We had a great stay ! We stayed in the Atlantic Suite , had such a pretty view . The inn has such a quite / relaxing feel . The evening hot d’oeuvres and breakfast were delicious. The inn is also steps from a portion of cliff walk and not far from the beach . Will definitely be returning.

We recently stayed over night in the Grovensors Suite. A beautiful room! Just as lovely as the photos. The room was wonderfully clean. In the times we are living that is so important. The inn is beautifully appointed. Lovely gardens and fire pit. The takeaway breakfast was just perfect. The inn was not crowded while we were their so we were able to enjoy our breakfast on the front porch. Just about a block to the Cliff walk, and beautiful views. We are walkers so for us it was a wonderful location. The staff was wonderful and attentive. We loved being away from the downtown area is a lovely quiet area. We would highly recommend and look forward to going back to this inn again

Wow I was impressed with everything. Comfortable bed, great service, food was excellent, walking distance to the cliff walk! They even had a wine hour in the evening and we got to enjoy the beautiful yard. Breakfast was delicious, loved the avocado toast. I love how each room has a different theme

Our stay at The Cliffside Inn was just perfect. Quiet and comfortable. Breakfast was yummy. And 5-6 cocktails was nice way to start the evening. The Loft was beautiful. Be prepared to climb stairs. ❤️

I surprised my husband for our anniversary. The room was beautiful and the view was spectacular. Breakfast was good. The bathroom was great. I liked all the little touches. Like the shampoo and conditioner. The lotion was very nice too.we were about a 20 minute walk from town , but I liked that it was a nice way to see things. I would go back again.

We stayed in the Garden Room. The bedroom is upstairs and the jacuzzi tub/bathroom/library nook area are downstairs. What we loved about the room I am always cold but was not cold at all in this room. I was able to comfortably walk barefoot. The best part is that the floor on the first level is heated! There is a fireplace on each level as well. There are 3 large windows overlooking the garden, so it is very bright, especially in the morning. There is also a partial view of the beach. From the internet pictures I wasn’t sure I would like the décor of the room, but it is actually very nice and works well for that space. The spiral staircase leading downstairs is pretty cool. What we loved about the B&B The Happy Hour: We met many interesting people at the happy hour (between 5-6pm). The snacks that are available all the time The friendly and accommodating staff What could be better about the B&B Breakfast for the most part breakfast was very good. The egg casseroles, muffins and breads were made fresh on site. and is served buffet style. I do like when the breakfast is a sit down meal and served as the guests come down. Room service – they told us up front that they clean the rooms every 3 days, but if you want them to clean it more often to hang the sign on the door. One time they cleaned the bedroom area, but not the downstairs bathroom area. Another day they didn’t clean up at all. It wasn’t that big of a deal, but I don’t like that the service was hit or miss.

Our first stay in Newport and The Cliffside Inn was the perfect choice! We stayed in the Cliff Suite and it was so lovely. Our suite was gorgeous and the Inn was so beautiful. The bed and linens were so comfortable and our suite and the entire inn was beautifully decorated. The staff was just amazing! So helpful, very friendly and went above and beyond to make our stay perfect. Breakfast was fantastic! We walked from our suite right to the Cliff Walk. I cannot recommend the Inn enough! We will definitely be coming back!
