Incredibly welcoming arrival. Room was very comfortable and well equipped with books, a mini fridge, tea and coffee and wine and was spotlessly clean. The shower was very luxurious and welcome after a very long set of flights from the UK! Very peaceful and in a very safe area. There is a communal lounge and balcony with sea views and...

Staff were very friendly, room was beautiful and clean. The bed was very comfortable, and we were made to feel very welcome. Felt like a home from home. Thank you very much. Great location and complimentary bottle of wine went down a treat. Would definitely stay again.

A clean, homely and pleasant guesthouse that served its purpose perfectly. There is no breakfast at Anchor Bay, but that's exactly what we were after - no pressure to get up at a certain time etc. The proprietor, Burt is warm and helpful and very passionate about his neighbourhood. The Nespresso machine in room was added bonus and the biscuits...

Just checked in to this lovely guest house. We have a back room on the first floor with a large balcony and a view of Robben Island. Very high standard room, beautifully furnished and decorated. A quick bus ride into town. Walking distance to restaurants. Very helpful owners.
