My family and my brothers stayed in the main house. Both he and I are not necessarily your typical B&B patrons. We both enjoy the privacy of a hotel most of the time. But, the Castle was perfect because you could still have your privacy while enjoying the other aspects of a B&B. As others have stated, nothing fancy about... More

Friendly staff, clean rooms and beautiful setting...what more could you ask for! The rooms are not fancy but are simple and comfortable. Updating the rooms would be a big plus but it's still probably the nicest available on the island.

Came down with two other couples. We stayed in the three bedroom villa. Plenty of room and nice bathrooms. Very friendly staff. Ronnie was very nice during checkin. They have bikes available to rent but had rented a golf cart. The hotel is in a quiet area of town. The pool was a nice feature as well. I would stay... More

I have been staying at The Castle for many years. It truly is the nicest place to stay on the island. With our Villa rental we also have use of a beautiful pool and there are also many bicycles to choose from. Ronnie is the sweetest lady to have waiting at the front desk to welcome us.

The B&B is wonderful. The staff is friendly. The breakfast was for a king and queen. The rooms are cozy and filled with antiques. Loved climbing the stairs to take a view from widows walk. A beautiful sight to behold!! At pier side you could sit and watch the sun set. Ocracoke is a magical place!!

Great attention to the small touches that make B&Bs memorable. Very pleasant staff, clean comfy rooms and delicious breakfast. You feel like you're staying at your grandparent's beach house, complete with the smell off coffee, bacon and pancakes drifting upstairs in the morning. Would highly recommend to guests on the older and younger side. Walking distance to everything in town.

The pillows were terrible and when we asked for others we were told that no one else had complained and that the units were individually owned so they could not take pillows form other units. the bed was OK.

My husband and I are here for our anniversary and we love it. We are staying in the lake room which has a beautiful view as well as a huge jacuzzi. They have a very friendly staff and the smells from the kitchen are amazing. Ocracoke oozes with charm and southern hospitality. I could stay here forever.
