What a wonderful and friendly host Nancy is. Filled with info on interesting places to visit locally and downtown, Nancy is a wealth of information. The breakfast included in your nightly rate is nothing short of deliciously amazing. Cooked by a local culinary school graduate, the tastes and flavours change each day. Nancy's home is a charming and enjoyable place... More

We had a wonderful stay at the Clifton House! The house is lovely with lots of charm. Nancy is welcoming and accommodating, we loved hearing the history of the home and appreciated restaurant and activity suggestions. It was a quick drive to downtown and parking was very easy (and free!). The breakfast was absolutely wonderful! We will be back to... More

I enjoyed my visit here. Nancy is wonderful but I am going to mention also the negative. The B&B is very clean and quiet. The AC kept our room comfortable. Loved the porch and my husband loved the afternoon wine. Great location to walk 2 short blocks to a vibrant neighborhood with great restaurant and shops. The facility itself is... More

I am almost a little hesitant to write this review of the Clifton House for fear that it will become so popular that it will be difficult to get reservations in the future! But, Ms. Nancy who is the owner, has done a remarkable job and certainly deserves an exceptional review.... So here goes.... . We arrived in the late... More

This was a lovely place to stay. We were helping our son move in to a house nearby and stayed here. It was so wonderful, when we checked out to go stay with him and changed our mind, we checked back into the house. We got the same room which was exquisite and enjoyed it just as much the second...

From the very nicely presented full breakfast to comfortable rooms and a good location, Clifton house has it all. Originally a posh home belonging to a well-to-do banker, the home has been purchased and set up as an excellent B&B in the artsy gaslight district of Cincinnati near to the University of Cincinnati and Good Samaritan Hospital. On street parking... More

I was so glad to find this alternative to a corporate hotel on a business trip to Cincinnati. This is a lovely old home and, since at one point I was the only guest and had the opportunity to peek into the other rooms, I can vouch that there is not a bad room in the house! I stayed in... More

We were on tour playing concerts throughout the mid-west and while in Cincinnati we had the good fortune to be put up at Clifton House. What an amazing place! I honestly can't think of anything bad to say about it. The rooms were beautiful, the breakfast was delicious, and Nancy is the consummate hostess. Big recommendation for this place. Jim... More

We visit Cincinnati at least once a year, and ever since we stayed at Clifton House, it has become our "home". Nancy is one of the best-innkeepers ever. She is gracious, charming, helpful, wonderfully hospitable. The location is perfect, quiet, beautiful neighborhood, yet close to everything. Nancy´s guests are always very interesting, breakfast innovative and delicious. Can´t stop praising Nancy... More

I took my wife here as a getaway trip to celebrate our first child coming in the next few months. We were both very pleased with the room and the entire house itself. We stayed in the "romantic room" It was very comfortable and has its own bathroom attached. The hospitality was outstanding. Nancy, the owner of the house, was... More
