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

We finished our tour of Tassie here and could not have been more impressed! We chose @VDL based on the excellent reviews here and they could not have been closer to the truth. We stayed in room 2, the decor was beautiful, the king bed was the best night sleep we had! The bathroom was spacious with a large bath... More

We stayed two nights and enjoyed it very much. The bed was very comfortable and the room is warm and relaxing. Loved the furniture too! Every evening a tray of d'anvers chocolates magically appeared in our room (delish!). There is a coffee pod machine in the room and each pod costs $2 (they are not complimentary). I would have preferred... More

The welcome is a bit subdued - the key is left in an envelope taped to the door. Room #3 is spacious and well equipped. The bathroom boasts a large bath as well as shower. Heating (and cooling) are by air conditioning. Would be helpful if instructions were available in the room. The large lounge on the ground floor is... More

I regularly travel to Tasmania for business, and where possible I purposely work my travels to have me in Stanley for a night, and I now always stay at VDL (or the sister property VDL@Base).. on top of Stanley being a very nice, scenic place to stay with excellent quality restaurants the stay at VDL is always great. Extremely well... More

What a gem of a town is Stanley, made all the better by this great little hotel. Thoughtful and stylishly decorated, relaxed, sensational bath, huuuuge bed, dark and quiet, a perfect night's sleep. The quirky little touches make it very memorable. Worth the trip!!
