We spent a wonderful few days at Cliffside Inn and would highly recommend it. The innkeepers and their employees are very friendly and helpful. The attention to detail, both in terms of service and upkeep/cleanliness of the inn, are unparalleled. The building is beautifully renovated with fine furnishings and is spotless -- not speck of dust to be found! Our... More

Cliffside borders access to the Cliffwalk and easy walks through the Mansion District, which is great. The Happy Hours and the breakfasts are delicious and fun ways to meet the hosts and other guests. The bedroom was charming and comfortable, with a nice ensuite bathroom. We recommend it!

We are so glad that you and Bruce enjoyed your time in the Blue Room. What a great bay window sitting area that room has. I always feel like I could just curl up like a cat there. I agree that we have a great location. Close enough that you can be in town in a mile walk or a... More

We spent a couple days at the Cliffside Inn to celebrate our anniversary just after Labor Day weekend. We stayed in the Turner Suite which was beautiful, comfortable and clean. Breakfast was delicious and the late afternoon snack with a glass (or three) of wine really hit the spot. The location was great, just steps from the cliff walk, and... More

It was great to see both of you relaxing and enjoying your time here. We are so happy we could provide "exactly the experience [you] were looking for". We do hope we will see you... More

My husband and I love staying at B&B’s and thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Cliffside Inn. Debbie welcomed us and was very helpful in telling us about Newport and the things to see and do. We arrived just as they were putting out a beautiful assortment of cheeses and wine for guests to enjoy. Perfect timing on our part... More

The Sun Room is one of my favorites! It is just so flush with light and I adore the steam shower. We are so glad that you enjoyed the room and your time at the Cliffside Inn. Being from Freehold, I always am excited to meet other folks from that area. Seeing the 07728 in your TripAdvisor id just makes... More

Pros: - The building and decor are lovely. Truly a gem with an amazing atmosphere. - The room (Turner Suite) was huge, extremely well equipped and wonderfully furnished. - Breakfasts were among the best I have ever had. The owner / chef is creative, skilful, makes the absolute best of the local produce, and is passionate about it. - It’s... More

We appreciate your thorough review of the Cliffside Inn. It is always a struggle for us when it comes to the furnishings. We try to balance keeping to tradition with modern conveniences. Unfortunately, the Victorian style was not build with a lot of drawer space. We do have some rooms with more drawers space and we'd be happy to discuss... More

I cannot say enough great things about the Cliffside Inn. From the lovely room (Beatrice) to the tasty breakfast -- everything was superb. My husband and I stayed two very relaxing nights there and loved every minute of it. The location is wonderful, right next to the Cliff Walk. And the owners are so friendly and helpful with any and... More

Thank you for choosing the Cliffside Inn and for all of your kind words about your experience here. We love the Beatrice Room too! That bath tub in the bay window is just decadent. Being such world travelers, you high praise really means a lot to us. All the best, Nancy and Bill More

The Cliffside Inn provided us a perfect 4 day vacation over Labor Day. From the moment we walked in we were treated to first class accommodations. From the French Press Coffee at breakfast to the bath products this was by far the best bed and breakfast we have ever stayed at. The Inn Keepers have thought of everything to make... More

Our first time in Newport, we checked into the Marriott and were so disappointed by the accommodations that we immediately hopped on the web to find an alternate place to stay. We stumbled upon the Cliffside Inn and it couldn't have been a more perfect and pleasant place to stay. It's located just steps away from the start of the... More

Thank you for that great review. We were thrilled when we got your "distress" call that we had space available. It was such a pleasure to see you and your mom enjoying Newport, the Cliffside and the Seaview Suite. Maybe next time your dad will be able to join in the fun. I hope the rest of your trip went...

We frequent Bed and Breakfast Inns and we have to say its one of the inns that are the top of our list. The staff was courteous and professional. The inn and it's rooms were immaculate. The owners and inn keeper were very accomodating. Beautiful fire pit and a stones throw away to the cliffwalk. I was slightly disappointed that... More

Thank you so much for reviewing the Cliffside Inn. Bill tightened up that bed the day you left. I wish we had known sooner so that we could've rectified the issue immediately. We do try to stay in the rooms on a rotating basis so that we can try to catch those issues ourselves, but that's not easy to do... More
