Anchorage Motel

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 5 weeks ago

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.

Pictures on line are true to what you get; comfortable room, clean, spacious, plenty of storage space, had a kitchenette including a refrigerator and microwave. Wonderful shower, good water pressure and very hot water if you wanted it! Our room was on the ground level and looked out to the water. Motel was easy to find, parking was adequate. Good location; we parked our car and walked to everything we needed. Coral was very friendly and helpful. Very happy that we booked this hotel; would stay here again.

Lovely stay. The room was quiet clean with everything in it that you need and a lovely view of the sea to go with it. Even though a storm rolled on through on our night stay it was still great and we enjoyed every bit of our time there. The service was great, they were really outgoing and friendly. I would certainly go back there again and would recommend this motel to anyone.

My partner and I stayed here for 6 nights and all we can say is wow! Rooms are exceptionally clean and the staff are very friendly. Great location and if you are on the first level the view is picturesque! We will be back!
