“A wonderful start to the New Year!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 February 2012

My husband and I have been visiting (and loving) Dartmouth for the last couple of years. We absolutely love spending New Year there, however staying at The Crow's Nest has definitely been the most welcoming stay to date. We usually don't return to the same place twice in terms of accommodation as we like to have new experiences, however, we will surely return here. It's quirky, cute, beautifully kitted out and so very welcoming. The hosts are just fantastic- chilled yet highly efficient, a perfect combination! If you're looking for a relaxing, homely place to rest your feet, a stone's throw from the river, this is it. There's a lovely bathroom (as opposed to a tiny en-suite), with every last detail to suit your needs. There was gorgeous bubble bath and toiletries, fresh milk in the fridge, mince pies (it was December!) and a mobile number to hand should we need anything. It was so flexible without having breakfast here, as there are many, many cafes to sit and enjoy breakfast at, without a time being dictated. We stayed in the family room, which was great even without children! The bed was comfortable and as soon as we walked out the front door we were already part of the bustling streets of Dartmouth. It's especially convenient after a good meal and a bottle of wine, not far at all to walk back! The Apprentice restaurant is a very short walk from The Crow's Nest, highly recommended. As I said earlier, the hosts were just great. The kind of people you could share a cup of tea with and feel like you've known them for years! We especially loved the family photo area as you walk up the stairs, it tells a real story of their lives together through the generations of their family- this is a personal touch you would never get in a hotel! A big thankyou to Alan and Val. We will surely return. Best wishes, Sally and Dean Jarrott.

Room Tip: The family room is great, even for just 2 of you.

A very warm, friendly welcome from Alan, a perfect room with absolutely everything we could have needed. We have both stayed in many hotels and B&Bs over the years and agree that The Crow's Nest beats most of them for service, comfort, value for money and welcome. The owners have used their own experience of staying away from home to ensure that every need is met for their guests. Highly recommended!

Room Tip: We stayed in Cabin One - double room at rear of property.

I had the pleasure of staying here for a short break last weekend and can thoroughly recommend the guest house for anyone visiting the town. The host was attentive and provided a full welcome brief. The room was very comfortable and god attention to detail

We stayed in the family room at the Crow's Nest for 2 nights this weekend for a wedding, and it was perfect. The rooms are private from the family house, and they have everything you could ever want (or need) provided. The family room is a really good size, the bathroom is big and the decor is really tasteful, and homely without being twee. As it's right in the centre of Dartmouth it's a brilliant location close to all the shops, bars and restaurants. We were able to arrive late at night, which was a bonus, and the owners were really friendly but completely unobtrusive. We would definitely recommend it, and encourage anyone else we know who is staying nearby to choose it. There are loads of really nice places to have breakfast nearby if you want to. Thank you for having us!
