We rolled into Raglan on a busy long weekend without any accommodation planned - big mistake, the place was packed! We searched high and low and couldn't find a bed anywhere, so we took the last room at the Harbour View on a whim, and a little trepidation. However we had a great night! The restaurant and bar are great... More

Stopped here for a early dinner with family and grandchildren. Great spot on the main street of Raglan, old style hotel with character. As it was an early dinner and there were not many customers, so was very surprised when our meals took quite some time....luckily the kids had a snack while waiting. But had not expected too much as... More

Stayed at the caravan park at Raglan at the end of 9 days on the road hiking, while taking the evening meal in restaurants or pubs each night. With quite a few offerings, we chose the BayView Hotel because of its looks! However, the real success lay within. All the waitresses had that delightful country NZ attitude: there was plenty...

Had a great meal of mussels for lunch in coconut and chillie sauce served with garlic bread. For $16.00 for 12 mussels. Eaten here before and happy to come back. Check 1st as fresh mussels are not always available.

Although the old hotel is charming with it architecture, it does lack in amenities. Don't get me wrong, you get what you pay for. Inexpensive lodging if you are just looking for a place to lay your head, the bathrooms are communal and there is a His and Hers. The employee's were very helpful and nice. They have a good... More

Had dinner at the Harbour View Hotel twice during a recent stay in Raglan. Good variety of food available, quality very good and reasonably priced. Staff very polite and friendly. Good range of beers and wines available. Reasonably busy during both visits which means that you need to arrive early if you want a seat outside on the verandah overlooking... More

I went to Harbour View Hotel as soon as I arrived in Raglan, because its location is central and the façade is lovely. Unfortunately, the waitress told me there are no ensuite rooms, but simple rooms with shared bathroom... No, thanks. Anyways, I haven't spend the night but I tried at least the restaurant. The food was ok, the prices... More

Our small group of three experienced older travellers, booked two double rooms for one night in early January. We knew what we were booking, so no surprises. Emily who booked us in, and supplied our ice and glasses, for our drinks on the deck, was most pleasant, helpful and efficient. Our double rooms 6 and 7 faced the upper deck.... More

We stayed here for one night in November. We had a double room with a shared bathroom at the end of the hall. The hotel itself is quite charming and the dining areas are really nice. That's where it stops. Our room was very basic with a sink provided in the room. On the upper level there is a porch... More

Have eaten here before with better success. Stopped in for dinner after looking at a few sections and properties. Keen on a good beer and some comfort food. Monteiths black was awesome. Chicken and olive pizza not so much. Was hot but tasteless. Needed a much punchier tomato base and more herbs. Base was crunchy and light though. Onion rings... More
