Stayed over the Easter weekend in early April. Service was excellent, breakfast was delicious and our room was very spacious and comfortable. My wife and I enjoyed the history behind this B&B which we found very well kept and clean. We enjoyed the evening wine and appetizer hour especially after walking the full 6 mile cliff walk; only 200 yards... More

Bill and Nancy along with their staff are excellent hosts. Very personable and willing to help with anything you need. The home and grounds are all immaculate. Great place to stay and look forward to coming back again.

Amazing stay at Cliffside Inn!. My mother and grandmother purchased a gift certificate for my husband and me as a Christmas/ Anniversary present. My mom is not tech savvy and does not use trip advisor. She did her research by phone and said that the owner was a delight to talk with and spent time answering her every question and... More

My wife and I stayed here for here for a short getaway in the beginning of the week in April. She found it listed as number one B&B on tripadvisor and, after doing some more research, booked it. We were not disappointed. The house itself was very beautiful and in line with the feel of Newport itself. It is situated... More

Stayed in the blue room on the second floor for three nights in April. Loved the window seat and the gas fireplace that we used frequently. Nancy and Bill are very lovely hosts and the breakfasts we delicious. The Cliff Walk was right down the street and we walked to the Breakers one morning. Definitely will be back.

Cheryl, It was wonderful having you both here at the Cliffside Inn. I love making New Jersey connections. We really enjoyed our chats during the wine hour and hope that you will make it back up to Newport soon. The flowers still are resisting blooming. Maybe daffodils next week? All the best, Nancy and Bill More

First, know that I am not a B&B person but I would come back here in a minute. We came to get away for some quiet and to explore Newport - and this inn was a great spot to do it - the hosts are very helpful; the breakfast is delicious; and we could walk to quite a lot, with... More

Come back. The weather has turned beautiful and I really think things will start blooming any second. Well, that and we loved having you here. It is so nice when couples from different locations can have a comfortable place to get away, and we are so glad we could do that for both of you. The Cliff Suite was the... More

During the last week in January, we stayed 4 nights at the beautiful Cliffside. There was a storm with blizzard like conditions and lots of snow. The bridge to Newport was closed and travel was not possible. Our gracious, caring Innkeepers Nancy and Bill assured Us that if the power was lost, we would be fine because "We have wine,... More

It was so great to have you both back after almost three years. And then a snow storm! I guess it takes a village and sometimes a village with a dog! Thank you for your wonderful review. Koty, the staff and Bill's parents all say hi. Hopefully, your next visit will be soon and during better weather. We hope your... More

We really enjoyed the Beatrice room, wine at 5pm, and our host Bill was very informative and helpful. If you are looking for a charming, updated B&B, this will do the trick. Our room was as advertised in the web site and we got to read all about Beatrice Turner the artist who spent her whole life living in this... More

I think we are all thankful that winter is over. The Cliff Walk is open with no snow anywhere and even a few daffodils trying to peak their heads out. Thank you for the wonderful review. I'm thrilled that you enjoyed your time at the inn and that everyone took care of you in my absence (not that there was... More

My fiance and I stayed here after getting engaged this January. This Bed and Breakfast was beautiful. We stayed in the upstairs room that had a fireplace, a king size bed, and french doors opening into a beautiful bathroom with Jacuzzi tub that probably could have fit three people! I loved this place and would definitely go again.

Congratulations again to you and Jacob. We are so happy that you picked the Cliffside Inn for your engagement. The Loft is perfect for that - so private and cozy. We are looking forward to news about the wedding. Best, Nancy and Bill More

It is difficult to write any more superlatives that are already included in other reviews. This is the challenge. My husband surprised me with this lodging. I knew we were going to Newport to a B&B but I didn't know where. This two-night stay at the Cliffside Inn was how he chose to celebrate my 80th (oh, no) birthday. It... More

It was lovely having both of you here for your BIG Birthday. Don't worry, you look no where near 80. It was so great to hear you swapping travel stories with the other guests.
