Very friendly and helpful staff at Shorty's Motel. My room was simple but nice, warm, and comfortable. During the evening there can be a lot of vehicles parked up using the diner but at night it is quiet. Breakfast consisted of cereal and toast with tea or coffee. Top tip: Try the cheesecake.

I had a nice warm twin room with en suite bathroom and TV. The best thing about Shorty's however is the excellent, friendly staff and the diner adjacent where so many of the local people and air base personnel go to eat. This helped me to meet lots of interesting people during my time on the Islands. A great experience....

I stayed in Stanley for two weeks and it was basic and affordable motel that met my needs. The free breakfast is outstanding. You have a choice between an American-style and Full English breakfast. The diner on-site is good for other meals as well. Staff are very friendly.

Its located a 10 minute walk to the nearest Pub/s. The rooms with en suite are basic and clean. The building is cheap with squeaky noises, badly fitting doors and windows and little acoustic privacy. The diner is often very busy with mainly junk food on offer. Its probably very good if you like that sort of thing.

Winter in Stanley could be enjoyed in more selubrious suroundings - Shorty's is not close to anything useful. The rooms are basic, and the restaurant is a typical fast food restaurant - lots of calories but few refinements

what a fantastic place the Island turned out to be, ( once you got used to the wind) charming people, helpfull kind and nothing is too much trouble for them. It is quite a culture shock after seventy seven years of being in Europe and being used to the attitude of the european people. If I was sixty years younger...

Shirley and the staff are an asset to Marlene the owner. We had a very comfortable double room (no 6) with its own ensuite bathroom. The room was cleaned and refreshed every other day as we were staying for 7 days. Overall the room was a good size with everything available to hand and the shower / water was always...

We stayed at Shorty's one night before we left the Falklands because our first choice of accommodation was already booked. We found it to be comfortable and pleasant, but not especially fantastic. I think their typical clients are military personnel that come from Mount Pleasant who stay in Stanley for weekends off so it's fairly bare bones. Shorty's is located...
