The Outrigger Motel came to our rescue when our previous booking with another motel was misplaced by the motel owner. The Outrigger was a much better prospect in a great location. Our room was clean and very comfortable. I highly recommend

Outrigger is close to everything you would need while on holiday: beach, ferry, shops and restaurants. Our room was tidy and cosy. Glassware,crockery and cutlery were perfectly clean. Comfy bed and nice shower with good water pressure. Definitely value for money.
