We stayed here for 2 nights in October 2013. After a long drive from Sodwana Bay we were welcomed by the friendly staff at Anchor's Rest. We had the room which viewed the beautiful garden and we felt secluded from the rest of the house which was nice. The room was nice and cozy also very clean. Everything was included in the room and we were able to cook for ourselves.
The breakfast was good with a hot breakfast option and the owner made it seem like we could order anything we wanted.
The location is about 5 to 10 minute walk to the beach, due to rain we drove to the beach. Restaurants are also about a 3 to 5 minute walk away. I highly recommend the George! They gave us free tickets to the Shark rugby match which we really enjoyed.
In a nutshell, I highly recommend Anchor's Rest to anyone. If i'm ever back in the Durban area I will be staying there again most definitely.
