Clean, modern, comfortable room with a great view. It was a wet weekend and the sea and rain were lovely to watch. Kitchenette in room including hot plates if you want to cook. Shower had great water pressure. Owner’s friendly and approachable. Would happily stay again.

We saw the vacancy sign and loved that it is on the waterfront. What a warm welcome awaited us, I was walked to the unit shown where everything was, the heat pump was put on for us. It is immaculate and ever so comfortable with the best sea view imaginable. Definitely recommend

Walked in off street and managed to get a room, very comfortable spacious unit, very clean and bed very comfortable. Right across from the sea, so great views. Lyn was very helpful, booked us into the Pier Hotel for dinner and organised pick up by their curtesy coach. Suggested where to go for breakfast

Stayed for one night in Rm 3. Lyn says it's one of her best rooms and I totally agree. Fabulous view straight out to the water with chairs to relax with a wine outside. Very clean and the most comfortable bed. Lyn was so helpful booking us in for dinner at The Pier and booking our next town accommodation for us. Will definitely be back and highly recommend Anchor Inn to stay.

This is my new home away from home. Well appointed spacious room with a functional kitchenette. I cooked my meals here and walked the length of the beach. Beauty on the ocean. Fairly priced. Thank you Lyn and the gang for a comfortable visit.
