Date of stay: November 2011Trip type: Travelled with friends
We had friends visiting from Germany and took them to North Stradbroke island for a long weekend. We booked the Anchorage because of its location and the 2 bedroom apartment was still available at a reasonable price. The apartment was somewhat older but it had all the facilities we needed and the kitchen was fully equipped. The beach (Main Beach) close to the apartment was not great for swimming, so we went to Cylinder Beach instead, which was only a few minutes drive. Too bad we didn't have sea view as it was blocked by trees. But you could hear the waves from the balcony. The managers were a lovely couple as well. One negative thing: the Italian restaurant attached to the complex took forever to bring our meals and they only had 3 tables. The tuna steak we ordered was more than well-done, even though the waitress said it should be cooked medium rare (which is what we preferred too). The dessert that we chose was apparently a best seller, but it was an old pancake heated up in the microwave and topped with ice cream and synthetic chocolate sauce. Not recommended. There are heaps of better places to eat on Straddie.
Room Tip: Ask for apartments on the top floor if you'd like sea view.
