Booked online and little did we know what a gem we had found. Sandy our hostess, think of her as the friendliest neighbour you've ever had, was brilliant. She recommended places to eat (funnily we bumped into her and Stuart having lunch at one of them) and things to see and do. We spent a lot of time checking Stanley... More

Sandy was very welcoming, the facilities were fantastic, clean, comfortable with a lovely homely touch with all the little extras Sandy provided. First time I have seen a hair straightener provided!! Definitely stay again.

The Bayview was unique, historic accommodation. We had a wonderful time touring around the local village and other high points such as a tour of The Nutt, a significant geological formation. We saw lots of wildlife such as wallabies and penguins. The hosts at The Bayview were great. I have no hesitation recommending this venue for anyone wanting something out... More

Thankyou Peter for taking time to leave your thoughts on TripAdvisor! There is nothing nicer than a bottle of wine infront of a roaring fire, something our guests atm are enjoying with the Autumn chill in the air..with that chill comes the wildlife and they are in abundance seeing a Paddymelon wandering down our main road is common!

Very lucky to have stumbled across this accommodation. Was perfect for a relaxing night in Stanley. The room was beautiful and clean, with a very comfortable bed. Breakfast was provided, and the views were amazing. Sandy was a great host - thanks so much.

Thankyou Milly for taking time to leave your thoughts of the Bayview on TripAdvisor, we are so very pleased you enjoyed your stay with us, we do receive alot of positive feedback from those whom just stumble across us, the Bayview is certainly Bold and overwhelming when you see her, but she pleasantly surprises everyone whom walks through her doors!...

We loved Stanley and were lucky to be accommodated in the large two-storied apartment after our reservation at another establishment had been double booked. The hosts at Seaview were welcoming and helpful. The apartment was large and clean, with a lounge, dining and kitchen area on the ground floor, and two bedrooms, a bathroom and a deck on the upper...

Two couples travelling together. We had the two bedroom apartment. We loved everything about Bayview Guesthouse. Spotlessly clean, lovely hosts, roomy, the position and the chance to stay in a hotel built around 1849. We only stayed for one night but would have loved to stay longer. There is a fire place that can be used and would be so... More

Thankyou John for leaving your thoughts for us here on TripAdvisor.. We have never over advertised to fact that the Bayview was a bustling pub back in her heyday, her history speaks for itself..the "Bar" apartment is loved by everyone, if only those thick stone walls could talk..with little being transformed you can imagine the clinking of glasses after a...

We spent a night at Bayview, in one of the downstairs rooms at the front. Arrived late(ish) into Stanley, just missing the owner for the afternoon, but our room was all set up and ready for us. Lovely little room overlooking the bay, positioned right in front of the Nut (as is most of Stanley, I guess!). We were initially... More

Fantastic historic building, at the base of 'The Nut', great ocean views, walking distance to pub, cafes/restaurants. Warmly welcomed by very friendly owner who loves what she is doing. Comfortably furnished. Renovated nicely to provide mod cons. Some history available from the owner. We stayed with another couple, sharing the bathroom. I would stay there again if we went back...

We loved our two nights at Bayview Guest house, with its ample sized room overlooking the Bay. The whole town consists of wonderfully preserved buildings and cottages, with the added delights of the boat area off the point, the wonderful Highfield House, and the excellent short but steep walk up the Nut to get a bird's eye view of the...
