Enjoyed overnight stays both times. Rooms were large, very clean and well equipped. Staff were helpful and friendly. The spa and heated pool was clean and nice after a long drive. Can't beat lakefront views! Would highly recommend this place. Thanks Anchorage Resort.

My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights with our young family - boys aged 7, 5, and 1. Everyone loved it. The pools are so warm and the older boys could pay in the pool while we watched on from our room and patio. Kitchen was equipped well enough for us to have a basic breaky take away...

Could not ask for more friendly staff; rooms where clean, fresh and modern. Comfiest nights sleep I have ever had in a motel/hotel. Great atmosphere, close to town but far enough away for peace and quiet. I know where we will be staying again.

Greeted by warm and friendly hosts. The room was amazingly clean and spacious with awesome views of Lake Taupo on the doorstep. Great pool and jacuzzi. The staff couldn't help us more, when asked for extra milk and washing powder our wishes were granted at no extra cost. Very reasonably priced and would definitely recommend staying if you visit Lake...

Spent a lovely 3 days - spotlessly clean, tidy and comfortable. Our spacious one bedroom upstairs room overlooked the pool and garden area out to the lake. The complex has a lovely atmosphere and we received really helpful tips on local attractions from the hosts. Would recommend to any travellers and we will certainly stay again.
