I recently stayed for one night, I wasn't sure where to stay, but I wanted somewhere central where I could walk to a restaurant for dinner.

I frequently stay at the Outrigger Motel and don't know why I would stay anywhere else. It's perfect for me, a busy lady, treated well, very friendly hosts, bend over backwards to help. Very convenient and nice walks in the area. Couldn't be better!

We booked two nights accommodation, the main reason for our stay was to walk the Paihia Half Marathon. The owners of this property were lovely and friendly, the rooms were well equipped and very clean. The spa pool was very welcome after a wet walk. We'd definitely stay again

We traveled with family and the units were nice and cosy. Very centrally located with easy access to shops, waterfront and highway. The owners were very nice and helpful. It has lots of pamphlets to inform about different activities around the area.

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 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.
