Stayed at Anchorage Motel over two nights and really had a fantastic experience. Great room (stayed in the Spa-bath room which comes highly recommended) and the staff were very helpful with great local knowledge. On the Saturday night, at around 2 or 3 a.m., a few guests returned in an intoxicated state and were being very noisy outside so one... More

We stayed here over ANZAC weekend and had a very pleasant stay. The room was clean and comfortable with a more than adequate kitchen. There was a nice range of tea and coffee including a plunger with accompanying sachet of coffee and cookies to go with. We used the spa and it was very clean and nice and hot. The... More

This is a lovely hotel on the main road into Paihai - if you get a room on the first floor you will have a wonderful view of the water. An easy walk into the main town. The room was relatively quiet and the bed was comfy so easy to get a good nights sleep. Probably the most cleanest hotel... More

We had a wonderful, relaxing, 5 nights stay at the Anchorage Motel and would have loved to stay longer. Paihia as a whole is a beautiful place and Anchorage Motel was the best base to come back to in the afternoon for a wine at the little table and chairs outside our room, looking out to sea, before heading off...

We booked in to the Anchorage for 2 nights. Before the 2nd day was up we were booking in for another night. We booked upstairs - well justified. The views were stunning. The room was well appointed. We will certainly be back. Thanks Aileen and Dennis. Mike and Lynn

Lovely accomodation for our long weekend away. Very clean and well maintained throughout our stay. Highly recommended. The motel is in very easy walking distance of central Paihia. We tended to walk in to restaurants rather than take the car. A special weekend away. Thank you Aileen for your friendly hosting.
