Rob, Helen, and the family took a sea change in 2014, and what a great change it has been. It’s a warm, friendly, hospitable motel and Rob and Helen will go out of their way to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable.
We had a quick overnight stay here while attending a wedding. The hosts are very welcoming and happy to recommend places to eat etc. the room was very clean and had a lively view of the wharf where the fishing boats come in. It was also very quiet. Be aware that some of the rooms are only accessed via stairs so if this is a problem for you make sure to ask for a downstairs room. All in all a lovely stay and I would definitely return.5 / 5 stars
This is a very quiet and friendly village, and Anchor Bay Motel is comfortable and welcoming. The views across the water are wonderful, with pelicans galore on the jetty across the road. It's about 10 mins to Nowra, and 30 mins to Huskisson where most of the tourist action is centred.5 / 5 stars
I have stayed at the Anchor Bay twice now, it is convenient and away from suburbia of Nowra and is right on the water at Greenwell Point. The rooms are always tidy, smelling fresh with very clean linen and blankets (I liked the low setting on the electric blanket - just enough for my aching back) and the coffee tea facilities well appointed. It is a must to walk along the walkway from the jetty to the end and back before breakfast. The fresh sea breeze and brisk walk does you the world of good. The manager is always polite, courteous and ever helpful with our needs. The jetty and boat ramp are great for pictures and looking back on Coolongata Mountain at Shoalhaven. The free picnic BBQ and tables are an added bonus across the road with a great Fish & Chip shop on the corner. We will be back again, for sure.5 / 5 stars
We booked for one night as part of a weekend away from Sydney. After a day on a motorbike, we were very tired and ready for a hot shower. Rob welcomed us with open arms, instantly making us feel at home. He helped us with dinner recommendations and local sites.5 / 5 stars
We found this motel to be quiet and peaceful within easy walking distance to the hotel, wharf and cafes. The room was very clean with plenty of space and a view to the water. The manager was friendly and helpful, suggesting things to see and do in the area and places to eat. We would throughly recommend this motel and will stay there next time we are in the Nowra area.5 / 5 stars
