Reviewed 26 February 2014

My husband and I celebrated my birthday with an overnight at Castle Hill Inn in Newport R I. We stayed in one of the Harbor Houses, which are oceanfront, facing the Newport Bridge. Our accommodations were excellent. The room was beautifully decorated, extremely clean and comfortable. The view of Newport Harbor was just beautiful. The service and staff was excellent. Our room included a delicious gourmet breakfast, in the oceanfront dining room, in the exquisite main inn. We absolutely loved staying here and hope to return soon.

Room Tip: Harbor houses are beautiful with wonderful views

We had booked the #1 listed Hotel in Newport on TripAdvisor and once we drove up to the hotel and walked into our room, my wife and I said, this is not Castle Hill. #1 Hotel was nice enough to refund us, and we then immediately drove over to Castle Hill to book a chalet room, our favorite cozy room off the main building. Warning. If you do stay in one of the two chalet rooms, make sure to ask if they have a private party planned during your stay. The staff is usually on top of letting you know, but make sure you ask.

The majestic views, historic architecture, helpful staff, fabulous food and overall classic elegance makes Castle Hill a default romantic getaway for us. Yes, the building, furniture and rooms could use some updating, but you can't deny the romantic feeling that the grounds and staff provide. We hope to head back to Castle Hill on our next romantic getaway. Thank you Castle Hill.

We couldn't have had a better experience here. We stayed in a beach cottage, and it was the perfect size. Right on the water, really nice finishes in the room, and heated floors made it a cozy weekend trip in the winter.

The thoughtful handwritten note from the manager referencing our upcoming wedding there was a sweet touch, and the room service delivered in blizzard conditions was delicious. Oh and the cookies. Let's not forget the freshly baked cookies by the bed.

Room Tip: We loved the beach cottage.

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 was very sad to say goodbye.

Room Tip: Beach Cottage room, you can see the sun rise

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!

Just returned from a two night stay in one of the beach cottage rooms at the Castle HIll Inn. From the moment we arrived until the moment we left we enjoyed everything about it! The staff is amazing friendly and accommodating. Prior to our arrival they even sent me an email listing various things to do in the area and restaurant suggestions. Had breakfast there both mornings and the food was wonderful. Attention to small details makes the difference and CHI certainly delivered on that! We will definitely be returning!
