As the name suggests, it sits right in the Stanley a waterfront and offers great views of Stanley Harbour. A great place to visit for everything from tea and cake... More

I have to say, almost like an after thought, it's set out beautifully. Very very comfortable, if you want to read a book... Highly recommended. Thank... More

We started in the Waterfront's bed and breakfast which was clean, newly refurbished and had good facilities and then moved to the Waterfront to a double en suite room.
