My wife and I made spur-of-the-moment decision to book the Tower Room at the Cliffside by phone. Bill was very accommodating and the room was booked using our AAA discount. We took in The Elms mansion before checking in (see separate review) where Debbie graciously showed us the inn and to our room. The Tower Room is attached to the...

Robert, What a lovely review! We might want to use that room description in the future. We're so glad you and Christine decided on a last minute trip to Newport. People think of it as a summer place, but it is really beautiful all year around. You are not too far away from us, so we hope when you need...

My wife and I took a trip to Newport to have a small weekend getaway before the baby we are expecting arrived. Bill & Nancy were so accommodating, hospitable, and so knowledgeable about the town and surrounding area. We had breakfast each morning at the Inn, took a walk along the Cliff-Walk, which is right at the bottom of the...

Bill and Nancy really know how to make you feel welcome. This was my first bed and breakfast, and I was a bit nervous. After this great experience we are excited to make another trip back. The food was excellent as well.

Stayed here for our anniversary. The inn is so beautiful and everything is very well maintained and clean. The innkeeper (the owners were away during our stay) was very friendly and helpful. We stayed in The Loft room which was fantastic, equipped with a king-size bed, whirlpool tub, rain shower, and a fire place! They knew we were celebrating, so...

We enjoyed our stay at Cliffside Inn! The Inn is beautiful and has some very interesting history. We stayed in the Carriage House, which has a private entrance and was very comfortable. We really enjoyed the two-person jacuzzi tub and romantic fireplace! Breakfasts are homestyle and hearty, and there is always the option for eggs if you do not like...
