We had our wedding reception at Castle Hill Inn on July 27. I can not say enough wonderful things about the facility and all of the staff. It was a semi rainy day but they truly pulled off a flawless events. We could not be happier and can not wait to go back for our 1st anniversary!

First thing you have to say about Castle Inn is the location. Sitting on spectacular hill at the top of Newport nestled in among mansions, overlooking Newport Harbor, the bridge, Jamestown and the north end of Narragansette, you can just sit in one of the adirondack chairs sipping a rum, IPA or a glass of wine. We had been before...

Dear William: The view from the Harbor House rooms is very private and special. You're only steps away from our Grace Kelly Beach, a small rocky inlet where she was able to enjoy the sea away from the paparazzi (they had them even back in 1955 when High Society was being filmed in Newport). Looking forward to welcoming you back...

absolutely stunning location for a Newport wedding! Unfortunately it rained the day of the wedding so we were not able to enjoy the outdoors as much as we had hoped. The bride/groom had set up outdoor lawn games for the guests to enjoy during cocktail hour, which was great! The view of the harbor was magnificent! I was able to...

This is a quaint, pricey hotel to stay beachside at Newport in the summer. Once there, the place is exquisite. There were many marriage ceremonies/receptions taking place over the Independence Day weekend. Traffic back and forth through Newport is congested. But, that's summertime in New England I suppose.

Dear Wally: Many thanks for staying with us over Independence Day weekend. You're correct - it is our busiest time of year, both at the Inn and in downtown Newport. Traffic can be congested, so we introduced a marine launch shuttle service between Castle Hill and the Newport Yachting Center downtown. It's offered daily until Labor Day, and the 25...

Love to sit in the chairs on the lawn, drink a fresh Mimosa and watch the boats go by! This is where doing nothing is really doing something! Staff, Inn, restaurant, rooms, all top notch. We try to come every year at least for luncher dinner, if not the weekend. They never disappoint.

I cannot thank Castle Hill Inn enough for giving my husband and I the very best get-a-way for our 10 year anniversary.

My husband and I first discovered Castle Hill in 2000, after our first trip to Newport. It was love at first sight for me!

Breakfast is always on point, and...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Dynamic and breathtaking, Castle Hill Inn promises an exclusive, luxury experience for each guest who visits. The property's 40 acres offer everything from panoramic water views, and rustic hiking trails to private beaches and hidden rocky coves. In summer, guests come to unwind and enjoy the Newport social scene that gathers on the Lawn, which slopes from an elegantly restored 19th-century mansion out to Narragansett Bay. During cooler months, Castle Hill becomes more of a private retreat, perfect for escapes from city life but still close to the amenities of downtown Newport. Year round, the property also boasts world-class dining that showcases the best of Rhode Island's seasonal bounty, Castle Hill's extraordinary setting only becomes more beautiful with each turn of season, and we do our best to match its brilliance with unmatched service for our guests.
