Anchored in Family Tradition
The Royal Anchor is family owned and operated and has been since it was built in 1968. Real Bureau, the hotel's original owner, set out to create Old Orchard Beach's go to resort.
With the help of his family, Real succeeded in his mission.
Mark Bureau, Real's son, eventually purchased the hotel with his wife Claire. They have co-owned the resort for over 15 years and have continued Real's tradition of genuine hospitality. From the moment you walk into the Royal Anchor you will notice the polite staff and well manicured property. All of it is made possible because of the caring leadership of Mark and Claire.
All of us at the Royal Anchor would like to say thank you as we know we are nothing without our guests.
In the winter the Royal Anchor is completely shut down. After our last guest of the season departs, we meticulously clean the hotel inside and out. On January 2nd, phone lines open for the season, and reservations are taken by our employees in an off-site office. We begin updating the rooms and other parts of the building in April so we can prepare to welcome guests at the end of the month with the best Old Orchard Beach has to offer. This year the Royal Anchor is open from May 1 to October 12th.
