The character and aspect of the room evoke empathetic imaginings of how Lyons may have spent his first tumultuous years within the cottage and how the home and his family life shaped his destiny.

Amongst all the expected staples, the custom kitchenette includes a microwave, coffee pod machine and bar fridge. All stays include a simple continental breakfast of fresh bread, Tasmanian jams & yoghurt, two-fruits, milk, juice, a selection of cereals, tea and coffee. Enjoy in the privacy of your suite or wander outside to take in the fresh salt air and views on the front verandah.

The Ship Inn Stanley evokes intrigue and beauty. Indulge yourself in the suite of your choice and bask in the story of a bygone era.

I like to be creative and am a sucker for punishment who loves doing up old buildings, rescuing a small piece of Tasmanian history for our family and others to enjoy. Love living in Stanley...Happy days!
