 "Over my many years travelling, Suzi and Greg have been the benchmark. Their welcoming manner, kindness, support, knowledge of the industry and whats happening locally, makes for the perfect stay in Paihia. They are the perfect hosts and the perfect ambassadors of the Host franchise. Just a shame I can't stay more often in the north. Good luck Suzi and Greg"

"Great location awesome hosts and lovely rooms. Hosts are always willing to go that extra mile very accommodating. I return regularly for business but always sleep well in this nice quiet location. Walking distance to beaches and cafes."

"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."

"We have been visiting for a number of years now ever since the youngest of us were lucky enough not to have a day job. Our welcome has always been such that we both feel we are now part of the wider family of Outrigger guests. An example of the sort of treatment you can expect is that last weekend we again stayed there for the annual Bay of Islands Jazz and Blues Festival."

"From check in to check out, there is a feeling of warmth and comfort about this place. Very friendly hosts and staff, nice clean and well-maintained units with everything thing you need for an enjoyable stay. The location is perfect. Away from the touristy and traffic centre, so very quiet and peaceful, yet only 100m to the wharf and all the shops and amenities in between. Right next door to a small supermarket with all your food requirements and chilled wine, it doesn't get much better than this."

"Best little motel in town! I have stayed here many times over the summer whilst I have been diving, and each time I come back the experience is wonderful. The rooms are modern and really well equipped - everything you could need is provided and clean. The showers have great water pressure, the bathrooms are generous in size and the beds are super comfy :) It is perfectly located, just up the road from the main attractions of Paihia which means it is close to all the action but also quiet in the evenings. You can tell that the owners take great pride in their motel and that they really value their customers - I couldn't recommend them and the Outrigger more highly. Victoria Hart"

"Room was immaculate, clean and quiet. They have a nice big spa and little courtyard next to it to enjoy a bbq .Walking distance to everything. Would stay again. Thank you."

"Arguably this is the most convenient motel in Paihia. The shops are within metres and the wharf required for a number important activities in the Bay of Islands is a less than five minute walk. (while there is plenty of accommodation in Paihia not all of it is handily situated. The room, kitchen and bath/toilet was very clean and spacious. The Kitchen is generously equipped and the furniture of a high standard. Travelers can book here with confidence."

"We stay at Outrigger several times a year on our visits to Paihia to see family. The Outrigger is so central to all the happenings in Paihia. We love the waterfront park and the restaurant with the big deck out on the water. Why go overseas when we have the beauty of the Bay of Islands so close and so accessible?"

"Rooms are always clean tidy and modern . . . Handy location within walking distance of everything!"

"I love Paihia and Outrigger Motel The Outrigger is so clean and very comfy and in a very handy location that is so central. The Economical studio is a cute little compact room and all I need. I enjoyed staying there, and will definitely come back whenever I go to Paihia."

"Warm and Welcoming! 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."

"This is a lovely little motel, always clean and tidy, and the owners are very friendly. I only go once a year, but they remember me, a nice touch. The rooms are more than big enough, and they are always spotless. I ordered breakfast which arrived at the appointed time, and it was very large and tasty, I didn't need morning tea. The other benefit about this motel is its position, right by the shops, restaurants and only a few metres from the waterfront, off the main road, so it's nice a quiet. Whats not to like. I will be back next year and maybe earlier."

"Thank you for hosting us at your motel complex. We found our stay comfortable warm and welcoming. The daily housekeeping was excellent and non-intrusive. It was a peaceful quiet place also and the closeness to the town was great for breakfast, lunch or dinner. I will recommend your motel to other colleagues for future use as a venue.
