“Nice balcony ...food expensive ..”
Reviewed 7 July 2013

Nice old pub ...cool balcony on main road of Raglan -good place to have a beer and watch Raglan go by. Good range of beers but not cheap for any of them. Food is pricey too...some of it was quite good ( seafood chowder ) ...but the fish and chips had tiny amount of fish and was about $24. Say what bro ?

No idea what it is like to stay at the Harbour View Hotel, although the location couldn't be better.
But if you want to eat in Raglan and aren't looking for somewhere suave (and expensive), I'd recommend it. We eat there a couple of times when visiting grandkids at Christmas 2011/2012 and didn't hesitate to return a couple of times in February 2013.
Certainly better than standard pub grub and whopping portions. The grandkids love it!

Stayed over night with my in laws having a quick trip from Auckland. Great location in the centre of Raglan. Small basic rooms with no en suite but toilet and bathroom just at the end of corridor . Hotel is really like staying in an old western movie set. Full of character. Recommend evening menu in the hotel restaurant. Good value and good choice.
Very clean basic accommodation and great value for money.

Ever felt like an uninvited guest to a party? That's what it feels like here. They seriously need to do some work on their customer experience. Location is superb, food is standard pub fayre. Their staff are just dreadful.

We were so dissappointed, we checked in for 2 nights and had to pay up front, the facilities were so bad we left the next day. we didnt realize that we would be sharing the bathroom with all the other guests, 1 female bathroom and 1 male bathroom and had to wait for over an hour just to get in to have a shower. If we had been paying back packer prices we may have expected this,but for the 2 nights it cost us NZ$220. The food in the resturant was equally as bad and over priced and the staff very unfriendly. We have travelled all over the world and would rate this as a very bad experiance.

Difficult for harbour view as stated above and I was upstairs. Problem being I booked by the website and expected a double bed and room described. Not so. Extra $20 for room pictured on the website after I arrived. Only one power point in the room so you either run the small cheap heater in the room or use computer /hairdryer / whatever.. and freeze. Room is quite nice with old wooden floors and basin (by the way, hot water doesn't work) oops... bit peeved that 1st room was tiny single bed and paying extra for what is described on the web. Decided to spend my money at pub up the road after that so can't comment on food / service. Place good for a flop only.. but not bad for flop at about 40 bucks... Look around and spend a bit more for some comfort at Raglan
