1845 coaching inn run as a b&b by Lynne and Lyndsay. Beautiful location looking over Twofold Bay. Original building with 5 rooms all different styles. Very good breakfast. Hosts were helpful with bushwalking and other local suggestions. We walked in the Ben Boyd national park. All in all a good stopover for a couple of days. Stayed for 2 nights... More

The Crown & Anchor B&B is an interesting place literally and figuratively. Much has been written about it in terms of its quirkiness and magnificent views (overlooking the Bay) including its history. It's also a B&B of two halves with a modern and large extension at the rear with great views built on the front of the old coaching house.... More

If you are one who likes to be immersed in history while enjoying a level of luxury, the Crown and Anchor won't disappoint. A genuinely historic place with a modern extension, giving the best of both worlds. Eden is a gorgeous town and the Crown and Anchor is perfectly positioned at the end of the main street and with fantastic... More

The arrival at the Crown and Anchor Inn doesn't quite prepare you for what lies behind the old facade and entrance. After a warm welcome from the owners one is taken inside the older part of the property to one's room - or should that be taken back in time? The inside is full of period furniture and fittings and... More

When we stayed here it felt more like we were staying overnight with some old friends. Our hosts were most accommodating and full of information on what to see and do in Eden. As we were the last to check-in, there was only one small bedroom left. But that didnt matter as we had access to the large common room.... More

Excellent Bed and Breakfast situated perfectly if you're driving between Melbourne and Sydney (or vice versa). The breakfast room has stunning views over the bay. The hosts, Lyndsay and Lynne, are tremendously helpful and have great knowledge of the local area. We highly recommend this as a place to stay.

What a beautiful place, lots of character and magnificent views. The owners only use 3 of the 5 rooms, this allows them to give the traveller the personal touch. The room were all different with furnishings to match the period of this 19th century former coaching inn. Tea and coffee available for guests when desired. Bed [4poster] very comfortable and...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Crown & Anchor Inn is the oldest building in Eden, first licensed as a coaching inn in 1845. The inn still offers accommodation to travellers who have access to the entire historic building including the lounge and dining rooms with open log fires and antiques. Each bedroom has its own en-suite, wonderful period furnishings and most with water views. The Crown & Anchor Inn is a special place loved by many who return to enjoy our hospitality, old world charm and seafaring history. The inn commands views of the Pacific Ocean and Twofold Bay allowing visitors to watch both sunrise and sunset. The Crown & Anchor Inn is close to town, shops, restaurants, cafes, Eden wharf area, the Killer Whale Museum, unspoilt beaches and pristine national parks. It is time you came to see for yourself. ... more   less
