We stayed in the Garden Suite which was very comfortable. It had an interesting spiral stairway to a lower level floor that had a two person hot tub,, large 3/4 bathroom and a private patio with a waterfall. There was also a sitting area with a variety of books. We enjoyed the book that divulged the history of the inn...

You are quite right, the Garden Suite is not handicapped accessible. In fact, the inn has only one room that is, the Victorian Room. If you ever come with someone that needs it, that would be the only room that can handle a wheelchair or a walker and for which you do not have to climb any stairs. Luckily, you...

We have been to Newport RI many times and have never stayed at this beautiful B&B. I can say we will return soon. What a treasure. Right near the Cliff Walk and the beautiful Atlantic Ocean. Upon walking up the laterned stairs to the beautiful wood door entrance…you enter and feel at peace with the world. Such a lovely Inn....

Thank you for the wonderful review. It was lovely having you here to celebrate your anniversary. Looks like you've got your next visit all planned out. Any of those rooms will be a great choice, although the uniqueness of the Garden Suite is hard to copy. We look forward to having you back soon. Best, Nancy and Bill

Newport has always been a favorite spot for my husband and me. We have stayed in 3 other locations in the past and although they were nice nothing compared to this! From the beautiful rooms to the breakfast to the tub, did I mention the tub? I love the fact you are seconds away from the cliff walk. The owners...

We spent one night in Newport (after all, that's really all we can afford!) and stayed in the Garden Room here in May. Room-Exquisite attention to detail. I LOVED the heated floor, spacious tub, spiral staircase, and private outdoor patio. The two floor feature of this room is especially nice when you're looking for privacy, yet space. The amenities were...

We spent a wonderful few days at Cliffside Inn and would highly recommend it. The innkeepers and their employees are very friendly and helpful.

Cliffside borders access to the Cliffwalk and easy walks through the Mansion District, which is great. The Happy Hours and the breakfasts are delicious and fun ways to meet the hosts and other guests. The bedroom was charming and comfortable, with a nice ensuite bathroom. We recommend it!

We spent a couple days at the Cliffside Inn to celebrate our anniversary just after Labor Day weekend. We stayed in the Turner Suite which was beautiful, comfortable and clean. Breakfast was delicious and the late afternoon snack with a glass (or three) of wine really hit the spot. The location was great, just steps from the cliff walk, and...

We appreciate your thorough review of the Cliffside Inn. It is always a struggle for us when it comes to the furnishings. We try to balance keeping to tradition with modern conveniences. Unfortunately, the Victorian style was not build with a lot of drawer space. We do have some rooms with more drawers space and we'd be happy to discuss...
