Stayed 2 nights in duplex room, ate in Merretts both nights. The positives: great room, loads of space, fantastic views of harbour, Merretts food was excellent both nights, breakfast choice really good, lots of public spaces, just to sit and chill.The not so good stuff: check in involved being told what wasn't included; on both nights, the restaurant staff seemed determined to make us book our reservation as early as possible, with dire warnings of "big parties" coming in later, which didn't materialise on 1st night, and something similar on 2 nd night. Might be paranoid, but felt that restaurant staff regarded customers as something getting in the way of an early finish! The entire place could do with a deep clean, fresh paint and general makeover. Impression of the room complexes was similar to an up market retirement home! Overall, location, view and restaurant make this a great place in beautiful place, but don't expect to feel entirely welcome.

We stayed here 4 nights on our honeymoon. It was a very nice place to stay. It needs to be mentioned it is no longer a Peppers Hotel.
The pool was nice with shady chairs and the spa was indoors. The grounds and the gardens are well maintained. There is also plenty of parking.
We had an upstairs room and we had a great view of the marina. The rooms were a good size with a decent size TV.
There was an alarm which kept going off which drove us a bit mental one night. On our last night we were told the air conditioning was not working in our part of the hotel, we had the option of changing rooms or getting a fan. We chose the fan and the staff apologised and gave us a complimentary bottle of champagne.

Room Tip: The 1st floor rooms have a better view

Our stay at The Anchorage was a very enjoyable couple of days. Our loft suite was nice and roomy and the resort has a lovely position next to the marina with views over the water. breakfast was very good with a huge range of choices. We dined one night at Merretts Restaurant and the food was excellent. All the staff were friendly and efficient which added to our stay. The only demerit for the resort is that it is looking a little"tired" and in need of a bit more maintenance - hopefully that will happen with the new owners.
