Good value, close to local shops & restaurants. Good location for trips out. Suzi & Greg were extremely helpful in booking trips. Only problem was the height of the microwave above the work top. Not accessible to a little person like me!!

Thanks for you review and thank you for being with us in Paihia. Great that you enjoyed our close proximity to everything and took in some of the sights of the Bay of Islands. We haven't had any comment about the microwave position before but will take into consideration when we next refit the kitchens. Thanks again for taking the... More

Good value, pretty decent clean rooms. Great location just outside the centre of town means you can easily walk to anywhere in Paihia but you're just far enough away to make sure you'll get a decent nights sleep. Would stay here again.

We booked a Eco studio room through Agoda. We were quite late because of the intercity bus and arrived at 8 pm. The Motel is centrally located, just 3-4 minutes walk from bus stand and wharf. Greg was waiting in the reception and he has explained the area with the help of a map. We were there for 2 nights.... More

Hi there, Thank you for your review and explaining our lovely close proximity in Paihia. Our guest also find it nice and quiet being back a bit of the waterfront - but still so central to wharf and beach etc. Our Eco rooms are smaller and very popular with the wood making it very cosy and quaint. Thank you again... More

We had a lovely break away. Suzi upgraded us to a 1 bedroom unit which was great. It was very clean, comfortable and quiet and had everything that we needed. The personalised welcome card and chocolates were lovely. Suzi had turned the electric blanket on for us too. The motel was very central within a minutes walking distance of shops... More

I have stayed here before and know why I come back. Suzi and Greg go out of their way to make sure your stay is enjoyable. Example: in the morning your car windows are wiped clean to make your driving so much safer. It's like a home away from home

Another return visit to a home away from home. Greg & Suzi are not only the best smaller hotel operators we have experienced in 30+ years of travelling the world but they have trained Sassy the 14 year old cat & Niko the young miniature poodle to be caring too with their greeting daily visits outside the units.

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.
