We spent 3 nights at Anchorage recently and were really blown away by the sanctuary that has been created here. It is set in an awesome location where one can indeed unwind and seek calm. The hosts were amazing - I did read about them on other reviews but truly they were great. You felt as if you were at... More

We stayed one night in an upstairs self catering unit. The accommodation is clean and functional, the location is ideal if not wanting to stay in town, with good views of the river. Anette is very friendly and accommodating, and made sure our stay was enjoyable.

Dear Both, thanks very much for your review and thanks for staying. Much appreciated. We would have loved to have given you one of our rooms with a terrace or balcony but these units were all booked. We wish you a nice holiday further before you get back home and back to the rat race. Hope to see you again... More

The location is superb, the views amazing and the rooms clean and well-appointed, but what really sets the Anchorage apart is the atmosphere created by Craig and Annette - such a friendly, relaxed and welcoming vibe. You feel like you're on a friend's farm (of course you can take the kayak out for a spin) and you can just feel... More

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.

Dear Werner, Thanks very much for taking the time to send a review. It is much appreciated. We are glad you generally enjoyed your stay with us. You mentioned that the accommodation is “a bit dated” – we would appreciate if you could specify this a bit as we only then can make improvements, i.e. linen etc. You are the... More

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.
