We got a great mid-week deal from this motel's website and we stayed for 4 nights. Upon arrival the friendly owner went through the local map with us and gave us some advice about the best places to eat and visit during our stay - great personal touch! The room was spotless and very comfortable. Motel is in a perfect spot on the water, and was very peaceful. We were thrilled with this place and were very sad to leave. We'd come back to the Anchor Bay Motel again in a heartbeat.

Dear LittleRed_13,
What a marvellous review. Thank you very, very much. You mentioned our mid-week deals. These are indeed great value for money and are available through our website (anchorbaymotel.com.au) for multiple night stays. They include a Breakaway Special from $75 a night, a Super Deluxe Special from $95 a night and a Waterfront Escape (which includes a daily continental breakfast!) from $110 a night. Our prices will go up a bit in Spring so cash in now for a great deal. We loved your comment at the end: "We'd come back to the Anchor Bay Motel again in a heartbeat." That is such a lovely turn of phrase, and we hope you will visit us again some time in the near future.
Kind regards,
Garry and Jeni

Just wanted to say what a great few days we had at Greenwell Point and The Anchor Bay Hotel. Great location, nothing too much trouble for the owners who also knew the area very well and could help you with interesting places to visit.
Good beaches nearby, You can hire a 'tinnie' and get out on the water and get closer to the fantastic bird life....go inland and see some fantastic views....and then come back in the evening and enjoy a few beers or a bottle of wine on your verandah outside your room.
Only wish we could have stayed longer.

Dear Dragonsfan,
Thank you for your marvellous review. You summed up the Anchor Bay Motel, Greenwell Point and the Shoalhaven perfectly. It is the sort of place where you can easily get up close and personal with nature and the wildlife. It is all at our doorstep, sometimes literally. Last week we had a kookaburra who visited the motel every day (encouraged by little morsels of mince!) and after a while we were actually able to touch him. Amazing. We loved your photos. You must have been up early to catch the sunrise across the water. If there is a next time, we do hope you will be able to stay with us longer.
Kind regards,
Garry and Jeni

Nicely tucked away from the rat-race in town. Location was great. I stayed in a room on the first-floor and had a nice view of the water. Stayed here for a week when I was working in Shoalhaven Hospital. There was free wifi but they were having some technical difficulties at that time so it wasn't working properly as the connection kept dropping out.

As a coffee fanatic I loved the plunger coffee they provided.

A great place to kick back and relax for holiday-goers. For me, it was nice to wind-down after a hard slog at work. You can go for a quick run along the bay too or take a dip in the pool. The fish-n-chip shop nearby did not disappoint.

Dear Jee_Yg,
Thank you for your kind words about our motel. You stayed with us in January, our peak season, and yet Greenwell Point was still quiet and tranquil. It is a wonderful place to "kick back and relax" as you say.
You mentioned the free wifi and difficulties in staying connected. The connection is perfect in the Standard and Deluxe rooms but has proved a challenge in the Waterfront rooms where you stayed. We have just installed new equipment (May 4, 2013) and are hoping this solves the problem.
We hope you will stay with us again next time you are working at the hospital.
Kind regards,
Garry and Jeni

We travelled the Pacific Highway from Sydney to Melbourne and onto the Great Ocean Road in Feb/Mar-13. Our first overnight was the Anchor Bay Motel and it turned out to be such a treat. Comfortable, clean, peaceful and a wonderful view.
Greenwell Point is a quiet picture book coastal village and a late afternoon walk around the bay with sea birds in abundance is sheer delight.
Now add to that the Pelican Rocks Seafood Restaurant next door and experience the best oysters we have ever tasted. Praise indeed!
Many a guide suggested we should stopover at Jervis Bay. Forget it; we visited next day. Greenwell Point is a delightful experience not to be missed.

Dear Nomadtravellers,
Thank you for your fabulous review. You sum up Greenwell Point very well - a picture book coastal village indeed. The walk along the foreshore is very special and the bird life amazing. Look across the bay and sometimes you see dolphins and seals; look into the waters and you will see masses of fish and stingrays. It is a delight. You enjoyed the meal at Pelican Rocks Restaurant next door. It is an excellent restaurant. Through summer it is generally open Wednesday to Saturday evenings, in winter it is usually open just Friday and Saturday evenings. It is good advice to check if the restaurant is open and we can do that for guests.
Thank you again for your lovely review. We trust you enjoyed the rest of your holiday in Australia.
Kind regards,
Garry and Jeni

Right from our arrival at the reception, we were given a warm welcome by the lady. She was really friendly and gave us several suggestions on the places to visit around the area. With the positive reviews on tripadvisor, our expectations were certainly high. And we were certainly not disappointed with the room.

The room was well-kept and clean. The beds were comfortable and had nice, homely looking sheets. It was well equipped with a microwave oven and toaster. More importantly, for the well-connected travellers, the room comes with free (and fast) wifi! Overall, the room was cosy and very comfortable. Anchor Bay motel is definitely of great value. If you’re around the area, you’ll not go wrong staying here for the night!

Dear Justin S,
Thank you for your "Grand" review. We are so happy we lived up to expectations and you enjoyed your stay with us. You mention the FREE wifi. We have invested considerable funds in the wifi system and believe we have finally got it right. And it is FREE to all our guests. We appreciate that our guests, particularly those from overseas, want to stay connected while they are travelling - talking on skype, checking emails and searching for that next lovely spot in which to stay. The wifi is generally very fast and effective and it is now working in all our rooms.
We hope you are enjoying the rest of your travels.
Kind regards,
Garry and Jeni

It was just what we expected from recommendation - owners are very friendly and helpful, rooms and terrace simple and nice, barbeque place just as perfect. Juts one important thing - people here go to slep really early, at 9 pm, so you have to keep quiet :)

Dear AmorFati,
Thank you for your very kind review. We are happy the motel lived up to expectations. You make an important point: The restaurants take last orders about 8pm and most are closed by 9pm. This is important for international travellers who are used to dining later in the evening. Our guests do tend to retire early as you remarked. You made excellent use of the barbecue area which is away from the motel rooms, so were able to party there for a while without disturbing anyone.
We hope you enjoyed the rest of your holiday in Australia.
Kind regards,
Garry and Jeni
