A perfect place to reflect. Very comfortable. I love this place. The location is wonderful, I want to stay longer. Very good spot to stay in New Zealand, such a nice place, like Byron Bay twenty years ago.

We stayed here over a weekend of bad weather but it was cosy and restful with a magical view. The suite room is immaculate and comfortable. Raglan central is very close with loads of cafes and awesome shops. We thoroughly enjoyed our time here.

This is a great modern park, chock full of conveniences for customers, including kids. The staff were lovely, and went out of their way to help us. While the sites for vans were a little lacking in foliage (aka privacy) and I suspect in summer would be top to tail over every inch of available space, our off season visit... More

What a magic spot. It's the sort of place you feel yourself unwind as soon as you walk in the door. It meet all our expectations and Sue went out of her way to return some tops we stupidly left behind. Would definitely recommend it.

Stayed here for a couple of nights, the views are to die for and lovely gardens, accommodation is homely not luxurious but the bed was very comfortable, no air conditioning and you require a car to get into Raglan but overall pleased with our stay.

This place was really cozy and awesome. We spent our anniversary here and it was really really relaxing. Sue and Gus were super nice and accommodating, even offering to drive us to and from town.

This review is a little late as we stayed here for our first 3 nights following our flights from the UK to New Zealand. It was a great place to chill out after our long journey.
