Reviewed 22 February 2014

Well situated and very convenient. Basic accommodation but a bit expensive probably because of the location. The room had a good view, the pool and hot tub were very good. Laundry facility a bit tatty but functional. This was my second stay at this motel.

Room Tip: You really must have a first floor seaview to get the best out of this motel.

Dear Valerie, it was great to have you stay with us for a second time. We hope as you where here in the peak of summer that you got to relax and make the most of the pool and spa pool area and enjoyed the beautiful views from your room. Kind regards

Well situated and with views of the shores, the rooms are spacious and with efficiencies. It is a bit noisy with sounds from the street and from your neighbors but overall we liked our stay.
There is a pool and a hot tub and plenty of restaurants nearby.

We stayed at the Anchorage for a couple days in January and we loved it! The room, service and view were amazing. The front office had our tour booked and went the extra mile booking our next hotel at the auckland airport. We would recommend this hotel to anyone traveling in this area.

Very pleasant helpful owners and great room, well worth $$

The couple had a nice sleep in the king sized bed, the second room had comfy singles in it, well made and clean.

Great shampoo body wash etc

Lots of nice tea

Paihia is beautiful and this was the perfect place for us

We stayed at the anchorage just before new years. Fab location, awesome rooms and hosts were brilliant! Would go back in a heartbeat! Needed a few days away before we got married and this was a perfect getaway! One of the most beautiful places in NZ, makes me miss home that much more even thinking about it. Thanks again Anchorage!

Dear John, it sounds like you got out on the water a little bit while you where here, that’s definitely the way to do it and as you said we are located close to the wharf, restaurants and shops so nice to be able to park up your car while you are here! We hope we get to welcome you in again, if you make another trip from the UK. Kind regards
