Had an awesome stay with Suzi and Greg at the Outrigger Motel in Paihia, they looked after us a treat, gave lots of great advice on restaurants and places to visit, they were very welcoming. Rooms were clean and bed was comfortable. Situated in the middle of town with everything within walking distance. Would definitely stay again.

This motel is so close to everything in Paihia. Cafes, shops, ferry are all within 5 minutes walk. The hosts are awesome, friendly and helpful. The room was spotless and well furnished with a fully equipped kitchen. The Four Square supermarket next door also stocked everything you could possibly need.

Stayed here for 2 nights, great location, very comfortable unit, lovely beds and very nice hosts. The location is excellent just 1 block from the seafront, close to supermarket and cafes. Great walk along the waterfront and so much to see. Nice quiet motel with units that are well appointed. Totally recommended! Greg even squeegeed our car windows on departure.

Great couple of days spent here. The owners are both really friendly and happy to help with recommendations for food or places to visit. Fast wifi, and although it doesn't seem like much, 500mb was more than enough. Free parking and easy to walk anywhere in town. Would definitely recommend.

The room was clean & spacious which suited our family of 4 really well. And the motel location was very convenient as it was close to shops, town and the ferry. There is also a grocery store across the road which made it easy to get some food and use the well-equipped kitchen.
