I was immediately taken by Anchors Rest from the moment I arrived, it is a beautiful building in every aspect. The outside is stunning as are the communal areas, pool and rooms. More important even than that was the warm welcome I received from Cilla and Peter, they really do give you a warm feeling as if they are old friends that you have come to visit. The location is also great as it is short walk to the local bars restaurants and beach.
I was there on a business trip and it was a great place to relax and reflect on the day but I would also recommend Anchors Rest for family holidays. I am also told by my wife that I have to stop talking about this place and take her with me next time
Looking forward to going back there soon
