We came up to visit our son, who is in the DAAP program at University of Cincinnati. The Clifton House is located very close to the school. It is walking distance to a neat community of shops and restaurants. It's very safe to walk at night. We stayed in the cottage. The cottage gives you room to spread out, but... More

My son attended UC for the past 5 years and it wasn't until his graduation that we discovered the Clifton House. He lives on the same street, otherwise we would not have known it was there. A delightful place to stay. UC hosts many visiting speakers here. Walking distance to university and restaurants (Ludlow). Quiet neighborhood of nice homes with... More

We had a beautiful visit to the Clifton House. Our host, Nancy, greeted us with wine and fresh baked brownies, offering advice about dinner and weekend activities. She was charming and welcoming. Breakfast was incredible, starting with fresh, hot coffee sitting outside of our room door when we woke. We journeyed down to the dining room, following incredible smells. A... More

I recently visited Cincinnati to visit a colleague at the University of Cincinnati. The University put me up in the Clifton House and it was comfortable, convenient, and generally an excellent experience. The morning breakfasts (during my stay, at least) were prepared by excellent chefs who are professors/instructors at a nearby culinary school. The Clifton House is on a peaceful... More

After 27 years together, we had an ideal wedding in mind. Nancy at The Clifton House provided just that. The hospitality and professionalism she demonstrated while still providing an atmosphere of familiarity and elegant comfort was impressive. The mansion, itself, is beautiful with a dominant oak staircase ascending from the large entry hall. Every room is spacious and well-appointed. Our... More

This classic home, built around the turn of the last century, has been lovingly restored. In the heart of Clifton and close to U of C, this would be an obvious choice of stay for business travel or couples. As much as we enjoyed the home the host Nancy is even more enjoyable. Hospitable and quick to please we felt... More

This beautiful house will be your home in Cincinnati. My room was lovely, and I enjoyed spending time in the equally lovely downstairs parlor and library, and on the majestic porch. The proprietor is the perfect combinatioon of friendly and unintrusive. Breakfasts were wonderful, and I especially appreciated the very short walk to Ludlow Avenue, with its restaurants, cafes, and... More

We only had the pleasure to stay at Clifton House for one night, but we thoroughly enjoyed it. As others have said, Nancy makes you feel at home in this lovely historic inn. It is located near the university and Ludlow Avenue (lined with restaurants and shops.). Breakfast was delicious, and we enjoyed the conversation with the other guests.

I loved staying here. The host Nancy is very welcoming. Homemade brownies and wine at 5pm. Coffee and tea in the upstairs hallway early in the morning. The breakfasts were delicious. It was a real treat to try the goetta, a local Cincinnati sausage made with oats. Delicious! The Garden Room was spacious and very comfortable. I had an easy... More

I've stayed in B&B's all over the U.S. and Europe, and I must say the Clifton House is one of the best B&B's I've ever stayed in. The rooms are large and well appointed with beautiful furnishings. Nancy runs the place with a special flair that makes you feel welcome...almost like you're a guest in her home, and she cooks... More
