Welcome to the Cliffside Inn, the most luxurious bed and breakfast in Newport, Rhode Island.  The Cliffside Inn is an oasis of elegance, nestled in the heart of the historic district, just steps from the Cliff Walk, and a short walk to the historic mansions, Easton’s Beach and Newport’s restaurant and shopping districts.  Our Newport RI bed and breakfast has earned an international reputation for excellence, and has been named New England’s most romantic inn as well as Newport’s top inn by TripAdvisor.  Guests at our romantic Newport inn enjoy 5-star hospitality, a celebration of fine cuisine, and an attention to detail that has made the Cliffside Inn one of Newport’s most sought after destinations.

Our 16 rooms at the Cliffside Inn seamlessly blend deluxe amenities — jetted tubs, spa showers, fireplaces, antique beds, Aveeda® amenities and fine Italian linens — with a refined Victorian elegance. The inviting common rooms, tranquil wrap-around porch, colorful perennial gardens and romantic outdoor fire pit invite you to relax, recharge, enjoy a cup of tea or glass of wine, and make new friends or reconnect with old ones.

The Cliffside innkeepers are Newport “insiders”, and will help you make your visit to Newport an enchanted getaway, filled with memorable experiences.
