Situated on sprawling hilltop acres overlooking the Hudson River, the main tower of Castle Hotel & Spa forms the highest point in Westchester County. Castle Hotel & Spa is a medieval-style structure that was meticulously transformed into a luxury hotel, offering guests royal-quality service, luxurious guestrooms, and the award-winning Equus restaurant which features Auberge-style, natural French-inspired cuisine. The luxurious new THANN™ Sanctuary Spa is an oasis of peace and tranquility where a holistic treatment approach aims to rediscover inner physical and mental wellness. Only 25 miles north of Manhattan, Castle Hotel & Spa opened as a luxury hotel in 1997; 16 years after being designated a historic landmark.

We chose the Garden as it is much brighter and the windows were nice even in February. our service was very polite and well paced.

What happened to this beautiful establishment? The food was still pretty good. But, the service was just awful. It's sad because this place was a gem.

A group of co-workers and myself decided to go to Equus for brunch. Reservations were made. We were told dress was business casual and if there were any no shows there would be a $25.00 cancellation fee. Also brunch started promptly at 11:30 and not to be late. All in all the food was good, atmosphere was excellent but service... More

Five of us dined here between Christmas and New Years 2015. The restaurant was not full but it took them 15 minutes to seat us.

Everything on the menu that I tasted was delicious and beautifully prepared and presented. The croissants rival those prepared in Paris! The foods are purchased from local Hudson River farms.

The restaurant is lovely and the service impeccable but the food fails to meet the same standard. Our lobster appetizer was tasteless and a disappointment.
