“Girls Fall Weekend”
Reviewed October 28, 2013

We stayed in one of the condominiums and we had a marvelous weekend. The staff was very friendly and helpful. They recommended great restaurants and the dinner we had at the Castle was great! The spa was fabulous and we went swimming in the outside heated pool and it was very relaxing.

I had stayed at this hotel several times over the last 20 yrs - under various ownership. I must say since the Castle Hill purchased it, it is well run, nicely appointed and made for quite a pleasant stay. Desk staff was very helpful, room was clean, and it was a nice 2 night stay. Close to Okema and all the nice breakfast spots in neighboring towns.

My husband and I enjoyed our fall foliage weekend getaway when staying here for two nights this past weekend. We got the Groupon for a two night stay, and the price was much more economical than any other regular rate we could find online within a 50-75 mile radius. The front desk was very friendly upon check-in (Jean, I think), and the staff later in the evening was happy to provide us games to play in our room which we took advantage of.
A couple of things that would have made our stay better - if the pool was open a bit later and if we would have been able to get a king room, but we did book somewhat last-minute.
With some of the comments not being all positive, we weren't sure what to expect, but the rooms were very nice (somewhat standard, but very well appointed and nice color scheme with decorations). Mini fridge with Keurig (though my husband had some difficulties and just filled his cup at the front desk the 2nd day). The mini fridge was the neatest I've ever seen with the eliminated light and I enjoyed the Aveda products in the bathroom. The beds were comfy, and pillows even better - we slept well here (good blackout curtains if you position them right). Our room did face the highway and we couldn't hear any cars passing by.
We spent one morning in the hot tub and pool and enjoyed that, but wish we would have been able to spend time in the neat, (heated!) outdoor pool up at the Castle. We checked it out one night and was hoping to return the next day, but it closed at 7:45pm (we didn't return to the hotel from driving around NH and VT until after that). We originally had reservations for dinner at the Castle, (which we heard was great), but we had to cancel because our driving took us all over back roads of NH & VT and wasn't going to be able to make it back in time. We enjoyed a few places in town to grab a drink and have dinner, so we didn't feel like we missed out on too much.
There was a drop-in yoga class on Saturday morning I was contemplating going to but missed, and I would have loved to have had a facial or massage at the spa, but it just wasn't in the cards for this stay.

The room was perfectly nice and the front staff did their best to accommodate us. The castle above is a must see; the rooms are beautiful and carefully renovated.On the other hand, I do not think the food there is a good value, even with the coupon. Within two miles there are better options.

We had a triple A coupon. so this was a good value at $79 midweek. My complaints are small: the first being that the hotel is right on a highway, so the whoosh of traffic is always there.

Nice facility, location, grounds. Could be a great destination if there is more emphasis placed on hotel security, cleaning, housekeeping, and general management processes and procedures. Great location in between Manchester and Woodstock. Be sure and see Woodstock.

Room Tip: Our courtyard view suite was that of looking at another wing of the hotel. Ask specifically about v...

We stayed at The Pointe in a very nice King room. It was quiet, comfortable and clean. Parking is all around the building with keycard access from several doors for convenience. The best part was being able to use free of charge the pool, sauna, health club, yoga classes and tennis courts at the top of the hill at Castle Hill. We took our car up the hill but many people walked the steep driveway. The people were friendly, and the pool very quiet. Several children were with parents who really kept them quiet and there was NO running around bothering others. There was even a private place above the pool surrounded by trees for coupes to get a little private time while sunning and being close to a cooling swim. Excellent behavior was expected. We were there in early August and few people at the pool made it very enjoyable. Many people said that Castle Hill's restaurant was very good but quite pricey. The grounds are very well maintained and the service excellent.

Check in was quick and easy. Room was clean and pleasant. Great location. We had the room at the end of the hall and based on other reviews I was nervous about the noise. But it was fairly quite. We were barely at the hotel so I can't comment on the amenities as we didn't use them. But a keurig and fridge in the room was an added bonus. Overall, worth the $100/night price from groupon
