Thank you so much for a wonderful and memorable stay; we were all delighted with Cliffside, in the snow and out of it, the welcome was everything we could have wished for, we truly felt at home. We will have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone heading in the direction of Newport, RI or New England and have no doubt you will see us again. I have told everyone of the delight of your evening reception, the canapés and wine and the chance to get to know you, your staff and our fellow guests. Thank you so much for our box of almond chocolates, a lovely surprise; they will be 'not so slowly' devoured…! We have never stayed at an Inn or B & B before where we actually wanted to go back there to sit in the lounge and enjoy a bottle of wine as if we were at home, which we did, log fire crackling away in the background.

Thank you, thank you, thank you. Comments like that really make us happy that we do what we do. It was really lovely to get to know the three of you. There are no more hors d'oeuvres at the Cliffside Inn, only canapes! Just as good and easier to spell. We look forward to sailing out of the Sussex Yacht Club sometime soon, now that we are honorary members.

Thank you again for your stay and for your kind words.

Fondly,
Nancy, Bill and Koty!

My husband and I went to spend a long weekend away from the kids and what a wonderfully, relaxing time that we had! The Breakfasts were great and all of the staff was very nice and super knowledgeable and helpful about fun spots to see in the area. We were made the feel welcome by everyone there, and we loved all the special touches! We can't wait to go back!

The Cliffside Inn surpassed all of my expectations. Nancy and Bill along with the rest of the staff are extraordinarily warm and welcoming as well as extremely professional. Everything, from the outstanding breakfasts (crab and gruyere omelets, cinnamon roll pancakes, etc.) to the beautiful bedroom suites, was perfect. I would recommend the Inn to anyone looking for a relaxing and inviting stay in Newport.

I decided to surprise my boyfriend for his 40th birthday. He asked for a relaxing romantic quiet getaway in Newport and we couldn't have been more happy with the Cliffside Inn. The innkeepers (Bill and Nancy) and the rest of the staff helped to make this one of our best weekends ever. I can't say enough about the hospitality and care we felt from the moment we walked through the door. They even had a birthday cake waiting in the room when we arrived. We stayed in the Garden Suite and it was incredible! We can't wait to back when it's warmer and enjoy our private patio. We were only there for 2 nights but wished we could have stayed longer. We are already talking about when we are going to go back. Thank you Bill, Nancy and Staff for all your recommendations and hospitality!!!!

P.S. The breakfasts were incredible! The cinnamon roll pancakes were the best pancakes I've ever had!

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. The patio off the Garden Suite is even nicer in the warm weather with the fountain on! We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay and chose the Cliffside Inn for your boyfriend's birthday.

We hope to see you back when the weather warms up.

Best,

Bill and Nancy, along with the members of their staff, were fabulous hosts. The property was lovely and the other guests were very pleasant. We received great recommendations about specific sights and restaurants and had fantastic time. I highly recommend the Cliffside Inn if you're looking for a memorable experience.
