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

My husband and I recently stayed at the Cliffside Inn for 3 nights and had a wonderful time. From the moment we arrived we felt very welcomed. Debbie immediately asked us our dinner plans for our stay, offering suggestions if needed, and showing us on a map where we had already reserved. She personally walked us to the Cliff Suite... More

We spent a two nights break at Cliffside Inn and we confirm all positive reports. Nancy and Bill and the entire staff took care of us: Bill helped me to take a very heavy luggage up to the top of the stairs. We stayed in St. George's suite and our room was perfect with a remarkable marble bathroom. For sure... More

Our stay at the cliffside inn was perfect. The location is excellent with a neighborhood feel and just steps to the cliff walk. The breakfasts are amazing. We stayed in the Sun Room and it was perfect. The steam shower with aromatherapy was to die for. Bill made some great recommendations for exploring Newport. We will definitely stay here again...

Our August vacation at the Cliffside was our 3rd vacation there this year. The primary reason we go to the Cliffside is we are able to bring out little dog Mini-Bells. The third time around it felt like we were visiting family. Bill, Nancy, Tamara and Debbie (and the rest of the staff) were so welcoming - what a great... More

You know we love that little dog like she was our own. . . and you and Linda too! It is always a pleasure to have the three of you here with us. I hope you can work things out for October. It is a great time of year in Newport. Great weather and everything is still open. Warmly, Nancy,... More

My husband and I had a fabulous time at the Cliffside Inn this past weekend in the St. George room. The minute you enter the Inn you feel comfortable and relaxed. The staff and owners of the Inn were very friendly, attentive and very helpful with suggestions and recommendations on where to eat or what to do. The location was... More

How great is was to have you both here! I'm glad you had a little down time before your husband arrived. Although I thought you might wear a hole in that Cliff Walk! It was lovely getting to know you both and watching you enjoy your time in Newport. I hope that you will make it back to the Cliffside... More

The Cliffside Inn was the perfect spot for a long overdue reunion with my sister! We stayed in the guest house, where there was a pullout bed in the separate sitting room. There was a beautiful two-way fireplace that the sitting room shared with the HUGE bathroom! Oh that bathroom! There was a shower, a HUGE jetted tub, and a... More

Our recent stay at the Cliffside Inn was fabulous! When we walked into the Inn, we felt like we were walking into someone's home; very warm and inviting! The staff was very attentive and personally walked us to our accommodations. We stayed in the Cliff Suite in the Seaview Cottage. The room, actually three-room suite which included a very large...

We had such a great time having the three of you here. Sharing a glass of wine on the porch with you was like being with old friends. We could have chatted all night . . . and we almost did! Please plan on a longer stay the next time. There are so many things in Newport that I think... More

My wife got Beatrice's Room for a few nights, celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary. The inn was extremely comfortable, the hosts were gracious and the breakfasts were scrumptious! Great location: close to the Cliff walk and close enough to the hustle and bustle of downtown Newport without being right in the middle of it. Walked to most everything. Thank you... More

Well, thank you Karen and Barry! It was so great to have you here for your 30th wedding anniversary. I know you initially wanted the Loft, but we are thrilled that you enjoyed Beatrice's room. I really love our location too. As much as I like to go downtown, I love to retreat to the quiet serenity of the Cliffside's... More

It is hard to say what the best part of The Cliffside Inn was because everything about the experience was PERFECT! The location is ideal, just a few steps to the Cliff Walk. We stayed in the guest house which is within sight of the ocean. The bedroom and sitting room were very spacious and the bathroom was spectacular. Every... More

Thank you for your lovely review. We so enjoyed having you and your sister here. It was almost like having my own family. It was great seeing how much you both enjoyed our "city by the sea". We were glad you liked Jo's American Bistro too. That is such a great little find right near the inn. I know you... More
