Cobblestone Inn Review

This boutique hotel is cozy, convenient, inexpensive, and loaded with historic charm—but it's nowhere near a beach. Instead, it's near the waterfront in "the city," as Vincentians call Kingstown, in a government-owned historic building that was once used as a warehouse for sugar and arrowroot. Converted to a hotel in 1970, the building has original (1814) Georgian architecture, a sunny interior courtyard, and a warren of cobblestone alcoves, walkways, and arches. Rooms, which are tiny, were upgraded from simple to upscale in 2008—but the rates have hardly changed. Each room has the original stone walls, a private bath, and exquisite decor that includes rich fabrics and impressive antique beds, dressers, and rugs. Suite 28 is particularly special, with a separate sitting area, two large beds, and a grand glass-and-wrought-iron double-door entry. An open-air rooftop bar–restaurant serves breakfast and light lunches. The popular Basil's Bar and Restaurant is at ground level.
