We stayed at a small beach cottage over Easter this year. Whilst we loved many things, we had a bad nights sleep and could hear all our neighbours nightly activities. I wrote to Brian, the manager and in June we decided to give this hotel another try. It has taken me a long time to write this review as I...

My husband and I indulged in a 3-night stay to celebrate my 40th birthday. I was so pampered I was glad to be turning 40! From daily tea, to wine on the lawn and amazing breakfasts and dinner, we loved it! We stayed in the turret suite and loved every minute of it (even when the view was fogged over)....

Stayed 5 nights here before moving onto New York - it was supposed to be our relaxing time. Instead we filled our time with trips into Newport, the excellent food and hospitality at Castle Hill Inn, 2 Segway trips (see other review for Newport Segways) and finished by cruising Newport harbour on the Hinkley motor-launch housed at the hotel -...

In April of this year, my boyfriend and I stayed at the Castle Hill in in one of the beachside cottages. It was a fantastic experience! It was a very nice, clean room right on the water. The main inn was just a short walk away. We were very impressed with the service—everyone was willing help with any request. It...

Magnificent location.... Tired rooms..... Very costly for a resort that basically offers only a view! No pool, no exercise room , no tennis courts! The Lawn Dining is open to the public . Make a reservation ahead of time and enjoy a few hours of visual beauty. Our room was tiny, our porch was filthy and the chairs provided for...

My wife and I vacation in Newport every summer. A few weeks ago we decided to treat ourselves to the Clambake at Castle Hill Inn. If you are thinking about doing it - change your mind. Although the atmosphere was stupendous, the waiter service was infrequent and the food was nothing special. At $95 a plate you expect better. Even...

We didn't stay here, but I was dying to have brunch on The Lawn after seeing it advertised. And it did not disappoint! They weren't serving food on the actual lawn that morning, only at the tables overlooking it, but it didn't matter. The views were spectacular, food delicious, and service top notch. My fiancé said his meal (the special...

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. A Relais & Chateaux member and recipient of Forbes Travel Guide Four Star Award. ... more   less
