Raglan Sunset Motel
Ranked #1 of 1 Hotels in Raglan
Reviewed 1 July 2014

We stayed in the Tahu Suite. The person we first met was very friendly and helpful, something his partner could learn from.
The room was roomy, clean, large and very comfortable.
We visited in June so it was convenient to only have to walk 2_3 minutes to the shopping center.
If I visited Raglan again I would definitely consider staying here again.

Room Tip: Try the Tahu Suite if you want plenty of space and privacy

The motel was lovely, comfy bed etc. Close to town in fact very handy for what we wanted. BUT we had a very bad night due to the liquor store chiller next door backing onto the motel. It went off and on all night and every time it started up we were woken. I said something about it when we checked out and all that was said was "it's doing it again is it?" Rather knackered for the drive home in the morning.

Room Tip: Get them to put you in a room at the office end of the motel

Staying in Raglan for business it was nice to have somewhere convenient to local eateries and not too out of the way. The rooms were fine, no problems. It was nice being able to use the courtyard area. If I stayed there again I would prefer a room on the second floor.

This was our second time staying at this motel, and again we were not disappointed. We stayed in a two bedroom unit, over two floors. The unit was finished to a high standard and had everything you could need. Also it had two bathrooms, unlike all the other two bedroom units we stayed in on our trip around the North Island.
The motel is located just a few minutes walk away from the main street.
We are already looking forward to our next visit to NZ, and this motel.

We booked in November for a 3 night stay in February. We booked a two bedroom apartment. The motel advised that these were not actually at the motel but down the road a bit so we asked for something similar at the motel itself. We were told then that it would be a studio which we could live with but we were not told that it would not have proper cooking facilities. After being shown to our room and discovering this we went back to reception to advise that we had brought food with us and intended to cook meals, in particular breakfast. They were not at all interested in putting us in a room that better suited our needs. There is an electric frypan and some basic plates, utensils etc but no sink, no way to clean up at all. They told us to use the frypan then stack everything up when we went out in the morning and they would clean it up. We returned at 1:30pm on day 1 having purchased some local bread and fillings and everything was just as we had left it - no clean plates or cutlery. We went to reception again and asked why they hadn't done what they promised. Again not interested, we were told, they would get to us when they could. It was done eventually. On day 2 this worked slightly better. The room servicing is basically a dishes and towel swap. They don't make the bed or clean anything. On the third day they didn't replace the coffee or any other supplies which we discovered the next morning when getting up to make a coffee. We rang reception to get some. Again not interested, wait until 8pm until the office is open, tough luck, was their reaction.

Other gripes - despite booking a long way in advance we were given the disabled unit. We don't know why this wasn't kept for disabled people or last minute walk ups. Wasted on us. The bed was quite firm as many have said.

Good points - the location, which is an easy stroll to town and many other places is excellent and the courtyard in the middle with outdoor furniture was very nice.

Could be a great motel but let down by shockingly bad service. There is lots of accommodation in Raglan, try elsewhere.

We tried to stay here for two nights but they couldn't accommodate us. Instead they found us a lovely place for the second night. The motel was clean, the facilities were immaculate and the staff were lovely.

We booked this accommodation a night or two before landing in Auckland. It's an ok drive after landing in Auckland and a famous place for surfing. The accommodation was typical, with no problems but nothing exceptional to give a 5 star rating. The room was spacious, had appropriate facilities and a comfy bed. The hosts were nice and polite. There was no view but a good place to stay for the night in raglan. The only disappointment was raglan itself, as from someone used to living by the beach for their life it is still a drive to get some waves and get to the main breaks. Overall nice and easy location, level walk to a range of restaurants, pubs and swimming in the lake. 4 stars
