We stayed for a night at the Crow's nest, in Cabin 2. The location is great, less than a minutes walk to the water-front and close to bayards cove (and the lower ferry). The room and en-suite were a good size, spotlessly clean and the bed was very comfortable. Great value and the hosts were very helpful too. We will... More

We stayed there a couple of weeks ago to visit our son at the Royal Naval College, We enjoyed the room and the fact that it was just in the centre of the town. The room was nice and clean with all the facilities one might want. Alan & Val were pleasantly helpful and unobtrusive and just let us enjoy... More

Great when I found it.(there is another Crows Nest in Dartmouth uphill from the river) Everything you need and more in my room, cabin 1. Room only basis so I had to go out for breakfast but lots of places within easy walking distance. Very handily placed in the town centre. Only negative is it was quite noisy when my... More

I stayed at the crows nest in the first week of September for 3 nights. On arrival we were made to feel extremely welcome and given some useful information on the local area. The car parking permit is invaluable and is conveniently located about 100m away. The location is perfect for exploring dartmouth. Extremely central and no more than a... More

Bed only with convenient location near the harbour and ferry, less then a minute walk from most of the restaraunts. Parking overnight can be provided by hosts. Room we stayed in was nice and clean with regular double bed. Up to an hour parking is next to the entrance to offload luggage.

I have just returned home after a 2 night stay at The Crow's Nest with my two children (aged 5 and nearly 2). Cabin 2 was absolutely perfect for the 3 of us and really well equipped so I didn't need to worry about the kids being up at 5:30am as there was a TV to watch and plenty of... More

I stayed here with two friends over three nights. We have stayed in Dartmouth many times over the years for sea fishing but not at this accommodation. It offers "Room Only" board which suits our needs as we are often out early to meet our charter boat skipper. The accommodation is exceptionally well maintained, bright and very clean. A parking...

One of the best places I've ever stayed in - the owners were helpful but not imposing. Cabin 2 is beautiful and everything has been put together so thoughtfully. It's quite nice not to have breakfast where you're staying and means you can go out and about and try different places in beautiful Dartmouth. The family photos on the landing... More

We stayed one night and had a very comfortable stay. Had everything we needed including hair dryer and iron. Clean rooms and well sized, we stayed in cabin 2. Excellently situated, can highly recommend going to Alf Resco's for Breakfast a couple of doors down. Will definitely return here.
