    Convenient location, close within walking distance to restaurants and leisure activities.

    Reception is not open before 7:30 am.

    Sea front location with a relatively short walk to bars and restaurants. Good sized rooms with all facilites required.

    Limited TV channels available - maybe should invest in Sky or Freeview. Surprised to find in morning that office did not open until 8.00 when we were departing on business at 7.30 am.

    Rooms are of a high standard and staff were very helpful.

    We found the staff friendly and helpful. The accommodation is fresh, clean and comfortable. The Motel is on the waterfront on the edge of the main dragg but within a pleasant walking distance to the and cafe's and shops.

    Very comfortable and well positioned motel. Friendly and helpful staff. Good facilities. Thanks a lot.

    There appeared to be a lot of heavy vehicle traffic. In discussion with the management about the problem, it transpired that a lot of it was due to water tankers delivering to a nearby resort which had had problems with its reservoir. Repairs were due to be complete in the first week of April so the amount of heavy vehicle traffic, particularly early morning!, would be drastically reduced.

    Location, superb spot directly opposite the sea with good views, pool and spa tub meticulously clean and surroundings. Apartments very good, clean, kitchen well equipped, bathroom very good too. Very nice place which it should be for the price.

    The fact that if you are on the ground floor apartments then vehicles are parked immediately outside your front door/window which blocks the beautiful views to the beach and sea which you have paid good money for. Even worse in our case when we didn't have a car and so neighbouring residents parked their huge 4x4 vehicles in front of our window instead of their own! This spoilt it for us.......If you go get the first floor apartments and your view will not be spoiled. Spa tub water was slightly hotter than required.

    Lovely views of The Bay of Islands from the motel. Near to all activities in the Bay. Next door to a really good restaurant.

    A very busy road runs by the side of and in front of the motel. The traffic noise from trucks braking coming down the hill & reviing up the hill, really was a problem from about 5am - Not ideal when on holiday. The motel was adequate if somewhat overpriced compared to accommodation elsewhere in New Zealand - although apparently Bay of Islands is more expensive. Would recommend this motel if you're not looking for anything too luxurious and if you can get a room well away from the end of the building, where the traffic noise is worst, or bring earplugs!

    Good motel. Clean and friendly staff.

    Very thin walls, you could hear all your neighbours and the traffic. If you are sensitive this could be an issue.

    Close to wharf for ferry services. Beautiful location to wake up to

    Room wasn't cleaned thoroughly each day and soap wasn't replenished.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the anchorage Hotel. There was everything you need for our 5 day stay. It is right on the water side and so handy for a dip in the sea.Aileen was so helpful to me when I needed a doctors appointment she made it and even took me there herself. A great place to stay.

    Rooms were clean and tidy. The motel is well positioned at the end of a long stretch of beach.

    Management will only supply one small carton of milk for tea/coffee-you have to buy your own after that. I find this mean as the room charges are quite high.

  • Older travelers

    The facity was just what we wanted and needed. We wanted to be able to do some of our meals and the unit had good equipment for that. We had a nice view of the Bay and water. The space was most comforatable and not crowded -nice sized bathroom wiht a good shower, roo for the dining table plus a comfortable sitting area to watch TV. we were also able to sit in thedeck outside our room for coffee, wine ,a game of cards, reading or watching the ocean. The pool and hot tub were well kept. Shopping and restauraunts were convenient for us to walk to. The office also were very good in arranging two tours that we took.The staff did a fine job of servicing the unit daily. Another positive feature of the Motel is that it is not a large place.

    The Motel is on the main street of Pahia on hte Esplanade which means that at times the road is busy durung the day and there is some trsffic noise. Anyone wanting to not have any traffic to deal with and wants only quiet should choose another location. However this also makes the location very convenient.

    The no seaview room was no way a 4½* room. It had holes in the flooring in the kitchen area, a lose wire hanging from by the steel beam in the roof. To 'unquote' their card it was not deluxe, no 32" TV, was not airconditionaed and appeared to be a converted garage. By far the worst value of the of the 7 hotels we used in NZ over 4 weeks.

    The representation that it was 4½* was misrepresentation. The 'greeting'by Aileen on arrival 'so you are the no seaview people' felt like being called a leper and the room confirmed the view.

    we were going to use the sharp knifes in kitchen,we found the knives in the block hadnt been cleaned, they still had food on them.

    The helpfullness of the owners in achieving all we wanted to do while in the bay of islands.

    The aircon unit didnt work properly.
