An old building steeped in history in central Stanley. We had a large double room with a comfy bed and sofa - and lots of space. An excellent ensuite - very spacious. The kitchenette was small but had a little table and a door leading to a very pleasant patio again with table. Their garden is extensive with a large... More

Many thanks to Sandy for her very hospitable welcome. The Byard is just gorgeous really quaint & most comfortable bed. All the little touches are just lovely & the little kitchenette is really sweet. Well done.

I say it all the time the Byard Suite is still my favorite with the sun-drenched courtyard, nothing beats a morning cuppa and the mesmerizing view of the Nut's cliff face...today the birds are in full swing under the afternoon summer sun! We do hope we can entice you back again some time soon! Safe Travels Sandy More

My husband and I stayed here overnight recently during our visit to Stanley. What a beautiful old place it is. Took us back in time. Our room was lovely. Very neat and clean with lots of charm. It is within walking distance to the centre of town, the wharf area, and The Nut. We highly recommend a stay here.

Stanley is one of those special places in the world to visit and we knew from our first visit 4 years ago that if we were to come back it would have to be at a special place too. Well the Bayview Guesthouse certainly didn't disappoint. The pictures on the web looked good and so we were more than happy... More

Best hosts in Australia!! We had a great room with a great bed & bathroom, small kitchen with interesting food. Our hosts personally showed us around and had great suggestions on where to eat, what to do and even the best place to see the awesome sunsets. The property is a old oversized house and is very well maintained. Also,... More

Wonderful, comfortable facilities in historic building. Our room was pleasantly decorated and was provided a private retreat during our stay. Our host, Sandy, was a warm, friendly host with a wealth of information about her town.

We loved our stay at the BayView Guesthouse. It was spacious, immaculately clean and the thick stone walls added character and peace and quiet! Sandy was very friendly and happy to have a chat about our options. She had also thought of everything - cutlery, continental breakfast provisions and coffee were all available. The car was parked out the front... More

We chose this place because of the central location, and it was perfect. Comfy bed, great shower, handy to all the attractions. The continental Breakfast was a bit light on though. Sandy the hostess gave some great advice on where to eat, and what to see.

Thankyou John and Wendy for taking the time to leave us a review on TripAdvisor! We are very lucky with our position, so close to everything Stanley has to offer, we find 99% of our guests simply do not move their car (unless they are exploring further) on their stay, everything here is simple walking distance! We do hope Stanley... More

We absolutely loved our stay here. We were sorry we had only scheduled 1 night in Stanley, and could not stay longer. The beds (and everything else) were very comfy. Sandy was so welcoming, and a wealth of information. I cannot recommend the Bayview highly enough!
