“A lovely stay in a fab place”
Reviewed October 25, 2011

We rented a large apartment which sleeps 6 - it was beautifully appointed, very clean and well furnished. We had special circumstances and they owners couldn't have been more helpful. We spent a lot of time there and used the pools a lot. The outdoor pool was pretty warm for a wet October and the spa pool really really warm! There was a coffee plunger and 'proper' coffee in the kitchen, replenished every day, no limit to how many towels you could use for baths or swimming pools and we used the spa bath in our apartment heaps too. We have four children and they had a great time as well - although there isn't a play area, they swam loads. Best of all, the big double bed was very comfortable !

This place was absolutely fine, we stayed in the backpackers part, our room was a little small but it had a TV in the room which was a bonus so it evens out! Nice kitchen, free body wash for the showers, and very close to town and various attractions. We were only there one night and there are no complaints.

My partner and I always book Anchor Lodge when headed to the Coromandel. We have stayed in the Spa Unit, the Family Apartment and the Harbour View unit and they are all as good as each other- always clean and tidy, great facilities and very modern. The fish filleting station is great after a day out on the water (when we have caught something...!), the hosts are lovely and the location is very good too. So if a family, couple or group of friends head here!

Room Tip: The The Family Apartment is great - really good and spacious for families or even if you just want t...

We have been traveling NZ with the Rugby World Cup. We arrived into Coromandel late at night and found Anchor Lodge. The service we received, even though it was so late, was very welcoming. They showed us a big apartment that had a spa, 3 bedrooms and a big lounge area. The apartment was beautiful and with 5 people traveling, had plenty of room for all of us. We ended up staying 3 nights, but found so much to do around the area we would have liked longer (had rugby to attend though!). The staff were really helpful with tours, sightseeing etc. Definitely recommend the fishing if you like that sort of thing. They booked us with Soprano Charters. The skipper, Darryn was excellent, and we caught heaps of fish. If you are coming to Coromandel definitely stay at Anchor Lodge.

Room Tip: All the rooms are off the road and quiet (Coromandel is not a noisy place anyway). For heaps of room...

Stayed just one night but were made welcome by friendly young staff. Chose a 2 story house with great modern facilities. The bedrooms and bathroom were particularly good with excellent linens, towels etc. Would definitely return.

We are from Malaysia.Brandon was nice and convinced me to put up a night here instead of another cheaper motel ard the place.He offered us gd unit no.6 facing the beach and spa pool.We were vy satisfied and happy with the overall cleanliness,kitchen facilities,bed,toilet and new furnishings. They provide free bicycle facility and we did mountain bike ride along Coromandel beach nearby and town.It was certainly a memorable stay there! He is vy accommodative and brought us ard 3 units before he got us settle on this unit! This is one of the best 3 motels throughout my 30 days stay in north and south NZ.

Room Tip: If more budget,get the upper units with spa bath and gd beach view
