We stayed in the Tower Suite that has a view of the main garden and a little bit of the water. The room was impeccable, bed was comfortable, Jacuzzi bath was relaxing, and the privacy, which includes a separate entrance, was just perfect for our first visit to Newport. The innkeepers and staff were very friendly, service was attentive, the... More

This was my third time at the Cliffside Inn and I have to say it's the best place to stay in Newport. We stayed in the Tower Suite this time and it's gorgeous - two floors with big bay windows and a fireplace. The breakfasts and wine/cheese/delights are absolutely delicious. And the cookies at turndown melt in your mouth. I... More

A lovely Bed and Breakfast located in Newport, RI, overlooking the water and only a few steps from the Cliff Walk. We were warmly welcomed for our weekend stay, shown to our room, and in the morning served a delicious breakfast that included homemade granola and muffins. Our room was beautifully designed and tastefully furnished. Just charming. We loved it... More

The Cliffside Inn is the perfect choice for a long weekend in Newport! The home and rooms are beautifully appointed, and all of the staff are very warm and hospitable. Breakfast is lovely either indoors or outside on the wraparound porch. We especially enjoyed the cocktail hour each evening where you have the opportunity to meet fellow vacationers and compare...

The Cliffside Inn is a destination spot for sure! It's absolutely gorgeous inside and out, with each room uniquely furnished. Has a very grand and antique feel to it, combined with extremely comfortable chairs and beds. Bathrooms are big and spacious with beautiful tiles. Beds are very comfortable, and breakfast is delicious!! Service is top notch. And the Cliff Walk... More

Thank you so much for taking the time to review the inn. In fact, not only is the inn old-school, but it was one time the site of St. George's Prep School so it is an old school as well! It is getting to that time of year when s'mores by the firepit are a frequent event. We look forward... More

I could not have better things to say about my experience at the Cliffside. From the food and staff to the view and ambiance--it was exactly what I hoped for in a bed and breakfast. There are few places I've been that capture as genuine of an energy and style. I will definitely be staying there again for future visits!

I had the pleasure of staying here while in town for a friend's engagement party and could not have had a more enjoyable experience! The location was very convenient and the room well appointed. Bill and Nancy were delightful - Bill even joined us for a glass of wine at the fire pit. I look forward to my next visit!

This was my girlfriend’s second stay at a B&B and now she’s completely spoiled because the Cliffside Inn set the bar high with phenomenal dedicated service and delicate Victorian infused elegance. From the moment we arrived until we reluctantly checked out, we were treated as VIPs and friends. We enjoyed our stay in the Grosvenor Suite. The suite doesn’t have... More
