We spent 2 nights here and felt very comfortable. The rooms all look over the town, bay and the Nut. Our check in was great with a very friendly young lady who checked us out too. She provided some good local knowledge for us. The location is really great, parking is easy and the rooms are clean and comfortable.

Had a queen room in the back row - very comfortable bed, great shower and great views. Very clean and quiet ... enjoyed happy hour in the bar but had dinner down on the beach (short drive). Would definitely recommend and stay there again if in the area

We arrived late from the spirit of Tasmania (Devonport) to a very comfy and cosy room. The bed was extremely comfortable and we slept like babies. The view of the nut and location in general was great! The sink in bathroom was a little discoloured bu still clean. Shower water was hot and had good pressure. I would come back again

Hotel is quite comfortable and clean. The room was large. Our only real problem was the fridge that made lots of unusual noises all night. Views were good. Bathroom needs a shelf in the shower but the water was lovely and hot. Electric blanket was very much appreciated.

The room was of reasonable size and comfortable but lacked air conditioning.The staff were friendly and helpful with knowledge of what to do in Stanley. Only a Continental Breakfast was available but delivered to our room for next morning. It was quite adequate, but we do prefer a cooked breakfast when on tour as we are never certain where we will have lunch!! There was no evening dining room and we had no choice but to travel a short distance (2-3 km) to the town to dine. This is not the most attractive thing to do after a long day on the road.
