We stayed at the Malvina for 2 nights at the end of a 15 day visit to the Falklands. The hotel is situated overlooking the harbour in the centre of Stanley. It is modern and well furnished, spotlessly clean, quiet and the staff are very friendly, helpful and efficient. Our room was spacious with wardrobe, long dresser with tea and coffee making, flat screen TV, a sofa, table and a very large and comfortable bed. The window formed a bay and the window seat was big enough to sit in with views over the harbour. Bath robes are supplied. The bathroom was a good size with a wide shelf for bits & bobs. The shower was over the bath but was powerful and very hot - we had to turn ours down to the minimum heat to make it comfortable. We were on full board and all meals were excellent. Obviously fresh fruit is hard to come by and very expensive (bananas as £1 each!) so don't expect it with breakfast but the buffet has the usual cereals, yogurt, toast, croissants and a full English breakfast is served at the table. Tea and coffee are from flasks but was perfectly ok. For our evening meal we had a separate menu for full board, but this contained a choice of two starters, two mains and two puddings and the food was excellent, especially the toothfish and the squid. We were also able to get cappaccino, the first we had had since leaving Brize Norton! Breakfast is usually served from 7 a.m. but the buffet is available from 5 a.m. if you are on an early flight home. We can thoroughly recommend this hotel.
