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! We visited for 2 nights in October and I have been debating whether to write this review as it is hard not to write a perfect...

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. I'm glad you were able to enjoy the breakfast...

My boyfriend and I recently visited the Cliffside Inn to celebrate our third anniversary. We were expecting great service from all of the reviews and we truly received the best care!!

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.

My boyfriend and I wanted to get away from the hustle and bustle of things and go on a retreat nearby. Given the excellent reviews, we decided to book a four day, three night trip at Cliffside.

Like with every home, sometimes things go wrong. We hate it when that happens here, but we are glad we could take care of it quickly and make you happy. It was great getting a chance to meet both of you. I hope Eric gets a chance to visit you again soon so we can have you both back here....

We stayed in the Turner Suite. It was beautifully decorated, Victorian style. Also had skylights, a window overlooking the ocean, a fireplace, 2 flat screen TVs and a gorgeous bathroom with a two person tub. Breakfast was amazing. Location is a short, one minute walk to the Cliffside. Great service.
