Bayview Guesthouse .... What a beautiful place of history to stay at! Had we known that Stanley and Bayview Guesthouse were such beautiful places we would have stayed more than one night! Sandy is the wonderful host of the historic former hotel, built in 1849 ... A work in progress ... as she and her family restore and renovate this... More

Helpful owners - very comfortable room with all ammenities we required. Great position near main shops and jetty area. The fact that I have to waste my time and effort just to be sure that I reach 200 characters is the most annoying feature of this survey. There ... I made it.

The Accommodation is beautiful, nestled under the Nut with stunning views out over the bay. Everything is within comfortable walking distance and the guesthouse is like a home away from home, with free BBQ, laundry and even kayaks. The Bayview Guesthouse experience is worthy of recommending to friends and family. Thank you guys, kayaking out around the Nut is still... More

We stayed at the Bay View Guesthouse in September 2014 in a ground floor room facing the sea. The room itself had a polished wooden floor, a large bed, TV, small kitchenette and well presented bathroom facilities. Our host was a pleasure to deal with and knowledgeable. Bay View Guesthouse is right below “The Nut” and within easy walk to... More

Thank you Sandy for your lovely accommodation. Has been renovated with lots of care and attention to detail, very comfortable room. We had the front room which gives beautiful views to the ocean. Easy walking distance to the Main Street shops and restaurants. Hope to return some day.

Beautiful quaint accom in Stanley. We had the front room with gorgeous views across to the ocean; just lovely to sit with a glass of wine and some tasty Tassie cheese to take it all in; bliss. Only disappointment was the lack of eating establishments that were open after 8 pm!!!!! Perhaps because it wasn't "high" season??? Tried the pub,... More

Me and a friend planned a trip to stanley last month and we are glad we did! This little hotel was absolutely beautiful, the views and gardens are breath taking. The customer service would also be hard to top Sandy was so friendly and welcoming. Will definitely be back in the future.
