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.

The staff were incredibly friendly and extremely helpful with all queries we had. The rooms were neat and clean and the beds were comfortable. The location was close to everything without the town noise becoming a bother.

We stayed for 3 nights in the 'Couples Retreat', upstairs at the back. It was surprisingly quiet considering it's closeness to the shops. The unit was above a barbeque area and the spa pool building at the back, so the bedroom could potentially get some noise from that ... but we certainly didn't experience any. With the spa pool closing... More

This Motel is located in central Paihia, but far enough away that you do not get traffic or pedestrian noise. Really great value for money and we thoroughly enjoyed our 4 night stay there. Greg and Suzy are just the most amazing hosts, and go above and beyond to ensure you have a great stay.
