Had four fabulous nights at this wee oasis for a family break and just loved every minute. This has to be the best motel in Taupo. This motel offers so much set in a clean well maintained safe and quiet environment with extremely helpful, lovely staff. Our room was very spacious and adequately fitted out with everything we needed with very comfortable beds. The rooms serviced daily. Family holidays are about making good memories and The Anchorage Resort will definitely will be part of them! Thank you for a lovely stay!

We unexpectedly had to stay a night in Taupo last minute, and when calling the hotel, they were super helpful and offered a great discount too. Warm and well maintained rooms. Would definitely stay again.

I stayed here with my sister for the weekend. The room was spacious and clean with a beautiful view over the pool and lake. The room also had a smart TV which I wish more motels would have! The pool was the definite highlight, it was the perfect temperature and right by the hottub. The only downsides were that the checkout time was pretty early (10 am ,so on par with New Zealand, but early compared to other countries), it wasn't clear how to get to the pool from our room (but we only went the long way once) and the bed wasn't the comfiest.

These rooms are neat comfortable and convenient. We could walk to the water or two mile bay yacht club pizza bar within 2 minutes. The staff were knowledgeable and friendly. Rooms were quiet, beds and pillows very comfortable. Wifi was a little patchy, but it was nice to relax in the hot spa or warm pool. I would definitely stay again.
