The people were friendly and very accommodating, the room (Atlantic suite) was very clean, the design and feel of the room was well worth the cost (amazing bathroom, great fireplace, kureg coffee maker in the room, AC and heat worked well, etc.), the food was excellent at breakfast, LOVED the outdoor fire pit, and the location was perfect (not in...

Avery, Thank you for your kind words and for taking the time to write such a lovely review of the Cliffside Inn. We are big fans of the fire pit as well, although it is getting a little chilly now to stay out there too long. Hopefully, we will have you back here again with us soon. Best, Nancy and...

We have stayed twice at the Cliffside Inn and can't wait to return. The first time we stayed was more than a decade ago and it is was an unforgettable magical stay. The owners were so kind. So beautifully decorated.

My wife and I stayed here for our honeymoon, and we have nothing but great things to say! The location was great and the room was beautiful. The staff was very accommodating too - we couldn't arrive until well after the check-in window, but the owners pleasantly accommodated our late arrival. When we got to our room, rose petals were...

It was the first time my husband and I have ever stayed at a B&B so we weren't sure what to expect. The owners (Nancy and Bill) and staff could not be any friendlier.

Wonderful staff, beautiful rooms, clean, great location! We were there for an anniversary celebration. Came back from dinner and a member of the staff put a heart decoration on our bed along with a card and handwritten note congratulating us! Very nice touch! Breakfast was delicious (homemade granola is "like dessert" as another guest described it). The chef gave us...

Judy, Thanks to you and Dennis for spending your anniversary with us. We are so glad you enjoyed the Grosvenor Suite. When you make the granola, don't forget to stir it as soon as it comes out of the oven - otherwise, it's like glue in the pan. We look forward to having you back with us again. Best regards,...

My wife and I decided to celebrate my birthday in Newport. My wife searched for B&B's in Newport and came upon great ratings for the Cliffside Inn.

Cliffside Inn offers an excellent breakfast each morning as well as a 5;00 appetizer and wine hour. Rooms are clean and beautifully appointed. Did have a little issue with enough hot water in the shower. Turn down service happens while you are off to dinner.
