Well where do I even begin? From the exterior The Ark is a stunning property sitting right on Stanleys waterfront. Upon arrival to The Ark we were personally greeted by our wonderful host Rhonda - we were shown to our room and settled in. The property is truly spectacular, recently renovated everything is perfectly shiny and new. The small details Rhonda and Chris put into the property really make it shine. The sherdian robes, and towels, the perfect linen, the bathroom and shower was fantastic, even a cookie jar full of tim tams for a late night cuppa. We stayed in The Corinthian which is one of the lower cost rooms, so we didn't have a view of the water, however this didn't matter as the room was great. We were able to see the two front rooms with the view of the water, and they were stunning. We arrived on Boxing Day so a lot of the eateries in Stanley were closed, however Rhonda provided us with a list of everything that was available in the area. We were even lucky enough to do some fishing with Chris who was able to share lots of wonderful experiences of the local area. Breakfast was a treat, with fresh orange juice and strawberries from the garden. We have travelled to Tasmania several times (and this was our third time in Stanley) and this was by far one of our most memorable experiences in a B&B. We will be back here again as soon as we can, and we will be choosing The Ark.
