My husband, son and I stayed here recently for a long weekend escape. The Anchorage Resort on the beach at Point Lookout provided us with very clean, comfortable and spacious accommodation and when we didn't want to be on the beach we had the resort pool to utilise. It was a lovely walk up the beach to the very gentle...

Very nice place to stay and a great location. The owners were very friendly and helpful. The spot itself is a walk straight out the front onto home beach which is always nice and a great place to start your morning or afternoon walk. Very highly recommended.

Absolutely beautiful here. Can hear the beach from our room and just a short stroll from the hotel to the beach through a really neat little walk way. Feels like you're in paradise. Yes it's a little old but it's super clean and just perfect. Will be coming back for sure. Also the owners are very friendly and helpful when...

Clean and comfortable but no air-con. Genuinely beachfront but views obscured. Building a bit dated. No oven, cook top only, no bath, no lift. Not the place for couples or anyone else wanting quiet. Family friendly = screaming kids. Smallish pool, unheated, has a BBQ. Beautiful island and beaches. More happening at Pt Lookout than Amity.

Enjoyed our stay in a 3 bed unit with ocean views and whale watching from the balcony. Great location with boardwalk beach access. Very clean pool and bbq area. Approximately 30 min walk to cafes and gorge walk.

Comfortable - especially the beds. You hear the ocean all night and day, because all balconies have views. Less than 100 steps boardwalk and you are on the beach. Not into salted stuff? There is a pool and a sauna. Owners are so friendly it is hard to leave :-). Parking on premises. Full kitchen. CLEAN. Relatively quiet. Bus stop...

We have stayed at the Anchorage On Straddie twice and both times it was great, the rooms are clean and spacious both times we had a balcony so I assume all rooms have one. The resort has it's own private walk way to the beach which is divine it has all the amenities you need, and the price is very...

I recently spent 4 nights here and the location is very good. 50m to the beach and the top floor has sea veiws, but there is no lift so get ready for stairs. How ever you can not see the whales here for that you must go 4k up the road to Point look out. The place is very basic...
