We loved the Anchorage. Wonderful staff, clean tidy rooms! We loved the pool and spa pool. The bathrooms in the rooms were exceptional, super comfy beds too! Everything you could ask for in a motel. Would highly recommend.

What a great place to stay. Room 8 was on the 2nd floor so our balcony had amazing views out over the water. Room was immaculate and I think the bathroom was the cleaniest we have ever had in a motel room. Turned up Friday aftenoon to a very warm welcome from reception. Lovely pool and spa area. Would absolutely...

So helpful! We traveled as a group of 6 with cycles and nothing was a problem. Friendly staff make such a difference to a trip. Handy restaurant / bar next door so no need to go in search of food. Sea across the road.

We stayed in a studio apartment for two nights. Great location with direct views overlooking the sea. The apartment was spotlessly clean and had everything you needed for a comfortable stay. Free and easy parking and wi-if included in the price. Close to Paihia, shops, including a supermarket and the ferry over to Russell. Would definitely recommend this motel and...

Perfect in every respect, location, view, pool and surrounds. A sandwich toaster was the icing on the cake. Owner brilliant. Looking forward to a return trip. Spacious and comfortable unit, shaded balcony to sit outside.

Our two bedroom apartment was perfect. The view over to Russell was lovely. The apartment was clean and spacious; the staff helpful; good laundry facilities; very pleasant swimming pool. The sea was just across the road so we had the best of both worlds. I would definitely stay here again if we return to the Bay of Islands (from the...

The Anchorage Motel was ideal for my weekend trip to Paihia. The room was clean, comfy and well supplied. The staff were really welcoming, which made a big difference after a long bus ride. The beach is just across the road (as it is for many Paihia hotels) and there's an eaterie next door. There was some noise at night...

We have stayed in many Motels in NZ whilst touring. This was by far the best. The standards and comfort in the rooms were that of a four star hotel. Well furnished, big double bed, excellent shower. sea views, friendly staff. Short stroll along the front to restaurants and small supermarket. Room tip would be to get an upstairs room...
