My wife and I decided to take our first visit to Newport this week. Having never been before, we leaned on Trip Advisor for some ideas on hotels, restaurants, etc. Our quick research led us to the Cliffside Inn, which contained many, many positive reviews. After reading literally dozens of these remarks, we decided this might be the perfect place...

While we look forward to the ultimate compliment of a return visit, we thank you so much for the wonderful review. The whole staff enjoyed having the two of you here.

This was our first visit to both Newport and The Cliffside Inn. Only going by pictures on the web, we were hoping we had made the right decision. It did not take us long to realize that we had! The Cliffside Inn is a beautiful B&B! Although it is not located in the very heart of everything that is going...

I chose the Cliffside Inn based on the reviews from tripadvisor and I am so happy I did. We just spent a 4 day weekend here in September for our 10 year anniversary and we could not have been happier. The weather was amazing and eating breakfast on the porch every day was so wonderful and the coffee they bring...

Thank you for the wonderful review and for choosing the Cliffside Inn for your anniversary. It was such a pleasure having you both here. I forgot to ask you about other Tashjian's I know from NJ. We'll just have to save that conversation for next time. Hope you are having a great fall. Best, Nancy and Bill

Fantastic bed and breakfast. Extremely friendly staff. Alexa was particularly helpful. Great cottage, excellent breakfasts on both days, close to the Cliff Walk, Mansions, and downtown Newport. Highly recommend and will definitely come back.
