We spent a few days at the Royal Anchor in mid May. Our favourite things: the room was very clean and we had a great view of the ocean and pool-(probably true for every room). We also really liked the vast quantity of tables and chairs available around the pool area and in front of the ocean. Balconies are private and furnished with 2 comfortable lounge chairs and a table. The owner makes a point of updating and up keeping the establishment on a regular basis.
There was a full bath but it was on the very small side. The room décor was quaint and welcoming. Nice flat screen tv with more than enough channels. The Wi-Fi worked well. It was even better on our balcony. We had a mini fridge and a Keurigg Coffee Maker. There was no micro-wave or any other kitchen appliance-but we did not miss them. You have 1 reserved parking spot-convenient! They also have a nice, heated pool
Breakfast was basic but free; toast, bagels, one or two pastries to chose from, a couple of fruits to choose from as well. They also served diced cheese and one morning there were hard-boiled eggs. Breakfast was from 7:30-9:30 and you could take the food up to your room or to one of the many tables outdoors. It was more than fine.
The staff was friendly and welcoming. It is not walking distance to the pier unless you feel like going for a long walk but the beach area is very nice. It was peaceful and great for walking. They also rent loungers that you can take the beach for the day.
The room might be a bit tight for 4 people but the cleanliness and amenities will make up for it.
