Perfect for a family!
A fabulous Motel that has everything needed for a wonderful family holiday. From the spaciousness & comfort of the 2brm unit, the great pool & spa to the awesome location beside Lake Taupo, it could not have been more perfect. Erin was welcoming & friendly & so helpful regarding times we should leave etc for our 'getting to the snow mission'. Would certainly recommend to family & friends.

Such a pleasure.
I had alaways thought the Anchorage would be horrifically expensive but reading the Hotel.com site, discovered it was not only a great price but reviews were amongst the best in Taupo. So we booked in and found it was definately 5 star treatment all the way. Reception was delightful, the setting was perfect and the parking was right outside our room and easy to park n. Only 1 space per unit but heaps elsewhere on site available. The unit was spotless, well furnished and NOT decorated in the trendy shades of brown/grey. A delightful shade of aqua in the furnishings gave the place a welcoming feel. Faciities in the bathroom and kitchen were excellent and relatively new.. The microwave a bit too modern for me and resulted in porridge spillover but I suspect any child could work it. Easy clean anyway as was all the kitchen. We had a beautiful view of the Lake although light rain stopped any inclination to walk along the beach. Really quiet at night - all I could hear was my husband snoring. I've recommended the Anchorage to our son who travels on business and to friends who like an affordable touch of 'special' when on holiday. We will return and plan to stay longer next time. Might even make use of the tempting pool on site!
