I stayed at Lafone for a week, whilst in the Falklands. Arlette maintains an outstanding B&B which is beautifully appointed and very nicely decorated. I was privileged to have the front room which was beautifully furnished and very spacious. Arlett is an excellent hostess. For business purposes this was an excellent place to stay, Arlette know's everyone in the community... More

Beautiful house packed with books and modern paintings. Three excellent sitting rooms with TV. Bedrooms are comfortable with ensuite in some. Huge breakfasts and guests are allowed to make cups of tea and help themselves to home made biscuits. Arlette who owns and runs the guest house is an excellent hostess and becomes a friend in no time. A lovely... More

This is a lovely house, with great views. It is warm and cosy, and breakfasts are huge. We arrived with lots of dirty laundry having not showered for a few days, and Arlette let me use her washing machine. Great hot showers, comfy warm bed. Arlette is really friendly and bakes her own bread and all her own cakes and... More

Why stay in a hotel, even a good one, when you can stay in a comfortable B&B. This house is just a short walk from the main part of Stanley and has views over the waterfront. The welcome from the owner, Arlett, is really friendly and she cooks a super breakfast. The bedrooms are clean and bright and the lounge... More

I only stayed here for one night, but should I ever have the good fortune to make it back to FI then I would stay again in an instant. The house is beautiful, and has stunning views out over the Harbour. Arlette is a fantastic host - felt right at home the moment we arrived. Would recommend 100% to anyone... More

This is an amazing place and is fantastically furnished to a very high standard and is incredibly comfortable. Wonderful, friendly and welcoming host. Brilliant views and places all over the house to sit and admire them from. The food is absolutely fantastic and the attention to detail second to none. The guest clearly always come first in this establishment.

Had a beautiful room overlooking Stanley Harbour, with en-suite bathroom. (Note some rooms share a common bathroom). Arlette Betts (proprietor) is a most generous host and serves a great breakfast; evening meals can also be arranged if required. Property appears to have been recently refurbished to a very high standard. Central heating.

La Fone house is an ideal place to stay when visiting the Falklands. It commands a fine view across Stanley Harbour & The Narrows with the centre of Stanley being only a comfortable 10 min walk away. It is a large modern house with all the amenities you would need. Even when full of guests the house is large enough... More

Lovely, clean and homely place to stay. A 5-10 min walk from the centre of Stanley. Great views over the sea and the 'bay'. Arlette could not have been more welcoming and could not have looked after us better - she went out of her way , above and beyond, to make sure our stay with her was special. should... More
