... Steve and Julie (reminder: our captain and chef) had had enough and decided to leave on the spot. They packed their bags and off they went. Well, I cannot explain the mix of emotions I had then, and since then. As a yachtie, things took place after that which would NEVER happen in the yachting world, e.g. the owner's wife cooking dinner for her guests in the galley (crew area), the owner taking Andy and myself provisioning (he ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Castle Hill Inn Newport
Spent 4 days here with my husband. The views of Narragansat Bay are simply spectacular, especially the sunsets.
The food rivals any gourmet restaurant in NYC or Boston.
Service was exceptional. Stayed in the Harbor rooms and it affords much privacy. This is an expensive Inn but well worth the price just for the seclusion.
Wonderful location - fabulous dinner
We visited Castle Hill Inn for dinner at sunset to celebrate a special birthday. It was fabulous!
The location on the point overlooking the ocean was heavenly. We sat in the adirondeck chairs and enjoyed wine -- we felt like billionaires !! Then, we went up to the Inn for dinner. The combination of the location overlooking the ocean (with poetic sailboats going by) with the sunset view, the fabulously presented and yummy dinner, the elegant dining room, and the first-class service will provide special memories for years to come.
Appetizers for two, dinner, and dessert, along with tax and gratuity (no drinks) came to a little over $100 -- not bad for such a special evening.
Don't miss dinner here!
Castle Hill Inn is the best B&B I've ever been to. I haven't been to many, but I cannot imagine any being much nicer than this.
Just got back from our spring vacation. The only complaint we had was the weather. It was windy , rainy and cold. But, we still had a great time.
Castle Hill exceeded my expectations
We spent two nights in the Chalet Suite#3, a separate building from the main Inn but just as lovely. We stayed on a midweek package that offered a terrific value, it included 2 nights lodging, champagne in our room, tickets to tour a Newport Mansion, a high tea, a 3 course dinner, and breakfast all for under $500! The staff was extremely professional and pleasant, the service we received at the front desk, the afternoon tea, dinner and breakfast was excellent. The food is absolutely outstanding, very inovative, with fantastic presentation, and a great wine list to match. This is a very relaxing resort, with breathtaking views of Narragansett Bay. We highly recommend Castle Hill Resort and look forward to a return visit.
My boyfriend and I recently stayed here for two nights at very reasonable prices, thanks to their great last minute savings. On the first evening, we stayed in East Room 3, one fo the two most affordable rooms in the main inn. This room was incredibly gorgeous with amzaing amenities, such as a double whirlpool tub. They even included two award-winning chocolate chip cookies and instructions on how to send up two glasses of ice cold milk!
My husband and I spent the last weekend of January at the lovely Castle Hill Inn and Resort. I was celebrating my birthday and the inn made it one of my most memorable ever. We were given a last minute rate on one of the beach houses. These are beautiful units directly on the beach with full ocean views, king size beds, large Jacuzzis and fireplaces. If you ever wanted to know what it's like to own a beach home this is it! Each unit also has a full equipped kitchen, CD sound system, living area with distressed leather furniture and lovely seaside furnishings. These units are not by the inn but just down the hill and each has a wonderful private beach deck. Breakfast and Afternoon Tea are available back at the inn. We decided to have breakfast in our room and it was delivered by van in a big picnic basket. The room server set it up for us right next to the terrace. In warm weather he said guests usually ask for it to be set up on the private deck over looking the ocean. Full Breakfast and Afternoon Tea are included in the rate. The staff was incredible. Any request was filled with a smile. They went out of there way with attention to every detail. If I were ever doing the hiring for a hotel, this is exactly the staff I would try to find. The dining room is stunning with dramatic ocean views. We did not eat there so I cannot comment on the food and service. The Breakfast and Tea however were excellent. . I can only imagine how even more enjoyable a warm weather visit would be. The beach house rooms are quite expensive during the summer but worth it. However for the more budget conscious (like me), an off-season visit makes this an affordable luxury.
We enjoyed a January one night get away at this beautiful inn. The service is outstanding--friendly and professional. Our room in the Harbor House was modest in size but nicely decorated. Dinner was a delight and our room rate included an equally enjoyable breakfast. The prices for the rooms are very high, even off season. The Inn was very quiet and the majority of rooms were vacant. The property itself is set high on a hill with sprawling grounds and views of the ocean everywhere. A perfect setting for a romantic treat.
Charming, restful hotel
Recently stayed at Castle Hill Inn for a company meeting. We were in the Harbour rooms which are small, but very comfortable 'chalet type' rooms away from the main house overlooking the harbour. Although the rooms in the main house are bigger, since they are all located very close to the dining area and main bar they could be noisy if large parties are at the hotel. Our room was very peaceful, especially at night with only the ocean lapping on the little beach below. The plumbing however does take some getting used to! Food was good, especially breakfast and you must partake of the afternoon tea which is served in a cosy corridor of the main house by a delightful lady who takes great pride in her 'tea room' Altogether a very relaxing experience.
Reliable friends told us not to miss having lunch or dinner at the Castle Hill while in Newport. So off we went. After touring the houses, the inn was quite charming. Not so the meal!! After reading the interesting menu, I was looking forward to a "gourmet burger" with gorgonzola cheese and sauteed onions. After all the shellfish I'd been having, a burger was just what I needed! My husband ordered an Asian scallops dish - which was wonderful. The waiter was friendly and happy to share all sorts of info on Newport. I wish he'd been as happy to be a good waiter! Slow with our initial drinks order, slower still with our appetizer, he seemed forgetful about any request. My burger finally arrived (tables seated after us were actually finishing their meals), well-done, not the medium rare ordered. A request for the wine list was seemingly forgotten until the food was served. I never thought about sending my meal back - I'd have been there till dinner! In his favor, the waiter did remove the charge from the bill - however, it would have been a great burger if cooked properly!The inn sits on a lovely property - I'd give it another try, even stay there next time. I'd just avoid that waiter's tables!!
