Excellent value... More

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

Firstly may I thank the Anchorage Hotel in Babbacombe for alerting me to what life could be like if I’m poor when I’m old and I end up in one of the less salubrious state funded old people’s homes. I’m afraid this review is rather long since I feel I have rather a lot to say. Skip to the next... More

Average hotel with friendly staff who work very hard . The place needs some investment as it is quite dated . As others have commented the food portions were very misery and not of high quality . Overall though we had a nice stay here .
