We stayed at the historic 3 room VDL location. Not really a hotel but our upper level, king bed room with a bath was very comfortable and is a good base for 3+ nights to explore the local area. Professionally run, very clean and with a chocolate tasting plate left for us on two nights. Rattlely window blinds while sleeping...

Great central location, easy walk to Main Street and nut train. The accommodation was impeccable and would highly recommend for anyone staying in the area. A beautiful old building which has been restored in a modern way. Welcome chocolates a lovely add on to our arrival.

After a long road trip around Tasmania, our last stop was @VDL Stanley. It was by far the most lovely and beautiful accommodation we stayed at during our trip. Such a beautiful old building so close to the beach and with such great furnishings and views it was hard not to immediately fall in love with this beautiful place. The...

VDL exceeded our expectations. A random booking via groupon that came up earlier in the year and I thought why not, Stanley seems like an interesting place! VDL has so much character and interesting provenance, really recommend it.

We spent a night in the King Loft @VDL Stanley. This is a truly spectacular little hotel. Loved the books on hip hotels and without doubt we should see @VDL in one of those books sometime. The room was perfect, well stocked, comfortable King bed, lots of spaces, and heated for those cold Tasmanian mornings. Beautifully appointed and perfectly located....

I have stayed at the VDL Base accommodation twice in the last 2 months and both times the stay has been really great. This accommodation is a converted house in Alexander St, containing 2 separate rooms. I have only stayed in Base 1, the front room. The room is spacious, lovely king size bed, quality furniture and fittings with a...

I originally thought I was booking into the main acc at @VDL Stanley however I actually booked into the sister property. I wasn't disappointed as the sister property was a beautiful place to stay for the night. The room was so clean, great furniture and a very comfortable bed. The bathroom was really good too. The place has a wonderful...

Excellent accommodation in king room plus fold out sofa lounge for third person. Room was large and comfortable. The building and furnishings are amazingly tasteful and modern with an artful twist. Would recommend a stay here to all who will listen. Stanley is fantastic and a break away here is a great idea. You will never tire of the ocean...

We really enjoyed our stay here. It wasn't your typical bnb or hotel as per previous reviews but that was all part of the fun in my opinion. We had the place all to ourselves, one of the king rooms and it was lovely. Nice views over the bay, spacious and clean. Nice bath and the hotel has a great...
