Trust me this is definitely one of the best Motels in the area. Everything was well kept and very clean, my family and I had a terrific time. Apart from the excellent room the motel is located in a great area close to shops and restaurants as well as a beautiful view of the ocean. I highly recommend this place... More

The Anchorage Motel was just perfect for our 2 day stay in Paihia. It was only a short walk to the shops and Aileen and her team were very helpful. Everything was clean, tidy and modern and the view from our top balcony was superb. Loved staying here.

Stayed here for two nights, and had a wonderful experience. The room was wonderful, spacious, and clean with a great view. There was bit of confusion at check in. We requested late check in when we booked through a third party website, but the owner was expecting a phone call to let her know that we'd be arriving late. Completely... More

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
