I didn't stay at the hotel but was fortunate enough to be taken there for lunch while working on the Islands. It's in a great location on the harbour side & had the French doors open as the weather was excellent. I had a nice ploughmans in a lovely atmosphere with great views over the harbour.

Recommended and so party of four tried it out. All four of us had Fish and Chips - first time 'in my life' that I found bones - and a number of them, in the fish - the fish had or was re-heated - a shame. Portion of chips, which were not crisp was small, however the staff very friendly... More

We stayed here last November for about two weeks. The room we had was small but the bed was huge and very comfortable. Toilet and shower arrangements were quaint but everything worked well. There was a dressing screen to afford privacy when in the shower. Tea and coffee were available 24 hours a day at the end of the hallway.... More

I stayed in early March, summer, apologies for not having reviewed till now. But I so appreciated the welcome that I want to give Waterfront the credit they deserve. There is not a lot of choice in Stanley so I was pleasantly surprised to be accommodated in this small but comfortable hotel. It has been recently refurbished and the room... More

Very short stay overnight. The manager and his assistant were wonderful and very helpful, making up for the limitations of the property. It is well maintained and basic. No elevator and the stairs are quite narrow. The rooms are spartan but clean, well lit, and toasty in the cold weather. Telephone and internet service are limited and costly, but that... More

We stayed at the Waterfront in January 2014 for 3 days. The bedrooms are tiny. The wardrobe doors would not open fully as it was too close to the bed, the shower was part of the bedroom and had glass doors and gave no privacy at all. The toilet was behind bi-folding doors that did not close properly and again... More

Water Front Hotel which is very nice is about 45 mins away from the airport in the town of Stanley. More like a bed and breakfast the hotel is very comfortable with many food/drink choices either in the hotel or just steps away outside. The hotel, itself has a very good restaurant with good food and reasonable prices. Internet is... More

The food was good at dinner, however rarely what I ordered. When challenged about missing courses wrong food I was told I was wrong by a very patronising waitress. In order to get breakfast I had to knock very loudly on the door of the kitchen. There where very few people in the hotel and the service was very slow.... More
