Cannot recommend enough! I'll be back for sure.

Location is terrific so please don't baulk at the idea that its towards the 'edge of town' ... 10min drive into town along the scenic coastal drive, 2min walk to Lighthouse Beach so nice and quiet while handily located for beach vibes or the short run to town.

The space? Very comfortable beds in spacious rooms with a couch or daybed, small outdoor space and great bathrooms. The B&Bs living/dining/kitchenette space also is roomy with Netflix, DVDs, books overlooking the garden, outdoor paved area.

The thing is, its all going to evolve with Candace & Mike taking over the B&B, something that is clearly close to Candace's heart. Had the pleasure of hearing Candace's plans for adding their tasteful stamp to the layout and design and really excited to see the changes on my return visits to Port Mac. Its shaping up to be a very warm, very beachy and very chic space to stay with some great food options under consideration to make stays here just that bit more special.

The true joy of B&Bs is feeling like you're someone's guest rather than being a visitor, as is the case with hotels or motels. Candace's spirit, enthusiasm and generosity absolutely radiate from her and its so cool to see someone realising a dream and letting others enjoy the great vibes that results when dreams become reality.

Lovely space, stunning place, wonderful people ... this is what you want in a B&B!!

We've stayed in B&B's through The UK, NZ, and around Australia.... this is the best I have experienced.

All quality furnishings & fittings, linen etc, spacious rooms, modern bathrooms and a warm welcoming guest common room.

Pricing is very reasonable and Owners are delightful and very easy to deal with.

I stayed in a downstairs courtyard room last year, this year I stayed in the upstairs room.... both rooms are delightful.

Up the end of the street is a very nice Malaysian Restaurant, Lotus on Lighthouse .... about a 7 minute walk from Anchors.

Compliments to the Owners ... they have thought of everything & have everything you need for a B&B.... and the quality trimmings are the icing on the cake here.

A must stay place......

Have stayed here over 10 times and it's always a delight! Will stay again in the future when travelling for work. Very comfortable, quiet and great breakfast. Very close to the beach also! Great value too.

Hubby and I were going to Port Macquarie for a short holiday. I booked accommodation a bit late, but was lucky enough to have found a room here at a reasonable price, and boy was I glad! This has to be one of the best B&B stays I've ever had, thanks to our gracious hosts and their attention to detail. To start, the room we stayed in (Starboard) was spacious and impeccably clean. The pillows and bed were really comfy, there was also plenty of storage space for our luggage and belongings, and the wifi connection was good. The real bonus though, in my opinion, was the double shower in the bathroom - just divine! The hosts were also kind enough to provide shower gel, shampoo, conditioner, and even moisturiser, for our use. We were also able to do our laundry, which was useful considering we were going to the beach fairly often and needed to wash our togs. Breakfast was provided each morning, but I was slightly disappointed it wasn't a hot cooked breakfast. However, having a self-serve breakfast was useful as it meant that we could wake up whenever we wanted. The kitchen was always fully stocked (e.g. different types of cereal, bread, yogurt, juice, muesli bars, fruit, coffee, tea, milk etc.), so we just helped ourselves to whatever we wanted. Finally, our hosts were friendly and provided us with plenty of valuable info and pamphlets on what we could do during our stay. Overall, this was a fantastic experience, and I can't recommend it highly enough!

Room tip: Starboard is good for couples

Anchors is first class accomodation. I have stayed in Port Macquarie many times and always found accomodation good but not great. Luckily, I was recommended to try Anchors. Wow! This is a first class B&B. Very well presented, great personal service, and great location. Whenever in Port, I'll be heading here.
