“A beautiful escape!”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

We are Rhode Islanders who do quite a bit of traveling. It's great to have a beautiful retreat just a short drive away from our home, where we can go to truly relax without the hassles associated with airport travel.

We've stayed several times at the Inn, but this was the first time we stayed in a cottage. It was perfect in every way! As always, everything was immaculate and the appointments were first class. The cottages offer an element of casual charm. It's so relaxing to be right on the beach and to drift off to sleep (in the very comfortable bed) with the sound of the waves crashing on the shore.

The staff is extremely friendly and helpful from the time you drive up 'til the time you check out. The food is delicious and there's a nice selection of wines. The recent upgrades to the outdoor space as well as the addition of a bar make the CHI even better than before. We will be back for another escape soon! We highly recommend this beautiful Relais & Chateau property!

Room Tip: We stayed in the Nautilus Cottage. Very charming!

This inn is a classic, set on the perfect point overlooking Newport harbor. We stayed here with our fare rewards award and it could not have been better. The woodwork throughout the inn is beautiful and our upgraded room was huge and well-appointed with a marble bath and gas fireplace. The bar downstairs is very nice too, although the drinks can be a bit skimpy. The dining room has one of the best views for breakfast or dinner that you can imagine.

Room Tip: Ask for a harbor view and sit back and relax. We stayed in #10 on the top floor.

Castle Hill is truly a magical place. I've been there twice for drinks and dinner. However, I can't say much about the rooms because we did not stay there. The restaurant and bar are beautiful. The staff is very nice and the service is great. One of the best sunsets I've seen. I highly recommend this place for dinner and/or drinks. I wouldn't consider staying there because the location isn't the best.

My wife and I stayed at the Castle Hill Inn in Newport, RI this past week and can not say enough wonderful things about this exceptional property. The expansive property has rooms in the original inn (former private mansion) as well as rooms in cottages around the acreage. We stayed in a room at the Beach Cottages which are located directly on the ocean beach. Outstanding. The room was beautifully decorated with a large window facing the open sea. The bathroom was huge and nicely appointed. Fortunately the weather was delightful and we were able to sit out on the deck and enjoy the breathtaking views. Service was outstanding. From beginning to end everyone was helpful and gracious. A full breakfast is included and is served in the formal dining room in the inn. A nicer setting would be hard to find.

Room Tip: Considering the variety of accommodations offered, it appears that you would be satisfied with any a...

We spend a night at castle hill inn during their off season as fare rewards members. I only hope we can do this for many more years to come...it is a special place.. We arrived on a very cold wintery day but with a fireplace and heated floor,,, who cares? Only minus was being unable to use our deck which was full of winter..! Dinner was Outstanding... Ambience very romantic. Breakfast in the morning is legendary....enjoy this jewel any time of year!

Room Tip: We have stayed in the beach cottage and beach house. Going for the Private beach cottage next year...

The room was beautifully decorated and the fire place made it a cozy stay in winter. Great service, friendly and attentive. Excellent dinning and great location for teatime. It was pity that the 'Lawn' was covered with snow. My wife and I will plan to come back again in the summertime.

My wife and I attended a special guest chef event at the Castle Hill Inn this past weekend. A part of our event included an overnight stay.

First, the event was super. It featured a guest chef from New York who specializes in Portuguese cuisine, paired with special wines from Broadbent Vineyards. It was super. The service was top notch.

Our guest room in the Inn was beautifully appointed and we enjoyed a commanding view of the Newport Bridge and Narragansett Bay.

Breakfast the following morning was again terrific - both our meals and the high caliber of service.

Frankly, for a mid-winter visit to Newport, there was truly no room for improvement.

Room Tip: Ask for the Bridge Room - it is not the most expensive but certainly felt like it was.
