We thought we were in a Fawlty Towers theme week-end Hotel. The service was absolutely rubbish, as was the food served. Bar prices were high and confusing, choices of beers poor and limited. Entertainment went from average to torture over the three night stay. The person who claimed he was a General Manager, also played the parts of the Waiter,... More

The place was smelly and evening meal was avoided and we could not face their breakfast bar and the waiter with a real attitude problem. WiFi signal was non-existence so if you need it you have to checking in desk.

We were to stay in this hotel last night, but after we paid for the room (at check in) and finally went to the room we could not believe they actually offer this sort of rooms to their guests. The smell of fried chips hit us the moment we opened the door. The bath was filthy and there was no... More

Hello Sebastian S Thank you for your feedback about your recent experience with us. We have a selection of rooms at the Anchorage hotel. You booked a Small Double at the discounted rate of £50.00. The receptionist on duty was correct in saying that the Small Double rooms currently only have a bath and not a shower, hence the discounted... More

Had a weekend away at this family run 3 star hotel and was very happy with the hotel, the food and the lovely staff team. To be honest I was not expecting too much as this was with a voucher. However I really liked the hotel, converted from a Georgian house with a number of 1970s type extensions, in pleasant... More
