Sometimes a single visit isn't really characteristic of the actual accommodations. This was our second stay at The Castle - and it was even better than our first wonderful stay (you can look up my other review). We stayed in Katie's room again. We enjoyed the jacuzzi again. We grabbed a bottle of moscato and some bruschetta from Zillie's and...

Sounds like ya'll did it up right while you were here: wine, sunsets and a whirlpool tub are ingredients for a wonderful stay on Ocracoke Island. We especially appreciate that you are a repeat guest and hope that you will come back often to see us and have some more of Miss Gladys' biscuits! Thank you for your kind review.

So, we were in the Harbor Room, a nice big room that is fully finished in wood with with excellent joinery and detail. The views were spectacular and the building made our imagination wander to the times of sail...that these accomodations would be fit for a captain (if he were ever to be ashore). The morning breakfast was great and...

My fiance and I fell in love a year ago while camping on Ocracoke and we went back and stayed at the Castle in July. The location is perfect, very close to the center of town and at night we walked across the street to the dock overlooking the water with a glass of wine. It's a quick bike ride...

We are glad you came back to our island and decided to stay at The Castle.

We had so much fun at The castle. Our every need was met, and the staff went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable. We were on a 2 week tour of Eastern NC, and a restful stop at this property was just what we needed. We especially enjoyed taking a bottle of wine across the street...

I think you must have stayed in the Castle Villas and my guess is you were in The Net House. The Castle Villas are made of up 1, 2 and 3 bedroom individually owned condos, while the b and b is owned by a small, local company. Villa guests have access to the same amenities as the guests of our...

We rented three villa suites for two nights, and were very happy with them. Loved the decor, very clean and comfortable. Staff was very friendly. Only thing would be that in the rooms that had the window A/C units - it was VERY muggy at night. Things in the room were practically damp in the morning. BUT, the unit we...

Very nice location, close to everything and very clean. A little pricey in my opinion but worth it for the view, location, great breakfast and friendly atmosphere. Free bicycles were a plus, the deck over the dock was great to sit on and watch the sunset and the pool out back was nice if a little small. Plenty of parking...

My recent stay at The Castle rates among the best vacations I've ever had. This hotel is elegant without being prententious, courteous without being officious, and beautiful without being precious. The landscaping is gorgeous. The perfect beach hotel. The staff was so nice and courteous. Every time I encountered the woman who worked at the desk, she gave me a...
