Clean, comfortable and spacious. The owners were lovely and very welcoming. They were able to give us great advice to get our car serviced. It was close to town and the beach, good views. The location meant loud traffic early in the morning though (although there was a car show in the area at the time, which may have influenced... More

Friendly welcome, studio unit had good layout serviced to very high standard. Good location to shops and wharf with a view out to Russell. A bit disappointed with early traffic noise and shower water pressure was very low otherwise a pleasant stay. Paul & Susan

The Achorage Motel was amazing, we had A+ service, rooms newly renovated and very clean. Staff were very accomodating and friendly. Beach straight accross the road makes for a beautiful view. Would definately reccomend. Wifi worked best in lounge room. Thanks for an amazing stay.

The operators were friendly and amenable. The service was good but our bin was not emptied once and our empty tissue box left and not replaced. Easily fixed but a hassle that could have been avoided. The walls were a bit thin and I was woken at 12.30am by a couple 'getting busy' next door until 2am. Situated on a... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review, it is most unfortunate our usually high standard of service let us down this time. We are indeed very lucky to be so close to the beach with an easy walk to the town centre and wharf. More

Anchorage Motel was so lovely and comfortable, we had 10 days of luxury. The owners and staff were just amazing, so helpful and friendly. I would recommend this motel to anyone going to Paihia for a holiday. The beach is just across the road. We loved it. :-)

We were delighted to find the room to be as described and pictured in the Motel's site. The bathroom was large and excellent and the amenities were there for a comfortable stay, including earplugs to cut down on any noise. We were surprised there wasn't more road noise though there was some minor disturbance from neigbours. Minor irritations, limited TV... More

I would recommend The Anchorage Motel. The owners are very friendly and the motel meet all our needs. It was walking distance to town and for the ferry over to Russell. We really enjoyed our stay and would stay there again.

We had only spent an overnight in our room, all we could think of was a few more days extra there. All though weather was howling outside, it did not take away the absolute cleanliness and pure quietness we enjoyed, it was magical! Very peaceful, just what we both needed!
