Hi Rosie…we very much appreciate your review. Our location is very central to all of the amenities our little town has to offer. Sorry to hear about the noise problem, we have addressed it by installing double glazing, ceiling and wall sound proofing, however some guests can be inconsiderate towards neighbours and be disturbing no matter what lengths we have...

Recently back from trip to Australia and New Zealand. One of the principal highlights was a 4 night stay at the Anchorage Motel in Paihia. The accommodation was first class - superbly appointed rooms, fully equipped kitchen area, and excellent bathroom/shower facilities. The car could be parked outside the apartment with glorious views of the garden, swimming pool, sun-bathing area... More

We spent a wonderful 2 nights at the Anchorage Motel. Our 2 room apartment was lovely - clean and comfortable and had everything we could possibly want including filtered water, spacious bathroom, waterfront view and a deck to admire it from with a glass of wine! The beds were the most comfortable we slept in on our 4 week holiday.... More

Hi Kerrie….that’s a very flattering comment that we very much appreciate. Not many of our guests make use of our filtered water that is available in all of our rooms. Your remarks about the spacious bath room and comfy beds speaks volumes for our recent refurbishment program and it was nice to hear you enjoying a glass of wine while... More

We had a lovely family holiday and we stayed at the anchorage. We really enjoyed this motel, so modern with a great view. Great to be able to have a swim and relax in the spa. We recommend this Motel to anyone visiting this beautiful town.

Just got to give a big thank you to Aileen for making us most welcome. We realised we were going to arrive late in the evening and phoned the hotel to say we might be a bit later than expected. Aileen was wonderful - 'no problem' - she even offered to pop next door to the restaurant so that we... More

We spent two nights at the Anchorage in a spacious 2 bed apartment with stunning views out to sea. Location is excellent, just a short walk to town so easy to leave the car and explore by foot. The apartment was very clean and well equipped for self caterers. The pool area was an excellent spot to relax after a... More

We spent three nights at the Anchorage Motel and first of all must say how convenient the motel is to the centre of Paihia. A five minute walk takes you to the centre of the small town and past various bars and restaurants and other accommodations. Our room was of good size, spotlessly clean and well fitted out. Our hosts... More

We had not made any reservations and chose this hotel based on its location mostly, with a view of the sea and the possibility of sitting outside to enjoy it.
