Castle Hill represents the best of Newport, and New England . Fantastic direct ocean views, wonderfully designed rooms and suites, five star dining and wines, as well as personalized service that borders on perfection. This is a Must Stay for anyone who does not settle for anything less than the best. Enjoy.

Newport is one of our haunts so Bouchard is a local fav. We usually do couples dining here. It's a bit pricey for our youngins. If the weather is cooperating, definitely dine al fresco. It's a lovely view and most enjoyable. Love all of the seafood dishes, though they serve everything, and they do it well.

The multi-course meal is spectacular. Each item is complex and sourced locally. The appetizers were excellent, with the carrot and goat cheese dish being our favorite. The halibut was light and tender. The chocolate cookie souffle is fantastic.

Enjoyed a sandwich and salad lunch at the Castle Hill Inn. Not the cheapest in town, but a lovely location, and a very comfortable room.

Had a beautiful and delicious lunch in the lovely dining room. Since the weather had become cool no service was available out on the lawn. However we did not miss the opportunity to walk out on the lawn and down towards the water. Take a moment to sit on an Adirondack chair and soak in the crisp air.

Our expectations for a deleicious dinner did not come true. We had 2 appetizers and 2 entries. 2 out of 4 were really good but the sword fish entry was very dry and shrimp appetizer was just plain bland. We felt we wasted $250

Worth the price for a special occasion. Outside brunch is the best. Drinks are also delicious. Very good wine list.

Stopped in for lunch after our visit to the lighthouse. We both had the spinach & orzo salad with lemon-pepper chicken, delicious! My husband also had the white bean and chorizo soup which he told me to find a recipe for because it was great!

Beautiful place with amazing scenery. I'm guessing this is the reason why most guests go to this place. Secondly, the service was not as high as you would expect for the price point we paid. To clarify I should say that our actual server was great. Very pleasant and professional- no fault with her. It was the staff around her... More
