The room was so well cared for and every need was taken care of. Since it is a Bed and Breakfast one would expect the food part would be adequate, but their chef went over and above my expectations. I am sorry I only got to spend two breakfasts with them, as we would love to be surprised each morning... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for two nights a few months ago. We stayed in the Loft which was one of the less expensive rooms available and were very very impressed with the quality of the room! I can only imagine what the larger rooms are like. The mansion is gorgeous and our room even had its own staircase... More

My wife and I just stayed at the Cliffside Inn to celebrate our 15th wedding anniversary. The Inn was just perfect for us. The staff, rooms and food were all top notch. The Inn is seconds away from the Cliff Walk and minutes away from the historic Newport mansions. I definitely recommend a stay at the Cliffside Inn if you... More

The room had a downstairs floor with a very large and luxurious bathroom as well as a bookcase complete with window seat. We were also provided with bathrobes and... More

The location is great -- within walking distance to the water, mansions and downtown. The room was very spacious -- especially the bathroom and exceptionally clean throughout. The food was excellent both at breakfast and the afternoon wine and hor d'oeuvres. Bill and Nancy, along with their staff were very attentive and helpful -- and had great recommendations for restaurants.

My husband and I just stayed at the Cliffside Inn for 3 nights. We were there to celebrate our anniversary and I have to say the Inn was beautiful. We stayed in the Tower Suite and we were extremely impressed. Very romantic. I am a hotel snob and hotel condition and cleanliness is always on my mind and Cliffside inn... More

We stayed in the "blue" room-wonderful comfy bed, lovely window seat, gas fireplace, very nicely appointed bath room. We could not hear our neighbors....The delicious cookies left at turn down each evening were a special treat. We also enjoyed the evening wine and appetizers provided by our hosts. Breakfast was very hearty! Very fresh fruit, yogurt, cereal, a special muffin... More

Newport is a wonderful walking city. We are glad you were able to take advantage of it. Next time you... More

Cliff side inn is conveniently situated for the cliffside walk though be warned the walk takes longer than you would think due to rocks etc at the far end (we caught a bus back!) Breakfast was very good with a "hot dish of the day" or eggs cooked to your choice. Also fruit, granola , freshly baked choices. Breakfast on... More

The Cliffside Inn is just a wonderful place. The grounds, the house the rooms are all perfect. The Staff and Ownership couldn't be more accommodating. On Saturday night I had forgot to make reservations and on top of a usually busy weekend it was also graduation weekend so every place was packed. The staff called and managed to get us... More
