From the moment we checked-in to the moment we checked-out we couldn't have received a higher level of customer focused professionalism, with attention paid to each and every detail. While the Inn itself was one of the most beautiful we have stayed at in Rhode Island, the service was excellent. Our room was comfortable and cozy and although we ventured...

We spent three nights at the Cliffside Inn with friends who had recommended the B&B. The common space and bedrooms are superbly renovated blending the old and the new down to the finest detail. The hosts and team are attentive to every detail and the breakfasts are excellent and nutritious. The afternoon tea, after a day of touring mansions, was...

Once again we were welcomed to this spectacular B&B by the owners Bill/Nancy and their ever efficient staff. Their chef creates marvelous gourmet breakfasts and lovely afternoon wine and hors d'oeuvres. There is no need to set your alarm for breakfast as you can smell it being prepared early on. We invited another couple to meet us in Newport for...

The Cliffside Inn is a gem! The house has been beautifully renovated to retain its original charm. We had reserved the Blue Room but ended up needing a room on the first floor, and Bill graciously accommodated us. Both rooms were tastefully decorated, clean and comfortable. The gas fireplace was perfect for the cool rainy weather, and the breakfast and...
