4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We attended a wedding and stayed here for 2 nights. We were well received and although the accommodation is a bit dated, it was in a nice farm like setting with very friendly dogs and had all the necessary amenities. It is a typical guest house environment and for the price, it is good value for money.

I recently stayed at The Anchorage and had the best experience. Every detail is catered to even though it is self catering. The rooms are spacious and clean and the owners are so friendly and helpful. They cook the best breakfast! View of the bay is beautiful from the rooms. Cannot wait to go back again.

Great place - People & Conversation - a truly wonderful place to Stop ! - if your on your way to or from Capetown and need an overnight this is Definitely worth the short Detour from the N2 - then carry on your Journey on the Country Roads and use the little Ferry at Malgas - Another Experience!!

We do stay every time with Annette an Craig and the Kids. The place is absolutely quiet, clean, save with a very warm character. Watching the river passingby sometimes from the left and sometimes from the right depending on the tide is very seldom to watch. Having a leisure walk on the beach and bath in the Indian Ocean a...

This is a real cozy place to stay! The hosts Annette and Craig are more than just friendly giving you the feeling of being welcome all the time. The rooms are nicely done up and clean. We were looking for a place to rest away from the everyday's hustle and bustle and we found it! Sure we will come again!

We stayed at The Anchorage last year and upon our return visit this year we were treated like old friends. We were not disappointed this time either, this is a tranquil haven, Annette and Craig did everything to make our stay memorable, I hope we will visit again.

Annette, Craig and eldest son, Johnny, were wonderful hosts. Bad rain meant that kayaking wasn't an option but Annette spent ages answering our questions and making recommendations, even letting us use her lounge for the internet when the weather interfered. Our room was lovely, the view was brilliant and the gentle guesthouse dogs kept my boyfriend entertained for hours. We... More
