This is a lovely hotel on the main road into Paihai - if you get a room on the first floor you will have a wonderful view of the water. An easy walk into the main town. The room was relatively quiet and the bed was comfy so easy to get a good nights sleep. Probably the most cleanest hotel...

We had a wonderful, relaxing, 5 nights stay at the Anchorage Motel and would have loved to stay longer. Paihia as a whole is a beautiful place and Anchorage Motel was the best base to come back to in the afternoon for a wine at the little table and chairs outside our room, looking out to sea, before heading off...

We booked in to the Anchorage for 2 nights. Before the 2nd day was up we were booking in for another night. We booked upstairs - well justified. The views were stunning. The room was well appointed. We will certainly be back. Thanks Aileen and Dennis. Mike and Lynn

Lovely accomodation for our long weekend away. Very clean and well maintained throughout our stay. Highly recommended. The motel is in very easy walking distance of central Paihia. We tended to walk in to restaurants rather than take the car. A special weekend away. Thank you Aileen for your friendly hosting.

Everything was ok. Very well kept room, good view - somewhat tedious stairs to room on the first floor -especially with the luggage of a 7-weeks-journey. Very good starting point for trips to the most unbelievably beautiful islands. The beach in town is not really overwhelming. The main supermarket has closed down - you only find out when you stand...

An excellent, well priced establishment with kitchen facilities. The property overlooks the Bay with the upstairs rooms all having lovely views. The downstairs rooms also have water views. Kitchens are excellent and a bonus as restaurants in Pahia seemed quite expensive. Beds very comfortable. Spotlessly clean.
