Our second visit in less than 12 months further proved what a gem of a place the Outrigger is. Greg & Suzi would have to be the most professional,attentive & friendly proprietors of any hotel that we have stayed at worldwide in our 30 years+ travels. Nothing left to chance,they really care for their guests in ensuring all needs are fully met wherever possible.Units are spotless,beds are comfortable & units well furnished with quality fittings.Outside each unit is a comfortable table & 2 chairs where you can sit,enjoy the sunshine & often meet other guests doing similar.Hotel is well located in a quiet area of Williams Road,with a supermarket & a bakery virtually next door, varied restaurants,shopping, ferry terminals & the bus depot only a short 2/3 minute walk away. Greg & Suzi were only too happy to discuss & recommend/suggest local attractions of which there are many to cater for all tastes.Accommodation is moderately priced when compared with what alternatives exist in a far less convenient location. So if you want a place to stay that is like a home away from home with caring & friendly owner - operators,you won't choose better than this. If you are travelling without a car, as we were, nowhere in town is more convenient to all local day to day town amenities.Thank you for another great stay Greg & Suzi. Hopefully we will be back sometime during 2014.
