Earls Anchorage is beautiful. It's peaceful we'll equipped with all your needs. Spotless in all aspects. Lesley the housekeeper is always happy to help you with all your needs. Amazing women! John and Kathy the Owners are lovely and have lots of amazing stories to tell. The restaurant Humpty Micks is open all day with Ben the Manager making sure... More

We have just returned from a week on enchanting Lord Howe Island - a wonderful place to visit and get away from the 'madding crowd'. We stayed at Earls Anchorage which was a great option. Our bungalow, Kathleen, was spotlessly clean, spacious and tastefully furnished with everything to make us very comfortable. Being self catering, we took advantage of barbecue... More

Earls Anchorage is a great option for those wishing to self cater. Food is understandably very expensive on the island, but Earls does give you the option to cook a meal once or twice or how often as you like during your stay. We deliberately did not choose an accommodation/meal package as many other establishments offer as we like the... More

I generally agree with the positive reviews already posted. But there are a few items to be aware of: 1) When it says "Internet", it only means wired Ethernet access available. So your smartphone and tablets will not work as there is no wireless. They will provide ethernet cable, but if, like me, you have a MacAir then you need... More

Earls is a fantastic option for LHI. The standard is excellent and the facilities are great in each apartment. It's in a great location about 15 mins walk to town and also the closest beach. The apartments are spotlessly clean and all the staff are incredibly helpful. All rooms are very private You wont regret it

Without doubt, Earls Anchorage is the best self-catering accommodation on Lord Howe Island: Howeana is also high quality but being down the hill on the flat, is not as private or light and airy as EA. (Capella and Arajilla are excellent but they are not self-catering). Private, spacious, stand-alone vllia-apartments, light and airy (Maris and Tarpon), well-appointed. We stayed at... More

Great spot on the Island... couldn't find fault with anything can't wait to go back. Being yachties all the timber & joinery was appreciated. We had breakfast and dinner package which was great and staff were helpful putting together a breakfast pack when we couldn't make breakfast due to early morning starts.

We recently enjoyed our second stay at Earl's Anchorage, and enjoyed it even more (we loved it the first time)! All the apartments are terrific, no single one stands out: the two bedrooms are big and spacious with two big bathrooms, the one bedrooms very roomy, all the lounges and kitchens are big, bright and filled with everything you need....

Steve & I stayed at Earls Anchorage on Lord Howe Island in September last year. After reading these great reviews I can only say "ditto". It reminded me once again of a special place, an easy going, relaxing week with great food, friendly staff & excellent accommodation. Thankyou so much for living up to our high expectations. Love Alana

We loved the spaciousness, privacy of a stand alone unit (as are all the units), modernity and cleanliness. As other reviewers have stated: handy bits and pieces provided such as tea and plunger coffee and toiletries. Reverse cycle heating/air con welcome on the cooler evenings and no doubt would be invaluable for the summer months. Earls is located on the... More
