I stayed at the Anchorage for one night for a friends wedding in Oct 2013 and Peter (the owner and manager) was so helpful and friendly, over and above what would be expected. I would highly recommend staying there. The room was clean and very comfortable. He made sure he was in to welcome me (at both my original and... More

I came to Cowes to do my RYA Offshore Yacht Master text. I was supposed to meet the instructor and boat owner (This was just a primary indication of how not serious nor professional instructor he was and the whole amateur attitude) on my arrival but it was mission impossible to get in touch with him, so I was wondering...

When we arrived in Cowes we had hiked miles and miles through wind and rain from Ryde. Nothing ever looked so good as the clean, quite and well-appointed room at Anchorage Guest House when our bedraggled group climbed the last stair to our destination. The location is great--close enough to walk to everything but just far enough to be quiet... More

We loved it, as the only guests in a busy sailing season, but we were treated like royalty. Bags carried, advice given, laundry offered, but best of all, the greatest Full English Breakfast. We would gladly recommend to anyone. Reg and P

I stayed a night here out in the Garden Room (bungalow out back) and loved it immensely. Peter (the owner) couldn't have been more friendly and gave me an excellent dinner recommendation, gave brilliant advice and even got up early to offer me tea and toast before I caught an early ferry. (note: there is help yourself cereal etc and... More

Meant to write this a while back, only just getting round to it. But I wanted to leave a glowing review for this really lovely guesthouse. My partner & I went to the Isle of Wight with our 4 month old baby for a friends wedding, and stayed here for a few nights. The location is great, Peter who owns... More

Stay with here due to a work event and all in all it was a nice place. Chap who ran the place was out when we got there, left a note saying "back in 5 mins" and he was rather apologetic when he returned. I was staying the the twin bedroom on the ground floor which was perfectly adaquate. Single... More

A great family run B&B, rooms are nicely decorated and very clean with modern bathrooms, hosts were very helpful in answering our questions about how to get where we wanted to go and very accommodating to our requests. Breakfast was a particular treat as eggs benedict (royale/florentine) are the host's speciality!

Anchorage is a clean and tidy well presented B & B. It is well situated for the best access to what Cowes has to offer and just far enough away from the hustle and bustle. With a true seaside feel from the fresh decor and complimented by the host Peter who went out of his way to make my stay... More

Excellent stay, I loved the breakfast, their was a set menu, but the owner cooked any thing that I asked for, I was always greeted when I finished in the evening. Room was clean, and towels changed daily, and bin emptied daily. Free wifi, which was great. The owner guided me on where to go for food and things to... More
