Our room was very spacious and we had a view to the water. Our host was very friendly and helpful. There's plenty of things to do in the town and you can cook and refrigerate things also. We would stay here again if passing through

Description
The Anchorage Resort is a beautiful complex located right on the shores of NZ's largest body of water, Lake Taupo. The Anchorage Resort features 21 spacious units, which have recently been refurbished with new More carpets, furniture, beds and a fresh coat of paint. We have a variety of room types from large studios, one and two bedroom units and our amazing and luxurious 3 bedroom apartment. Our complex is also family friendly with our pool area recently receiving a spruce up -including a new deck. With a heated plunge pool, we offer the perfect way for the family to relax and enjoy Taupo's amazing summer weather. We also offer free Wi-Fi, off-street parking and easy access to the lake just across the road from our motel. Whatever the occasion our resort can cater to your every need, and don't forget our delicious home cooked breakfasts which are available up request.
