“Top Notch Specialty Accommodation for Great Ocean Road”
Reviewed 2 July 2014

I had high expectations booking Anchors after reading the reviews and we weren't disappointed. Had an extremely long drive from Philipp Island and onto the GOR and we couldn't have picked a better place for to stop / stay.

Fireplace - Check
Hospitality - Check
Comfort & Cleanliness - Check

TV Channel & Wifi - Check

The location is close to 12 Apostles (15 mins) & other look outs like The Arch etc and it was a shame we didn't stay longer at Anchors. There is even a lookout from Port Campbell.

Highly recommended! Thanks Tanya!

This is the 3rd time my partner and I have stayed at Anchors and we love it every time. It's very clean, modern and has stunning views. The owner Tanya is very warm and friendly but leaves you to your privacy if that's what you desire. It's a short 10 minute drive to the 12 Apostles and not far from the local cheese factory and chocolate shop. We will definitely be back again in the future. We always go in winter as we like how quiet the area is compared to summer.

Room Tip: All villas are lovely

My husband and I spent one night at Anchors this past May. We arrived late in the evening and left before dusk so I cannot comment on the view from our room. However, our room was utterly immaculate and Tanya’s hospitality was awesome. Our room included a bed on a raised platform, a sitting area with TV, gas fireplace (which Tanya turned on for us in anticipation of our arrival), kitchen and a bath which included a Jacuzzi tub as well as a shower. The kitchen was fully appointed including an espresso machine, utensils, pots, full sized refrigerator and dishwasher. There was also a bar-b-que grill outside.

We needed help on our return drive to Melbourne and Tanya was most helpful, even texting us the next day while we were on the road with additional tips. The hotel is conveniently located about 2 km. from Port Campbell and the Great Ocean Road.

I would definitely recommend Anchors.

Room Tip: We had villa 2.

Fantastic location with brilliant views. We have never stayed in accommodation so clean or well kept. Host was a wealth of knowledge. Would definitely stay here again and would recommend to all our friends. Close (by car) to great eating places

Stayed one night at Anchors which was an easy drive from Melbourne. Firstly the views of the sweeping hills to the ocean were amazing, perfectly viewed through the big glass windows of the unit. Even the spa has a view! Tanya the owner who greeted us, was most welcoming and helpful in sharing ideas of things to do (and eat!) locally. The unit was lovely, clean, modern, huge comfy bed as well as cosy lounge area with gas fire which we thoroughly enjoyed relaxing in looking out at that view!

We spent 2 nights here after a long trip through the great ocean road.
While the owner was unfortunately away, she texted us to keep us up to date with where to get our keys, what we can expect in the room ,etc.
morning views are perfect. I recommend this place to anyone who is travelling to port Campbell.

Stayed one night in Anchors. Very beautiful interior design with all the facilities you need for a getaway. Full service kitchen with all the accessories. Perfect for a nice romantic home cook dinner. Our host Tanya was very welcoming and stayed late to wait for our late arrival in the evening. Waking up with views of the green valley and farm were very satisfying. Will definitely stay here again.
