“One question. When can I move in?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

Hubs and I stayed one night. It was the best night of our 8 night GOR trip. Cannot pin down just one thing that was my favorite about this place, so here are a few of them, in no particular order...the comfy king bed, the AMAZING views, the TUB (with an amazing view, natch), the lovely provided coffee in the top notch coffee-maker, the quiet, clean air and relaxation that is impossible not to feel while you're here, and lastly the excellent Chinese massage. In fact, I liked it so much, that I would plan my next GOR road trip around the availability of this accomodation- and you should too. Here's a tip: Head to town and grab your meal in a take away container. Bring it back, sit on the porch and enjoy dinner with the gorgeousness of nature all around you, so much better than sitting in a restaurant. Also, hit the grocery and pick up some wine and snacks to munch on while you watch a movie before bed. (There is even a selection of DVD's in the room!)

Room Tip: All three cottages offer privacy and views. Any of the three are superb.

This is such a beautiful spot to visit Port Campbell and the surrounding areas from.

The owners are friendly and attentive to all needs without being overbearing. Tanya remained in touch via mobile when we needed her to answer our trivial and mundane questions (like how to use the wine cooler!) and she gave us some good advice about the local area and where to stock up on supplies, but otherwise we were left alone to enjoy a romantic getaway.

Anchors is in a beautiful spot, overlooking scenic countryside. The rooms are stylish and very comfortable, with TV and DVDs and a kitchen well stocked with utensils. They also provide a BBQ, which would have been wonderful to use out in the garden if it had not been so windy when we visited...we'll use it next time, for sure!

It's a short drive into Port Cambell and to other local attractions, such as the Twelve Apostles and Loch Ard Gorge (a beautiful place to watch the sunset, btw!), and it's also worth visiting Timboon for the ice cream, cheese and whiskey. Anchors is a great place to return to at the end of the day to relax.

The next time I'm on that part of the Great Ocean Rd, I'll definitely go back to Anchors!

We only got to stay here for one night on our trip up the Ocean Road, but I could have easily stayed here for a week or longer - I was very sad to leave so soon.
We found Anchors through trip advisor and can only support the glowing reviews on here so far. We were met with a very warm welcome from Ian, who owns the farm, and then Tanya his daughter in law who runs Anchors. She is lovely and helpful without being the least overbearing and her attention to detail is second to none. The cottages are spotlessly clean and well tended, with beautiful views across the countryside and down to the sea which you can enjoy from the huge floor to ceiling windows or take a glass of wine outside on the table and chairs in the little garden area. The jacuzzi baths are fabulous (there are even tea light and matches to hand) and lots of lovely touches like the dvd selection, ipod doc, welcome chocs in the fridge, interesting magazines, etc. It's minutes from the stunning coastline, so a great spot to explore the area, and yet you feel very peaceful and isolated and we had a fantastic night's sleep.
It's a lovely romantic location, and we'd recommend it highly and hope to one day get back there for a longer stay.

Everything in the cottage is done so well, from the linnen to the bathroom ammenities and even a coffee machine in the kitchen there have been no corners cut in making sure this is a first class stay.
Tanya the manager sent me a text the day before our arrival and then again on the day to let me know the cottage was ready. After we arrived she stopped in to make sure every thing was perfect (which it was) then gave us soem sight seeing tips for the next day.
If I had one complaint, it is that I was not there long enoungh!

We stayed here only one night and that was our only regret, that we should have stayed longer. The quality of the rooms, the service and all the lovely touches make this place a must as a base for those exploring the Great Ocean Road. The rooms are large, with great modern furnishings. The view from the spa bath was amazing. We used the free laundry to wash our smalls and really enjoyed the complimentary chocolate frog in front of the telly with a free DVD. Really perfect, especially with the free WiFi. Make sure you have Fish and Chips from the chip shop at the garage/gas station in Port Campbell, FAB too. This was a memorable location on our Oz tour.

Room Tip: They are all good.

After 2 days in a beachside apartment in Lorne we decided to book Anchor's for our final 2 days on the Great Ocean Road. We had Villa 1 which was exactly as portrayed on the website and we were delighted with our choice. Tanya was very welcoming and obviously takes a great pride in her Villa's and ensuring that her guests needs are met. The extra provisions in the kitchen were great, I was especially happy to see a pepper grinder! How lovely that Tanya is able to leave Glad Wrap etc and that it stays for the next guests! Everything was immaculately clean and in tip top condition. The weather was not kind to us so we spent more time indoors than we had planned so we were especially thankful we had booked somewhere so comfortable and cozy!
