Lovely weekend good food served well. Clean rooms and and public areas. Nice entertainment in the evenings, but no bingo. The only grouse, the nightmare journey down.6 1/2 hours in a school bus with no toilet. But that's leisuretime for you.

We stayed here as members of a coach party which obviously is a major part of the hotels economy. We found the rooms adequate and spotless. The food was very good with a reasonable choice at breakfast and evening meal. The staff were polite and very helpful. It must be said that the hotels location ,in a predominantly residential area...

We have stayed at the Anchorage several times over the last decade and have just returned from a three day visit at the hotel.It is important to remember that the hotel has a two star rating and offers full board at a very competitive rate.We have had the odd problem over the years , but we have always had a...

Can't really understand the low TripAdvisor ranking for this hotel.We stayed last weekend with a coach party.Everyone seemed to have a great time. Our bedroom was a bit basic but clean,and the food and service was very good. I think the sunday lunch for £10 was available for everyone not just for the locals. Jamie was brilliant and made everyone... More

We upgraded so our room was decent, bit more room and better amenities. Breakfast was very good as was the evening meal except for the Sunday. We all went to Exeter on... More

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

Ok the Anchorage is not the sort of hotel I would normally stay in but my local football club were playing at Torquay United around the corner so around ten of us booked for two nights. What a impressed me was the staff they worked like Trojans too ensure all guests were looked after well done. My room was warm... 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!
