The Anchorage is a great place to stay, the hosts; Aileen & Dennis; and staff are very friendly and ensured that our time there was great. Our room was very comfortable and clean, and had everything we could possibly need. Being less than a minute from the beach (just across the road), a five minute easy walk from town and the tour booking facilities, The Anchorage is ideally located. Also has a restaurant next door which is okay, but plenty of other places to eat within easy walking distance.
The only draw back was two nights when people decided to have a gathering across the road under the tree and the noise carried across to us very clearly. We solved the problem by closing the windows and turning the air conditioner on. This is obviously out of the control of the hosts and should not deter anyone from staying here. I am fairly sure that the groups were moved along; possibly by police; as the noise on both nights did stop very abruptly. On our last day we discovered ear plugs in the bed side tables!
We will definitely stay here again the next time we are in Paihia.
