“Fantastic Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2013

Just returned from a fantastic week at the Anchorage. It was the second time we have stayed there and it was lovely to be remembered as we checked in with a very polite and energetic gentleman on reception. The weather was kind to us and we were able to spend a lot of time just lounging by the pool. The food is good and the rooms are spotlessly clean. We have already booked to go back in the autumn.

just spent four nights here and yes I know it is only a 2 star hotel but even so the food for the evening meals was very poor indeed bar a couple of exceptions, the breakfast was ok, however most hotels do usually offer fruit juice or cereals to start with but no not here you could only have either one or the other, some tables did get both if they asked but on my last morning I asked if it was possible to have both and was told no we are not allowed. The room itself was very average which you don't mind but there was a couple of things that were totally unacceptable no matter what star the hotel is, when we arrived we went in the bathroom to check it out, we removed the toilet brush form its holder and the holder was in a disgusting state, it had brown filthy water in it and excrement up the inside of it and the top draw in the bedroom had got small finger nail clippings in it, both things of these things are bad by anyone`s standards. the place itself needs some TLC so all in all not very impressed.

I spent four nights here. The staff were very helpful. The food average but good breakfasts.
The room was clean on arrival but beds were never made, shower never cleaned and towel never replaced. The wash basin still had the quality control label stuck to it. Three night were fairly quiet but the last night rowdy, due to the smokers congregating outside to get their nicotine fixes. I was on the ground floor next to the office; someone was noisily rummaging around and early morning Hovering. It is very unlikely that I will stay there again.

As a Driver who has stopped at this hotel the look from outside is very impressive but once inside it changes the reception staff are not helpful and to be honest i don`t think they care if you have a problem. I was put out the back where staff smoked outside my bedroom filling it with their smoke,the tv would only work on one tv station,when i went to reception to see if they had a remote for it i was told no and the person i spoke to did`nt seem to care either.The Food was not the best and the service was very slow.Entertainment was only fair .To be honest i would not recommend this to anyone and hope i have`nt gotb to stop there again.

Five of us have just returned from a week-end break and really can`t understand some of the negative reviews.Our rooms, all on the ground floor were spacious and spotless. We found the staff to be extremely friendly and efficient across the board from reception to waiting staff. Nothing was too much trouble.

The Dining Room is well decorated with excellent lighting and the food is good. It`s not 5 star but then neither is the price and we all enjoyed the meals we chose. For us, the entertainment was just right, although few of the guests mentioned they would have liked to play Bingo. Good singers on both nights with songs to suit all age groups and not too loud so that it drowned out all conversation. Tea, coffee and alcoholic drink prices were most reasonable. We booked for lunch on the Sunday which is an extra but brilliant value for money and the quality was excellent. Sunday Lunch is open to non-residents and we were glad we booked in advanced . The locals obviously know a good thing when they see it! We all agreed we would love to go back again because it really is a lovely, relaxing place to stay.

We had a lovely long week-end at the Anchorage in June, staying 7th - 10th June. The hotel was really nice, the food was top class with a good choice. The service was a little slow on the first night due to our new waiter but after that the service was spot on. All the staff were friendly right down to the Manager's and nothing was too much trouble for them. They have also got a lovely outdoor heated pool with sun lounger's to use. There's is a park across the road from the hotel with outdoor bowling facilities. Would definately visit again, the prices are really good for what is on offer. Would definately recommend this hotel. Would like to say a big thank you to Robbie our waiter and Zack.
