We stayed in the Turner Suite. It was beautifully decorated, Victorian style. Also had skylights, a window overlooking the ocean, a fireplace, 2 flat screen TVs and a gorgeous bathroom with a two person tub. Breakfast was amazing. Location is a short, one minute walk to the Cliffside. Great service.

Anya, What wonderful comments. Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. The Turner Suite is a great room and (in addition to all the things you mentioned) I love the soothing color blue it is. I hope that next time you can spend more than just a night with us. Best, Nancy and Bill

We stayed here for two nights and had a wonderful, relaxing, and peace-filled time. The hosts, Bill & Nancy are so pleasant, as is everyone who works at the Inn. They helped us out choosing restaurants, and even made a dinner reservation for us. They wanted to do anything possible to make our stay perfect. Our room was Turner Suite,...

We just returned from an incredible weekend at the Cliffside Inn. The Inn is immaculate, the Sun Room was everything you could ever imagine at a B&B, the social hours were done with class, the breakfasts were delicious, every detail was attended to, and Nancy and Bill were excellent hosts. The Inn is perfectly located and an ideal get away...

We were pleasantly surprised with the Cliffside Inn. The staff was so nice and friendly. The inn is clean, comfortable and so relaxing. Great location by the cliff walk. We even woke up from a peaceful sleep as the bed was comfortable, to a wonderful homemade breakfast when we went downstairs. Did I mention the wine reception the night before?...

We stayed two nights at Cliffside in January and enjoyed the classic Newport experience combining the cliff walk with a couple of the mansions and some good food in between. The room was the St George Suite which was on the third floor and had views over the bay. It is fairly small for a suite and the sitting area...

Thank you for all of your lovely comments about the St. George's Suite. Being in an old Victorian, we sometimes have to get creative with space. The enormous shower in the bathroom is usually a highlight for anyone who stays in that room. I know it was a last minute booking. I hope you will come stay with us again....

My sister and I didn't know what to get our 89-year old mother for Christmas. We knew that this Christmas would be especially difficult for her (and all of us) because we just lost my dad last December. A weekend away at the Cliffside Inn was the PERFECT gift!

Certainly one of the best B+B's we've ever visited. Lovely attention to detail, from the beautiful grounds to the well renovated house with great woodwork to the wide variety of fun books to read to the slow-close toilet lid. Breakfast was tasty, fresh, and well presented. One caution is that we get excited about fireplaces and in our suite, it...
