Review of Outrigger Motel
4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 25 Nov 2018via mobile
Spotlessly clean and comfortable room. Helpful staff. Really close to the hub of Paihia so wandering off for breakfast or dinner is easy. Only downside is the lack of noise control, can hear noise coming from neighboring units. Otherwise I would recommend this place for an overnight stay.
Date of stay: November 2018

We were booked for one night, the weather was bad. Once we settled in the room, we added another night. Great room, well stocked, clean and comfortable. Yan was very friendly and helpful. Can’t beat the location. Would stay there again. Everything is close by. Lots of hot water and the electric blankets worked well. Quiet location with parking. Very pleased with our choice.

Warm welcome from the owner who also left a welcome bottle of milk in the fridge and coffees and teas for me. Very clean and tidy with everything you would want for a simple motel. I would definitely stay here again - free parking and local supermarket and shops, cash machine and beach close-by.

We visited as a group of 4 staying in 2x studio.
We were in Paihia for a weekend visit.
The Outrigger was very central to the main shops and cafes.
Our studio had a kitchenette with cooktop and cane provided with utensils and saucepans. It was very clean. There was a heater and spare blankets.
Parking on site.
One minus was we ran out of hot water in the shower.
Would stay again and totally recommend

The Outrigger Motel is so well located. Walking distance to everything in Paihia. This was so great for us after busy days on the road.
A very warm welcome from Yang.
Suite super clean. Well stocked kitchen, sofa, single plus a double and a single in the bedroom. Not a lot of hanging spce in bedroom but we were there for just two nights, Bathroom with shower. The apartment was not overly modern, but it was fine for the price.
A little noisy at 8 on the last morning with guests departing on a fishing trip. Didn’t disturb us as we were making tracks to check out. A quiet place on the whole and our suite well set back from road.
Overall a great stay.
