The Drive into the Castle Hill Inn property created expectations of perfection and that is exactly what we found. The Mansion sits on a Bluff overlooking the Harbor of Newport where you see the lights from the Bridge in the distance The entire staff is warm, welcoming and very knowledgeable about not only the Inn but Newport in general. Our room was in the Mansion and was fit for a queen.. The oversized Soaking Tub in the tiled bath was just what I had been hoping for plus the sounds of the Fog Horns in the distance added mystery and intrigue. The breakfast selections were absolutely delicious and enjoyed on the porch outside where we watched the sailboats exiting the yacht basin. Initially disappointed that our room was not available for our second night's stay we were instead given the BEACH COTTAGE.. Well...How lucky we were as it turned out to be the most comfortable little getaway with a stone fireplace, four poster King sized bed more comfortable than you could imagine.. PLUS very large bathroom (again with an over sized Whirlpool tub) kitchenette and a porch right on the beach. Cannot wait to return..again and again!!! Being a kid at heart I walked the beach finding sand dollars and sea glass at sunrise.. It just doesn't get any better anywhere!! and....afternoon Tea was a delight!
