"Very good Value, exceptional Scenery, wonderful Owner"

We have spent my partner and me a night at Anchor Bay Motel. We were on a kind of short road trip around. And I found it on TripAdvisor just close by we have stopped. I was so amazed with comments about the service and value that we both were excited to try it. And we have not been disappointed....

"“Relaxing and ideal for the weekend getaway”"

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.

"Will be back"

A lovely location and friendly welcome, rooms are nice and clean, very comfortable with thoughtful touches. Stayed twice and enjoyed both visits. I was travelling without my husband and this place was perfect.

"“Great Place To Stay”"

We were on the road and just looking for a place to hang our hats for the night. We found Anchor Bay Motel via the internet and gave them a call. Rob made our after-hours check-in so easy that I felt compelled to visit reception in the morning to thank him personally. After a wonderful night's sleep in a comfortable bed, it was great to put a face to the name. The motel is located right on the point so, being an early riser, I managed to get an enjoyable walk and take a few photos of the picturesque sunrise before hitting the road again. I'd gladly stay here again!!

Nice people & clean rooms in a good spot. The upstairs rooms have a view so we paid the extra & it was worth it. There was a balcony to sit out on & we were given lots of helpful info on great beaches to visit. Would stay there again. Rod D
