A tad disappointed.
This place is in a fabulous location, but she’s one tired old lady in need of lots of TLC. Staff are friendly enough. Lots of noise from late night drinkers outside in the seated area. Please note *If you book a Double Room you run the risk of getting a Twin.

Better out there
Room clean and tidy though the mattress needs replacing and there was a leak in the bathroom from either the toilet or the shower. Hotel smelt of cooking fat which the English cooked breakfast was dripping much so we both felt sick from it for the rest of the day. The staff were lovely however the constant banging of the hotel reception underneath our room made for not a pleasant nights sleep. We wasnt given the room we paid for either. There are nicer hotels to stay in the area for the same price

not bad
Staff really friendly breakfast was fab.. bathroom in the room definitely needs updating and the mattress on the single bed needs replacing in all nice place but needs some work on it. Do not like the fact people bring dogs into the eating area.

Great location. Friendly & helpful staff
The staff here were wonderful and couldn't do enough to help. From the day I rang ahead to the time we stayed, they went the extra mile to make sure that we were all looked after even when the breakfast wasn't officially due to start they made sure we didn't go hungry. 4 of us stayed in one of the family rooms prior to a track day at Anglesey. The room was up to standard and the food & drink in the bar was great. I would definitely return next time I need to stay over in the Anglesey/Holyhead area. The picture is the view across the lake from the hotel.

Very good 8.0
This is a well located hotel and is perfect for visiting local areas of interest . We found the staff to be cheerful and helpful and the breakfasts were a delight. The major downside was the condition of the bathroom which needs a complete upgrade. This would, however, not deter us from visiting again.

Overnight stay after ferry
Very close to Holyhead port for overnight after late arrival. I forget to let the hotel know I would be so late checking in ( gone midnight) but they waited up for us. Felt bad for forgetting but we were welcomed even when it was so late.

Good hotel for car travelers
The Anchorage Hotel was quite pleasant, and their staff was very helpful. My room was clean, comfortable and quiet. The food in their restaurant was good. My only issue with this place was logistics. The hotel is located on the outskirts of Holyhead. This is important to know if you are travelling by rail and plan to take a ferry to Dublin the next day. Although there is a bus that goes into the city, it broke down on the day of my visit. There are cabs, but demand often outstrips supply. I was able to get one to take me to the port on time, but that was by sheer luck. If you are traveling by car I can recommend this hotel unreservedly, but if you are traveling by rail I would suggest something nearer to the port.

Dated but great service and staff
After the initial shock of how dated the hotel was, it grew on us and we came to really like the place. Food and service and staff were brilliant. If it could justhave some money spent on updating it, it would be 10/10. Lovely views and would happily go back.

Perfect comfortable stay.
We stayed here as a stop over before going to Ireland the next morning. We arrived late but check in was easy. Our room was perfect for a family of five. A double bed, three single beds and a travel cot were all ready for our stay. A lovely night cap in the bar before bed. Breakfast the following morning was plentiful. Good selection to choose from. I would definitely recommend this hotel. Perfect for our stay.
