The Cliffside Inn is truly a gem! It is a very different experience, because it is not just a hotel, but a beautifully decorated home, with the most nice and welcoming hosts. The carpeted staircase (absolutely no noise!), the salon with its soothing music, the furniture, the decoration, everything was carefully thought to give the guests a relaxing and upscale experience.
We stayed two nights at the Sun Room, a small cosy room, with a bay window (just as can be seen in their website), everything impeccable and very romantic. The shower/sauna is a surprise: technology at the service of comfort. Classical music in the room! And the nightly turn-down service with two delicious cookies!
Breakfast was delicious, with different home-made treats prepared by Bill on the spot (omelets, pancakes, toasts, muffins...). The decor is amazing!
Besides breakfast, there is also the tea at 5 pm and the wine at 4:30 pm (on alternate days), with plenty of exquisite hors d'oeuvres. That is a nice way to make guests meet each other and exchange experiences, always under the charming presence of Nancy and Bill. They are wonderful hosts, who work a lot, but who are always helpful and attentive. They made us feel completely at home, and gave excellent indications for dinner (Mamma Louisa is a must!).
Newport, even in the rain, is marvelous! The mansions cannot be missed (we visited only two of them), and the Scenic Ocean Drive has wonderful views. We hope to be back soon and stay longer, trying another of the lovely rooms, preferably in a sunny weather...
