Wow. The attention to detail and the service is amazing. The rooms are beautiful, the staff is so accommodating and the food is incredible. I heard the woman next to me say it was the best Denver omelet she has ever had and she was from Denver! The owners seek to make your stay memorable. Go!

This is my third time staying at the inn and, I don't know how, but this was my best stay yet! Each time I've stayed has been spectacular, but I feel like it's a little more special every time I come back. I came with my family this time (parents, sister and her dog), and having everyone stay in the... More

I love the Cliffside Inn...I really do. The house is just so clean and beautiful, the owner's Bill and Nancy are friendly and fun. I really enjoyed our conversation with Nancy during the cocktail hour. Debbie and Tamara are available for every request. (Debbie is so funny and I love talking with her). Maryellen, the chef, really works magic in... More

We stayed at the Cliffside Inn to celebrate my birthday. We loved the Carriage House so much we booked it again :) Upon arrival, I was wished a happy birthday and our room had flowers and a welcome back/Happy Birthday sign. These little touches are all part of what make the inn so special. Newport is a fabulous location and... More

The inn is very cozy and welcoming! I have a few suggestions. Perhaps some comfortable chairs to sit and read a book outside on the lawn or the porch. Also some nice chairs around the fire pit instead of sitting on the stone wall. i would also suggest perhaps dimming the lights on the porch at night. The cocktail hour... More

My wife and I stayed there a couple weeks ago for our 20th anniversary. The place is beautiful. Every detail of the inn is amazing. Our room was romantic and very comfortable. We really enjoyed the wrap around porch with outside seating for breakfast or afternoon wine. And we spent every night at the fire pit after dinner to enjoy... More

Although I've been using TripAdvisor as a resource for years, I've never been moved to write a review (I'm more of a Yelp reviewer, I'm on there as Andy C) My wife and I just spent two nights at the Cliffside Inn and the experience was so fantastic I figured it was about time to write a TA review.

Wow, thank you for such a thoughtful review. We are thrilled that you enjoyed both the Garden Suite and the Adele Room. Both are great rooms in different ways. We are so glad that Amelia had a wonderful birthday and do hope we will see you again in the fall. Warmly, Nancy, Bill and the entire staff (and of course,... More

Cliffside Inn is a beautiful, recently restored B&B. Everything was clean and fresh. The owners, Bill and Nancy, were extremely hospitable and have owned the inn since 2010. We especially enjoyed the 5-7:00 wine and appetizers, and the breakfasts were delicious with fresh brewed, French pressed coffee - yum! The wrap-around porch is a great place to sit for breakfast...

My wife and I just completed a three day stay in Newport, Rhodes Island at the Cliffside Inn. We strongly recommend this Bed and Breakfast. Nancy and her staff were wonderful! They provided great service and were available to answer any question. The Inn itself was very clean and very well maintained. We stayed in the Sun room. The Inn... More

My wife, our dog Mini and I stayed at the Cliffside about a month ago and had such a great experience that we decided to come back. Our second experience was as great as our first (if not a little bit better, which I didn't think was possible). Nancy, Bill, Debbie, Tamara and the rest of the staff did an... More

I was so happy when I saw the reservation that you three are coming back. Mini Bells is quickly becoming one of my favorite four legged guests ever. And we love her parents too! I think in time, even Koty will have to breakdown and snuggle her. We are so glad that you enjoyed the Atlantic Suite and that the... More
