We stayed in Victor Harbour for a week... and this was the ONLY hotel close to the centre and across the road from the beach! We were pleased to hear we were given the room on top of the Anchorage Sign on the side... room 14 if I remember correctly...because it's the only one with a private balcony access! The...

Had a meal there with family. Had ploughman's meal. Served on a piece of wood. Food difficult to cut on it without it shooting off the board. Very disappointed as had been told it was the best food around. Would not go back again. Had to wait a while to be served and for food to arrive.

Nice clean facilities. Food on Saturday night was lovely. Alby's Dad was very obliging when we asked for some wine glasses and an ice bucket to take to our room. He provided excellent service at dinner as well. The only thing I was not impressed with was the cleaner rattling plastic bags and rubbish at 6.15 in the morning. Then...

When visiting the seaside sometimes Fish and Chips is just what you want to eat! The Anchorage Seafront Hotel ticked all the boxes ..... fish and chips served with salad.... seating outside so we could enjoy the sunshine. The food was amazing and the fish SO fresh. Service was prompt and efficient.... we will return one day :)

Great location and super friendly staff make this seafront older style hotel an interesting place to stay in Victor Harbour. Cool restaurant and bar downstairs serving up a wide range of food and booze. Our room (in the older wing of the hotel) had a balcony with a lovely sea view but was a little tired overall. Still had a...

The hotel is overly a century year old and we expected there would be wear and tear to the place and overall it has been maintained rather well, though there are creaky floorboards. We booked a shared bathroom accomodation and requested when we arrived for changing it to one with a bathroom. The receptionist was very helpful and offered the...

When we book accommodation, my wife and I usually pick something with history or charm – and so we were attracted to the Anchorage Hotel from the pictures on their website. We wanted a twin room and booked an ‘Upstairs Anchorage Seafront Apartment’, with two queen beds, through Agoda. We were excited with our booking and looked forward eagerly to...
