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

Unfortunately the Restaurant was closed for re-furbishment while we stayed at The Waterfront Hotel, but they continued to provide a excellent cooked breakfast. The room was clean & comfortable, although the shower was rather compact. Alex & his staff were extremely hospitable and made our stay very pleasant.

My wife and I stayed here for 8 nights over the christmas period and cannot praise Alex and his staff too highly. We stayed in one of the harbour view en-suite double rooms, and have never slept in a more comfortable bed. I have never met more friendly and obliging staff, and they were always ready to put in that... More

We stayed here for a week & had one of the two front bedrooms. Ensuite shower room is compact, but overall room very comfortable. Lovely to have a couple of cosy armchairs to sit & watch the dolphins / world go by & enjoy the views. The cooked breakfast was very good plus cereals, fruit etc available. We had dinner... More

As the name suggests the hotel is situated on the waterfront in Stanley. If you get the one of the two front bedrooms you will enjoy great views across the harbour. This was our second visit in 12 months, each time staying three nights. The hotel has a very relaxed atmosphere. The lounge and dining room are stylishly decorated to... More
