The suite has an en suite and very comfortable bed and is tastefully furnished. Formally a pub it has been saved to now be transformed into... 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...

Stanley is a lovely place to visit .The Bayview Guesthouse is very comfortable. Sandy the owner is very friendly and so helpful with her knowledge of the area. Everything in town is in walking distance. The Nut is right behind the guesthouse. I would stay there next time we visit.

Bayvieuw is an old hotel but a modern B & B. We stayed in the Family Apartment. It was a whole house and it was realy great to stay there. I would definitely recommend... More

Everyone whom books our apartment is amazed by it's space, originally the Bar when the Bayview was a pub, very little has changed to the structure, made of stone so it is so very quiet and private from the rest of the house, it is a hit with everyone! We are so pleased you enjoyed it too, our guests in... More

An old hotel being transformed into a modern B & B with an historical influence. Building is old but reno is tasteful and practical. We stayed downstairs in a room with a little courtyard out back. Just lovely. Some other rooms looked out to the road and the bay but I think we got the best deal. Very private. Free... More

Stayed only one night in the two bedroom apartment with my daughter and friend but would recommend for a longer stay as there is plenty to do around Stanley. Our greeting was warm and friendly from Sandy who was extremely helpful with information about local restaurants and activities. The unit has been beautifully restored and maintains its old world charm... More

"Old world charm with a modern twist" I will have to admit i do like that very much so, our motto here is to drag this old girl back to what she once was a Pub but we still want to provide all our guests with modern conveniences! The apartment still has a couple of upgrades to go, but we... More

Accommodation was great. Had a lovely welcome when we first got there and plenty of extra little items included that we weren't aware of. Great old building done up nicely and was a treat to stay there with 6 of us including children. Would recommend it when in the area.
