I stayed here for one night, in one of the rooms with a private bathroom. For the island (which doesn't have that many options, anyway), this is just OK. The person who greeted us (who I assume is the Mark guy that's the owner) was very nice, and he even switched on the heater in our room (number 1, by... More

My friends and I were staying at the campground, and had a very rough and stormy night. The next day after recovering our campsite we really needed something good and filling. We went to the only buffet on the island, and we were very surprised! Food was homey and filling, nothing that felt like we were going to be hungry... More

There is very little I can say that is good about this place. I stayed in one of the cottages near the ferry and needless to say, it's a flop house. Although from the outside it looks quite nice with a decent landscape, inside the "cottage" is a range of furniture that seems like someone had since college 20 years... More

I talked to many (over 20) different groups of people about their stay here. Almost every one was extremely disappointed with what they were getting for the price they had paid. I ate here once, and the food was fairly average, but the prices were pretty outrageous. Island pricing, they say. If you can't find anywhere else to stay, then... More

We just got home from our first trip to Pelee Island and stayed two nights at Anchor and Wheel. Please don't expect a typical hotel experience when you get here! This is a small family-run B&B with a kitschy, homey atmosphere. The owner, Mark, is not at all gruff. He's quietly friendly, and works fifteen hour days to run this... More

I had worked at the Anchor and Wheel in for a few summer's and loved loved loved the place!!! Mark is a great guy, may come off as abrasive but he was actually quite wonderful! The staff was happy and helpful. I also came to stay here after and received impeccable service. Food was tasty, the tiki bar was fun... More

This is a long overdue review, as we stayed there in July of 2009; We rented a room in the building which is not the bed and breakfast, we were in a first floor room with private bath. All things considered, not bad at all, I mean you're on an island and yes, it is going to be damp here... More

if you do you will be put in an out building and the rooms are dark, dank and moldy smelling. We moved over to the main house and the room was at least dry. We were not offered a refund for the difference in price. The management was thoughtless and sloppy. He offered a free night when we return to... More

We've stayed at the Anchor and Wheel and dined in their restaurant. We found the food to be good with large portions and a bit pricey BUT you have to consider that all the supplies are brought over on the ferry, so an extra $1 or $2. on a meal is a fair charge. We were there last week and... More

I worked at the Anchor and Wheel inn for 2 summers and it was the best time of my life I found the co-workers were amazing and the food was exceptional. Mark may come off short and abrasive but is actually a great boss. I have also stayed as a guest and LOVED every minute of it I am actually... More
