We enjoyed our stay. Plenty of room with amenities we weren't expecting, the washer and dryer was a nice touch. Only wish the pool and spa was working. The covered parking was great and BBQ and full kitchen great.

We rang the Anchorage at very short notice and they were able to fit us in to a great apartment from the 8th - 12th of January. We were advised that the pool would not be available but that did not matter as the beach was so close. Robyn was so helpful and we could not fault this accommodation. Our...

Our 10 day stay over the Christmas/New Year was extremely frustrating and disappointing. We will not be staying here again. Over the years we have stayed at the Anchorage Apartments many times and have come away with fond memories. Unfortunately this time we did not have the same experience and our stay was less than ideal for paying top dollar....

We booked a pool access room on the pool deck from 4-9 January , 4 months in advance direct with Anchorage and made it specifically clear that we were booking Anchorage as we wanted to stay in accomodation with pool facilities. I am unable to swim in the sea, so pool facilities are very important to me in hot weather...

Due to an issue with another booking, I booked in here at the last minute with no research. The lovely couple who manage the building could not have been more helpful. I was quite stressed out and they made everything ok immediately, nothing was too much trouble. Checkout was totally flexible and the wifi excellent, perfect for a morning's work....

I decided to cancel a previous booking (at another hotel) and book at the Anchorage after spotting some lovely photos on Booking.com. I choose the 2 bed apartment on the second floor as the photos displayed a modern apartment with views of the mount from the living room. I looked at the photos for each apartment being advertised (ground floor,...

Thankyou for your review.We recommend that if you are booking through a third party,such as the numerous discounted online booking sites.It is still worth calling the hotel/motel to discuss your exact requirements.Most,if not all,will offer you upgrades (often free) and can fulfill your other accommodation requirements,if they are available.Best advice we can give is call the hotel/motel before making your...

It proved somewhat of a challenge to find an apartment to sleep 4 in Mount Maunganui for anything under $250 a night. We didn't need fancy and we didn't need something on the main beach strip so after going through my usual booking apps, I went with a new one because they were the only ones who offered The Anchorage...

We absolutely enjoyed our stay at The Anchorage. Our room was just right for a family of four. The host was lovely and very approachable, making our stay even more comfortable. We were allowed to have visitors over up until 11pm, which was awesome because we were able to catch up with friends and family. The apartment was comfy featuring...

We have stayed here many times. Yes, there are major renovations going on at the moment and I've read the other reviews here, but you shouldn't let that stop you from booking in. The manager, Deb, has always looked after us - put us in apartments as far away from the noise as possible. In the weekends it's beautifully quiet....
