"“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!!

"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.

"“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.

"Repeat visits are essential"

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.
