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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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.... More

Our accommodations were excellent. The room was beautifully decorated, extremely clean and comfortable. The view of Newport Harbor was just beautiful. The service and staff was excellent.... More

We had booked the #1 listed Hotel in Newport on TripAdvisor and once we drove up to the hotel and walked into our room, my wife and I said, this is not Castle Hill. #1 Hotel was nice enough to refund us, and we then immediately drove over to Castle Hill to book a chalet room, our favorite cozy room...
