The Cliffside Inn is a wonderful and charming retreat in Newport.
My wife and I stayed in the Cliff Suite, which is located in the Seaview Cottage, a short walk across a beautifully landscaped lawn to the historic building housing the main inn. The suite features a nautical theme and was both spacious and immaculate. The king-sized bed was extremely comfortable, ensuring a good night's sleep. The climate control system worked perfectly and was also very quiet. The inn is only steps away from the majestic Cliff Walk and in a quiet and secluded residential area. There is no need to be concerned about street noise here.
The breakfasts were a real treat. I especially enjoyed the bananas foster French toast and eggs benedict, which was kindly modified for me for medical reasons. Their cook is very talented and creative. If you prefer not to eat the special that is prepared for breakfast that day, they will gladly make you bacon and eggs (and their bacon is of a much higher quality than what you get elsewhere). Rounding out the breakfast offerings were crunchy and satisfying homemade granola, fresh muffins, and mixed fresh fruit. The breakfasts could not have been better.
The owners, Bill and Nancy, and the staff were very welcoming and friendly. They all exhibited genuine warmth. They clearly love what they are doing and care about their guests. Their detailed knowledge of the local area enables them to provide most helpful suggestions for dining and sight seeing.
If you love comfort, class, clean, and cozy, this is the place for you. We most highly recommend the Cliffside Inn and look forward to our future visits.
