Reviewed November 14, 2012

This is our 3rd time to Stanley in 10 years. We found this place on the web and I can't remember it being open last time. Have stayed at a couple of places around town. Always try to search for a place with decent view.
We booked the belvedere suite which had an amazing double shower, and a view which can only be seen to be beleived !
Can't remember the owners names but they were most accommodating and very friendly.
There was all equip to make teas etc a few lil choccy's (yum) no full kitchen but we weren't on holiday to cook !
great eatery's within minutes of a leisurely stroll.
Can't wait for a 4th trip and will 110% book this place again ! WOW !
