Read the reviews, they are pretty spot on. The place is undergoing a make over so there are things that need doing yet but the owners are on the case. We stayed in room 2. Lovely view and worth the little extra. Lovely bed, very clean. En suite was okay, just a job that will be finished at a later...

We visit the Blue Anchor area often and normally visit the pub but only for a drink after having a bad meal many months ago. But now new owners have taken over they have made a huge difference to the pub, particularly to the food. We eat her last weekend after previously seeing the quality of meals being brought out...

Up on a height overlooking the bay makes the view very special indeed. Staff super friendly and helpful. New management in last 6 months clearly giving the place a much deserved lease of life. Big car park if you need that.

Room comfortable, and view across the Bristol Channel wonderful, couldn't have had more friendly and helpful staff. Bar food and breakfast couldn't be faulted either. Overall a good place to stay.

Friendly staff tell me it is under new management. Location superb, food excellent and a good range of drink. I tried an unusual Spanish beer. If you can sit in the lowest bar nearest the sea, the view is spectacular.

Now under new management, there have been huge improvements made here, good food, clean, tidy and comfortable rooms, and very helpful staff. A traditional pub trying hard to offer their customers a homely feel, and succeeding. Multi dish meals needs further consideration, but having used this hotel many many times over more than 25 years, I can honestly say it...

Very good meal and reasonably priced. Interesting way to serve the meals but all looked good. The room was fine. Clean and comfortable. We had a bathroom along the corridor but only for our use. Fine as we only stayed one night- would read information more carefully if staying longer and take a dressing gown! Staff all very pleasant and...
