My girlfriend and I stayed at the Anchorage for three nights and I honestly couldn't ask for a more pleasant stay. We are seasoned travelers and have travelled all around the UK and stayed in all types of Bed and Breakfast's and home stays but without a doubt, The Anchorage was the best. The house overlooks the Loch with brilliant... More

We stayed for 3 nights at The Anchorage. It was an excellent experience. Richard's attention to detail in all respects made for a relaxing and enjoyable stay. Everything from the real table linen to the well-chosen music playing quietly in the background made it a stay to remember.

Great place to stay. Wonderful hospitality, attentive but not intrusive. Very friendly host, Richard, who also cook a great breakfast ...the best scrambled eggs and smoked salmon I have tasted! The room was spotless and comfortable. The view over the loch, stunning. I would definitely recommend it.

We spent two nights at The Anchorage and left wishing we'd booked for longer. This B&B is perfectly situated overlooking the Loch with wonderful views from our clean, spacious front of house bedroom. The house is wonderfully quirky, oozing character yet modern, clean and bright. Our host, Richard, was brilliant! Cheerful, friendly and someone for whom nothing seems too much... More

The most amazing bed and breakfast that I have ever stayed at in Scotland! The room was quite spacious and clean, the bathroom too was immaculate! The property opens up right beside the loch so you can eat a delicious breakfast with a beautiful view in the morning. Parking is not a problem since they have loads of room for... More

Great B&B overlooking the loch (watched gannets diving into the water!) easy to find off the Dunoon ferry. Superb customer care in wonderful historic house. Excellent touches in room and outstanding breakfast.

I stumbled upon the Anchorage by chance, but have since returned on several occasions. The rooms are nicely decorated and very clean, the beds are comfy and the bathrooms are modern and well-cared for. The real highlight however is the host.A friendly person, providing one of the best breakfast tables in Scotland and always ready for a wee chat and... More

We only had a one-night stay here, but we were very pleased with our choice of B&B in this lovely, elegant house. We were made to feel very welcome by Richard, a genial and engaging host. Our room (Heron), was spacious and comfortable, with a stunning view over the loch. The bed was sumptuous and we had a wonderful night's... More
