Blue Anchor Inn is a convenient place to spend the night when traveling up further north and Paul and Liz provide comfortable and clean accommodation. The 24hr electricity and air-conditioning is welcome as are the delicious dinners and drinks by the bar. I was impressed by the security and had a good nights sleep knowing that our luggage was safe... More

We spend one night in this place on our trip back from Oyster bay. The food and the bar was excellent and very delicious. The only comment I have is the rooms are not modern at all. It have all the necessary stuff, two double beds with mosquito nets, air-conditioner, toilet and shower with shower curtain. Clean but not modern.

I stayed over for a week while I was in Mozambique for business. Definitely the best BB for miles around. The owners are very friendly and so are their two dogs who make it feel like a home away from home. The hotel has nice clean rooms and comfortable beds. I would definitely recommend it.

The place is about an hour away from Maputo on the N1 along the coast. It is a great stopover place. the rooms are nice and clean. The food provided is excellent and owners are nice and welcoming. A sandy road leads to the Inn, but we had a regular car and managed allright. It is not really a place... More

stayed at the premises in may 2013 , to break our journey from jhb to inhambane, the accommodation is very basic and rustic . for the rate they charge its not worth it. no facilities at the lodge, except hot water.

April 2013 Blue Anchor is still the best part of our trip, always welcoming, excellent food, clean and comfortable rooms. Paul and Liiz go the extra mile - well done! But we will not be back as we hated the rest of the experience of Mozambique, it was dirty, been stopped by the cops non stop was totally unreasonable and... More

If you think that this is "just out of Maputo" lodge you're way way off. This lodge is fine for people crossing in from SA and continuing north. If you have any intenetion of visiting Maputo at all you will be dissapointed. The lodge is nice and comfortable and good value for money but not nice for a stay in... More

On the 6th April, 2013 my family, 11 people, stopped over for a night en route from Inhambane to Johannesburg South Africa and it felt like stepping into a fantastic dream after a rather hectic road journey. We had asked for dinner thinking we would make Maputo by 7pm, but unfortunately were delayed on our road trip by around 3... More

Stopped over on the way back from vilanculos , pleasantly surprised by the quality of the rooms, food and hosts. Would recommend blue anchor to anyone traveling through Mozambique. Prawn curry was particularly good! Aircon in rooms and wide mosquito nets over beds. Everything you need.
