“Friendly welcome, relaxing stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2012

I highly recommend this B&B: I stayed for three nights at the beginning of April and enjoyed it thoroughly. I was staying as a solo traveller, visiting my sister and her family who live nearby, but seeking some peace and quiet away from the children! This place ticked all of the boxes, with a very friendly and welcoming host, a very comfortable, clean and cosy room, and great breakfasts. The breakfast was a real strong point with a choice between multilpe options -- the egg/smoked salmon combo and the waffles are recommended.

One other thing is the view -- a really fantastic panorama looking down across the bay in Schull. A great backdrop for a cup of coffee and a read.

All in all a very enjoyable stay.

What sets this B&B apart is the home feeling you have while staying there. Nancy and family are warm and friendly, the sitting areas are comfy and great for sitting with a cup of tea and a book in between seeing the sites. It is beyond clean and well kept, breakfast is great and the location is fantastic! Highly recommend! The beds are extremely comfortable.

Could not find any fault with the Stanley House. Fantastic friendly service, great location, really good breakfast, a great room with a great view. This is the second time that we have stayed there and will be returning after another really enjoyable visit.

I would recommend this guesthouse as a great place to stay and ideally located to explore West Cork. One recommendation would be to bring a torch if walking back from town at night as the road up to the guesthouse is not lit.

I've recently stayed here with my girlfriend. The B&B is located on a hill overlooking Schull harbor and has breathtaking views of the harbor and surrondings. Nice and clean rooms, fantastic breakfast and a lovely host. All five star, definitely reccomend it.

Stunning hospitality, stunning views, and lovely garden. Although our room did not have a sea view, Nancy kindly laid our breakfast table in the conservatory overlooking the bay. Recommended
