The hotel is very dated. It has a very old feel to it. Creaking floor, old style of furniture and carpet. However it looks clean from what I saw. The bar is big, there is also a separate little room with chairs and a piano next to the bar. it actually looks like a retirement home. And the clientele, from... More

This is our second trip to The Anchorage hotel with family. As requested we had lovely rooms on the ground floor which were very clean. The food was good and although not massive they were big enough as there was 3 courses at the evening meal. We went on a coach party there with Harry Shaw who took us on... More

I was assured by management that the Anchorage hotel was fully wheelchair accessible and had two ground floor accessible rooms. When we arrived I discovered that there were two steps up to the ground floor room. Ramp was provided but it is not very safe to use because of the steepness and angle of the steps and doorway. My electric... More

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...

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
