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 three nights at Anatoki Lodge (originally booked for four) and found it to be the perfect spot to explore this part of the region. It's location means you can walk to town and despite being on the main road it's nice and quiet.
The owners were marvellous and very accomodating when we left a day early to move on to Blenheim.
What stood out to us was the cleanliness, that was outstanding and is very important to us.
This is a highly recommended place to stay!!

The host was really friendly and welcoming. The studio room was really big and roomy with a comfy seating area and dining chairs and table. It had good kitchen facilities too if you want to do your own cooking. A good location and very quiet.

We stayed for 2 nights at Anatoki Lodge whilst visiting the area. We had unit number 10 which had 2 bedrooms. It was very spacious with its own peaceful patio and garden area to the rear. The unit was very well equipped with everything we needed, spotlessly clean and with very comfy beds. There was an indoor swimming pool which we didn't get to use and onsite laundry facilities. There was even an area where you could hose your car down if needed. The owner, Gillian was very pleasant and helpful offering plenty of advice not only on the local area but also for our onward travel. I would recommend a stay here.

We were checked in by a really lovely, friendly lady who was just covering for the owner. She was very obliging and tried her best to do everything right. The room was great, old school, huge, comfortable and very clean. Great comfy bed and an awesome shower. I had trouble trying to get on to the Wifi and went to reception, admittedly it was around 8.30pm but I needed Wifi. Not sure if it was the time or just me, but I got the distinct feeling the owner, who had returned from where ever, was grumpy. She sorted the Wifi code then says, 'I notice we don't have your credit card. (I had been to try pay 3 x while she was away and was told to pay in the morning). Any way, she put me off, we were going to stay an extra night but decided to move on. On checkout, still not friendly, oh well.

Very spacious rooms, comfy beds. Clean units. Lovely private outdoor garden area to have afternoon drinks. So close to restaurants & cafes it’s an easy stroll to eat out or browse the shops. Family friendly. The pool is currently closed for maintenance so might pay to check with management if that’s something you’re looking forward to. Hosts were friendly & helpful. We were traveling with friends & enjoyed having our rooms right next to each other to maximize usage of the lovely private outdoor area.

Fantastic location, easy walk into 'town'. Host was very friendly and helpful. Room was immaculate and spacious (a tad dated but who cares, it was comfy and clean) with everything we needed albeit the room was noisy at night from the traffic outside (not the motels fault). Awesome patio area, great pool (family friendly), guest laundry and line. Had a brilliant stay here. Highly recommended

Hi. Thank you for your review. We are in the process of updating the rooms and hope to have them completed over the next year. Unfortunately, some traffic noise comes with being in the great location that we are in. Thank you for staying and hope to see you again soon. Regards, Gillian

Clean and tidy units with good friendly service from the husband and wife team who were looking after the place. There certainly was plenty of room in them with extra seating to watch TV if you have time for that...and if you do it's always nice not to have to lie on the bed! Speaking of beds they were comfortable and there is an extra single bed in the units for an extra guest or to throw all your luggage on!

They were quiet and we heard little noise from the trucks that go past in the early mornings.
Tea/coffee and kitchen all provided so you can make your own breakfast and even sit on the sunny patio outside in the morning.

I would have rated this motel very good if it were not for the shower!! If you spent long enough in it and ran around you could still avoid getting wet!! It was so bad we compared every other motel shower to it. It was positively hopeless and after a long days exploring one always appreciate the small things in life ...like a good shower!!! If you are planning to wash your long hair like I was be prepared to take a very very long time..............
