This is a good spot to stay a night or two! The house is very special. Old part where the guest rooms are and a new part where breakfast is served. The view from the terrace is breath-taking. Keep in mind that everything in Eden closes at 20 PM.... So you can go to bed early and get up early...

1845 coaching inn run as a b&b by Lynne and Lyndsay. Beautiful location looking over Twofold Bay. Original building with 5 rooms all different styles. Very good breakfast. Hosts were helpful with bushwalking and other local suggestions. We walked in the Ben Boyd national park. All in all a good stopover for a couple of days. Stayed for 2 nights...

The Crown & Anchor B&B is an interesting place literally and figuratively. Much has been written about it in terms of its quirkiness and magnificent views (overlooking the Bay) including its history. It's also a B&B of two halves with a modern and large extension at the rear with great views built on the front of the old coaching house....

If you are one who likes to be immersed in history while enjoying a level of luxury, the Crown and Anchor won't disappoint. A genuinely historic place with a modern extension, giving the best of both worlds. Eden is a gorgeous town and the Crown and Anchor is perfectly positioned at the end of the main street and with fantastic...

The arrival at the Crown and Anchor Inn doesn't quite prepare you for what lies behind the old facade and entrance. After a warm welcome from the owners one is taken inside the older part of the property to one's room - or should that be taken back in time? The inside is full of period furniture and fittings and...

When we stayed here it felt more like we were staying overnight with some old friends. Our hosts were most accommodating and full of information on what to see and do in Eden. As we were the last to check-in, there was only one small bedroom left. But that didnt matter as we had access to the large common room....

Crown & Anchor Inn B & B is one of the oldest houses in this parts of Australia located on the outskirts of the small town EDEN, facing an interesting whaling museum. Must see! Small good beach 5 minutes away. There are 4-5 bedrooms with shared living room decorated in very old fashion style. Small very old-fashioned rooms, clean and...

Excellent Bed and Breakfast situated perfectly if you're driving between Melbourne and Sydney (or vice versa). The breakfast room has stunning views over the bay. The hosts, Lyndsay and Lynne, are tremendously helpful and have great knowledge of the local area. We highly recommend this as a place to stay.

Stayed 1 night at this B&B, was the best night. Lindsay and Lynn Evans are the best hosts, make you feel really at home and will give you all the information on this historic Inn built around 1843 and the area of Eden. It has great views from both the front and back and is within walking distance to the...

The inn still offers accommodation to travellers who have access to the entire historic building including the lounge and dining rooms with open log fires and antiques. Each bedroom has its own en-suite, wonderful period furnishings and most with water views. The Crown & Anchor Inn is a special place loved by many who return to enjoy our hospitality, old world charm and seafaring history. The inn commands views of the Pacific Ocean and Twofold Bay allowing visitors to watch both sunrise and sunset.
