We stayed in the Byard Suite. It had everything we needed to be fully self contained. Loved the decor of the suite with so many lovely touches to create a welcoming atmosphere. Lovely little courtyard for privacy. Also enjoyed taking the morning coffee (plunger or pod) out on the front verandah to take in the water view. The owners were...

Spent a couple of nights at the Bayview and would definitely go back again. Lovely old pub that has been converted over the years. Had the upstairs room, large and comfortable bed. The kitchen facilities were good with the ability to do your own cooking if you wished. The guesthouse has a wonderful view across the bay and town, very...

Stanley is worth the effort to get there. It is quaint,historic and very clean. Lots to see and do. The Guesthouse was just lovely. A huge room, with lovely furnishings and real coffee for breakfast! Well worth the visit.

We had a wonderful three nights stay at the Bayview I was travelling with my parents so keen to be close together. Originally booked into the two bedroom bar apartment but later wanted to add a night so we booked the two upstairs rooms that had a shared kitchen and bathroom for first night. This was essentially an apartment for...

It was an absolute pleasure having you all stay with us!

A lovely night in Staley, the room was beautifully presented and Sandy was happy to supply any information you needed. Located just a short walk to everything. You definately need to go up the nut as well.

We were floored by the location. Overlooking the water was an absolute pleasure. We had a room off to the side of the house. It was easy to access and we didn't have to bother the owners at all. The kitchenette was great. The new bathroom was a bonus. We will stay again.

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
