large spacious bedroom with great views. Lovely garden courtyard opening out from the lounge. Great location, walk out of your room and into town or walk around the waterfront and over the footbridge and around the harbour. Will be back for sure :)

My boss had told me I should visit Raglan and he was right it is a great little town and quite the find. I was also really happy to find the Bow Street Suites as well. I had to arrive late and the staff accommodated this by leaving a key and turning on the heat which was great because it... More

Nice clean room, great views, comfy bed, good shower, pity it wasn't the room we booked. After booking and receiving confirmation 11 days before we were due to go to Raglan we expected to stay in the cottage, but on our way we received a phone call telling us that we were in an inside room. This meant 2 of... More

We were booked to stay here, through work. What a pleasant surprise after a long drive to find a two story studio with a patio garden and a view of the harbour. The rooms were tastefully decorated, well kitted out, clean and very warm on the cold frosty nights. As we were arriving late, our hostess phoned to explain where... More

We shifted here because we were unhappy with our previously booked accommodations and it was the best decision. These 2 level studios are spacious, clean and inviting. There are basic cooking facilities for longer stays. There is also a great little private outdoor garden area linked to each of the studios. Because of the nasty weather we ended spending more...

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
