My husband and I stayed here for a night on December 4th in room (chalet?) 3. Room was clean, bed wasn't bad and location just a short walk to town. We enjoyed the walk recommended by the front desk. Only gripe: No free wi-fi ($5 and a little spotty)

This was our second stay at Anchor Lodge having first stayed 8 years ago when we originally visited New Zealand and we weren't disappointed on on either visit. We stayed in a spa unit which was at the rear of the motel in a small cul de sac with a separate entrance (5 units only round there), it was lovely... More

We stayed for one night on a Coromandel adventure. We were lucky to get a room as nearly sold out. They allocated us a two bedroom unit next to the pool and spa. The room was sparkling clean and the amenities were superb, and has the essential free wifi. As addicted travellers we have stayed in hundreds of motels and... More

Based on reviews and the outward appearance there were high expectations for this place and was disappointed when I checked in. The private motel units looked quite nice, but the backpackers’ accommodation was not of a high standard. The biggest problem with this place is the privacy in the showers. The showers only have a shower curtain for privacy and... More

Anchor Lodge Motel also does have a hostel which makes up a very small part of the property. This was renovated to a high standard last winter with new paint, carpet, soap dispensers, tv's, dvd players, more dvds added to the 300 or so library (free), new bikes (free for guests to use) and it has never looked better in...

We had a studio unit, only 15 m2 but had every item we required. Appeared to be recently redecorated, absolutely spotless, very helpful and courteous french staff on reception. Would highly recommend this to travelers.

Stayed in the hostel accommodation, nice room, clean, with a tv on the wall. Large shared kitchen and outdoor terrace area with picnic tables. Staff very welcoming and friendly. Only negative was there was very poor wifi signal, not worth $5 for 24 hours, although it is the only wifi you can get in the area, local pubs etc don't... More

Neat little challet style motel. Nice room, with double and singe bed. Kitchen facilities. Small but complete bathroom. Very welcoming receptionist. You need to go up three steps to get to the rooms, so some may have problems with access.

We really enjoyed staying here. They were kind enough to give us an upstairs , easily accessible room with a view. My friend does not get around well. The room was clean, light and airy with a balcony to sit and enjoy the bay view.. It was only a 5 minute stroll from the town which has some fantastic eating... More

From the outside - wooden cabins, fishing-village-type set-up. On the inside - Wow! A very good price for a very comfortable two nights. Not in the centre of Coromandel - but a really lovely stroll for those who don't mind a nice, 10-minute walk. Reception very helpful. Very clean and definitely not budget accommodation - but for a very reasonable... More
