Modern, clean and with the friendliest of hostesses.

Good strong coffee in the morning to set us up and an enormous plate of food. Four rashers of bacon, no less, on a huge Scottish breakfast. We were impressed - and full!

This little B&B offers exceptional value. Thank you Janice for making the first night of our honeymoon so lovely.

The Scottish Tourist Board only rates three stars, but in our opinion the very friendly and cheerful hostess deserves an extra star. We felt very comfortable and enjoyed the very good breakfast. Although we arrived near noon, we were welcomed and allowed to drop our luggage in the room. Some good advices where to walk or where to eat made it a wonderful day in Eyemouth.

This is a great Bed and Breakfast and is extremely good value. We stayed in the double ensuite room which was excellent. The room was very clean and well presented with a view over the harbour and to the golf course. The outstanding feature of the Bed and Breakfast is the hostess Janice who goes out of her way to make you feel welcome and cannot do enough for you. The breakfast provided is extremely good and Janice greatest fear is that you have not had enough to eat. Janice take great pride in her Bed and Breakfast. I would recommend to anyone staying in the area of Eyemouth that they could not go wrong by staying at the Anchorage. This is one of the best value Bed and Breakfasts in UK in our opinion having stayed in about 50 Bed and Breakfast in the Uk in the last 6 years..

Just had a fantastic weekend stay at The Anchorage. Janice is such a lovely person, nothing is too much trouble. The rooms are modern and clean and comfortable. Breakfast set us all up for the day and it was all cooked fresh and served up quickly. Felt like I was staying a friends house, not a B & B. Will definately be back.

I live in York but work in four towns on the English-Scottish border, including Eyemouth. I first visited The Anchorage in October 2008 and love to go back whenever I can (even for leisure) - I must have spent about 30 nights there in total by now. Janice and Vernon are lovely hosts, real friends, and I look forward to more trips to The Anchorage even though my work in Eyemouth is coming to an end!

I agree with everything Norge said about the Anchorage, what a great B&B. We only stayed the one night but would have liked to have stayed longer. From the wonderful welcome to the sad farewell it was a delight to stay here. All rooms are up a short flight of stairs but unless you are completely infirm they are manageable. Our double room was superb and the breakfast was of a very high standard with numerous choices.
Eyemouth itself has an interesting fishing harbour and the countryside around has much to offer.
We look forward to our next visit.
