We were warmly greeted by Suzy and shown over our accommodation. The location is just excellent, especially as my father has slight mobility issues. The rooms were immaculate and comfortable, excellent value for money. Am happy to recommend Outrigger to others and I'm sure you will receive an equally warm welcome.

Conveniently located and easy to find, we spent 4-nights at the Outrigger on our holiday in North Island. Ran by Suzi and Greg who are helpful, efficient and friendly, the Outrigger motel is well appointed, clean and well maintained. Our room had beds for three: a large double-bed room and a single bed in the sitting room, an attached bathroom... More

We were given a very warm welcome by the owners(I think Suzy & Greg), I should have written my review earlier, the memory for names is not what it used to be!

This Hotel is very central and a 1 minute walk to a 4 square, Indian and pizza/pasta restaurant. Room was smallish but for only $140.00 in such a central location you cant complain. Shower was a little light in water pressure, but a good ceiling fan to keep you cool. Owner/reception lady was friendly and helpful. Ice tray in fridge... More

This is a well run place with the owners in place for 13 yrs, and it shows. All under control and very functional units. We stayed for 4 nights and the day service was efficient. Car parking is a bit tight but it works.

I've returned to this wonderful motel for the second time within 16 months and this time took a five-day vacation. There was a reason for choosing this particular motel and I was not disappointed.
