Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We stayed just one night in the shoulder season (early May) and found the Harbour View suite exactly to our liking. On request during the booking the manager placed us in an end unit unit with no neighbours in the adjoining unit so it was very quiet. The king sized bed was very comfortable and came complete with three pillows per person.
We used the outdoor spa pool at around 9.00 pm and found it clean and an ideal temperature for a hot soak before retiring.
Upon learning the we were needing sheets and pillow cases for our next night at a bach at Rings Beach, Kuaotunu Bay offered to provided them for a small cleaning fee which solved a problem for us.

I can here with a friend I met as a backpacker. It was okay as a hostel.
It was nice with a TINY pool and a hot tub both of which were a little sandy.
The room was okay, clean but small (in a backpackers double room - as the dorms were full)
The kitchen was very basic no spices or oil but pots pans out plates etc. Felt the place was a little rundown and a little dirty in places. (Maybe just the backpackers bit) staff weren’t that chatty. In good location, towns very close.

I really liked that you could hire bikes (for free !) we cycled all the way to Waiau falls and the to then onto Waiau kauri grove. A long bike ride definitely worth it especially if you’re a cyclist. P.s there’s a hill only a short way from the lodge that’s a 15min walk to the top with a 360degree view of the town.

We were encouraged to pay when we arrived instead of using booking . com so anchor lodge wouldn't be charged an overhead. You will be in a backpacking lodge shared with a lot of other people who are noisy including the owners and their dog, children and entire family living at the lodge. Now we booked a room for 2 people for 2 nights but only with the intention of having my son stay provided my wife and I could use the bathroom when needed. The lady we dealt with agreed. A small man on the property kept walking passed my wife and looking at her and my son then approached me in our campervan and started asking me which room we booked and if we had a key and when challenged as to why he was asking all these questions he declared himself the owner then told us to get off their property with our dogs who not once barked or stepped foot out of the camper. He then got his wife to tell us the same thing. This was not an issue when we made the booking but now having spent 1 night they were making up reasons to evict us even though only my son stayed in the tiny jail cell room they gave him. My wife and I went across the road and some other relation of theirs came speeding out of the lodge with his dorr wide open then circled our camper then drove back inside the lodge. We felt threatened enough to leave. The lady promised to refund the 1 night we didn't use then emailed us today and said they wouldn't. Extremely horrible experience with dishonest and deceitful hosts. We will never come back nor recommend to anyone but we will tell everyone how unpleasant it was.

Response from ilikenicecustomers customers, General Manager at Anchor Lodge Coromandel
Responded 18 Jan 2022
Firstly I'm happy to hear you won't be back. I like nice customers. You don't arrive at a motel with dogs. You were friends of a guest staying so upon arrival you need to come to the office so we can scan your vaccine passes, you then need to ask us if we allow dogs on site and our answer would be no. Also you do not help yourselves to our facilities without asking. You were told we do not allow dogs onsite so you said you would park across the road. Then you thought it would be a good idea to ask for a refund for your friend at 4pm simply because we don't allow dogs onsite. That is the end of the story. None of us then drove around intimidating anyone. That is not how we operate but I did get a good laugh out of how inaccurate your review is. Hope you enjoy the rest of your holiday in your camper van

We stayed here for the location and because of the great reviews but were very, very disappointed. Had it been less expensive, perhaps I would not have been as disappointed. But the amenities, if you can call them that, were what I might expect in a motel that charges half as much. And it's not just the area. We visit here often and have paid the same for much better accommodation.

The bathroom in our Standard King room had no hooks or tissues and the soap provided was not only very poor quality, it was so minuscule it was barely enough for two showers, much less four as it was not replaced. The bathroom is sub par, in every way. The single closet had two crappy plastic hangers and there was no other storage provided although there was plenty of room for a chest of drawers or just something. No luggage rack, no tables, nowhere to put your bags except for the one small couch or on the floor. The mattress was rock hard and uncomfortable. And the side tables were a joke! Each side has a small, melamine shelf, about 30cm wide at the back but curved so there was barely room for the small lamp provided. And open underneath so no drawers. I barely had room for my phone and a glass of water. And there wasn't even any proper milk in the fridge! I have never ever seen this, even in this worst places. Provided were a few mini tubs, about a tablespoon of milk in each. Just awful. And we were asked twice in two days, by different staff members, if we wanted our room cleaned. Who asks that? Either you clean the room or make clear your policy to not clean. And then charge less! I could go on and on, as I obviously found a lot of fault with this place.

On the plus side, the property is really attractive and inviting, and in a great location, so it is a shame that the room was such a let down. Other positives are that it was very clean, a heated mattress pad was provided, the towels were good, the room was quite spacious and there were two Sky movie channels available. But still, the negatives definitely outweighed the positive so I don't recommend and would never stay here again.

This place is a jewel in the coromandel area, close to lovely beaches and walks. Quirky apartments make you feel like you’re really on holiday somewhere special. The owners are so lovely and hardworking to ensure guests are well looked after. We normally don’t stay in the same place twice but for this place we are willing to make an exception. See you again soon! Five BIG stars.

A lovely place to stay. The Lodge has very comfortable rooms with everything we needed and the staff were very friendly and helpful. A short walk to eateries, the hotel and bottle shops in a cute old-timey village environment.

Excellent location and beautiful surroundings. I stayed in the hostel part of the complex as there were no available self contained units for my travel dates. The room was nice and bed comfortable and for a private room good value. The layout of the hostel was a little strange and meant to access the ladies bathrooms you had to walk into the kitchen area. And the bathroom facilities were uncomfortable with no where to change after a shower. The rooms were also very noisy and TV could be heard two bedrooms away. I would stay here again if I could book a self contained unit as I found the setting nice, the staff friendly and location was perfect.
