“Amazing! ”
Reviewed 29 July 2014 via mobile

This was our first time staying at anchors and we would definitely go again! The villa was just perfect with everything we needed including dvds! It was extremely clean, quiet and comfortable. The manager was very helpful and spent time showing us around! Definitely worth staying there.

This was our second stay at Anchors and it's was just as good if not better than the first time. Right from the start Tanya makes you feel incredibly welcome at right at home. The room is lovely and the views are fantastic! The gas log fire really sets the room off especially at night. This was a great place to base ourselves whilst we travelled around the region. Could not recommend anchors more highly and will def be back for a third visit!!

Room Tip: Ask for cabin 1. It is at the top and has the best view

Set just a couple of minutes up the hill outside Port Campbell, with a view of the ocean over the top of the village, surrounded by the rolling hills of the hinterland, this is great location. The building itself is a bed-sit style, with a clever design that is large and comfortable, making the most of the views. The complex has three apartments, each set apart from the other and providing great privacy. It is a delight to be standing in the shower or in the bath looking out over the ocean (especially when the cold rain is thundering past). The apartment is also very quiet, not only from its location, but also the building itself is very quiet. I particularly liked the way the apartment is designed and cleaned to achieve a "Healthy Hotels" certification. Being very allergic to dust mites, this was a great bonus. Tanya met us on arrival and was very welcoming. This is a great place to stay and I highly recommend it.

Room Tip: All three are essentially the same.

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.

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.
