Lovely room with access to balcony to ocean views. Big comfortable bed, decent bathroom with decent sized spa bath. Good for a weekend get away. When we stayed we got a winter deal for the spa room and included 2 free breakfasts at the restaurant down stairs.

What is the fixation for serving hot meals on wooden platters. Mine was warped in the middle with small splits where the laminate had parted. $17 for 10 pieces of calamari served on a stack of oversalted chips. No salad and a garlic aoli. Waitress said they stopped serving salad with the meal because customers wasted it. Odd reason. Better... More

Enjoyed our short stay at this lovely renovated hotel, across the road from the water. A lovely clean, room with en-suite, comfortable and quiet, close to supermarket and laundrette. We enjoyed our dinner in the restaurant, great friendly staff, good menu options, warmed by the toasty fireplace. Breakfast the following morning was ok, room for improvement there.

Average clean accommodation. Busy Bistro area, meals good, some staff need extra training. Long wait in the Bistro area. I think this hotel could be given a higher rating if those in charge trained staff to give guests, of both Hotel and Bistro, the feeling that they cared about them. Just back from the Reef Hotel on Hamilton Island... lots... More

We had one of the "budget" rooms (no ensuite, use of communal bathroom), however the room was lovely, clean and modern furnishings, and a door leading into the shared balcony, which had good views of the Harbor. The communal bathroom was not an issue as we stayed in winter & basically had it too ourselves, but with only one shower... More

Have stayed here now on a number of single nights and keep coming back because it is great value and has a great location. Easy walk to the main street and located across a park and road from the seafront

My wife and I stayed in an Ocean View Room at the handsome Anchorage Hotel for three nights. We were very pleased with some aspects of our stay and disappointed by others . The positives included a superb location in terms of the sea-view, easy walk to the historic Cockle Train and the Ocean Street Restaurants and the delightfully unchanged... More

Located on the waterfront, the Anchorage is a Victor Harbor institution. We stayed for one night on a work trip and enjoyed several meals there. The food and ambience of the dining area is very nice. The accommodation itself is older and quite basic, but it is clean and comfortable. My only criticism is that the heating in our room... More

This hotel has kept its charm while updating just enough to avoid being spartan. We spent a night here and ate lunch in the restaurant. At one time this building would have qualified as first class. That's no longer true, but it still takes you back to the elegance of a simpler time.
