The Window room aptly named presents a window to yesteryear. A period experience at the Crown & Anchor may help you feel like a time traveller instead of a princess highway tourist. As with all things in life, who you travel with is more important than your destination. Our hosts, Lyn and Lindsay were joyful and interesting companions with a... More

After a very enjoyable first visit, my wife and I were somewhat surprised and disappointed with the lukewarm reception and general hospitality the second time we stayed at the Crown and Anchor. The location is gorgeous, rooms are lovely but a bit small with all the antique bits and pieces in them. Breakfast is brilliant. Most telling though, given the... More

Thank you for your comments. We welcome constructive feedback. Sorry to hear you were disappointed with your second visit, especially after you “loved” your first stay only two months before. This second review took us by surprise. After having stayed in the Brick room the first time we thought you would love the Window room, which is our largest, most... More

My wife and I spent a wonderful three days relaxing and enjoying the ambience of the Crown & Anchor which was matched by the hospitality of Lindsay and Lyn.

The prime objective of our trip was whale watching in Eden, but I must admit, I was equally excited about staying at the Crown & Anchor! And my expectations were met even before we arrived, with some helpful advice from Lindsay about places to eat, if we were to arrive late, and so on. Upon arrival we were warmly greeted... More

Crown & Anchor Inn located in Eden is the perfect halfway stop between Melbourne & Sydney if travelling the coast road. We prefer to stay in B&B's or guesthouse rather than motels as there is more room to spread about and you get to meet other travellers as well as your hosts. The Crown & Anchor is a historic inn...

We loved our stay in this gorgeous example of Australia's early coach house heritage. Beautiful room, wonderful position, champagne welcome, a house full of period furniture, lots of birds to look at during breakfast and terrific hospitality all made this a stay we'll remember for a long time.

Long trip up from Mornington Peninsula was met with great hosts, a loverly room and Champagne & Nibbles. Our host filled us in on great walks and where to dine. Woke up after a fab sleep, to sit in a beautiful breakfast room overlooking the bay. Only one negative and that is we could only stay one night, next time... More

Eden has more than enough history, views, walks (and fresh seafood!) to warrant at least a two-night stay, even when the weather is cooler, and the Crown and Anchor proved the perfect base. The overwhelmingly positive earlier reviews are accurate - we couldn't fault the owners' hospitality, their enthusiasm for the property and its past, the cosiness of our room... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Crown & Anchor Inn is the oldest building in Eden, first licensed as a coaching inn in 1845. The inn still offers accommodation to travellers who have access to the entire historic building including the lounge and dining rooms with open log fires and antiques. Each bedroom has its own en-suite, wonderful period furnishings and most with water views. The Crown & Anchor Inn is a special place loved by many who return to enjoy our hospitality, old world charm and seafaring history. The inn commands views of the Pacific Ocean and Twofold Bay allowing visitors to watch both sunrise and sunset. The Crown & Anchor Inn is close to town, shops, restaurants, cafes, Eden wharf area, the Killer Whale Museum, unspoilt beaches and pristine national parks. It is time you came to see for yourself. ... more   less
