While looking for wedding venues we found the Ocean Cliff and immediately knew this was it! Our wedding was perfect! The views are amazing and the staff was incredible. Our guests occupied the majority of the beautiful guest rooms. After our reception many guests enjoyed a relaxing time in the Safari room. I can't say enough about this venue. A...

An evening of pre wedding celebration. We had the Safari room for our families to meet and greet each other. Lovely room, friendly staff and a beautiful setting. Take the drive out before the sun sets. A beautiful ride and driving up to the venue is just as lovely. Go out on the back deck and see the views and...

Stayed for a wedding. Very beautiful place. Wedding was amazing. Very expensive. But that's to be expected in Newport in July. Our room was adorable. A bit far from the center but a great location for a wedding or romantic get away. Not really recommended for children.

We attended a wedding reception at Oceancliff last month. Since we knew the setting was beautiful, we decided to have a mini-vacation and spend the night after the reception. We booked a deluxe king room. The room did have a king size bed (on a squeeky metal frame - not the sleigh bed advertised) but we never found the "deluxe"...

The property is quite incredible, and what a beautiful venue for a wedding. Sunset over the bay during dinner was the perfect touch. If this area is an option for a wedding - you'd have to put it on the short-list for sure. Food was very nicely done. Wait staff was plentiful and top-notch. We arrived a few hours before...

Spent a night here as part of a Valentine's Day package and couldn't have enjoyed ourselves more. Ashley from the front desk was so sweet and super helpful in getting us a new room even late in the evening. The special valentine's day menu at the Safari Room was excellent and our server Matt was friendly and personable. The rooms...

Location is excellent, beautiful views overlooking the ocean. Great rooms for wedding photos, spacious, well lit, beautiful fireplace added ambivalence to a chilly, windy Saturday afternoon and evening. Waitstaff courteous, very attentive; food was very good and served very timely. Enjoyed immensely.

I had my wedding at OceanCliff during January, I was so excited because it was such a unique place to hold a wedding, and the views were STUNNING from the ballroom. It rained on my big day, and I was understandably upset, but OceanCliff made everything perfect still, from the WONDERFUL staff, to the great food and drinks, to the...

We went here for a wedding in January. We did not stay here overnight. The grounds were well kept and the views of the ocean and the sunset were breathtaking.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
OceanCliff Resort was designed and built in 1864 by the architectural firm Peabody & Stearns from Boston who designed the original Breakers and Doris Duke's Rough Point both located on elegant Bellevue Avenue. A wealthy industrialist and member of Mrs. Astor's 400 Club originally used OceanCliff as a private summer residence during the Gilded Age. The estate remained a private summer home until 1954, when it was sold and later converted into an oceanfront retreat to host lavish parties and society affairs. Located on 10 acres of rolling lawns with spectacular ocean views, OceanCliff offers a truly unique blend of breathtaking beauty, world-class cuisine and a professionally trained staff to ensure meticulous attention to every detail of your stay. Twenty-four distinctly stylized guest rooms whisk you back to the 19th century with modern conveniences and stunning oceanfront views. OceanCliff's grand ballroom accommodates from 75-250 guests for dinner and dancing, while a variety of smaller rooms allow for more intimate gatherings. Set amidst the breathtaking splendor of the Narragansett Bay, OceanCliff has inspired generations of brides with some of the most enchanting landscapes in Newport, Rhode Island. Whether you prefer a romantic summer sunset celebration or a unique winter white wedding, OceanCliff offers a variety of wedding and reception options. OceanCliff is located on historic Ocean Drive with easy access to downtown Newport and is only a 90-minute drive from Boston and Hartford. ... more   less
