Nice rooms, comfy, but the spa leaked, and no one came to fix it. -.- Disappointed. Me and my friends had fun with the free pool. The value was okay, but could be very improved. Long way to go to be disappointed.

We were originally booked for 1 night but ended up staying at this motel for 2 nights because there is so much to do around Coromandel. We couldn't believe how clean this place was. We had a wonderful night sleep, probably the one of the best in days. Another bonus of staying at Anchor Lodge is the glo worm cave... More

Our stay in coromondel was itself a breathtaking experience. The coastal beauty of the place sweeps you of the ground. Of all the hotels/lodges we stayed at during our stay in NZ. Coromondel is the closest to our hearts. The lodge was run by few people, the were very helpful. We got wifi connection unlimited download for as cheap as... More

We stayed in a double room in the backpacker hostel. Our room had a lot of dust and cobwebs & a spider. We spoke to reception and we were moved to another room so great service there. Our room was nice & comfortable with a TV. Although the walls are pretty thin. We found the whole hostel to be pretty... More

Had the pleasure of staying here with my family this Queens birthday weekend. Our unit was really lovely, very comfortable and quiet. We appreciated the attention to detail in layout and set up. Our teens and tween enjoyed the heated pool and access to the DVD library. We had the cooked breakfast - all 5 perfectly cooked and delivered to... More

Spent just one night in their backpackers style accommodation. Booked for 2 males in a twin room. The room was clean, had nice big beds and was comfortable. Was a little warm as there wasn't any fan and it was summer. Shared toilets were quite well cleaned and maintained and had a little washing facility. Shared kitchen with loads of... More

A very friendly accommodation in quaint Coromandel. A nice and well equipped unit, that made for a comfortable evening. Host Reagan was very helpful. We had the new spa suite. WE had a few niggly problems but would recommend Anchor

Myself and my two young sons were traveling the Coromandel. Without a booking Anchor Lodge were able to sort us out some accommodation. It was of a very high standard, as is the entire complex. My sons were delighted with the heated pool and spa onsite and the grounds are laid out beautifully. The two bedroom unit was perfect. The... More

We stayed in a lovely lodge for six. Really beautifully designed and thoroughly modern, although compact for six of us, and not much of a kitchen (microwave, few rings, no oven). Great bathroom with spa bath, pretty mezzanine bedroom. Nice deck, and access to a BBQ, although not really a great view. Tiny pool, but fun for the kids. Great... More

CONS: # Only motel to ask for credit card details to ensure we don't 'run away' in case of damages. We kindly said no thank you but they did not give another option. He was rude and said "Give me your card number or leave!" Never had this before, even at hotels. PROS: # Nice and clean motel, no dust... More

regan a, Manager at Anchor Lodge Coromandel, responded to this review

The great thing about working in the hospitality industry is all of the interesting people you get to meet. These ones were certainly a special case and did not disappoint! They refused to give us any details of any sort which raised a flag immediately. Did not want to write their address or credit card details on the check-in form... More
