Wonderful B&B. Definitely #1 of Newport B&B. There is a very interesting history to the house. It is beautifully decorated. I stayed in the Sun Room where I could sit in the window seat watching the ocean for hours. It was chilly out and the gas fireplace after a long walk was perfect. The shower was to die for. Programable...

It was lovely having you and your friend stay with us. It made me smile to see how excited you both were about everything in the house and its history. The Sun Room is quite sunny, as the name suggests, but what a better way to wake up! We look forward to seeing you again soon. Best, Nancy and Bill

Stayed over the Easter weekend in early April. Service was excellent, breakfast was delicious and our room was very spacious and comfortable. My wife and I enjoyed the history behind this B&B which we found very well kept and clean. We enjoyed the evening wine and appetizer hour especially after walking the full 6 mile cliff walk; only 200 yards...

It was a lovely Easter weekend. We are thrilled that you enjoyed your time at the inn and the Grosvenor Suite. We love being so close to the Cliff Walk. A sunrise walk, a sunset walk or middle of the day - it's always beautiful. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and look forward to seeing you again....

Amazing stay at Cliffside Inn!. My mother and grandmother purchased a gift certificate for my husband and me as a Christmas/ Anniversary present.

My wife and I stayed here for here for a short getaway in the beginning of the week in April. She found it listed as number one B&B on tripadvisor and, after doing some more research, booked it. We were not disappointed. The house itself was very beautiful and in line with the feel of Newport itself. It is situated...

Stayed in the blue room on the second floor for three nights in April. Loved the window seat and the gas fireplace that we used frequently. Nancy and Bill are very lovely hosts and the breakfasts we delicious. The Cliff Walk was right down the street and we walked to the Breakers one morning. Definitely will be back.

Cheryl, It was wonderful having you both here at the Cliffside Inn. I love making New Jersey connections. We really enjoyed our chats during the wine hour and hope that you will make it back up to Newport soon. The flowers still are resisting blooming. Maybe daffodils next week?

During the last week in January, we stayed 4 nights at the beautiful Cliffside. There was a storm with blizzard like conditions and lots of snow.

My fiance and I stayed here after getting engaged this January. This Bed and Breakfast was beautiful. We stayed in the upstairs room that had a fireplace, a king size bed, and french doors opening into a beautiful bathroom with Jacuzzi tub that probably could have fit three people! I loved this place and would definitely go again.
