Take a stroll around town and try to imagine Greenwell Point as the 2nd busiest port in NSW! Take in some of the historic buildings such as the school (1883), church (1890), or some of the original houses. The motel is situated where Greenwell Point House once sat.
If you need to cool off, there are a couple of places over the road in the River. Alternatively, there are surf beaches at Culburra and Callala (both about 10 minutes drive).

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.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
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.5 / 5 stars
Highly recommended. The rooms are spotless, the service friendly. I can't fault it. Highly recommended! My family and I will be visiting g again! Clean rooms, lots of nice added touched in the bathroom.. The owner even booked a restaurant for us for dinner.5 / 5 stars
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...5 / 5 stars
