We attended a wedding here and had family who stayed both in the main guest room area and in the Gatehouse. Accommodations were fair -- expensive and needed some basic maintenance. Although this is a historic hotel, the issues were things like stains on the couch in the common area, peeling wallpaper, etc. There was WiFi in the room. We... More

The hotel is beautiful and the grounds are spectacular. The room, which cost over $300 a night, was dated, very basic and too small for the furniture in it-but that was not what will keep us from going back. If you look at their website it says in VERY small print at the VERY bottom of the page that they... More

I attended a wedding at Oceancliff and stayed at the Oceancliff II (next door) which I assume is part of the same place. The venue was very nice, and the wedding was handled very well by all the staff. The bartenders were particularly good. The accommodation was very nice as well. It was a one bedroom suite with a full... More

Attended a wedding here and was very disappointed with the food and service. The appetizers at the cocktail hour were virtually non existent, I had to track down a server to get a single appetizer. The meal for dinner was poor, the salad was inedible, portions for the entree were minuscule, coffee, when we were able to get some, was... More

While looking for wedding venues we found the Ocean Cliff and immediately knew this was it! Our wedding was perfect! The views are amazing and the staff was incredible. Our guests occupied the majority of the beautiful guest rooms. After our reception many guests enjoyed a relaxing time in the Safari room. I can't say enough about this venue. A... More

An evening of pre wedding celebration. We had the Safari room for our families to meet and greet each other. Lovely room, friendly staff and a beautiful setting. Take the drive out before the sun sets. A beautiful ride and driving up to the venue is just as lovely. Go out on the back deck and see the views and... More

Stayed for a wedding. Very beautiful place. Wedding was amazing. Very expensive. But that's to be expected in Newport in July. Our room was adorable. A bit far from the center but a great location for a wedding or romantic get away. Not really recommended for children.

We attended a wedding reception at Oceancliff last month. Since we knew the setting was beautiful, we decided to have a mini-vacation and spend the night after the reception. We booked a deluxe king room. The room did have a king size bed (on a squeeky metal frame - not the sleigh bed advertised) but we never found the "deluxe"... More

The property is quite incredible, and what a beautiful venue for a wedding. Sunset over the bay during dinner was the perfect touch. If this area is an option for a wedding - you'd have to put it on the short-list for sure. Food was very nicely done. Wait staff was plentiful and top-notch. We arrived a few hours before... More
