What a fabulous choice we made to stay at the Cliffside Inn for a quick anniversary getaway and covid reprieve. We felt very comfortable and safe as the inn adhered to all covid protocols.. The rooms in the Inn are beautiful. Our room was the blue room and it provided us everything we needed including a sneak peek ocean view! The location was perfect: the cliff walk, which gives you spectacular views of the ocean and Newport mansions, was a short walk from the inn. Thank you for our anniversary wine: cheers to the Cliffside Inn!

Property's Favorite Review
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

We visited Newport for the first time for our babymoon and had such a lovely time! The location was perfect, since it is so close to everything, especially the Cliff Walk. We expected to be indoors more than usual because of covid so we wanted to make sure the place we stayed was cozy with all the things we don’t have in our NY apt. It was perfect! It was very clean and we felt very safe with all the measures they took with covid. None of this at the sacrifice of the experience. One of our favorite things was starting the day with the takeaway breakfasts and the french press coffee in the library where there is a fireplace. That with all the holiday decorations and christmas music playing in the background, every morning felt like the epitome of all the holiday feels. Was very pleased with their hospitality-their mobile concierge helped to make us feel connected and accounted for and we were never in want of anything during our stay because we felt like everything we needed was already provided!

We loved our stay at the cliffside inn. Our room was so comfortable and cozy with the gas fireplace. The location to the cliff walk just steps away and about a mile away from the town of Newport is great. Also walking distance to the mansions. The homemade breakfast in the mornings were delicious. Wrap around porch and fire pit was amazing as well. The inn was very clean and enforced social distancing measures.

We had a wonderful stay at the Cliff Side Inn. The location is extremely convenient as well as private. The manor itself is nestled on a quiet road right next to the cliff walk. We stayed in “The Loft” for two nights. Very clean, gas fireplace, and an oversized two person jacuzzi tub. There is also a large shower in the bathroom. We woke up to the smell of blueberry scones that were to die for! Everyone was very friendly. We plan to go back every year.
