Stayed on the barge for 3 nights and have to say, it's the most fun I've had at a hotel for ages. Definitely be back. Took deck chairs and sat on the deck in the sunshine. Hotel food is great and rooms very comfortable.

We stopped one night on a tour up the west coast. There was a motorbike parking bay directly opposite the hotel, which was ideal. Staff and management were very friendly and helpful. We ate in the hotel restaurant, the food was excellent. Walking around town the next day we decided it was probably the best restaurant in town. We had... More

We have just returned from a windfall lunch at The Sea Bed restaurant in The Anchor Hotel. We chose the restaurant by chance as it had started to rain and the restaurant we had decided to go to wasn't open yet. What a lucky chance! The decor is very pleasant and the staff very friendly and helpful. The food was... More
