Reviewed January 18, 2013

We recently stayed in a Waterfront room. Beautiful views. Excellent modern, stylish, friendly hotel, with a great restaurant. Good menu particularly enjoyed the roast pork. We ate/ stayed there for 4 nights and have to say it was the best food we ate during our 10 nights stay in the islands. Great atmosphere in the busy bar.

Patrick Watts, our guide, booked this hotel for us. We got the waterfront view, rooms were clean and comfy, very good English breakfast, you have to pay for wifi, probably the best hotel in Stanley. They stored some of our luggage while we flew to other islands for a few days. We stayed in Malvinas twice on our return trip. Evening meals were good. Sack lunches were available for our trip to Volunteer Point/Beach to see the King Penguin Colony. Yes, I would recommend this hotel if you visit Stanley.

Room Tip: Waterfront view is the best.

Having stayed here on numerous occasions I have to say that it really is one of my favourite hotels. The rooms have some wonderful views and are modern and clean. The bar is often busy and friendly and food is good. If you get the chance then this is not to be missed.

Room Tip: A room at the front is wonderful.

The Malvinas House Hotel seems to go from strength to strength, always clean warm and comfortable. Friendly helpful staff well lead by the manager Carl who goes well beyond that extra mile to help his patrons wherever and whenever possible. You are guaranteed a warm and cheerful welcome whenever you cross the Malvinas threshold.

Room Tip: Rooms to the front have the best views and more privacy,

4th trip to the Falkland Islands. I was put up in the "Honeymoon suite" which has an impressive view, from it's lounge window, of the middle of Stanley Harbour. Don't take that to mean that all you can see are ships, because any ships are at the far eastern end of this natural harbour. The view takes in a good stretch of water with the opposite side comprising natural terrain, with the names of ships picked out in natural rock.
The room did not yet have it's full complement of lounge furniture, but the bedroom was superb with a king size bed, (I was their on my own :( ), Double wardrobe, and desk. The ensuite bathroom was good with a bath with shower, washbasin, and toilet, and a good supply of fresh white towels. Unlike most hotels that I stay in, if you put your towel on the hot rail with the intention of using them again, they do not get replaced.
The bar downstairs is equipped with drinks for the majority of tastes, including the rather alarmingly large "Large glass of wine" Really enjoyed that!
The restaurant offers a very good selection of dishes using, where possible, local produce. All the dishes that I tried were well presented, well cooked, and of a good, filling, amount. If, as happens, the restaurant is busy, you can get the same quality meals in the bar. The restaurant is currently being extended to double it's current size, but the ongoing work is not affecting the current service and ambience.

All the above would be cancelled out if the staff did not rise to the same standard, which they do. All of them, without fail were helpful, friendly, and professional

Room Tip: Rooms facing the bay are the best, but the lack of a view doesn't detract from the room quality...

Love the food served here - friendly, helpful staff. Highly recommended! The chef will always try to accommodate any special needs you have and will adapt dishes to suit you if he can. I try to eat here a couple of times a month and it is always preferred location to meet up for a night out with friends. Bar is nice, quiet, smoke free with a friendly atmosphere.

Stayed here for 5 nights when re-visiting the Falkland Islands as a 1982 veteran. The staff go out of their way to provide an excellent and friendly service. Many apologies that the computer system had gone down when we arrived bu no inconvenience and soon sorted. Extension works still underway so it looks like a bit of a building site from the outside but don't let this put you off. We booked by email and phone call from UK and were upgraded from standard Double to Executive room as we were staying 5 nights and at no additional cost. The view across Stanley Harbour are stunning. Unfortunately we didn't have time to use the Spa so can't comment on that. We would definitely stay here again and hope to before too long.
