I cannot put into words the amazing customer service, all the staff and how everyone went out of their way to make our stay extra special. We stayed in one of the Beach Cottage rooms. Amazing pancakes and great spot for afternoon tea. The Castle Hill Inn truly does ensure their guests feel like Kings and Queens and it is... More

Service was outstanding. Relais & Chateau standards met and exceeded! All food superb. Try the filet. For breakfast, try the cinnamon pancakes. Did I mention the service was warm, friendly, and attentive? Beach cottage was very nice. Ocean 20 feet from terrace. Superb location and highest quality restaurant. We'll be back!

I wrote a review of this property back in September, 2013 and it was not favorable. The hotel manager, Brian Young, personally invited my daughter and I back for another stay, assuring me that this time, we would experience the Inn the way it should have been experienced on our first stay.

We we there during Restaurant week, which had a special menu. We really enjoyed our dinner there, as the food was very good (selected courses from a priced fixe menu). The food itself was delicious, although the portions were a tad smaller than I would of liked, and the price was expensive (especially for the amount of food). The service... More

We came to stay here for a weekend and loved it. We stayed in the main building, and the panelled bedroom exuded character in a way that was a real delight. The staff were endlessly attentive and nothing was too much trouble - even setting up afternoon tea for us in front of the roaring fire in the hall. The... More

we stayed here during the Newport Boat show. It was convenient to the downtown, but far enough away to feel like it was on its own island. We stayed in the cloister room, which was absolutely beautiful. The outdoor dining area spectacular, but service wasn't great, nor the loud guys having too much to drink next to us. We also... More

I booked one of the cottages near the main house as a surprise birthday getaway for my girlfriend. Considering the price, my expectations were pretty high. But after opening the door to our room for the first time, I was blown away. The space was bright and crisp, well appointed, with huge windows overlooking the water. Open the french doors... More

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.
