“Wanted to take the furniture home with us!”
Reviewed 3 May 2014

What a gem of a town is Stanley, made all the better by this great little hotel. Thoughtful and stylishly decorated, relaxed, sensational bath, huuuuge bed, dark and quiet, a perfect night's sleep. The quirky little touches make it very memorable. Worth the trip!!

Room #2 was within our budget but of a higher standard than we would normally expect. The view was awesome, decor contemporary and tasteful, rooms clean and cosy. Our day of arrival was grey and bleak but accommodation was cheerful. The following day the sun shone and we walked to the top of the Nut and right the way around. Stunning, superb,magnificent! We dined both nights at the Stanley Hotel. Friendly service. Yes folks good old fashioned service. Great food. Easy walk from @ the Base if not raining. Stanley is a treasure for sure.

We stayed @The Base in room 1 for 2 nights and we were very happy with it. Great location - just a short walk to the shops, lovely view out the window. Comfy furniture, nice bathroom, heating was nice and warm...would thoroughly recommend it.

My wife and I stayed at the base and found it clean and very comfortable.
Great location, just a stroll down to the main shopping area.
We had nibbles on the veranda and really enjoyed the view. Oysters and smoked salmon from the local cafe.
A motel style room with limited facilities but great bed, linen, and bathroom. All very modern.

Room Tip: I would recommend room 1. The local hotel is good for a meal.

I found VDL Stanley on Trip Advisor. Thank you. The reviews were so right. We found this accommodation to be so special an comfortable. Right on the Stanley Waterfront walking distance in to the village. The bathroom has an amazing very large bathtub in our room 2 upstairs. The decor was great. I love Stanley an this is my favourite place to rest my head. VDL ALS provide a Guest Laundry. We travel on motorcycle so was much appreciated.

Room Tip: Room with a view no 2

We were in Stanley for a wedding and stayed 2 nights in room 2, the smaller room, at @the Base.

The room was modern with a comfortable bed, light clean bathroom, great location and beautiful view.

Others have said the room is small, but my husband and I found it was fine for us.

Great value for money and recommended.
