I have been to many places during my visits to South Africa, but I only stay at Anchorage when visiting Plettenberg. It was sad to hear that Willie and Rina are retiring, but they have been great hosts over the years to many people and deserve a break. If you can visit them before April, do it. You will be treated well.

The establishment was very understanding and acceptable of our change of plans when Level 4 hit and my husband needed to go for a big operation. They moved dates twice as no extra cost and with no complaints. We were greeted by a very friendly and professional owner. He politely showed us our room and showed us everything in our room for an amazing stay. We had called earlier in the day and said we would like to braai and they stated there will be a weber on our patio when we arrive. It was there, however we were only told on arrival that we could not use wood for the fire. I took my son for a swim in the heated swimming pool and then we took a shower, I sat on the bed in a towel that did not cover all my lady bits and tried to put my son to sleep. The female owner just walked into our room (did not knock) and after seeing my half naked and trying to put my son to sleep, she continued to come into the room and sit on the bed. She rubbed my leg and woke up up my son fully. This made me feel VERY uncomfortable. At breakfast this next morning, the same woman, after seeing our busy my son was proceeded to tell us that all my son needs is one hiding. Although the establishment was neat and accommodating, having no privacy and been seen naked and being told my son needs a hiding makes this place a no go for us. This woman destroyed our whole holiday!

Rena and Willie were accommodating hosts with a great sense of humor and made the stay relaxing and pleasant. If you are looking for a comfortable relaxing stay in Robberg, I would recommend Anchorage Guest House.

--At my arrival, I tested for hot water in my room’s bathroom. There was none. With some persuasion I was able to get hosts Willi(e) and Rina to turn on the hot water for my room --WiFi and TV channels: Not a guest friendly or easy to use delivery system of these two amenities --While facilities' list may mention a pool it is not for actual swimming but rather to accommodate a couple of people for cooling off. Expect no actual pool; just a small in-deck vessel that contains water --Other reviews have mentioned the ‘old fashioned’ aspect of the furnishings and the inadequate breakfast: Furnishings are a step back in time by perhaps more than 50 years in the common area / main floor and to some extent in the upstairs bedroom I occupied. I remember toast and yogurt and some fresh fruit at breakfast. I may also have been offered eggs or some cooked item. Good thing they didn’t try to charge extra for breakfast --The hosts favored guests from some countries and resented others. I heard more than one story about undesirable guests from other parts of the world and what a burden their stay involved for the proprietors --Primary view from my bedroom and balcony: An empty lot overgrown with grass and weeds and the Atlantic in the distance --Proprietor Willi(e) spoke, multiple times, of prowlers in his gated parking area looking into car windows to scout for valuables to steal. He said he can see the activity because of the property’s cameras, and guest belongings have been stolen. He emphasized windshield damage. Rental vehicle insurance covered me for zero excess payable so an incident would not cause me monetary loss --I arrived for my two night stay with one windshield glass chip. And the morning I got into the car to leave, there was a souvenir: Given the shape and nature of the window glass damage the perpetrator had taken the time to drill a circular hole in the window glass from which concentric circles radiated affecting a small area of the windshield. Thank goodness for expensive but useful ‘walk away’ insurance. --I was the beneficiary of Willi(e)’s intermittent monologues in support of Donald Trump. The timing of my stay was right around the 2021 presidential inauguration. I was the only guest. --I was a solo female traveller from North America. Many, but perhaps not all, travelling groups and husband/wife couples will experience a more satisfactory stay; particularly if they are not from U.K. or U.S. or Canada. --Why do I think the majority of reviews are so favorable? The rate is cheap. The neighborhood is quiet. You can see the Atlantic from the property. The proprietors value the patronage of guests from some European countries and from some segments of the South African culture

Lovely guesthouse in a safe residential area in Plettenberg Bay. Hosts are very friendly and welcoming. Home cooked breakfast, different options you can choose from. Safe parking. Great views. Very family friendly.

Friendly staff and the food was good... The failure of the wifi and cleaning of the room was an issue. The room was not cleaned at all. We booked all weekend and whenever we leave the room it should be clean and linen, towels were not changed.

Thankyou to Willie and Marie as well as the staff for the amazing hospitality and making our stay worth it. The breakfast was absolutely delicious - made perfectly at our request. Anchorage Guest House felt like home away from home. Definitely would recommend this place to those who are traveling to Plettenberg Bay!
