A lovely guest house in a great location. Close to shops, restaurants, etc, yet still nice & quiet. The room was bright & and airy. It had everything we needed & was comfortable. Breakfast was very nice & best of all, was our very friendly host Linda. Many thanks for an enjoyable stay! Steve & Tina.

We stayed at the anchorage for a long weekend in mid March and dispite the typical Lakes weather enjoyed our stay. Linda was very welcoming and helpful. Both room number 2(double) and 4(Triple) were clean and satisfactory with views of the surrounding mountains. The only down side to the Anchorage is the slightly narrow car park if you have a...

The anchorage is a lovely b&b with a car park round the back. Very useful especially with all the cars parked on the street! Linda and andrew are very nice, friendly and were very helpful. The room was very big with a stylish en-suite. Tv with DVD player and brilliant comfy beds! A nice touch was the bookshelf on the... More

Our eagerly anticipated stay did not meet expectations. The loft room was small, the floor sloped, items rolling down the bedside table, wardrobe was a grotty cupboard, with a previous guests discarded belongings. The 'ensuite' shower was a fight to get in each morning and evening. The television was, as a previous reviewer claimed, the smallest you couldn't see and... More

Management response:

The Anchorage dates from 1849 and sloping floors in houses of this age could be considered part of the character and charm of an older property. Unfortunately the wardrobe is in a corner of the room with a dark interior which is possibly why we missed seeing the items of clothing left in there (not a normal occurrence!) & these... More

We stayed in this newly available self catering property in august. Although only 2 rooms and shower room it was surprisingly spacious with lovely high ceilings. The amenities were clean and of a good standard with all the equipment we needed. The nifty kitchen in a cupboard is not suitable for extensive catering but plenty good enough to keep you... More
