Anchor hotel
Hotel was very close to the seafront so the grandchildren had a lovely time looking in the rock pools and collecting shells Breakfast was superb

Not impressed
This hotel needs a make over. We booked a double room which wasn't very big - no wardrobe, no chair. It was stated there would be toiletries but all that was there liquid handwash soap in the smallest sink ever seen

Quaint little hotel in a small village
Quaint little hotel in a small village was perfect for our stay between St. Andrew's and Aberdeen. The staff were friendly and accommodating. We enjoyed the food and atmosphere in the bar area downstairs. Caught a splendid sunrise off the North Sea in the morning on our way out.

Hidden gem
I booked this inn because I couldn’t find anything else in the area with a room for 3 available at moderate cost. It turned out to be a complete gem of a find- a quaint but well-kept property in an historic fishing village where we walked, took pics, talked to the locals out dog walking, picked up sea glass at low tide, and had a fantastic meal downstairs in the wonderful restaurant/pub. Altogether a memorable stay- wish we could have spent a week! Of course the rooms are small and there’s no elevator -a winding staircase- but this is the real deal in the charm department. The staff was helpful and attentive. If you don’t have to have a 4-star chain hotel- and can appreciate authenticity and quality- then book it! You won’t be disappointed. PS- order the mussels- best ever!

An awesome quiet fishing village, not for thrill seekers but so peaceful and friendly, an ideal place to rest and enjoy the scenary.
