Visiting places where your ancestors first established themselves in Australia creates a certain bias toward a place. We have made several visits to Stanley. On other occasions we have stayed at the 'parent' property, the on the waterfront bluestone @VDL. We have been there in every season and stayed in each of the suites. If modern comfort of home, dare... More

Loved staying here, it was such a luxury compared to some of the other places we stayed in whilst travelling Tasmania! Beautiful interior, loved how it was decorated. Very much appreciated coming back from dinner to find a plate of handmade chocolates waiting for us! Very worth the money. The only downside was the water pressure. Took nearly an hour... More

I loved arriving at this place. The history of the building (Van Diemen's Land Company house) and its stunning and very stylishly designed interiors are gorgeous. The art reflects Tasmania's contemporary print scene and the huon pine and other crafted modern furniture made me feel I was having a 5 star experience at the end of the earth...nearly. Great bathroom.... More

I absolutely loved this place. We stayed in @vdl's sister property called @the base (room nos 2) and it was wonderful! It's at a great location( we were a 5-10 mi walk away from Hursey's seafood, the Moby Dick breakfast bar and the walking trail to the Nut. From our room we got a wonderful view of the sea and...

The architecture at VDL is stunning, but not very practical. The sitting room downstairs looked great but the failure off the fire to light made it very cold. The air conditioning in the bedrooms was not adequate for the very cold winter temperatures. The location is great being a short stroll from the water, the shops and restaurants and the... More

We loved the free standing bath and the underfloor heating was an added bonus :) Free wifi was great, Thanks for the great recommendations of places to eat/ drink, Location is very... More

This beautiful, historic bluestone building is even more amazing once you step inside with a super stylish interior and amazing attention to detail - perfectly balancing its heritage with a modern feel. The property felt very private which we love with only three rooms and the key left at the door for our arrival. You first walk into a great... More

We stayed in a room @the base while it was freezing cold and raining outside. The room was nice, clean and perfectly warm. The bed was extremely comfortable and we loved the huge bathroom. The location was great, close to the centre of town and a close walk to The Nut.

We stayed here for one night. Stayed at the Base. From our room, we have amazing views of ocean. Room had everything we needed. Bed was comfy, artwork was a nice touch. Solid and modern fittings throughout. Only downside was outside light was on a very sensitive setting.

We stayed at the VDL Stanley on our honeymoon and the service was good. The photo's of the room looked nice on the internet however when we got there unfortunately when you touched the cement walls some particles of the wall would fall off and become a little dusty. Location wise it's a good place to stay.
