I have been to this guest house numerous times in the last twenty years. It is great value. Most of the rooms are basic, but remember it is a guest house not a hotel. In fact it's the only guest house left of 65 that used to be there. Built in 1905. My room had a double bed, a sink, a fridge, tea-making facilities, a chair and table, a shower and toilet, with a window view overlooking the bay. For $70 it was good value.
The Achorage is right in the centre of Victor, overlooking Encounter Bay. A couple of minutes' walk to the Granite Island Causeway. Cross the road and you are on the beach.
The best thing about the Anchorage is the restaurant/cafe/bar. The bar is made from an old boat. Food is fantastic, whether it be breakfast, a main meal or bar food. The coffee is terrific! And the staff at the Achorage are friendly and helpful.
Not only would I go back: I will!
