The 5 star rating is for the location alone, amazing, right in the centre of everything Newport has to offer. As two couples we stayed in suite 3, half way down the wharf, with two very clean, double bedrooms and a small living space/kitchenette. Nothing too fancy but comfy beds and a good shower, all you need. Only warning - watch your head on the low, characterful stairs and ceilings. The rooms at the end of the wharf looked even better, right on the water, with fantastic views onto the ocean and a great little seating area and coffee shop, need to book early to get these! We walked out from our room onto the hustling wharf which is littered with brilliant busy restaurants, bars, outside patios, coffee shops, fresh fish bars and shopping areas. We thought we were very lucky to get a parking spot in this busy area included with our room for our entire stay, also right on the wharf. The owners were a little hard to find at check in or checkout, but by asking around people in the restaurants and dock office were very helpful and pointed us in the right direction. As young people, pretty relaxed and calm, we did not find this stressful or disorganised of them and appreciated the owners as busy working people and we thought it added to the chilled out nature of the place. If I returned I wouldn't stay anywhere else, fantastic weekend and very affordable compared to surrounding lodgings! Thank you Bannister's Wharf for a fantastic birthday weekend to remember.
