Built in 1949, The Bay View has had a colourful history. From its humble days as a pub from the 1800's to the 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 Bay View never blends into the background; she stands proud and refuses to be missed, but her interior is calm, quiet and relaxing that reflect the history of the building and incorporate some modern creature comforts. Sitting on 3/4 acre of land, the Bay View 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 Bay View and Stanley have to offer!

Exceptional accommodation. We were very fortunate to stay just after the rooms were renovated. The rooms are large and meticulously presented. Each unique with a different aspect of the town, beach or the Nut. Exemplary service. Knowledgeable and helpful staff who are always

Stayed here for one night in April 2018. Amazing service, beautiful rooms, great breakfast, and a great nights sleep. The guest house is being restored to its historic roots, with modern touches to make the stay even better. The “Bar” has been restored to a large sitting

Thank you James for leaving your thoughts here on TripAdvisor, It was an absolute pleasure meeting you both! Nothing like a great chat over loads of washing! My guests love the old "Bar" apartment, it is spacious and has everything you need......but what i hear is you can sit back and still see what it once was, and old bar, she has her quirks, and i am so pleased you enjoyed your night! Safe Travels back home to Canada! But i do hope Australia tempts you back to live again. Sandy

This historic guesthouse is charming (the photographs do it no justice) and comfortable. We had a lovely double room that is more like a small apartment than a hotel room, with ensuite, kitchen and quite private outdoor area overlooking the garden and the nut. Our host is lovely

Thankyou T Y for leaving your thoughts on TripAdvisor, i remember your visit well, you had booked the Bar Apartment very spacious especially for two guests! Views in every direction, and your own balcony that overlooks the bay and the garden and Nut at the rear. I do hope the remainder of your travels around Tassie were just as surprising.

What a find. For a family of 6 this was a fantastic place to stay. Well presented and right in the heart of everything . Would recommend this for a short or long stay. We only stated the one night and were very comfortable.

Thankyou Ray for leaving your thoughts here on TripAdvisor The Bar Apartment is loved by everyone, it must be the "bar" part maybe? Very spacious and homes a family of six very comfortably. Absolutely everything Stanley has to offer under a 5 minute walk away, and very quiet, i am so pleased you all enjoyed it, and i do hope you can wander back to Stanley one day again soon.

Great place to spend a night. Friendly welcome. Spacious room though the low ceilings made it look small. Nice views of bay from windows though we had to stand for the views, would have been heaps better if we could view it from the lounge in the room. Breakfast was also

Thankyou Amit for leaving your thoughts here on TripAdvisor I am pleased overall your stay was positive, the beautiful attic rooms are quite unique, and do boast the best views that the building offers, i do wish they were lower so you could sit back in a comfortable chair and watch the world go by! I do hope the remainder of your travels were just as enjoyable. Safe Travels Sandy

Which rooms for a couple don't have interior stairs
Good morning HeddaN As glenozexp has indicated the Bentley Suite is situated along side the foyer doors, we do have 6-7 steps to our foyer door, we also have a suite on the side of the building that has two steps only! The majority of our rooms are on the ground floor..have a great day :)
