I don't want to give a 'poor' or 'terrible' rating to The Anchorage as I don't think this hotel was either poor or terrible but it is in need of some improvements as already stated in previous reviews so have given an 'average' three stars as most of the food was ok and there were three nights of entertainment. However...

We decided to have Sunday lunch here, as we saw the ad in a Torquay brochure for a 3 course meal and coffee/tea for £11. The staff were all very lovely and we were seating to our reserved table. The starters were broccoli/stilton soup or fishcakes, the mains were roast lamb/beef or gammon/fish and the desserts were strawberries and cream...

The Anchorage Hotel is way overpriced at £38 for two nights (Special Offer) Looks nice outside, website only has two pictures of the actual hotel, then some...

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Anchorage Hotel. This would be my second visit. My room was superb! I managed a reunion with my dance tutor Doreen, on the Tuesday 10th, afternoon session held in the Main Lounge. It was also a joy to enjoy the company of the other team members who also attend the Ballroom Dancing circuit...

We came here because they had Sunday night entertainment and although full of a much older crowd they all enjoyed the music and were up dancing. We arrived to find all the drinks were at a ridiculously low price, a glass of wine was £1.40! Happy days. Had a good night

My wife and I have just returned from a 3 night stay at this hotel as part of a group of around 30, on a coach trip weekend. This was not our first choice hotel, owing to a double booking by the tour company The hotel is quite shabby, without the chic. Our room (62),was quite basic. The bed sloped...
