Thanks to our hosts who provided clean accommodation and were ever helpful. The place is safe, friendly and well located as well as quiet just off the main strip. Wifi available and reliable. Our host gave us a lift to the beginning of the falls for a run through the mangroves- awesome!

Location was brilliant - a stones throw from the middle of town. Actual room was lovely, modern, clean and everything in it. The owners were amazing and very happy to help in anyway they could. One of the best we have stayed in Paihia and would not hesitate to stay there again

I stayed at the Outrigger Motel with my husband and our friends for a night. Absolutely fantastic Motel. Lovely clean rooms and the owners/staff were wonderful and friendly. Only thing we weren't happy about is that we only stayed one night - We will be going back! :-)

After driving north for over 5 hours and covering 360 kms,.it was great kicking off my shoes, lying on the bed and feeling how great it was to feel “at home.” Of course “home” was really a long way away, but we have now been visiting The Outrigger Motel in Paihia yearly for about 5 years it might be justifiably...
