So close to everything, yet you'd never know- it's so quiet! Come home to a niice warm room, with a choccie & personalised hand written greeting- how more personalised can you get! Definitely recommend & will definitely be back 😄

The owners at the Outrigger looked after our staff who were working in the bay of islands area like they were family. The rooms were spotless and warm when the guys returned wet and cold each evening. Attention to detail and over all friendliness the best our team has experienced in years.

What a great motel, set in the heart of Pihia. Greg and Suzie, the owners are amazingly friendly, the rooms are spotlessly clean and very comfortable. I would highly recommend this gem of a motel for both comfort and cost.

My wife and I visited Paihia with our 4 year old toddler. We stayed in a Family One Bedroom Unit. The motel is in a handy location close to two supermarkets and about 150m to the water. The room was compact and well maintained. Friendly welcoming owners. Would definitely recommend.

We only spent one night, and it happened to be on the ANZAC long weekend, so that coloured the stay a little as the price was high reflecting the weekend. Even so, I would be quite happy to visit it again. The motel is just out of the centre area, but I easily walked to the centre in 10 mins... More
