We had a great time at this hotel, nice room, good shower and good view. We saw whales from the terrace of the hotel! Nice restaurant where you can have breakfast, lunch or dinner. We recommend to stay here. It's also close to the centre and the little island.

My partner and I are regular guests to the Anchorage at Victor Harbor. The accommodation is old fashioned, comfortable, warm in winter, onsite car parking and have great views from the balcony's off the upstairs rooms. You can sit there for hours and watch ocean, boats, Granite Island and the cliffs in the distance! A great way to spend a... More

Stayed upstairs with an ensuite. Room cold on arrival, but warmed up whilst we had dinner downstairs. Cracker view over the bay. Would be lovely out on the verandah for coffee on a mild weather day. Staff very friendly and helpful. Would stay again. Even though its a 'building with character' its kept very clean. Suggestion: put heaters on in... More

My wife and I stayed in the villa earlier this week as part of our honeymoon. Despite the promise of a warm villa, we arrived to a broken 'fireplace' which had been replaced by a small space heater (we weren't advised earlier of this) which was struggling to heat a 1m radius around it, let alone the villa. Then there... More

I stayed for one night and found the traditional style great fun. That said, the rooms get cold in the winter as the only form of heating is a freestanding electric heater. I had to have mine changed as it was faulty and the staff did this immediately. My room was not supposed to have a sea view, but it... More

We have just stayed here for 4 days, it's a heritage listed property on the sea front, a good old fashioned guest house. We had an ensuing room on the ground floor and I suggest these are perfect for older couples, there are also upstairs rooms. Our room was well furnished with a very comfortable bed and tea and coffee... More

We rocked up to the Anchorage late in the afternoon. The manager on duty showed us a nice room (separate bedroom and ensuite). I had read some reviews that weren't so favourable so wasn't expecting too much. Perhaps these were from cheaper rooms. It was all quite lovely and very clean. There was some peeling paint but I thought it... More

Just do it. This is an old guest house facing Encounter bay. You risk (?) the noises from next door but the rooms are attractively presented, the bed comfortable, spa suite and the outlook unbeatable. The kitchen is first class and at breakfast (8a.m) you'll find the local ambos in for coffee while you have breakfast ...so the locals recognise... More

The hotel is cute. Old building, classic decoration. Room has good size. We stayed at the Queen Room with Shared Bathroom. You might think that isnt good since you dont have your own bath. However, when we stayed the hotel seemed empty so use the shared bath was not a big deal. The varanda has a beautiful view. Totally worth... More
