"Always a pleasure staying here"

Third stay here and always a pleasure. It is by no means a Shangri-La but the motel is very clean, beds comfortable and a small kitchenette very useful. Rob was fantastic and helpful even upgrading my aged mother in laws room that was more user friendly for an older person. No hesitation recommending this motel in a this lovely peaceful...

"“Extremely Comfortable”"

We were extremely pleased with our accommodation. The room was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. It isn't luxury but it isn't a luxury price. The host could not have been more helpful or pleasant, even helping with our luggage. We stayed in the access room and found it very pleasant. The kitchen is small but functional and the beds were super comfortable. I would doubt you could better the cleanliness and comfort for the price. Highly recommended.

"“Short Stay at Greenwell Point”"

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.

"Good value, relaxing, friendly"

On a three week holiday through NSW, the Anchor Bay Motel was the best value accommodation encountered in this price range on the whole trip. I stayed 3 nights. The room was bright, clean, and fresh, with natural light from two directions, and had an inviting verandah to sit outside.

"“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.
