We loved our visit at Outrigger Motel. The staff was super friendly and helpful. About five minute walk to the beach and even less to stores and restaurants. Possibility to do laundry and quite well equiped kitchen in the room. Free car park and Wi-fi.

This motel is in the heart of town, just down from the pier and the metro Countdown supermarket. Their twin room (slept 3) was well equipped and spotlessly clean. Free limited wi-fi for posting some of your holiday snaps online! The owners and their staff are very friendly and approachable if you needed anything. The only downside is I would... More
