Cliffside Inn is by far the the best B&B I have experienced in all my travels. The owners and staff are all wonderful people that provide excellent service and great food! My wife and I have stayed in the Sun Room twice, (where there is a great steam shower that plays music from your iPhone or iPod), and plan on coming back many more times in the future. The location of the inn is about a mile from the main attractions of Newport, but if the weather is pleasant it is only about a 20 minute walk to everything. Also, the inn is located right near the Cliffside Walk, which provides stunning views of the ocean, and direct access to walk to the Breakers mansion and Bellevue Avenue (where all the other mansions and Tennis Hall of Fame are). We highly recommend staying at the Cliffside Inn if you are planning a trip to Newport. It will definitely be one of the highlights of your visit!

Thank you for that great review. It was great having you back with us so soon. We're going to have to have you break out into another room at some point! But I can understand your affinity for the steam shower in the Sun Room. It is especially nice this time of year.

We look forward to your next visit.

Happy New Year,
Nancy and Bill

Cliffside Inn is the best. From the moment of our arrival we were greeted by friendly staff who assisted us at check-in & anything else we wanted. We stayed for one night in the Tower Suite, which luckily had a one night availability. Our room was impeccably clean & comfortable with a great view of the ocean. The bathroom on the first floor, the bedroom on the second. At first we were concerned that would be problematic, but it was no problem at all! The bathroom was luxurious, great shower & tub. The bed was super comfortable. Nancy & Bill & the staff could not have been more accommodating. Breakfast was delicious, fresh & homemade. We enjoyed meeting other travelers. The inn is in an excellent location. All in all a fantastic getaway. We are eager to return. Nancy & Bill have created a wonderful atmosphere in a beautiful bed and breakfast.

We are so glad you were able to get away for a night and come to the Cliffside. The Tower Suite is one of our guests favorites so I am glad you were able to find an open night. Our staff takes a lot of pride in their work and we really appreciate you noticing it.

Hope you have a happy holiday,
Nancy and Bill

Our stay at the Cliffside Inn could not have been better.
The house itself is as clean, comfortable, and warm and inviting as possiable.
The host/owners, Bill and Nancy are as plesant and accommodating as can be and Bill cooks up a scrumptious breakfast.
There is no question where we will be staying on next visit to Newport

A wonderful night in The Loft at Cliffside Inn. The room was beautifully appointed and spotlessly clean with many thoughtful touches. The owners were very welcoming and helpful. The Inn is in a quiet location but within walking distance to Newport attractions and the Cliff Walk. We highly recommend this Inn and we will return!

We wish it had been for more than one night too. It was lovely having you here. Hopefully, as your travels take you between the UK and Vermont you'll find some more time to stay with us. Hope you had a safe trip home and are having a wonderful holiday.

I wanted to surprise my boyfriend with a trip and figured Newport would be the perfect distance from Boston. I happened to stumble across Cliffside Inn while browsing Tripadvisor, and I'm glad I did! This B&B is the perfect location for a nice getaway but would also be great for families as well. The location is perfect for a walk along the Cliff Walk and is only a short distance to downtown Newport.

We stayed in the Carriage House and were completely blown away. I had looked at pictures ahead of time but the ones posted online did the room (specifically the bathroom) no justice. Everything was PERFECT from the bottle of wine left for the celebration to the absolutely delicious breakfast int he morning. Bill and Nancy were unbelievable hosts that make this B&B just a delight to stay at. We are already discussing the next room we will stay in for our trip back!!!

Room Tip: You really can't go wrong with any room, but if you are looking for a more private spot, choose the Carriage House.

Well, I'm just glad the Patriots won that week! It was wonderful to have you both here to celebrate Nick's birthday. Thank you so much for the great review. We are thrilled you were "blown away" by the Carriage House. It is so hard to have pictures do the rooms justice.

Looking forward to having you back soon, maybe for your birthday?

Best,
Nancy and Bill
