This was my second visit to the Castle Hill Inn and I can not say enough great things about this very special hotel/inn. From the sleep number beds...to the jacuzzi bathtubs - from the cozy fireplaces...to the espresso machine in the room - it is quite a treat to stay here. We have only stayed in the "supreme beach cottages", so I can't say anything for the other accomodations...but the cottages are AMAZING. They are tucked away from the main building and are right on a private beach. You can hear the ocean at night, and have your own little deck overlooking the beach. While we have only gone in the December months, I can only imagine how beautiful it would be during the summer. It is a yearly treat that I very much look forward to making a tradition for my husband and I. Very, very, very romantic.
We ate at the Castle Hill restaurant for the first time over the weekend and while I was absolutely happy with my meal (I had the three course pre-fix for $75 and had the scallops followed by the lobster), my husband would have preferred we go else where for the price. I didn't mind, though. While expensive, you get your money's worth. The hotel staff are increcibly professional and and friendly and if you are lucky, you will be sat in the cozy dining room to the right of the main dining room - which is much more intimate and boasts its own fireplace!
Breakfast is included and for an extra $10 per person, you can have it delivered to your room - which is what we do! There is nothing like rolling out of bed, putting on a fluffy white bathrobe, and sitting down in our room for breakfast...all the while looking out over the coastline. I had the pancakes and they were DELICIOUS!
We returned home last night and I am already dreaming of our visit next year! Do yourself a favor and stay here! It is pricey, but well well worth it!
