“Friendly guest house but not quite 4 star”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 October 2011

Our recent stay here was pleasant enough. The room was clean and comfortable, though a bit cramped. The good thing about this place is the very convenient location, close to all the amenities of Port Erin and the transport system. There is plenty of parking, friendly hosts and a good, well cooked breakfast. However, some upgrading is needed in the house and our room, especially the bathroom. The towels were thin and small, I like a larger, fluffy towel and these were a meagre representation of a bath towel. There was no TV in the room, just an analogue radio, this was very disappointing for a 4 star house. There is a large TV in the guest lounge but to be honest we didn't like to sit in there for long if at all! We are not TV addicts by any means but sometimes after a busy day walking etc, its just nice to chill out in the room with a glass of wine whilst watching a bit of TV.

The Anchorage is well located near the train station and town centre, with the bus stops and sea front only a few minutes walk away.

We had a sea view room which was comfortable, clean, and contained everything you would expect. Judith and Paul were extremely friendly and helpful, and the breakfast was plentiful and tasty.

Port Erin is on a frequent direct bus from the airport, and buses or the steam railway take you to Castletown, Rushen Abbey and Douglas. The coastal walks are dramatic, and the historic village at Cregneash is well worth a visit.

The Anchorage in Port Erin provided a perfect base from which to explore the island. Judith and Paul were very friendly hosts and were a mine of information about everything Manx. The breakfasts were superb and gave us pleny of fuel for our walks around the coastline!

This was the first time that we stayed at the Anchorage although have stayed elsewhere in Port Erin for many years.  We have often driven past the Anchorage and thought how nice it looked. We stayed there for six nights in September and certainly will be going back next year.    The whole place is very clean and well furnished.  The breakfast menu caters fully for everyone be they modest eaters or somebody who likes a full breakfast  which will last you until well after lunchtime.  Judith and Paul who run the place are very friendly and sociable people and made us and all the other guests very welcome.  The waitresses who helped Judith at breakfast time were also very nice. Breakfast time turned into a really nice friendly experience, did not take us long to get to know all the other guests.   Not one of those B & B 's where breakfast is quiet and nobody talks to each other..
