Located just across the street from the beautiful sandy beach and around the corner from all amenities- eaters, shops, activities. Affordable without the unnecessary frills. A great place to base yourself while visiting the Coromandel. Yes, its dated but clean and tidy, hot water comes out of the taps, clean crisp linen, lovely towels (sun dried?),plenty of utensils for cooking,... More

Stayed here for one night and the owner was very pleasant. Although the Unit wasn't modern,it was clean and adequate. It had a nice bed and bedside tables, 3 chairs and a table, a 2 seater setee and a coffee table. It had a TV with good channels. There was an American style kitchen which was well equipped with microwave,... More

We needed to be up early for a boat trip so we chose this motel for the location which is very close to the shops, harbour and restaurants. The room was well equipped and spacious. Everything worked well enough but it really needs a thorough updating. The wifi was free and worked well. There was a laundry room which was... More

This motel is well located on the Esplanade and close to main shopping area and restaurants etc. But...it is very dated and no information booklet whatsoever in the unit to explain facilities ( if any) about the motel or to give ideas about Whitianga's highlights and things to do. Clean, but very expensive for what you get.

An excellent location on the waterfront. It was very handy to all amenities. Well equipped with everything we needed. Easy parking outside the unit was great. It had a pleasant barbecue area for summer fun.

A very clean and comfortable motel. Offers rooms with 1 or 2 bedrooms off the lounge area. Comfortable bed and plenty of hot water. Right across the road from the beach, I stayed in unit 1 which had a pleasant view of the beach. There's a well-appointed kitchen with stove and microwave. Though I did not use it, there's a...

We drove in via a massive traffic-jam from Auckland and were in need of somewhere to chill, having tried a couple of places in Whitianga with staggering prices we thought we'd try the Anchorage & to be honest we wish we could have stayed 2 nights, great value!
