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

We have recently had the pleasure of staying 2 nights at this motel. The hosts are very friendly and welcoming and go out of their way to make your stay enjoyable. Our room was quiet, comfortable and clean with all advertised amenities. Good value for money. We hope to return soon.

centrally located but very quiet after dark. We found it very handy for restaurants and bars a short walk onto the seafront. The room we had was clean and well maintained and the free WiFi was a bonus. There's plenty to do including taking the ferry across to Russell a beautiful village over the bay, try a catamaran sail with... More

I can confidently say that Outrigger is a nice place to stay at Paihia, if you are not too fussed about staying at a property offering sea views. Centrally located and well managed by friendly owners Suzi and Greg. Will be back soon, for sure.

Suzi was great on our arrival, made us feel very welcome and helped with advice on where to park after our stay when we would have to leave the car overnight with some things in it. Perfect location, all the facilities you would need and in immaculate clean condition. Would recommend to anyone and stay again without hesitation.
