I was doing a course for a week on the Isle of Wight and I was fortunate to be accommodated by such lovely people at Anchorage Guesthouse. The room was everything I could've asked for - kettle, tea & biscuits, hot shower, soft mattress, and a lovely view of the sunrise every morning. It was the kind of place I... More

Thank you Peters and Linda for your kind hospitality. I stayed here 3 nights for the music festival in June 2015 in the Garden Room. Very handy location 5 minutes or so from the fast (red jet) ferry jetty in Cowes and 5 minutes or so to the chain Bridge (free for foot passengers and cyclists). Very nice hot breakfast... More

Booked as a part of a package by Wight Wanders we were delighted by this cosy BnB and its friendly and welcoming hosts. Breakfast lovely and the accommodation spotless and comfortable. We hope to return. This accommodation is LGBT friendly.

We stayed at various places on the Isle of Wight while we were walking the Coastal Path. The Anchorage in Cowes was probably one of our favourites. The very helpful and friendly owners were very personable. Our bedroom and also the public rooms were modern and spotlessly clean and tidy. I was puzzled by a couple of poor reviews elsewhere...

Five out of five. Clean room, comfy bed, hot powerful shower and awesome porridge! Peter, the owner, made me feel welcome and was a laugh to chat with when I was in the guesthouse. Would definitely recommend this place.

Loved every minute of our summer bank holiday getaway abode!! A mere 5 min walk away from the very quirky and lovely Cowes High Street and yet quiet and peaceful. We were greeted very warmly by Peter's wife (I think her name is Linda although a bit foggy - really sorry!) who showed us to our room which was bright... More

We stayed at the Anchorage Guest House on the Friday and Sunday nights and were given a double room at no extra cost until we asked to pay when the owner wanted another £10 which we refused to pay. The cost was £90 for a twin room which was basic to say the least. It seems that this is par... More

Cant rate this little guest house highly enough. Spotesly clean, modern and friendly establishment. Just a short walk into Cowes main town, it is extremely well placed. Breakfast was plentiful and nothing was too much trouble. Would highly recommend.

We recently spent two comfortable nights at the Anchorage Guest House and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Upon arrival we were warmly greeted by Peter, the owner who showed us around. My husband is quite tall, and Peter kindly offered him a choice of two available rooms, so that he could find which bed best suited him! A stone's throw from... More

Six of us stayed one night recently. We all commented on the high quality of the accommodation. The rooms were clean and well appointed with comfortable beds. The toilet / shower facilities were up to date and efficient. Our hosts were wonderfully charming, courteous and hospitable. The breakfast, which was pre-ordered the night before, certainly wasn't the worst we had... More
