On a recent trip to Tassie we stayed at The Ark Stanley. What a wonderful place to stay! The Admiral Room is immaculate and no detail had been overlooked. Decor is fitting to the theme and design of the room. This room has its own lounge room, ensuite and breathtaking views over the bay. There is also a balcony to...

This is a beautiful property, centrally located in Stanley with stunning views also. The Admiral Suite was a good size, with a balcony from which to take in the beautiful sunsets. The Ark is recently renovated, with excellent resources, very clean and comfortable.

Wow, this place is really something special! We were lucky enough to rent the Admiral's room. We had sweeping views over the bay, both in the good weather and the bad, a cute little outdoor patio with views up the Nut, a gorgeous, modern bathroom, a very comfortable bed, and a fantastic living area, with a big TV and a...

I'm siiting here writing a review looking out of the window, from our suite, watching the tide roll in.

They have done an amazing reno of the guesthouse, their taste of style, decor, use of space and room inclusions have been well thought of,...

We stayed 1 night at the Ark during our Tasmania holiday. The place was beautifully renovated by the owners who left their jobs in Melbourne to run the B&B because they fell in love with Stanley after a visit. They understand totally what travellers look for in a place to stay - cleanliness, comfort, full amenities... The room was stylishly...

Our room was light, spacious and beautifully appointed with views across to the port. The bathroom was also spacious with underfloor heating and a heated towel rail which was welcome as we got wet when out walking. The hosts were friendly and helpful and the continental breakfast offered home made muesli, fruits and yoghurt. We would definitely stay again if...

This is the last stop for our 9 days 8 nights holiday in Tassie and its the best place I have stayed. Beautiful Art Deco and flawless display. We can feel that the owner has put in her heart into this business. Love it and will definitely recommend to friends.

A modern restoration of an old 1920s house, capturing the heritage feeling whilst providing new facilities and cute interior touches - a combination of Scandinavian furs and 70s style all done with a knowing wink.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Guest House The Ark Stanley is situated in Stanley Tasmania, a restored period residence, positioned directly opposite Tatlow’s Beach and at the base of the plug of an extinct volcano standing approximately 150 metres high, known as The Nut. Our location takes in sweeping views across Sawyers Bay, and of course upward to the impressive and towering Nut. The Circular Head area, and the township of Stanley in particular, is a much-loved tourist destination and has something for all, be they adventurer, explorer, naturalist, historian, fisherman, romantic or holidaymaker. The residence has recently been tastefully restored, renovated and enhanced. With an eclectic decor, paying homage to yesteryear and planning for the future, an outstanding home has been created which is proudly offered for guest accommodation. We look forward to making your stay enjoyable. ... more   less
