Dropped in there for lunch on the 29th June 2014 and ordered fish a chips (one piece) for my partner. The fish, gurnard we were told, arrived and a packet fish bite would have been a better description it was that small. Staff not the remotely interested in discussing so I paid an exorbitant price for a few chips and... More

Room was dusty, stains on curtain and bedspread. Shower mouldy. One hand towel to share for 10 rooms. Plastic plants gathering dust everywhere. No info given on who to call if we needed anything. Cleaner crass and inappropriate. Shambles.

Had dinner at the Harbour View and came away with a bad experience but a substantial bill. Beautiful decor, lovely building and food that seemed to be created by a team vying for the worst in NZ. My pizza looked like one of those $4.99 ones you get in the frozen food section of your local supermarket. My wife's chicken... More

Really lovely looking place harking back to the colonial days however the food in the restaurant, whilst promisingly pricey, was really disappointing. I ordered the expensive steak on the menu and what i got was tasteless and badly cooked. I complained to the waitress and she instantly said she'd discount the food which suggested to me they have a policy... More

Dropped in for lunch as just arrived in Raglan and parking space outside. Lovely staff, but run off their feet. Nice pinot gris. Average food. Good location to sit and watch the activities of the town. Not easily accessible if disabled. A little tired on the inside.

Lovely sleepy harbour town. Just wanted to have lunch here. A few eateries, but we decided to try this one! I will say the service staff were nice and friendly and the drinks were fine. Sadly I cannot type much about the rest. Might have been a bad day.

Think bar food. But the menu is pricey for that level of fare. Main courses were disappointing (too much onion smothered the fish); tasteless lamb shank. The chocolate dessert was though a triumph. Service was pleasant and cheerful - but inexpert: we were twice served the wrong wine. Don't think we'd go back. According to the huge notice on the... More

I booked into this "hotel" last minute during my trip through Raglan. Unfortunately, it was pretty awful from start to finish. The smell that greets you in the "lobby" which is also the front bar is very musty and stale. This smell follows upstairs to the bedrooms. The room was so small and bare, I honestly felt like it was... More

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... More
