We really enjoyed the Beatrice room, wine at 5pm, and our host Bill was very informative and helpful. If you are looking for a charming, updated B&B, this will do the trick. Our room was as advertised in the web site and we got to read all about Beatrice Turner the artist who spent her whole life living in this...

I think we are all thankful that winter is over. The Cliff Walk is open with no snow anywhere and even a few daffodils trying to peak their heads out. Thank you for the wonderful review. I'm thrilled that you enjoyed your time at the inn and that everyone took care of you in my absence (not that there was...

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.

Congratulations again to you and Jacob. We are so happy that you picked the Cliffside Inn for your engagement. The Loft is perfect for that - so private and cozy. We are looking forward to news about the wedding. Best, Nancy and Bill

It is difficult to write any more superlatives that are already included in other reviews. This is the challenge. My husband surprised me with this lodging. I knew we were going to Newport to a B&B but I didn't know where. This two-night stay at the Cliffside Inn was how he chose to celebrate my 80th (oh, no) birthday. It...

Wow, what a wonderful review. Thank you so very much. Of course, we love what we do, but when we see reviews like yours, it really makes it all worth it! We are so happy you enjoyed both rooms.

My wife and I just regretfully returned home after one of the most memorable getaways in our 20 years together. If my review seems too good to be true, then you have not yet stayed at the Cliffside Inn. Just for purposes of fair comparison, I have been fortunate (not wealthy, mind you, just lucky) to have stayed in many...

We stayed in the tower room. It was immaculate. The amenities were great. The fireplace was fantastic. We were treated like long-time friends. The inn is beautiful. The breakfast was delicious. We have no complaints whatsoever. We thoroughly enjoyed our time.

The Cliffside Inn was impeccably clean and had all the amenities of a 5 star hotel. This B & B went above and beyond our expectations. Loved the history of Beatrice Turner, a fascinating woman. The inn keeper, Bill was so gracious and informative on Newport. We look forward to staying there again.

So glad that you enjoyed your time at the Cliffside Inn, as well as the Cliff Suite. The Beatrice Story is truly something unique. I'm always surprised that her story and her art are not more well known. It was a pleasure having you here and we look forward to a future visit. All the best, Nancy and Bill

We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay in the Beatrice room. That window seat really is delightful and a great way to spend a relaxing winter's day. I miss the holiday decorations!
