We were on a day out in the area and, having visited the Anchor many years ago, decided to pop in again for lunch to give it another try. We ordered a sharing platter of fried seafood and a crayfish and smoked salmon salad, both of which came from the specials menu. Staff we dealt with were friendly and service... More

Just returned from another short break at the Anchor Hotel in lovely Kippford, and once again, we have well and truly re -charged our batteries. The welcome at the Anchor is second to none - all the staff without exeption are friendly, helpful and make your stay really enjoyable. The food is superb - honest and wholesome- exactly what you...

We have been to the Anchor many times before and have normally been satisfied .This time we had to fight our way to the bar for service.Food was disappointing,floors and toilets messy,we feel that standards have plummeted and the management need to be more professional rather than entertaining their cronies at the bar. In future a drink outside looking at... More

As locals we like to support our pubs and hotels by eating out a few times a month and we have had some great food and fantastic services unfortunately this wasn't the case at the Anchor. I'm sorry Trip Advisor fans but I take most reviews with a pinch of salt and have not until now felt strongly enough to... More

We were totally blown away by Kippford. We hadn’t booked, but thankfully the Anchor had one room left…and the best room too, with dual aspect views across the estuary. It is an old creaky building, and the décor is rather dated, if homely…BUT this place is a gem. It was immaculately clean, the staff were all friendly and the setting... More

Wanted to stay near Dalbeattie for the mountain biking. Staff were very friendly and helpful evening meals in the hotel were basic pub fare. Room was clean and comfortable, breakfast was huge and tasty

We stayed here for one night on 1st August with our cocker spaniel and were treated very well and really enjoyed our visit. We had an en-suite room with great views overlooking the water. Dinner was sea food chowder with lovely juicy scallops which was excellent. There was no problem with the dog in the bar area. The full Scottish... More

My partner & I stayed at the Anchor for one night last week. It is a lovely friendly hotel and we were made to feel very welcome by the owner Sharon. We wish we could have stayed longer and will definitely be back.

My husband and I booked in at this hotel for 2 nights as a birthday treat for myself. Could not have asked for better. Room was nicely decorated and spotlessly clean. Bed comfortable and view from both front and side windows was spectacular (room 2). Breakfast was amazing-great choice and more than enough to set you up for the day.... More

I went to the Anchor for my birthday meal with my family and friends. The meal was lovely and the service was great. The only problem was the dogs, I have never seen as many dogs in an eating place, it was awful. Thankfully we were in a separate room for our meal, if we had not been I certainly... More
