The weather was wet and windy when we ate dinner here but as all rooms face the sea I'm sure on a good weather day the view would be wonderful from the restaurant too. It is an intimate restaurant on 2 levels with a bar on the top level (just a few steps up). I had the halibut and my... More

We stayed at the hotel and used the restaurant just once but were very impressed. Probably the best clam chowder I'd had in Canada! A good menu, well cooked and well presented. Certainly worth a visit.

Staying in the hotel, not wanting to drive, we went down to the restaurant/bar. The server was very pleasant, the view was nice. It was a quiet place, which I liked because it was easy to have a conversation. I ordered the steak sandwich with fries, which was DELICIOUS. The beer was cold, my steak an fries were hot, and...

Older hotel with the same dated restaurant. That being said it was clean and the view over the water is spectacular. For a free buffet breakfast as part of your hotel stay it was quite good. Fresh scrambled eggs (not powdered), real freshly cooked bacon and nice pancakes and hashbrowns. They have a toast station which was my only complaint.... More

The restaurant was filthy. Both the hotel and restaurant were very run down and had obviously not been well maintained. The waitresses at both dinner and breakfast were obviously not happy with their jobs and could barely be civil.

Breakfast of scrambled eggs, two rashers of bacon, hash browns, and toast was good, hot, and tasty. The hash browns were especially good. The coffee was absolutely terrible. The breakfast was free with the room and this was the only choice. Unfortunately, there is no gluten free option or alternatives for those with a dairy intolerance. The coffee creamer comes... More

Checked in to the Anchor for the last time this week. Came from my isolated area for medical reasons, which I have done many times before. Requested a kitchette suite. Was booked into a run down junior suite with a microwave and a mini fridge. Discovered at 10 pm the heat did not work. Was provided a space heater and... More
