Well each of the three times I have stayed at this lovely little motel I have been asleep 3 hours before the smile has faded from my face. The beds are comfortable, air conditioning is perfect room is clean. Best of all the rates are very reasonable, thanks are to hosts Rob and Helen hope to see you guys again...5 / 5 stars
We were made extremely welcome by the Hosts. The accommodation is in a superb position with easy waterside walks. The nearby (a car is necessary) Greenwell Point Bowling and Sports Club caters for all tastes. It was a delight to have the Australian Flag flying at the Anchor Bay Motel. Will stay longer next time.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
Excellent service. Rob greeted us on arrival and provided a good overview of sights to see. Comfortable room. Great location opposite the water and boat launching. Cafe and pub nearby. A lot of interesting sights nearby.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
