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

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

After doing our research we chose the Bayview Guesthouse for our stay in Stanley.We booked the Bentley suite with its large window and comfortable lounge strategically placed to enjoy the view or just relax. 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.

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!
