Its located a 10 minute walk to the nearest Pub/s. The rooms with en suite are basic and clean. The building is cheap with squeaky noises, badly fitting doors and windows and little acoustic privacy. The diner is often very busy with mainly junk food on offer. Its probably very good if you like that sort of thing.

The room was cleaned and refreshed every other day as we were staying for 7 days. Overall the room was a good size with everything available to hand and the shower / water was always... More

We stayed at Shorty's one night before we left the Falklands because our first choice of accommodation was already booked. We found it to be comfortable and pleasant, but not especially fantastic. I think their typical clients are military personnel that come from Mount Pleasant who stay in Stanley for weekends off so it's fairly bare bones. Shorty's is located... More
