The Anchorage Resort is a beautiful complex located right on the shores of NZ's largest body of water, Lake Taupo. The Anchorage Resort features 21 spacious units, which have recently been refurbished with new carpets, furniture, beds and a fresh coat of paint. We have a variety of room types from large studios, one and two bedroom units and our amazing and luxurious 3 bedroom apartment. Our complex is also family friendly with our pool area recently receiving a spruce up -including a new deck. With a heated plunge pool, we offer the perfect way for the family to relax and enjoy Taupo's amazing summer weather. We also offer free Wi-Fi, off-street parking and easy access to the lake just across the road from our motel. Whatever the occasion our resort can cater to your every need, and don't forget our delicious home cooked breakfasts which are available up request. You will not find a better place to stay at for that special family holiday this summer.

Perhaps the friendliest service I had come across so far! Room wise we had the lakeside view room and it was absolutely superb - the views, amenities (heritage collection), beds were clean with heaps of linen and pillows and to mention their colour scheme for the interior

Is it too far to stay and do a day trip for tongariro crossing? Thanks
Is it too far to stay and do a day trip for tongariro crossing? Thanks
No, you can easily do this. Its best to pre-book some transport like Tongariro Expeditions as they can drop you off at the start point and pick you up at the finish point. Check out their website and you will see departure times. they pick up from motel accommodation.

I'm not sure a shuttle runs from that far out of the town. I know the bus runs from the information right in the heart of Taupo. You would need to get to that pickup point.

It was very good for us, we were in a room close to the reception building.
