Ship Inn Stanley TAS – a touch of country coastal lux

July 2, 2020 Hotel News No Comments Email Email

Longing for a change of scene, far away from the rat race, or lets face it, the same four walls of your lounge room? The uber-stylish Ship Inn Stanley has seven luxurious suites nestled in a stunning heritage listed seaside Inn. Built as a pub in the 1840s it oozes chic style, charm and history. Lose yourself in the evocative local stories each suite showcases from tales of sea merchants and prime ministers to local shipwrecks and colonial struggles. In true Tasmanian style this is a story-telling experience and the sense of place is strong. Backing onto the remnants of an extinct volcano and gazing out to sea, each suite has stunning views. We’ve got your back, from contactless check in to breakfast ISO style in the private kitchenette of your suite. Explore the mighty Nut, the empty beaches, the nearby rainforests & waterfalls and watch the little penguins come in…if the wind blows in the right direction you can hear their faint warbles from the Inn. Retreat to the warmth and charm of your suite to enjoy your home away from home.

  • Take away options available for dinner & platters by arrangement.
  • Prices range from $190 to $250 per night.
  • Contact Ship Inn direct to take advantage of a three nights for the price of two for stays up to 31st December 2020

Our News…

During this downtime of COVID19 isolation we’ve been super busy, building stone walls and revamping our offering.

We’ve completed the stunning gardens at the rear of the Ship Inn to include a beautiful circular loop walk through the gardens and up to the base of the Nut reserve, taking in sweeping views of the bay. Stone walls created from volcanic Nut rock line the gardens and there are wooden patio areas and spots to sit and enjoy sun downer drinks whilst soaking up the views. Guests can enjoy the dramatic views of the Nut towering over the Inn, while they take in the ocean views.

Another treat for guests is that we are relocating (not far…just over the road into another grand old dame built in the 1800s…but that’s another story). Our stylish apartment, which used to be the bustling bar of the pub, built in 1849 with thick stone walls is to be converted to guest accommodation in the spring. Two king bedrooms, multiple patios and stone courtyard, open fire, stunning lounge and dining area so guests can relax in spacious comfort. We’ve knocked through one metre thick stone walls to open up the space to the old tap room, where the barrels for the pub were once stored, to create a stylish open plan kitchen with ocean views. The kitchen island is over three meters long and topped with celery top pine to compliment the stunning stone benches.  The softly polished floorboards and quirky stone walls could tell a lot of tales of the bustling sailors pub for over 170 years.
