    Excellent guest house close to town.

    Excellent guest house close to lots of restaurants and bar. Very friendly hosts, nice room, missed breakfast as we had to leave early but it was a good place and I’m sure it would have been lovely. felt safe, clean and good value.

    Friendly hosts, wonderful place.

    Peter and Sandy were amazing hosts. Very friendly and welcoming. Felt like staying with (very attentive) friends! A guest house with real charm, character, 1000x better than a soulless chain hotel would have been. I will definitely make Anchors Rest my default place to stay in Umhlanga.

    Herzlich Willkommen

    Obwohl wir zu früh anreisten, wurden wir herzlich begrüsst und empfangen. Das Guesthouse ist ideal gelegen, da man zu Fuss zum Lighthouse, zum Granny Pool sowie ins Zentrum zu den verschiedenen Restaurants gelangt. Sicherheit wird in diesem Quartier sehr gross geschrieben, wir fühlten uns jederzeit sicher.
