About Anchorage Hotel

Guests can spend time out in the garden and enjoy a massage or treatment in the beauty room. Other facilities include a 24-hour reception and two guest lounges. Free Wi-Fi is accessible throughout. Complimentary breakfast is served in a casual restaurant, which also offers a selection of lunch and dinner options.

Positive Reviews


A wonderful location

Anchorage Hotel is ideally located for those who love the beach. Within walking distance of two local beaches, you are also within walking distance of several eating establishments like Hanbury's Famous Fish and Chips, as well as lots of eclectic shops and parks.


The staff exceeds expectations

A warm, friendly and professional staff greets you at check in and is eager to please you for the duration of your stay. They are happy to accommodate most any request, large or small, and can easily point you in the direction of the local sights, shopping and dining establishments.


The food is delicious

The chef at the in-house restaurant is highly skilled and his talents shine when it comes to the food. Prepared from the finest locally-sourced produce and meats, everything is fresh and beautifully presented, making each meal a wonderful experience for both your eye and your palate.

Negative Reviews


Some rooms are smaller than others

Some of the guest rooms at Anchorage Hotel are smaller than others. If you need extra room to manoeuvre or are travelling with lots of luggage or more than one person, you may want to take the opportunity to upgrade to a larger room in order to be truly comfortable.


The Wi-Fi is spotty

Although the Wi-Fi in the guest rooms is complimentary, you may find that the speed and consistency of the Internet connection is often slow and spotty. This could be problermatic for those with multiple devices or if you want to get an email out in a hurry. Luckily, the Wi-Fi connection in the public spaces is spot on.


The hotel is mid-facelift

Although many of the guest rooms here have been recently updated, many have not and the facilities are looking a bit drab and old. If you find yourself in a room that has not yet been attended to, be sure to request a room that has been refurbished.
