Stanley Accommodation of the Year award 2019

On Wednesday 17th April 2019, at a gathering at Government House, The Falkland Islands Tourist Board announced the winners of the annual tourism awards.

The Malvina house Hotel received the award for Accommodation offering the Best Overall Experience in Stanley.

Mike Rendell also saw his long career in tourism honoured on Wednesday as he received the 2019 Contribution to Tourism award.  Mike Rendall used to own and run the Malvina House Hotel for 20 years from 1983 to 2004.  Mr Rendell had expanded the initial small guest house business considerably over the years, adding rooms and turning the old conservatory into a popular restaurant.  By the time of the sale of the business to Stanley Services in 2004, the Malvina House had become Stanley’s leading hotel, giving a firm foundation to build on in subsequent development of the business.  In 20o4 the hotel had 15 bedrooms and now in 2019 it has  increased in size to 75, the restaurant extended by three times its original size and the soon to be completed addition of a 55 seat cinema.  Carl Stroud the manager of the Malvina House Hotel, was delighted for Mike and his award, especially as Carl used to work for Mike when he owned the hotel.
