We were looking for somewhere to stay in Raglan for only one night, and had walked past Bow Street Studios before and thought we would give it a go. It was a great experience, perfect location, clean and tidy and much larger than I was expecting. I would definitely recommend!

First- the hotel website is better than other accommodations in the Raglan area because it shows room availability and price clearly. Next- we were allowed to check in an hour earlier than the 2:30 regular check-in time which was very nice. The studio is comfortable and easy-care with a full mini-kitchen. There are lots of electric outlets and wi-fi is... More

We spent one night here and would have happily stayed longer but it was fully booked and no wonder! Delightful and luxurious. The apartments are in the townhouse style and extremely comfortable with french doors on to a sitting area and sea views/glimpses, depending which apartment you are in and a very comfortable king sized bed on the first floor.

We loved staying here - walking distance to everything in the eclectic little town of Raglan, and nice views of the water. The 2-level suite was a surprise - very spacious and more room than we needed. The kitchen downstairs was nice, as we bought some items from the market down the street and fixed ourselves breakfast in the morning... More

Two level accommodation. Very clean. Views from the upstairs only. Downstairs patio feels a little claustrophobic the garden is growing into it! The garden could do with a little love and attention. The views of the harbour are fastly disappearing behind foliage. Very handy for the waterfront and the town. Enjoyed our stay of 4 nights.

Really liked this place - stylish, spacious, clean & comfortable. Had everything we needed. Although I don't think there was aircon (?) which might be an issue during summer. When we were there, upstairs got pretty hot during the day but luckily cooled down at night. Great location. Nice little town, awesome surf at Manu Bay, surprisingly delicious kale juice... More

Stayed with wife and a baby, brought our own porta-cot. Excellent location close to the town shops, cafes and restaurants, and great views of the river inlet to the beach. For best views, I would ask for apartment 5 or greater. (We were in 5). Apartments were of excellent size, the bedroom was HUGE (great with a porta cot). Very... More

Situated right at the end of Bow Street overlooking the harbour, this is the best location in town. The 7 studios are similarly comfortable and well-equipped, with nice courtyard outdoor areas overlooking the water through trees... a great spot if you want to be in 50m walking distance of the shops and cafes... across the road from the excellent Orca...
