I stayed in the Victorian room, everything was beautiful and super clean, breakfast is fantastic, especially if you sit on the porch and enjoy the view. The staff is friendly and helpful and the owners are very nice people.

Vlad, Thank you so much for your kind review. You were a pleasure to have with us and we will miss you. It was so great to see Newport thorough your eyes (and your camera lens).

We had the good fortune to book a two day stay at Cliffside Inn for our 30th Anniversary and we could not have been more delighted with the experience. The accommodations were clean and updated and spacious. The Innkeepers (Nancy and Bill) and their entire staff could not have been more gracious and helpful. We particularly enjoyed the wonderful breakfast... More

It was our pleasure to host the two of you for your 30th wedding anniversary. We truly enjoyed having you here and getting to know you both. I really did think you might spend the entire first day on the front porch (which would have been fine) but I'm glad you got out to enjoy some of Newport as well.... More

My husband and I stayed here in September 2014 in the beautiful Garden Suite for our 10 year anniversary. The suite was beautiful and cozy, the Inn itself was impeccably maintained and exuded character, the breakfasts were delicious and the staff was wonderful (Bill and Nancy, the innkeepers, are fantastic). We've stayed at many luxury resorts and I can say,... More

Staff was very helpful and friendly, beautiful décor and great location, just steps from Cliffside walk. My wife and I would go for early stroll along the Cliffside walk, to return to a delicious breakfast, a great way to start the day. After a day of great activities (sailing, mansion tours etc) we were welcomed with a nice selection of... More

Thank you! We are so glad you enjoyed your time at the Cliffside Inn and in the St. George's Suite. That shower is really something. I'm happy you were able to enjoy the inn and the fire pit. I just love sitting out there at night with a good glass of wine. We look forward to seeing you again the... More

My husband and I recently stayed for a few nights at the Cliffside Inn. We have stayed at numerous inns in the past and The Cliffside Inn is definitely at the top of the list. The accommodations were beautiful and the breakfasts delicious. Since we had great weather we enjoyed relaxing on the porch especially at the 5:00 wine and... More

Thank you for taking the time to review the Cliffside Inn. We loved having you both here and are so glad that you enjoyed Beatrice's Room. It is such a special room with the double bay windows and the views. We are glad you were able to take a quick mid-week break and hope you'll find sometime again soon to... More

We have been to Cliffside Inn for our anniversary on two prior visits. The towels are soft, beds very comfortable, view and location ideal for this area. Our breakfast was excellent. Our only disappointment came because the website showed tea being offered and the day only offered wine and appetizers. Everything turned out fine, it was just unfortunate that we... More

Thank you so much for coming back to us after 13 years! We are glad that you were overall satisfied with your stay and that you will be coming back for a future visit. We are sorry about the confusion with the tea. We offer tea seasonally on Wednesday's during the winter. However, it appears that our website is missing... More

We stayed in the Garden Suite which was very comfortable. It had an interesting spiral stairway to a lower level floor that had a two person hot tub,, large 3/4 bathroom and a private patio with a waterfall. There was also a sitting area with a variety of books. We enjoyed the book that divulged the history of the inn... More

Cliffsideinn, Owner at Cliffside Inn, responded to this review

You are quite right, the Garden Suite is not handicapped accessible. In fact, the inn has only one room that is, the Victorian Room. If you ever come with someone that needs it, that would be the only room that can handle a wheelchair or a walker and for which you do not have to climb any stairs. Luckily, you... More

We have been to Newport RI many times and have never stayed at this beautiful B&B. I can say we will return soon. What a treasure. Right near the Cliff Walk and the beautiful Atlantic Ocean. Upon walking up the laterned stairs to the beautiful wood door entrance…you enter and feel at peace with the world. Such a lovely Inn.... More

Thank you for the wonderful review. It was lovely having you here to celebrate your anniversary. Looks like you've got your next visit all planned out. Any of those rooms will be a great choice, although the uniqueness of the Garden Suite is hard to copy. We look forward to having you back soon. Best, Nancy and Bill More

Newport has always been a favorite spot for my husband and me. We have stayed in 3 other locations in the past and although they were nice nothing compared to this! From the beautiful rooms to the breakfast to the tub, did I mention the tub? I love the fact you are seconds away from the cliff walk. The owners... More

We spent one night in Newport (after all, that's really all we can afford!) and stayed in the Garden Room here in May. Room-Exquisite attention to detail. I LOVED the heated floor, spacious tub, spiral staircase, and private outdoor patio. The two floor feature of this room is especially nice when you're looking for privacy, yet space. The amenities were... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I love when I hear from someone we haven't seen in a few months and they are still remembering the Cliffside fondly.
