What people are saying about The Anchor Hotel


Memorable stay - Rating 5/5

My husband and I brought his mother to The Anchor as a pre-Christmas treat. We have stayed a number of times before and felt sure she would enjoy it as we do. We were right! She did. We had a lovely time. Comfy rooms with pretty soft furnishings. Varied menu and delicious food. The Anchor's prawn cocktail is the best ever! Breakfast didn't disappoint either. Owners and staff all welcoming and helpful. Thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and we'll definitely be back.


Thank you very much

Delicious food in picturesque harbour - Rating 5/5

We chanced upon the Anchor while exploring the area and decided to stay when the weather turned bad. It was easy to book and we were given a warm welcome. The staff were all personable and professional. We had dinner and breakfast and the food was superb. Great choice of fresh local produce. This really is a gem of a place to stay in a beautiful coastal setting.


Thank you very much

Lovely night away - Rating 5/5

The atmosphere is wonderful as soon as you walk in the door. The warm welcome from the lovely staff is second to none.Room on small side but clean and everything you need with comfortable bed and little noise. Food out of this world, specialising in freshly caught produce brought in to harbour. After a good nights sleep, a wonderful full Scottish breakfast served to your table by ever obliging staff. Loved it. Would highly recommend a visit.


Thank you Ronald

Amazing Food & Staff - Rating 5/5

We stayed here with my sister and noisy pup. Nothing was too much for the staff especially Magnus & Cath, food was amazing and not overpriced. Rooms were small but adequate could have dine with a longer hanging rail but it was fine we managed and had the noisy pup. We would definitely recommend this hotel in fact we will be back with the noisy pup. Lovely peaceful area too. Keep a table for us.


Betty, thank you, look forward to seeing you again.

Fab apartment opposite a fantastic pub, round the corner to a wonderful café and right next to the sea - Rating 5/5

A great little apartment which suited four friends really well. Nice lounge, good sized bathroom, great kitchen, double room and twin. One of the sofas in the lounge was a sofa bed which was handy as it meant we all had our own bed. The pub over the road is brilliant, great food, good drinks, fab service. It is very busy so make sure you book. The cafe is also great, good breakfast rolls and lovely cake. The sea front is also very picturesque. We would recommend.


Thank you, Jennie
