I travelled north with a group of 11 people for our annual golf weekend away. The Outrigger Motel in Paihia was fantastic. The owners were so lovely. Greeted us with a smile. They recommended places for us to eat and even booked the restaurants for us. The location was perfect to all amenities and the accommodation was fresh and clean.... More

Had a great stay at the Outrigger. Great location, friendly and helpful owners. Clean, tidy and comfortable room. A short walk to the wharf and shops/restaurants but still nice and quiet to escape to.

We have stayed several times in this excellent motel. There has always been a warm friendly welcome on arrival. The rooms are clean, comfortable and fully furnished with everything required during our stay. The motel is in a quiet location, but only a short distance to the centre of Paihia with its shops and tourist attractions. It is close to... More

We stayed here in February/March 2015, the hosts were very friendly making us feel welcome. The room was clean and tidy, and a good size for a family. Less than a 5 minute walk to the town centre. We will definitely stay here again.

We stayed in a studio unit that was very comfy, quiet and clean. Greg and Suzi were both friendly and really helpful. The room also came with the cat. Only a couple of minutes walk to the wharf and restaurants.

Great location as very handy for supermarkets and restaurants but away from any traffic noise. Only a couple of minutes walk to the sea front and the wharf for boat trips. Decent sized shower, very clean, nice comfy bed and plenty of room in the studio. Everything we needed to make breakfast and chill a couple of beers. Enjoyed sitting... More

We stayed in Unit 11, studio apartment sized, with a queen bed, sofa, kitchenette, and shower bathroom. While quite small it was very clean and tidy. Unit 11 is next door to the Reception, which means it can be a little busy in the mornings as people checkout. Also, it is directly opposite the sensor floodlight which lights up the... More

The motel is in a great location just back from the main street in busy Paihia. Easy to get to and on site parking (or a large public car park opposite). Nice comfortable room and all the facilities you need. Recommended
