What an amazing place to stay! We stayed in the Carriage House, comfy, cozy, clean & the bathroom suite (it's that pretty) has an amazing double sink. The main house is 30 steps away and you will be welcomed with a fine pot of tea or French Pressed Coffee. Great breakfast choices for all. The 6 mile coastal walk is...

Ahhh yes, the winter of 2015...so happy that we can now look back on it, rather than be in the middle of it! It seems like we had an entire winter of record snow and cold in 6 weeks. Thank you for the great feedback on your stay with us. Nancy and I love what we do (so do the...

Thank you for your review and your thoughtful comments. It is always a pleasure to welcome back familiar faces! Eight stays with us...and in seven different rooms, we love it!.

If a picture is worth a 1000 words, I'm posting as many as I can so you can really get the feel of this remarkable Inn. In one word…GO! Choosing any other place in Newport for your stay is settling for 2nd best, at best. I'll keep this short & sweet b/c the only reason you really read the reviews...

Thank you so much for your review of the inn. It was lovely having your family with us and we are so happy they enjoyed Newport. I wish you had mentioned the bed while you were here. Each mattress has a pillow top on it. We could have removed it and make the mattress firmer. But we are thrilled that...

We had an amazing two night stay despite the frigid weather. St George's Suite was beautiful with the biggest shower we have ever seen. As soon as we entered the B&B, we felt welcomed and at home. The "cocktail hour" was a relaxing time to meet other guests, and enjoy wine and snacks. Bill and Nancy share interesting stories of...

We had a wonderful Valentine's weekend. I chose the inn based on the reviews. It really was enjoyable and relaxing just as I hoped it would be.

Prior to our visit, I spent a great deal of time researching places to stay in Newport, and the Cliffside Inn seemed like it would be the perfect place - it was very close!

Mike, Thank you for all of the wonderful comments that you made about the inn. The service should not be any different regardless of whether we are here or not and I'm sorry that you felt it lacked something. Indeed, the individual you dealt with is no longer at the inn.

The Inn is beautiful and located steps away from the Cliff Walk. We stayed in "The Loft" and it was beautifully decorated and the huge whirlpool tub was relaxing and wonderful. We loved the Cliffside so much that we purchased a gift certificate to give as a wedding gift to our very close friends.
