While you may not be able to stay in one of the famous mansions of Newport, this is just as special. This was one of the earlier mansions and sits on a prominence of land that overlooks the channel, to the ocean beyond…amazing. The woodwork and vintage feel of the hotel itself is to be appreciated…the bar was wonderful. I... More

We had a tasting menu here which was wonderful. The view is to die for, and the food is fantastic, as is the service. I can't say enough good about the CHI.

We went in hopes that the lawn portion of the restaurant was open, but it was to early in the spring season. Thankfully they took us in (jeans, flip flops, and all)...after all it was lunch time and off season. The food was good, but typically over priced...mainly for the amazing view. I'm glad we went and got the experience,... More

We simply cannot rave about this place more! We heard about it through our friends who got engaged there a few years ago and everything definitely lived up to our expectations if not exceeded them. We ate at both Castle Hill & Bouchard on our trip and Castle Hill knocked Bouchard out of the park! The thing I loved most... More

On our final night in Newport last week we dined (yes, "dined", not "ate") at the Dining Room at Castle Hill Inn. Dress here is business casual, but I must say that I felt most comfortable that I wore a jacket. It's just the kind of place where you WANT to be dressed well, because the setting and the servers...

I was at Castle Hill for a business event. I made the fortunate decision to order the lobster roll. I’ve had lobster rolls 40-50 times in my life. But I have never had one as amazing as the one at Castle Hill. In addition, they served a Cole slaw that was totally unique and totally amazing. I want the recipe.
