I booked this hotel last minute for a weekend away because of the location and the price. It was clean and comfortable and the breakfast was very good but it did feel a little unloved and understaffed, perhaps this was because we visited out of season. We enjoyed our stay, the Saturday night entertainment was an unexpected bonus and it... More

Although the food was excellent and entertainment was good, our room (24) wasn't great and response of management to notifications of problems seemed to be to ignore them. Our bathroom curtain (stained and dirty) didn't meet in the middle when we went to close them, a 9" gap was left. On reporting this to 2 separate people on 2 separate... More

Thank you to Daryl and all the staff for the excellent new year lunch and afternoon tea you provided for St Andrews ladies Club today. Everyone had a great time and the food was wonderful. Lovely and hot! Music and dancing with Hilary was the icing on cake!

This is a beautifully family run hotel which has a great relaxing atmosphere... More

I chose the Anchorage based on value and little thought about it other than being a roof over my head while exploring the shops and attractions of Torquay during the day. This is now one of my favorite hotels after the excellent experience and value. The management was courteous, helpful, and went above and beyond my expectations and needs. The... More
