“Value for money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2014

I recently stayed at this Hotel with a group of friends and found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. My room was bright , clean and comfortable and the food was reasonable and plentiful.
I do think something should be investigated regarding the horrible smell near to the lifts.

After a one day stay to look at the hotel we decided to invite our members. 68 members turned up and they expressed their opinions by booking again for next year. No complaints, Staff efficient and very pleasant. Some even said the best weekend they have had in years.

we had a nice break the hotel was very nice clean, the staff were very helpful and friendly food was good with more than two choices entertainment could of been better so we went out in the evening but it was early season, we could not fault anything the only negative comment i would make is about a waitress she may be getting on but a little smile on her face would not go a miss.

Room Tip: we had family room on first floor very quiet no complaints

Hotel very good, for a two star rating. We can't see any justification for the issues raised in some of the reviews. Everything was clean and warm. Beds comfortable. Food was fine, if a bit basic and "traditional". Free wi-fi worked without any issues. Car park is too small for all guests but there is plenty of free on-road parking.

Recently stayed at the Anchorage Hotel. Found the hotel to be positioned in a quiet location set back from the main road. The room was clean and comfortable and the staff and management where very pleasant and friendly. The food was very good with a varied choice and was always pipping hot. Would recommend this hotel and will certainly return. Well done all the staff at the Anchorage Hotel.

Have stayed at this hotel 3 times. It is conveniently located in Babbacombe, close to Torquay. This review relates to my stay in March 2014. We a room on the 3rd floor. The room was pleasant and airy and the bed comfortable although the duvet was a bit thin. Opening windows meant I could indulge my passion for sleeping with a window open. Wifi worked well and quick too. There was adequate hot water and the shower worked well. Parking is adequate and is free, a rarity for us city folk!
