My wife & I stayed with Sandra & Ian on Friday night following a dinner event in town. With the sort of welcome we've come to expect from a stay at The Anchorage, we made our way to our room on the top floor up that incredible staircase that exudes elegance and history. A very comfortable & restive night was...

Second time we have stayed at The Anchorage and can't praise Ian & Sandra highly enough, they are always very friendly and welcoming. We stayed in double room which was very spacious and a very comfortable bed. They cannot do enough for you. The breakfast is delicious and hearty, especially the bacon rolls! We also got to meet their 4...

I stayed here for a weekend in October and it was perfect. The room was spacious, with a huge bathroom, fireplace and arm chair. There was free wi-fi and a fabulous breakfast included. It is just a few minutes' walk from the centre of Berwick, and a great base for reaching other nearby gems by car or train. Sandra and...

Like the other reviews we found The Anchorage to be a warm and friendly place to stay. A great choice of things for breakfast and if my scrambled egg and bacon is anything to go by the full works would be terrific. The house is a really interesting Georgian building and our room was warm and inviting. As others have...

I spent 10 days at the Anchorage while working at the Berwick upon Tweed film festival and so got to know the town rather well. I also went into a few other guest houses where my colleagues were staying and can confidently say that the Anchorage is hands down the best to be had here. Sandra and Ian were brilliant...

We were made very welcome at the Anchorage, where we stayed for three nights during August 2016. The room was a good size and spotlessly clean, and the bed most comfortable and it was very quiet. The building is most attractive and atmospheric. Breakfast was ample and delicious. We appreciated the complimentary water and biscuits and the tea tray in...

Based in Germany and obsessed with all things British, my husband and I have toured the North of England on various occasions before and can thus make an objective statement as to the quality of family-run B&Bs. The Anchorage Guest House and its endearing and most hospitable owners, Sandra and Ian are clearly on the top of the list of...

Bit of a belated review of my second visit to the Anchorage.Sandra and Ian as friendly as ever, and Ian's breakfast just as good as I remembered. Lovely room, and well placed for the town and the walls. Should be 1st choice for anyone's stay in Berwick-upon-Tweed!

The Building from the outside disguised the wonders you are treated with when you enter in. The spiral staircase and domed ceiling take your attention. Welcoming and informative, with a great breakfast. The room was spacious and spotless! Can't fault it at all!
