We stayed here for the Governors Ball at Salve Regina University. Our room was fabulous. The decor and ambiance of the Inn was very special. The breakfasts were beyond words. Including home made granola, waffles and scrambled eggs. It is in a great location. It rained while we were there so we didn't get to look around much but it... More

Fantastic accommodations for both myself & my dog - my second year staying at the Cliffside was just a great as my first - I will definitely be returning. It's just close enough to downtown Newport you can walk and far enough away for some peace if you like. Reads, walk the Cliff Walk, go to the beach, just enjoy.... More

We loved the Cliffside Inn! First arriving, the inn is beautiful and the innkeeper was extremely friendly and gave us a ton of information about Newport and recommendations on what to see and do, and where to eat! We stayed in the Loft, which was gorgeous and extremely clean! The entire inn was extremely clean. Breakfast was delicious. Location was... More

What a wonderful place to stay for our honeymoon! The inn is charming and well-maintained. We stayed in the St. George suite, which offered a peak at the bay. It was on the third floor, but still easy to access. It offered a wonderful sitting room with gas fireplace, and an amazing two-person shower. The inn is adjacent to the... More

Cliff and Laurie, We are so glad you enjoyed your time at the Inn and in Beatrice's Room. It really is a special room. I wish you could have had a bit better weather. Newport has been very Florida-like the past few weeks. We hope you'll stay with us again if your travels take you to New England. Warmly (literally),... More

We went to the Cliffside Inn for a two-night honeymoon getaway and found it to be an exceptional choice. The Inn itself is beautifully decorated and immaculately cared for, the location is ideal for exploring all Newport has to offer and Bill is the consummate host and breakfast chef. What's more, the staff is extremely friendly and helpful. We highly... More

The room was romantic and the location was perfect. The best part was the staff! Quite a memorable experience. The outdoor fire pit, delicious complimentary breakfast, and chocolate dipped strawberries were just a few of the perks at the Cliffside Inn

We have been to many B&Bs. This was one of the best. The location was beautiful; architectural restoration and appointments were top notch; cleanliness, comfort and attention to detail was apparent. The inn keepers and staff were friendly and helpful. It is hard to list a single negative. We would highly recommend this to even the most discriminating tastes.

Nancy and Bill, along with their staff, could not have been more accommodating. Debbie and Martie were two of the warm and helpful staff members with whom we interacted. Whether it was a restaurant recommendation or an excursion suggestion, the staff was spot on. The inn was very clean, the breakfasts were delicious and the wine and hors d'oevres hour,... More

My wife and I had originally booked one night at the Cliffside Inn. In the end we stayed three nights and wish we'd been able to stay longer. We stayed in April, 2015 and started out in the Loft room - which was, of the two rooms we stayed in, our favourite. Beautiful furnishings, skylights (including over the bed so... More
