Having read a few reviews after booking, I was a little apprehensive about our visit. There was no need, from the moment we arrived we were made more than welcome. Shown to our room straight away, basic,but clean and all the usual you would expect, tea & coffee, hair dryer etc.To top it off a room with a view looking... More

Quality fish goujons sprinkled with lemon. Ketchup in a mini bowl, a good restaurant does this in my eyes. Also a great view after walking out adding to the whole aesthetics of the evening , a very nice place and i couldn't big it up more.

The room was good and the staff very friendly. Have stayed for 2 nights and enjoyed lovely breakfast even though we got up a bit too late for it, the ladies didn't seem to be bothered by it at all. The view from the room (double/family at the front), was delightful, as well as from the dining area. The pub... More

When booking a hotel I do tend to check tripadvisor the good and bad reviews. Stopping at the Anchor in Kippford there seemed to be complaints about staff attitudes, well I tend to treat as a find and from reception, bar, waitress, owner, they were great could not be faulted. The food was good, well cooked and you will not... More

Just enjoyed a short break to Kippford staying at the wonderful Anchor Hotel. The hospitality from Sharon, Rob and their staff is second to none. There was a great Halloween Party on Saturday and everyone was welcomed and joined in. The regulars at the Anchor were equally friendly and it was simply a joy, with kids, dogs little witches and...

We stayed at the Anchor to meet up with family but our stay also coincided with Halloween. Staff were friendly and welcoming and the accommodation perfect for us and our dogs. Breakfasts are great and really set you up for walking the coastal path etc. On Halloween staff and customers really got into the spirit with inspired decorations, costumes and... More

We called in on spec and there was only one room left - a family with a double and bunk beds (room 8). The room was lovely - well decorated and spacious with all the amenities needed, and a lovely view as well. We had an excellent meal in the restaurant, although the service was a little slow, mainly due... More

The area is stunning. Good for walking and just enjoying the scenery. Nice stay in a nice pub with nice food, particularly good breakfast. The service was good too. The room was clean and facilities good. Would benefit from an update though.

We stayed in kippford with family for a weekend break, our special treat was Sunday lunch at the anchor. We were made very welcome, the staff were pleasant and helpful and we had a very relaxing time in the family room which has been refurbished since our last visit. Food was excellent and the wine very good and the service... More
