We stayed in the tower room. It was immaculate. The amenities were great. The fireplace was fantastic. We were treated like long-time friends. The inn is beautiful. The breakfast was delicious. We have no complaints whatsoever. We thoroughly enjoyed our time.

The Cliffside Inn was impeccably clean and had all the amenities of a 5 star hotel. This B & B went above and beyond our expectations. Loved the history of Beatrice Turner, a fascinating woman. The inn keeper, Bill was so gracious and informative on Newport. We look forward to staying there again.

We stayed for an extended weekend in December 2014. I visit Newport a few times a year to visit family but this is my first time at the Cliffside Inn. We will always come back to this inn for future visits. The rooms are beautiful and the bathrooms dreamy! Our room had gorgeous white/grey large tile with an overside shower... More

My husband and I were thrilled with our honeymoon stay at the Cliffside Inn. We, including our dog Clarence, received a warm welcome and a tour of our luxurious Atlantic suite, exactly as we had pictured it from viewing it online. In the mornings and evenings, we enjoyed peaceful walks along the Cliffwalk with gorgeous views of the open sea.... More

My husband and I have stayed in many B&Bs/inns in the USA and abroad, and this is easily in our top three. The inn itself is gorgeous; you really do need to commend the owners for conceptualizing an amazing restoration of this property. We stayed in the Tower Suite, which had lovely views out of the bedroom (perfect for reading... More

This was our first time to Newport & we were hesitant to do a B&B, so we booked their Carriage House (no staircase & ample privacy). It was just steps away from the main house, so convenient for meals. It was spacious with a great bathroom, great views overlooking the grounds & had its own parking space. The owners &... More

If you are looking for a quiet place to spend your weekend, no need to look further. This place is for you and your loved one. The wine and cheese hour is a great time to meet other guests at the Inn and hear their stories. Once the sun has gone and down and the moon has risen you don't... More

My husband surprised me with a stay at the Cliffside in over Valentine's Day weekend. We loved it so much we already booked another stay! We were in the Turner Suite and loved it! The attention to detail from the luxurious bath robes to the rose petals on the bed went above and beyond our highest expectations. The atmosphere, the... More

Wow, "Absolutely Perfect"...that is a wonderful compliment! We are thrilled that the two of you had such a great stay. Your comments about the inn, our breakfast and the special touches make me smile. Valentine's weekend was a cozy and romantic one here at the inn, though I recall spending a good part of the time shoveling snow and cleaning... More

My wife and I decided to stay at the Cliffside Inn after reading the trip advisor reviews and checking out the Inn's website. We selected the Grosvenor Suite. Let me say that the room was much nicer then the few pictures on the website. The room had a king size bed and the room had a love seat and two... More

Thank you for the terrific description of the inn and the thoughtful review of your stay with us. It means a lot to us to receive such detailed and thoughtful feedback. The weekend you stayed with us was the weekend Nancy left for her two week trip to Africa. So, I was quite pleased to be able to show her,... More

Friends were getting married at Cliffside Inn and invited us to join them for the ceremony and an overnight stay. The owners are lovely and made the library available for the wedding and provided a plate of cheese and fruit. A fire in the fireplace made a very private and romantic setting. We stayed for the night and had breakfast... More

Thank you, Lucy, for the great review of your stay with us. Elopements are very special events at Cliffside, and we really enjoyed having the four of you stay with us for your friend's marriage. What a lovely winter evening it was for a wedding...though I think they underestimated the snow by about 8". We look forward to seeing you... More
