I'm a bit late with this review but we had a couple of great meals at the Anchorage. The food was really good and the staff were very attentive and knowledgeable. We'll certainly be going back

We had a good time at Anchore. We were glad with the advised that the servant Benjamin gave about the menu. After the dinner we had interesting talks about the culture, behavior and the politics in this Country.

We enjoyed all the food, oysters, line fish with very good service. Highly recommended! This place is great but has no view of the sea.

We are travelling to Birmingham on Friday 17th October and back on Saturday 18th October and were hoping to stay the night before our flight. We wondered if it is possible to leave our car at the hotel until we return on the Saturday and also if there is any transport to the airport?
