What is on offer

"“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.

"“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.

"Lovely View"

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.
