Great hospitality. Very friendly staff. Very chilled out place to be, either winter or summer. Cosy fire in winter. Lovely place to sit outside in summer. Magnificent views, good food. Rooms very clean.

What a little gem, we stayed for 3 nights and have nothing bad to say about this hotel at all, we went with our Grandson and our little dog. Nothing is too much trouble and we had very spacious accommodation but i have to say that the staff and owners make this hotel. They cannot do enough for you, its... More

This hotel is in a lovely location which great views over the Solway but once inside needs a bit of TLC. We stopped here for lunch and as it was a bit chilly went into the bar. Hopefully there may be another bar less drab than this one!

I chose this hotel as an overnight stop off the Larne ferry. Just the right distance from the ferry and a lovely place to enjoy a beer looking out over the sealoch. I was met by a bright, friendly young lass and shown to my room at the front, looking out to the loch in no time at all. A... More

We decided on a "stick a pin in the map" spontaneous weekend, the only stipulation was that the place we stayed had to be dog friendly so we could take our lovely pooch Kilo.

We'd been to the Anchor Hotel before and had actually stayed there on two occasions but we hadn't been for some time when we called in the other day - but we were pleased to find that the same old cosy atmosphere, hearty no-nonsense cooking and pleasant service remained. It was early autumn but still warm enough to sit outside.... More

We stayed at the Anchor hotel as our usual guest house in the village was full. We were upgraded to the apartment room on the second floor. The bedroom was adequate although the extra single bed took up floor space. There was no wardrobe or drawer space just a rail. It appeared not to be finished. As well as this... More

Excellent food, particularly the seafood. Although the restaurant was busy, the service was prompt and the staff were efficient. We stay nearby in a caravan at Dalbeattie and will certainly eat here again.
