We stayed at the anchor for bank holiday weekend, booking three rooms for our party of 6. This was our 3rd time stopping at the anchor. Previous experiences were fine, this one was a farce from start to finish, a room the cleaners had 'forgot' to clean, flooding, toilets with plumbing faults, no heating and to top it all the...

My husband and I stayed a couple of nights. Ladies on reception very helpful. Room also very clean but basic. No drawers and a very small space to hang clothes. Ok for 2 nights but that's about it. Another drawback was children running up and down the corridor.

2nd time I've stayed here, I came back because it suits a quick visit perfectly. It's cheap, clean and serves its purpose as a place to lay my head! It's basic accommodation so don't expect a luxurious, state of the art room but as far as my needs were concerned, nice staff, clean bed, shower and hairdryer! Perfect if you...
