How it Ranks: Castle Hill Inn ranks #2 out of 38 Newport Hotels based on an evaluation of expert ratings and awards, as well as user reviews.
Our Take: Once a summer "cottage" to a wealthy scientist and explorer, Castle Hill Inn is now one of the most exclusive collections of accommodations in Newport. The Inn and surrounding beach cottages are decorated with an aristocratic charm typical of the seaport's mansions, with perks like a private beach and complimentary breakfast and afternoon tea. Cottages feature cool blue, green, and yellow tones reflective of the natural seaside setting, and come furnished with high-end amenities, like plush Frette linens and rain shower heads. But what continually wins over guests are the stunning scenes of Narragansett Bay and the surrounding coastline. Recent visitors say the vistas are best enjoyed from the Inn's Adirondack chairs perched on the lawn. Previous guests also rave about the delectable cuisine served at The Mansion. The only potential drawback lies in the location; the Castle Hill Inn sits about three miles outside of town, so you'll need a car if you're planning lots of sightseeing. On the upside, if you are a member of Relais & Châteaux' Club 5C, you're eligible for free perks, such as complimentary room upgrades.
