I loved how easy to access and communicate at the front desk. Beautiful room with tub and shower which we used. Bed and sofa bed was comfy. Just a little bit before town and when it was windy we didnt get much of it. Welcoming and clean.

The resort was nice, clean and friendly. Would definitely stay again. The only downside was they could find my booking, hence was a hassle checking in

Honesty cannot say a bad word about our stay at The Anchorage Resort Taupo. Our hosts were absolutely lovely, really friendly, great senses of humour and happy to help wherever they could. Same goes for the rest of their staff. We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment, situated with fantastic views of the lake. The rooms have recently been renovated, it was clean and tidy upon arrival and was equipped with everything you could possibly need for your stay. The pool and spa are amazing, perfect temperature in both. My husband and I use Taupo a lot as our holiday destination or as a stopover point for longer journeys and therefore have tried out a fair few of the accommodation around the place and we agree that this has been our favourite so far and will now be our first choice for future trips. Keep up everything you’re doing guys and thanks for the fantastic stay!
