us) stayed here for two nights--My husband and I stayed in the Victorian Room in the main building and My mom, sister, and an aunt stayed in a suite in the separate building. We all loved the way the room was decorated with the fireplace in each room. We woke up smelling the coffee... More

Thank you so much for your review of the inn. It was lovely having your family with us and we are so happy they enjoyed Newport. I wish you had mentioned the bed while you were here. Each mattress has a pillow top on it. We could have removed it and make the mattress firmer. But we are thrilled that... More

We had an amazing two night stay despite the frigid weather. St George's Suite was beautiful with the biggest shower we have ever seen. As soon as we entered the B&B, we felt welcomed and at home. The "cocktail hour" was a relaxing time to meet other guests, and enjoy wine and snacks. Bill and Nancy share interesting stories of... More

Greg and Stephanie, It was wonderful having you here with us. By now you should have received an email with the French Toast Recipe! It was our pleasure to accommodate your allergies and are so glad that you enjoyed the items we prepared for you. We are still having snow, but that warm weather has to come soon. We look... More

We had a wonderful Valentine's weekend. I chose the inn based on the reviews. It really was enjoyable and relaxing just as I hoped it would be. We stayed in the garden suite and spent half the weekend in the tub. So if you do stay in that room, enjoying the tub is a must! I don't normally choose to... More

It was so lovely to have you and Craig stay with us for a romantic valentine's weekend. I love that tub in the Garden Suite too. I always feel like I could do laps in it! We are thrilled you were able to have a relaxing and enjoyable weekend here at the Cliffside. Hopefully, you'll be back for many more.... More

Prior to our visit, I spent a great deal of time researching places to stay in Newport, and the Cliffside Inn seemed like it would be the perfect place - it was very close! We visited for 2 nights in October and I have been debating whether to write this review as it is hard not to write a perfect... More

Mike, Thank you for all of the wonderful comments that you made about the inn. The service should not be any different regardless of whether we are here or not and I'm sorry that you felt it lacked something. Indeed, the individual you dealt with is no longer at the inn. I'm glad you were able to enjoy the breakfast... More

The Inn is beautiful and located steps away from the Cliff Walk. We stayed in "The Loft" and it was beautifully decorated and the huge whirlpool tub was relaxing and wonderful. We loved the Cliffside so much that we purchased a gift certificate to give as a wedding gift to our very close friends.

Well, Barrington isn't that far away. . . I hope that we will see you again soon. It was great to talk to you again on the phone and I'm looking forward to meeting your friends when they use that gift certificate. All the best, Nancy More

My husband and I stayed for 7 days at the Cliffside Inn in November. The staff was very helpful in telling us great sights to see and places to eat.
