Bay View Guesthouse
Ranked #2 of 8 Stanley B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 4, 2008

We have just returned to Launceston after spending 2 nights at the Bay View Guest house. The Guest House in Stanley has a superb location, with a view across the bay and easy walking to the cafes, restaurants and the nut. Our room was gorgeous, with the most comfortable queen size bed, quality linen and towels. Everything was exceptionally clean and modern. We dined out both evenings, however the guest room has facilities which would enable you to be very self sufficient if you so desired! We made sure we started our mornings by pulling open the curtains, making a quality cup of coffee (provided in your tariff), jumping back into bed and gazing out of the window at the bay and stunned by the peace and silence of Stanley. Our guest room, would easily rate at an equivalent standard to that of the Marriott in Sydney and the Hotel Intercontinental, we have stayed at both, with the quality of the Italian Marble in the Bathroom, Sheridan towels and Linen. Our hosts Caroline and Dennis, along with their 2 girls are passionate about providing quality accommodation at an exceptional price, we paid just $99 per night, quite Unbelievable and the best $99 we have ever spent!! We loved our time in Stanley, we both know this had a huge amount to do with the Bay View Guest House, it exceeded our expectations and we will definitely be returning. As an added note Caroline and Dennis are just about to complete a fourth guest room for family's or larger travelling groups - wonderful! If you are looking for a wonderful place to stay, with lovely views, then truly - look no further :)

My wife, myself and a friend stayed at the Bay View Guesthouse for a week after Easter, as a base for our sight-seeing in northern and western Tasmania.
The location of the guesthouse at the base of 'The Nut' is superb with views over the bay opposite. It is only a few minutes walking access to restaurants, shops and the Post Office.

Carrie and Denis are the perfect hosts with nothing too much trouble to help you enjoy your stay.

We stayed in the Unit 4 Quattro with its own kitchen and courtyard with a direct view up the Nut. Our friend stayed in Unit 1 Romanza. We are all agreed that the units are clean and have the very best quality fixtures and fittings. The decorating of the units was done by a Master, or in this case a Mistress, as I am told it was all Carries's work. It is superb and was the envy of my wife.

The best part was that all this quality and comfort came at a very modest cost.

We would throughly recommend a stay at the Bay View Guesthouse.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Built in 1949, The Bay View has had a colourful history. From its humble days as a pub from the 1800's to the 1970s it was left stripped and abandoned almost on the verge of being demolished. Over the next 15 years it underwent change and renovation into the building it is today....do not judge a book by its cover. Her bold colour assures the Bay View never blends into the background; she stands proud and refuses to be missed, but her interior is calm, quiet and relaxing that reflect the history of the building and incorporate some modern creature comforts. Sitting on 3/4 acre of land, the Bay View boasts views from every angle and window, private courtyards verandahs, private balconies and a wandering garden full of trees, flowers and wildlife, so sit back with a hot cuppa, or a glass of wine while the kids play, we are all about family and relaxing and enjoying everything the Bay View and Stanley have to offer! ... more   less
