clean, tidy and value for money. Due to the weather we spent a bit of time in the room. The size of the room was enormous. By far the best pillows in any hotel I've stayed in. Only thing I would recommend is some sort of extractor fan above the hot plate. Would happily stay here again (when the weather... More

My wife and I stayed at the Anchorage Motel for 2 nights while on our honeymoon in New Zealand. The location was excellent, easily within walking distance of several restaurants and the ferry to Russell. The room was very modern and clean and offered awesome views of the bay. I have read other complaints about noise from the street and... More

We stayed two nights in a two- bedroom apartment - modern, light, quality furnishing..., one of the bedrooms was spacious and very well furnished, the other one slightly smaller and had a queen bed as well as a single bed in it, which made it a little bit cramped. My only critique would be the missing of any sort of... More

We stayed here for two nights and found it to be great value for money. Modern and very clean motel with all the facilities you need. Good position walking distance to the shops in Paihia, and a convenient place to base yourself while exploring the Bay of Islands. The only downside would be a bit of traffic noise being on... More

Anchorage Motel Paihia is very clean, comfortable, well-equipped and has very friendly staff. It is a bit close to the road, but right across the road from the beach and within walking distance of main streets.

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
