we stayed at "The Base", which is a shared house up the road from @VDL. Why, I don't know, as @VDL had vacancies on the night we tried to stay there. Room was very nice and comfortable, well decorated, and the house is well situated in relation to the town.

Arrived after long ferry trip and drive along coast. We were refused access to our accommodation by a film crew and 2 eighty year old volunteers. They made us feel extremely unwelcome and would not offer any useful suggestions as to were we could wait while they finished filming. We don't understand why they didn't warn us so we could... More

What a fabulous place to stay - unfortunately for only one night! Fabulous location, funky decor, spotlessly clean. Staff (over the phone when booking and when dropping off the yummy chocolates) were very friendly and helpful, and as we were the only couple staying there we even had a quick tour of the other rooms! We stayed in King Suite... More

We arrived at the hotel about 3 in the afternoon. The keys were waing for us and instruction provided. On entry the lovely lounge is warm and inviting. We made our way to our upstairs room and it was lovely. Views over the wharf with a lovely king bed, bath in ensuite. DVD's are available to borrow from the lounge... More

Reasonable price for the night. Coffee and tea only facilities. Be careful when booking as there are 2 venues one historical one modern check carefully which one... More

Stayed here for my boyfriend's birthday and it was so beautiful and funky! Unfortunately we got in as it was getting dark and left early the next morning, but we had the info on how to get into the room and get settled. Love at first sight when we came into the room, LOVED the bathtub and didn't want to... More

We stayed 2 nights recently at @VDL. The accommodation was amazing! Such a beautiful location, and wonderfully restored. The room was spacious, comfy bed, a huge bath. It was lovely and quiet, the perfect relaxing weekend away. Highly recommend!

A motel room without the bustle of a motel. @ The Base consists of 2 motel rooms in a quaint building under The Nut at Stanley with lovely beach and rural views. The rooms are warm, comfortable and interesting. The bathroom has a huge free standing bath plus a separate large shower. Wonderfully large luxury towels. The situation is so... More

When we walked in the front door after picking up our keys, we were greeted by an amazing and well-decorated lounge area. The walls and furnishings look like they date from the time when the building was being used as a general store. The lounge would fit into any high-end home decor magazine, and was a great place to chill... More
