My husband and I just returned from our stay at Cliffside Inn in Newport, Rhode Island. The Inn itself is magnificent. The staff is extremely pleasant. The breakfast is delicious and well beyond my expectations. My personal favorite was the Lemon Ricotta Pancakes -- YUM. They serve french pressed coffee (my personal favorite). In addition, I really enjoyed the 5pm wine service. I am admittedly a wine snob so my expectations we're not high. However, the Cabernet they served was fantastic and they had a beautiful array of snacks to go with it.
My husband and I stayed in the Garden Suite. The Garden Suite is beautifully appointed. We loved the room and the tremendous whirlpool tub. We didn't like the spiral staircase in between the two, but that's probably more a statement to our age then anything else. Being over 50 we're both getting up to use the facilities in the middle of the night. I didn't like having to walk up and down the spiral staircase in the middle of the night, but that is no reflection on them. There was a fireplace in our bedroom as well as in the bathroom. Very romantic. There was also a private little garden off of the bathroom with a small waterfall. This area though very sweet was very small.
The inn and rooms were immaculately clean!
I really enjoyed the location of the Inn. It is right off of the cliff walk and away from the hustle and bustle of the more touristy area of Newport. However, you can walk to downtown in no time at all. There is also a public beach a very short distance from the Inn which is accessible from the cliff walk.
Long story short... I would stay there again and highly recommend it to friends and family.
