We stayed at crows nest for the Newport half marathon, and were pleasantly surprised to see the amazing location once we arrived. They are situated right in bowens wharf, near many great restaurants and bars. Shopping was everywhere...
The rooms were neat and cozy, beds were amazing. The only downside was sharing the bathrooms, but even that was not as much of an inconvenience as we thought. I loved that the building was full of history. Check out the chapel and the library....if you are looking for your standard hotel experience , this isn't it. No TVs, not many amenities, no little shampoos or hair dryers. This was much more a of a bed and breakfast type facility. Cute and unique.
We will definitely be back!!!
