We have been to Stanley on previous holidays and travelled this time with another couple. We booked the Bayview because of the location and because our intended accommodation was booked out. Our stay was wonderful. We had the Lowrie and Bentley rooms. Both rooms were well-furnished with lovely en-suites. Each room had water views and were equipped with a small... More

Thankyou David, Suzie, John & Michelle, it was a pleasure having you all stay with us for a couple of days! All our feedback from the Bentley & Lowrie Suites are positive, the space it allows means you do not feel like your under each other's feet! The Bay View has undergone many cosmetic changes in three years and it... More

Thank you Sandy for a wonderful stay in your historic guesthouse. We enjoyed the comfortable and private Byard room immensely and loved that we could walk everywhere. Your friendly and welcoming manner just topped it all off for us. We will come again and recommend your unique guesthouse to all of our friends.

Excellent! Quiet relaxing and a great place to unwind. I would very much like to return to do almost nothing. Excellent crayfish at the local hotel at the lowest prices we found in Tasmania. Very clean and comfortable and complete with excellent proprietors.

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
