Absolutely fantastic - Anchorage is like having your own private villa by the beach. Incredible attention to detail - everything that you need for a great stay is considered and provided. From biscuits and tea in the room, hot breakfast cooked to your choice and in-room latest travel magazines to advice what game parks to visit nearby and free really... More

We enjoyed our stay at Anchorage and thank you for great breakfast and accomodation! We appreciate the fact that breakfast was always served early in the morning and that somebody came to clean the rooms early in the morning.

The Anchorage in Port Elizabeth is comfortable, quiet and convenient. Candice's breakfasts are irresistible and absolutely delicious. Everything just works - wifi, tv, etc... Probably its most appealing quality is its proximity to the beach, windy walks early morning and late afternoon are a must!

As the guesthouse where I usually stay was full, I had to try Anchorage. ...as they say, a change is as good as a holiday Candice's inviting personality and accommodating way of doing things for you is definitely an advantage and reason to stay at this well appointed, clean and comfortable guesthouse . I will be back

Walking distance from the beach and some of the finest restaurants in Port Elizabeth is this wonderful guests house. The rooms are large, comfortable and very clean - from the crispy white linen to the equally white towels. Breakfast is served to your liking. Candice aims to please. I only drink decaf coffee and after she realised this, I found... More

Kim McLean, the owner, made us feel right at home. Right away, you felt totally comfortable in her gorgeous surroundings. It was super clean, had everything you would need, and was well appointed. It was an excellent "home-base" for seeing the area, and was within walking distance of the ocean, restaurants, etc. The breakfasts were terrific and plentiful. Parking was... More
