the best view in all of Newport . Very professional; they don't mess around here. They know exactly what they're doing . Costly, but worth every penny. Get the lobstah roll ! & don't forget to sit in the Adirondack chairs for some after-meal cocktails!

We had booked a superior beach cottage and were given number 21. It was a gorgeous big room with bed, sofa, comfy chair, wardrobe, ceiling fan, kitchenette, microwave, fridge, butler sink, crockery, coffee m/c (no kettle), bathroom with a large shower, separate spa bath, all in New England decor of whites and blues. Super fast free WiFi throughout the property... More

Thanks so much for your review and your return visit. I was delighted to learn that you enjoyed the enhancements we have introduced since your last stay with us. The launch shuttle is becoming very popular and we plan to continue it on weekends until early October; the service is daily during the summer months. Please join us again soon!... More

First thing you have to say about Castle Inn is the location. Sitting on spectacular hill at the top of Newport nestled in among mansions, overlooking Newport Harbor, the bridge, Jamestown and the north end of Narragansette, you can just sit in one of the adirondack chairs sipping a rum, IPA or a glass of wine. We had been before... More

Dear William: The view from the Harbor House rooms is very private and special. You're only steps away from our Grace Kelly Beach, a small rocky inlet where she was able to enjoy the sea away from the paparazzi (they had them even back in 1955 when High Society was being filmed in Newport). Looking forward to welcoming you back... More

absolutely stunning location for a Newport wedding! Unfortunately it rained the day of the wedding so we were not able to enjoy the outdoors as much as we had hoped. The bride/groom had set up outdoor lawn games for the guests to enjoy during cocktail hour, which was great! The view of the harbor was magnificent! I was able to... More

My wife and I returned for our anniversary to the the Castle Hill Beach Cottages. Last year I mentioned a few smaller issues with the room and management responded that they would be remedying each of them. Well I pleased to say that have! The previous screen doors to the porch have been replaced. The kitchenette was stocked with plates,... More

This is a quaint, pricey hotel to stay beachside at Newport in the summer. Once there, the place is exquisite. There were many marriage ceremonies/receptions taking place over the Independence Day weekend. Traffic back and forth through Newport is congested. But, that's summertime in New England I suppose.

Dear Wally: Many thanks for staying with us over Independence Day weekend. You're correct - it is our busiest time of year, both at the Inn and in downtown Newport. Traffic can be congested, so we introduced a marine launch shuttle service between Castle Hill and the Newport Yachting Center downtown. It's offered daily until Labor Day, and the 25... More

Love to sit in the chairs on the lawn, drink a fresh Mimosa and watch the boats go by! This is where doing nothing is really doing something! Staff, Inn, restaurant, rooms, all top notch. We try to come every year at least for luncher dinner, if not the weekend. They never disappoint.

I cannot thank Castle Hill Inn enough for giving my husband and I the very best get-a-way for our 10 year anniversary. Every single staff member we encountered was gracious, friendly, courteous, and helpful! Your beach cottages were nothing short of amazing and beautiful. Even though the weather was pretty awful for our stay, the setting made it all ok.... More
