Terriific stay in Stanley
My partner and I had a delightful 2 night stay in the Admiral suite at The Ark - the amenities were first class, and the large private room really suited us. The room had excellent views, and The Ark is walking distance to restaurants, cafes and the local pub. Our hosts Rhonda and Chris made us very welcome and the breakfast service was first class. We both highly recommend The Ark - a wonderful place to stay in Stanley!

Location and comfort
Superbly renovated, immaculately clean and comfortable with expansive water views to the south and afternoon sun streaming into the spacious lounge. Nestled beneath the Nut with the wharf on the east and the charming town centre to the west, an easy level walk found us spoiled for choice with cafes, hotel and fresh seafood, plus a variety of retail opportunities. We stayed for 4 nights in the Admiral suite and enjoyed being spoiled by Rhonda and Chris for whom nothing was too much trouble, from our complimentary bottle of wine to Rhonda's homemade jams, yoghurt and bread accompanying the generous continental breakfast.

Superb accommodation and hosts....
My elderly mum and I stayed at The Ark for 3 nights during April and loved everything about it. Rhonda and Chris are very friendly and were very generous with their time and their hospitality. The B&B is spotless and beautifully appointed. We had the suite upstairs with beautiful views across the bay. The breakfasts were excellent. Rhonda makes the bread, yogurt, fruit compote, preserves all herself and they are delicious!!
The guest who gave the unfavorable review recently must be a conceited brat with entitlement issues to write what he wrote. If you want a beautiful place to stay where the hosts are passionate about what they do, you must stay here.

We stayed in this delightful place for two nights. The 'Anderson' room had great views and was clean and comfortable. Our hosts were friendly and their recommendations of what to do and where to eat were appreciated. Breakfast was delicious - good continental selection - highlight poached fruit, homemade yoghurt and homemade bread. Highly recommend staying here!!

The Poorest B&B in Two plus we....
The room was clean but as many reviewers stated the owners could care less about the guest and are proud of serving fruit loops, or the local equivalent, for breakfast even though it was the most expensive of all stays. A cold breakfast of fresh juice and pastry can be good...this one was not. Even the coffee machine produced a substandard brew. Stay at the local hotel....great food and location. If you rate the property based on maintenance it would be very high but poorly on my list for any other criteria.
Reservations were made by another B&B. I can only surmise that the owners must be related to recommend such poor accommodations.
I travel some 6 months a year on business and pleasure and am guilty of not rating the many great experiences but mainly the ones I would recommend avoiding.
