“Just the Best”
Reviewed 22 March 2013

This is simply a lovely place to stay . Host are welcoming ,easy going yet professional
The house is beautifully positioned in Stanley, so near to the beach that fairy penguins nest nearby and just below the Nut. The room we had was spacious and spotlessly clean
Breakfasts produce is of a high standard with a varied menu.
We had an 8 week trip to Australia and found a a good standard throughout, but this B&B stood out as the best and one I would happily return to.

We stayed there only one night, our problem, and experienced one of the best B & B's ever. The owners could not have been nicer and helped in any and all way's possible. We are not a huge fan of B & B's on average but this one cured us :). We travelled around good old Tassie for 2 weeks again (can't get away from that lovely place) and having had a couple of medium/rare experiences on the way, this was a magic tonic! Thanks and we will be back. Peter & Jola

Room Tip: Great spot in Stanley, have a go, you will love it.

What a wonderful B&B! When we arrived we were treated to a lovely cheese plate, wine and beverages.
Our view was amazing, rooms beautifully and tastefully furnished, linen was lovely quality and very clean.
The best thing, apart from our hosts, was the attention to the smallest detail; crystal decanter of port next to the spa bath, body lotion, shampoo, conditioner, cotton buds, bath lotion, chocolates in a beautiful silver presentation bowl...... Dvd's aplenty, iPod docking station to play your own choice of music..... Wonderfully thought out!
Breakfast was as good as you would find in the best restaurants, with a wonderful choice and made as required with fresh produce!
We will definatly be back!

This little B&B in Stanley is obviously the place to stay if you enjoy the welcome of a B&B stay. The room, Mary Ellen suite, was very clean and tidy with a comfortable bed, enjoying lovely ocean views from the verandah. Our hosts were obviously very proud of their establishment and had first rate knowledge about the places to see and eat at. That said I didn't think much of the breakfast though there was a wide variety to choose from and it had a relaxed homely feel to it which I guess is what B&B's are all about. I would have no hesitation in recommending this place to my friends, if they are seeking some old world charm in a relaxed B&B environment.

We stayed at Hanlon House as we had to change our plans due to the recent bush fires in Tasmania and stumbled across this beautiful B&B. We were so glad we changed it to there as not only is the town a picture perfect place to visit but this B&B was also picture perfect.

Very clean, tidy and an amazing location with a breath taking view from the dining room. The hosts were an absolute pleasure to meet and Maxine's breakfast was amazing!!! We had the whole upstairs suite to ourselves but would even suit a family.

Would definitely recommend this to anyway wanting to stay in Stanley!

Lovely old home beautifully renovated and furnished. My husband and I had the bedroom with the spa bathroom which was a great size and extremely comfortable with great ocean views. Our hosts were very gracious and there were lovely choices for breakfast.
Very close walking distance to main street and The Nut.
On our arrival we were provided with a small snack and hot drinks by our host, which was lovely, however my husband did not like that he could not make himself a cup of tea after returning from our dinner at a nearby restaurant. We also felt a little intrusive as it was also the owners own home as well. We appreciate that not everyone would feel like this, but perhaps this style of accommodation would not be our next choice.

My partner and I decided to stay in Stanley after a recommendation from a Hobart local. We made the trip up and luckily managed to nab the last room at this wonderful B & B.

The room was clean, cosy and right next to the gorgeous ocean which provided a great view! Not to mention a quick stroll for a great swim :) Also, there are penguins that have a home right outside of the room!

To complete this lovely trip were Maxine & Graham who ensured we had a great trip, booked us a delicious dinner and made the stay much more fabulous. Can't wait to visit again!
