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...

An unexpectedly beautiful stay in a stunning town. My room (2) was well appointed, the bed extremely comfortable and the bathroom divine. My only disappointment was the main foyer being dark and unheated on arrival and despite searching we couldn't work out how to light the gas heater. I look forward to returning in summer.

I stayed at this character accommodation when it first opened for business about 3 years ago. The experience was simply amazing, so I was really excited to be able to return for another visit recently. Unfortunately I was very disappointed this time round... I was the only person booked in on this night, being a week night in winter in...

The days we visited Stanley were cold and windy. We didn't expect anything else in Tassie in winter. But the views around Stanley are breathtaking and this accommodation was warm and cosy and very comfortable, and the particular room (in a separate house) we were in had a great view. Loved the in-floor heating in the bathroom, and the quality...

Stanley isn't the biggest place in the world and there really is a feeling of stepping back in time when you arrive. This carried over into our arrival @VDL - we got into town a little later than anticipated (4pm) to find an envelope attached to the reception door with our details on it, quirky but fine, I imagine you...

Well appointed and very comfortable room. Couldn't fault the room. Like comments key taped to front door, which we felt was a quaint touch. Not often do your expectations get exceeded, but the did so here. Loved the standard of furnishing from the entry foyer to rooms. Congrats to the owners, keep up the high standard.

We stayed in King Loft 2, and it has a view, but only through a wide high window. It's a great location and beautiful building, which seems largely an extended showroom for the Brown Dog shop that exists for people with a lot of money to spend on bric a brac. It seems to have cleaners there constantly, but it's...
