Just finished our 3 days at the Cliveden Inn and I have to say it was wonderful. The Cliveden Inn is so centrally located that you park the car and dont have to drive until you leave. It is a short walk to the beach, mall and all dining! Sue and her staff make the Cliveden Inn one of the...

We stayed at the Cliveden Inn for three nights in April and enjoyed the experience so much that we'll book our return visit for an entire week. The main reason for choosing the Cliveden was that it is dog friendly. We stayed in the Cliveden's cottage for more room, privacy, and dog isolation. For us the cottage is perfect; it...

We were in Cape May on the off season, so many of the B&B's were closed. We just started walking down Columbia street and came to the Cliveden Inn. After ringing to door bell we met the most lovely women, Helen, who invited us in and made us feel welcome. Our room was comfortable as was the bed, we slept...

Although we've been to Cape May many times over the years, this is the first time we traveled with our dog. The Cliveden offers a couple of rooms on the first floor that have plenty of floor space to park a dog crate, and Helen and Peggy were both fantastic about meeting our dog, even though we would have kept...

My husband & I frequent B&Bs often....well, a little less now that we have a child & one on the way! But this quaint home is just the perfect solution to beat the hustle & bustle of the city/suburbia. Centrally located, its a few blocks away from the beach & the shopping area of Cape May. Hands down, this is...

After spending years trying to convince my husband to stay in a B&B, he finally skeptically agreed. I expected controversy and complaint from someone who's used to five star hotels, but to my surprize, he loved it! This was our first and I made sure to research for features such as value, ideal location, pet friendly, clean, hospitality, full homemade...

We with my wife spent last weekend there due to our romantic gataway.

Hospitality is 5, breakfeast is good, thought no meat. They providing rent of bikes and beach accessories included into room...

I absolutely love staying at the Clividen Inn. I have been visiting Cape May for many years and would not want to stay anywhere else. The first moment I saw Room C I was taken by its charm and Victorian decor. The owners have become dear friends over the years and I feel blessed to have found such a place...

If I was asked to tell in a word what my favorite thing about the Cliveden Inn is, I would have to say " In A Word, Everthing." My wife and I have stayed at the Cliveden Inn 19 times since 2001, twice a year since 2003. There is just something about that Charming old home that once you are...

We stayed in the Cliveden Inn for a weekend last fall. We were in a room on the second floor, #3 I believe. I wish I had known about TripAdvisor at the time. The room looked attractive in the photo, but in terms of comfort it left much to be desired. The mattress was the most uncomfortable thing either my...
