We arrived in Stanley late one afternoon,and after a phone call to announce our latish arrival, we collected an envelope taped to the front door containing our key. We discovered that the heating system was broken ( by a large note taped to the front) but no alternative was provided. The blinds were broken ( my husband fixed them) and... More

We stayed here for 2 nights. We stayed in a King suite upstairs. The living area and bathroom were very spacious. The king size bed was ultra comfy. The building has been magnificently restored and refurbished. Downstairs is a beautiful, contemporary lounge areas for the guests to partake of. Can walk to everything in Stanley. Would definitely recommend staying here.

We only stayed for 1 night unfortunately at The Base. We could have easily stayed much longer. The room was so nice, so we'll decorated, with 2 easy chairs and a comfortable bed. At the front is you see the ocean and at the back is the Nut. The bathroom is great too with a large shower area. They provide... More

I was very happy with the accommodation here. Very comfortable room. Great location. Tastefully decorated. Parked right out the front. Lovely outlook over the bay. However I had booked at VDL. I was picturing sitting in the lovely lounge area here and was disappointed that management had not sent me a photo of the room I got at BASE instead.... More

We stayed for 4 nights @ VDL Stanley in the King #3 suite. This spacious accommodation is superb, from the artwork, quality fittings and furnishings to all the little attention to details. The tray of chocolates left each night was a wonderful touch. The king bed was so comfy and the bathroom was fantastic. We enjoyed using the shared lounge... More

We have stayed in the King Loft Apartment and have been very happy with the location and the comfort of our apartment. The building has been beautifully restored and the quality of furnishing and products used are of a very high standard. Very comfortable bed, and loved the chocolates every night. Only minor complaint is that we missed having fly... More

The moment you step into @VDL Stanley, you will notice the contemporary interior design, and a refreshing scent permeating the entire place. When we went to our room, we were pleasantly greeted by a clean and spacious accommodation, with a big tub, and Molton Brown toiletries! How thoughtful of the hosts to ensure that their customers are well - pampered!... More

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...
