“Winter warmer”
Reviewed 16 January 2014

Went on a coach trip and stayed in this hotel . I must say I was quietly surprised . Our room was lovely and clean so was the bathroom. The food was very tasty and plenty of it . The staff were very attentive and polite and to top it all a 99p bar every night from 7pm till 10 pm . All in all a very pleasant stay would definitely stay here again .

This is the second time we have stayed at this hotel in the past 9 months but our first away from home for New Year Celebrations. It was a four day package, three day accommodation with full board. The food was exceptional, the staff most helpful and as the hotel was well booked there was a great atmosphere. There was entertainment each evening and dancing. It was not to be surprised to hear that one couple had been coming for the past 19 years and another couple for 12 years. We shall definitely be going back during 2014. This is a superbly run family hotel where nothing is too much trouble and you are sure of a relaxing and enjoyable break. It has been noted that Majestic, with whom we travel several times a year, now have this hotel on their tours.

Got home after 3 nights on a Turkey & Tinsel stay. Bed, breakfast and evening meal plus etertainment. Superb value, rooms were basic but that is all you need. The weather was atrotious so would recommend that the maintenance team repair the guttering overflow at the back left hand of the building. Excellent service from the staff who were only too willing to help and we loved the bingo prize. Will remember this short break and possibly return next year.

Have just returned from spending 3 nights at this hotel with my father. It was clean and comfortable (if a bit basic). My father goes every Sunday for lunch and stayed for two weeks earlier this year when he came out of hospital, and he was looked after very well. So much so he now books a three night stay once a month. The food is plentiful and good at all meals. The staff, especially Barbara in the restaurant, were excellent.
The drinks prices were also fair, particularly the bottled beers.

Four of us have just returned from another super week-end at the Anchorage. This time is was a `Tinsel & Turkey` and it was great, one of the best . We have enjoyed many T&T weekends over the years at many different locations but this one was super. I cannot believe the negative reviews regarding food at the Anchorage. Breakfast was cooked beautifully, my poached eggs were just as I requested and the evening meal , with a choice of 4 options, was well cooked and delicious. We had rooms on the ground floor, 2 singles and a twin and although not large, were perfectly adequate and lovely and clean. Staff, as before were charming and helpful throughout the hotel.
Location of the hotel is ideal, just a gentle stroll to the gardens and cliff railway. We will definitely return again.

We were looking for somewhere to stay while visiting friends in Torbay. The Anchorage exceeded our expectations by far. The bedroom was spacious and the staff were all extremely helpful and friendly. We’ll be going again!

Room Tip: We upgraded to a deluxe room and thought it was fantastic value
