My husband and I stayed at Castle Hill in the Agassiz Mansion in East Room 3 this Friday and Saturday evening. We were pleased as punch with the service - everyone seemed to bend over backwards to make our stay enjoyable and memorable. The room itself was small but not cramped, and both comfortable and beautiful as can be. We ate at Castle Hill on Friday night, and the food was delicious (have the shrimp appetizer). On Saturday, we made our way to Spiced Pear, and while the food was excellent, the service there could not compare to the service we received at Castle Hill. Breakfast at Castle Hill is also delicious and was included in our price per evening.
Do be aware that in inclement weather (we had rain all day Saturday and Sunday!) the lighthouse fog horn may sound. For us, this was a surprise and on Friday evening, an unwelcome addition to our stay. The next morning, when we inquired about the noise that kept us up all night, Jenny explained it was the fog horn, and gave us earplugs for Saturday evening (the fog didn't lift until late Sunday afternoon). My recommendation: if it looks like rain, ASK for the earplugs when you check in so you avoid the experience we had!
All in all, our experience at Castle Hill was a memorable, beautiful time. I would wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone.
