This was my third visit to this beautiful property in New Castle NH; we had previously been here last Thanksgiving with my son and daughter-in-law, and before that on a two-day winter get-away. [disclosure: I spend up to 360 days a year in hotels for work, mostly staying at Marriott, and am a M/R Platinum Lifetime member]. This historic property... More

Well, I have lived in NH for most of my life and the last two visits to this property remind me of all the reasons why this type of property does not fit in in NH. My husband and I went to Portsmouth for the day last weekend and stopped by here to enjoy a cocktail on the Latitudes deck.... More

A grand hotel by the sea on the beautiful cost near Portsmouth. An old place very nicely renovated and updated by Marriot. The rooms are most comfortable, with very good taste decoration, and include all amenities. Of course, one must request a sea view room to enjoy the superb panorama. Excellent and discreet service. (The rates also follow the standard... More

Just spent three days at Wentworth with a business offsite. The staff, food, hotel and facilities were outstanding in every respect. The hotel went out of their way to make us all feel like a home away from home. I look forward to bringing my husband to visit for a vacation.

My wife and I planned a quick overnight trip just to get away from things. We left our jobs in Boston early that day and drove with the traffic to get there as quickly as possible. Now I had planned a lengthy review, but in the end it doesnt matter. The pool was closed down by the time we got... More

We stayed at this property in early June, celebrating our 25th anniversary. It is a great piece of history, as is all of this part of the country. Our villa, a marina suite with harbor view was excellent. Service at check in was good after a bad day of flying in. We arrived late at night, & were worried that... More

We recently spent a pleasant couple of days at the Wentworth by the Sea, our first overnight stay at the hotel. I had requested an early check-in, but our room wasn’t ready when we arrived at about 2pm. The clerk wasn’t especially friendly, but did offer to look for another room. We chose instead to return later in the afternoon.... More

This hotel is a winner. It's a Marriott Hotel & Spa by Portsmouth, New Hampshire, however it has a New Castle, New Hampshire address. Although it's a very old resort, the Marriott has done a superb job of making it look like new inside, without destroying the original charm. Everything from the friendly staff, the restaurants and rooms were great.... More

Love this place! 3rd visit in 4 years...this one was for a combo Mother's Day/Anniversary weekend celebration! We had a beautiful room in the main hotel (I have to admit I really like the marina suites the best) and as usual felt like we had stepped back in time to the days of the grand old hotels!

Fantastic Hotel on the tiny island of New Castle - just a short cab ride/drive to the vibrant coastal city of Portsmouth, NH. Gorgeous water views, excellent service, first class all the way, with quiet rooms and great restaurants. Convenient to all the New Hampshire/Maine coasts have to offer. Find it!!! Stay here!!! It's just lovely!
