“Great place to stay!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 8, 2013

We really enjoyed staying here just recently, and Sandy and Stuart made us feel very welcome. The rooms are all different, and so tastefully decorated and spotless, plus cosy and comfortable. We liked it so much, we decided to stay 2 nights instead of the one. In all all, a very pleasant experience in both meeting Sandy & Stuart, and staying in this lovely guest house. Many thanks to you both!
Judy & Dave King, ACT

Hi Judy and Dave,
Thankyou so much for your glowing review, it was wonderful to have you both stay with us recently and you got to experience everything Stanley and it's surrounds has to offer including the beautiful weather. It was fantastic meeting you both and chatting over coffee, by far the best part of my new career meeting my lovely guests and as you know we are striving to make the Bayview a home away from home without loosing any of it's historic charm and to receive your review we must be on the right track! Very much looking forward to greeting you again one day!
Kindest Regards Sandy and Stuart.

We stayed at Bayview for two nights as we were attending a wedding in Stanley. The room was at the front with views over the bay.It was extremley clean, neat with heaps of space. A kitchenette with all you need and a spotless roomy ensuite. The owners were very freindly and gave us total privacy. If you are looking for a place to have breaky I can recommend Moby Dick breakfast Bar about 2 minutes walk - best breakfast ever!! The Stanley Hotel for the evening meal is value for money and a great meal. The guesthouse is walking distance from the village shops - you could walk to The Nut , we chose to drive. Well worth consideration for a place to stay.

Stanley is always on my tour map when in Tasmania as it’s a base for visiting relatives. And the Bay View Guesthouse is always the choice of a home away from home! I’ve stayed in all four rooms, some more than once, and have never been disappointed. They have been nicely decorated, the beds are comfortable and the kitchen area is equipped with everything you need if you want to eat in. The owners, Denis and Caroline and their two daughters, Julia and Francesca, are welcoming, friendly and gracious hosts and nothing is too much trouble. I always feel sad when it's time to move on from here. The only thing missing is a table where
I can set up the laptop and work comfortably.

Room Tip: All rooms are good and the two-storey suite perfect for two couples or a family.

My partner and I stayed here recently after twice before having to cancel. In short we loved it. Its a fabulous old but restored building. Room was very comfortable and the view from ours across the bay was sublime. We also loved the fact that we could walk a short distance to restaurants. The post card from the owners waiting for us when we returned home was a lovely touch. We'll be staying here again on our next visit to Tasmania.

Warm, friendly family made us feel most welcome . Comfortable beds, lge bathroom, well equipped kitchenette with garden outlook + private patio, off street parking = relaxing, pleasant stay. Comprehensive guide to Stanley & surrounds available on request. We'd be happy to return.

Room Tip: Large twin room has no sea view, but access to quaint, sheltered garden patio.

I had been through this way 18 months ago and was not able to stay over night. I loved this village on first sight.
My partner had never been to Tasmania before so this was a must. We booked in here and she was delighted as soon as we sighted the room.
Walk to everything, breakfast, Pub, beaches, chair lift.

Room Tip: Book early to get a room here

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Built in 1949, The Bayview has had a colourful history. From its humble days as a pub in the early 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 Bayview never blends into the background; she stands proud and refuses to be missed, but her interior is undergoing some major cosmetic updating to reflect the history of the building and incorporate some modern creature comforts. Sitting on 3/4 acre of land, the Bayview 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 Bayview and Stanley have to offer! ... more   less
