We stayed at Anchors Rest for 3 nights. The accommodation was pleasant and the owner, Guy ,very informative about the area. After a long hot day playing golf in Hermanus is was wonderful to go back to the tranquillity of Anchors Rest and have a swim in the pool.We had everything in our apartment that we needed and we enjoyed Hermanus greatly - we shall go back I hope.
