We stayed at the Anchorage for four nights during the spring bank holiday week. We were greeted with a warm welcome from Diane. The room was bright and airy and very clean. Whether your room is on the front or rear, you'll be treated to either a sea view or the picturesque harbour. Breakfast is of a very high standard...

We stay here every year along with a number of our friends and look forward to the homely nature of our stay. The views are equally as good whether you you looking out the front at the beach or at the harbour at the back. The breakfast is another thing to look forward to. Thanks Mike and Di

Lovely room with a fantastic sea view. Great location at the end of the harbour, so easy reach of the sea front or harbour, or the town centre itself. Friendly hosts with nothing too much trouble. A great cooked breakfast, means you can skip lunch.

We have just booked to go back to The Anchorage for our family get together in October. If you want friendly, happy hosts you will find it here. We have been going for many years and would be devastated if we weren't able to stay with this lovely couple, it is like home from home. No it's not a boutique...

Check In: Quick and painless. The Room: We were in Room 6 with a Harbour side view. The room itself was plenty big enough for the two of us. It had a double bed and a single so is probably fine for a small family. The room itself does look a little dated in its décor (wallpapered walls and ceilings)....
