Loved the time there. Experienced nature from a very pleasant room and could go out for walks and long jogs in the brisk of the morning. Wee behaved dogs came to greet but never intruded in our private space. A must go and experience for anyone who needs time-out and needs to relax and forget about daily stresses. Hosts are pleasant people who show much care for their guests.

Really an excellent setting in Stillbay, directly at the river, Annette and Graig are very good hosts and gave us a lot of good tips to do arround Stillbay. Stillbay ist jutst a insider tip at the Garden Route, not so busy like Knysna, Plettenberg or Jeffreys Bay.

Very nice guesthouse with lovely rooms and charming owners. The house was very clean and well maintained. We had a beautiful time and we enjoyed the amazing view across the river. We will definitely stay there again one time in future and also recommend it to our friends.

Second year we have stayed at the Anchorage, 3 nights this time, great room set in a lovely location on the river. Huge sandy beach just around the estuary entrance.
Best pool we went in all holiday. Lovely, friendly owners and staff.
The little Bistro restaurant across the bridge served a really good lamb pie.
Hope we will be back next year. Derek

We had our first visit to Stilbaai and chose The Anchorage. What a lovely choice we made! Craig and Annette are wonderful hosts and looked after all our needs.The Anchorage has a great situation on the river and just on the edge of town. Our room was very comfortable and had lovely views across the river. The garden and pool area have been well thought out for the comfort of guests and the pool is heated. A great area to relax in.

Stayed: January 2016
