The Cliffside Inn is the perfect place to stay in Newport! It has the perfect combination of modern luxury and comfort and old world charm and hospitality. You get the comforts of a five star hotel with the extra little touches in service that you would only find at a B&B. It also has free parking. The location is great - steps to the cliff walk and walking distance, about a mile, to Thames St area. We walked to dinner. The Inn has a wrap around porch with tables. We were able to enjoy breakfast and coffee outside one morning. The new owners recently did a major renovation on the whole place...including amazing new bathrooms! We recently stayed in the Blue room and loved it. The room was very clean and spacious enough for us, bathroom was beautiful and spotless and the bed was super comfortable. Bill and Nancy are a sweet couple and they really make you feel welcome and at home. In fact, everyone who works there and even all the other guests we met were so nice. It was our first visit to Newport, and we didn't really have our weekend planned out, but Bill was so kind and helpful with his info and suggestions. He was spot on with all of his dining recommendations! The breakfast they served at the Inn was delicious too! Nancy even offered to share the recipe for the Morning Glory dish. The wine/tea time they host is cute. The wine and hor dourves were a tasty treat. Overall we had a wonderful time and really enjoyed our stay. It is a top notch B&B. We found all the amazing reviews on this place to be accurate. We hope it stays as excellent and look forward to staying there when we visit Newport again.

We are so pleased that you chose the Cliffside Inn for your 10th wedding anniversary. It was great to have you here and share some of our Newport experiences with you. The Blue Room really is quite charming and cozy with the fireplace and the bay window sitting area. Chatham is not very far from here and we do hope that when you need another relaxing break you will come visit us.

All the best,
Nancy and Bill

My mother and I stayed at the Cliffside for two nights in May. We stayed in Beatrice's Room and it was absolutely fabulous! Nancy and Bill are wonderful and so welcoming! They gave us great recommendations for sightseeing/dining in Newport and just made us feel so at home. The Cliffside is very easy to get to and there is generous parking right outside the house, which is great if you are carrying heavy luggage. The breakfast each morning was top-notch - from the fresh pressed coffee to the delicious homemade muffins! Nancy and Bill have truly thought of every detail and it really makes the experience so fun and special. We will definitely be bringing our family back to the Cliffside again soon!

How great to have you both here and learn about our shared legal/King & Spalding connections! It was wonderful to see the two of you sharing a short holiday together and would love to have both of your husbands visit us on the next trip.

Warmest regards,
Nancy and Bill

Had to be at Roger Williams University early on Friday morning to help my son pack up his dorm room and decided to treat myself to a night in Newport first. After an afternoon of shopping, I checked in to the Blue Room at the Cliffside Inn. The room was beautiful - window seat and all. The Cliffside Inn has managed to offer a step back in time via the beautiful decor yet offer what many of us consider "must haves" in 2012 (like a flat screen TV in the room). We were treated to a lovely spread of scrumptious stuffed mushrooms, cheese & crackers and gourmet home-made, thin-crust pizza between 5:00 and 6:00, which I ate out on the porch before I set out for my two-hour walk on the Cliff Walk (just steps from the Inn!) The bathroom was brand new, yet did nothing to take away from the Victorian feel of the room. Wish I could have stayed longer but will definitely return!

It was really great to have you here and I too wish you could have stayed longer. You were up and out even before breakfast - it must have been a big move! I am glad you had the opportunity to enjoy a little of Newport, and of course, the Cliff Walk. The next semester is just a few months away and hopefully you will be able to spend some more time with us.

All the best,
Nancy and Bill

We recently spent our 20th Anniversary at The Cliffside Inn and it couldn't have been a more wonderful experience. Innkeepers, Bill and Nancy, really made you feel at home with the upscale surroundings, fresh pressed coffee every morning, gourmet delicacies, and the little personal touches that an experienced B&B could offer. You really have to experience it for yourself and once you do, you'll keep going back...just like we will!

Allison,

It was wonderful to have you both here and to be part of your anniversary celebration. That was a great weekend, and one of the first that guests were able to sit on the porch for breakfast! I know you two enjoyed it too. What a great way to start the day. We appreciate all of your comments about the inn and look forward to having you back with us soon.

Best,
Nancy and Bill
