We stayed in the ‘Postmaster Apartment’ for three very enjoyable nights in mid December. We check Stamps out on their own web site and TripAdvisor. Their web site is excellent and the apartment was ‘as displayed’ there. We only used the lower level of the apartment as there were only two of us. We did however have a little look at the ‘Ensuite Room’ and the upstairs bedrooms/living area above our apartment – they were also lovely.
Situated right in the heart of little Stanley with wonderful views, off street parking, entrance terrace (with table and chairs) and a covered (shared) outdoor BBQ area this apartment had everything going for it at a great price. The hosts were accommodating and helpful.
The living area is large with a very comfortable corner settee, TV/DVD/CD player, open fire and electric heater and there was a dining table with seating for six. The kitchen area (where the great view is) had windows on two sides, good cooking facilities and equipment, plenty of china and glassware and bar seating plus two chairs by the window for casual dining. The queen size bed was comfortable and the room had drawer and hanging space, electric blankets and good lighting. Again a great view from the big old window. The bathroom was spacious and had a washer and dryer in one corner. There was a shower over a bath, good mirrors etc and excellent heat lamps. This historic apartment had lots of character, was tastefully decorated and everything was very clean and well maintained. Yes we could hear some noise during the day from the Post Office and other guest returning in the evening to the other accommodation but it did not disturb us.
The photo displayed on the Stamps header page on TripAdvisor and the review of Palm Tree Cottage plus some of the photos appear to be related to other accommodation and misplaced. There is a lot of specialist B&B accommodation in Stanley, surprising considering how tiny the town is. We found Stamps to be just right for our needs – central, spacious and self-contained at a very good price.
