After a fairly long & scenic drive from Auckland we were pleased to pull into this lovely place. Check in was smooth & very friendly. We had booked a studio room & were told we'd been upgraded to a 2 bed apartment (I thought this only ever happened to "other people"). We were shown to our room & given some... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in Feb 2013 on our honeymoon, our room was massive (we got 2 bedrooms!) the view of the sea was stunning. Aileen was very friendly and helpful throughout our stay. We booked our jet skiiing activities through the motel which was helpful. There are some lovely resturants we went to including the Waterfront, and... More

Opposite beach and easy walk everywhere else. Aileen booked us into tours and gave us discount cards for restaurants all very good service. Would liked to have stayed longer than our 3 days but...

Great place to stay, very convenient, easy to find - right on beach and close to centre. Small (but adequate) pool if needed. Kitchenette was a real bonus. All facilities and clean and tidy. Aileen was great, very friendly and helpful - small shared balcony only reason it did not get 5. Wish we had stayed longer - maybe next... More

This motel is superbly located on the beachfront, close to restaurants, and has first class facilities and fittings. Although we had been a little concerned about possible noise from the nearby main road this proved not to be the case. Very helpful hosts. One slight downside is the way some guests choose to sit outside units and smoke with the... More

We enjoyed the Anchorage Motel! The room was spacious and the bath luxurious. We used the jacuzzi tub each night. The bed was large and comfortable. I appreciated the internet access and the kitchenette was a plus. Aileen was a sweetheart; very helpful and her recommendations were spot-on! Definitely recommend!!

Booked at last minute and was very happy to find one of the most tidiest motels I ever stayed in. Close to all amenities as well as a quality view across the bay with the beach just meters away, we couldn't ask for more. Well done Denis and Aileen, keep up the great work!

I travel for business and, when in the area, always travel for an extra hour after my working day has finished to stay with Aileen & Dennis. I have done this for a few years now as their accommodation is as comfortable and well appointed as any modern home. I stayed most recently with my teenage daughter for two days.... More
