“Great location & helpful & friendly service”
Reviewed January 25, 2013 via mobile

We only needed 1 night's accommodation in Raglan & that was hard to find at height of season in B&B's or bachs. However the Sunset Motel was perfect for our needs. The King studio had good little kitchenette too. The owner was really friendly & helpful.
Being so central was great too.

Rooms are large, just a bit 80's in their look and decor. With a refurb this place could be fantastic.
Suggest you stay in a unit running along the Bankart side or in the inner court yard. We stayed in the block runs parallel to Wainui Road and had a bar (or party) raging until 4am. Plus beds are quite soft and cheap. Not the most restful sleep.

We made reservations at this motel and were provided with lodging in a holiday home up the road with an ocean view instead of at the motel. This was great - fully equipped kitchen with a gas griil out on the deck overlooking the sea, a short distance from the town centre and the beaches. Andy, the manager, and his wife were very kind and helpful. We wish we coulsd have stayed much longer.

Room Tip: Check to see if this house is available - it is a great place.

Very similar to 'thejourneysofar' comments..... We stayed here for one night only after finding ourselves in Raglan on our 'random' road-trip and the motel was fine for what we needed. The rooms are large with simple cooking facilities but sadly the bed was uncomfortable and the towels had holes in them. However you can't beat the location - just around the corner from Raglan's high street so it is very convenient. The room did have a very noisy fridge which we also turned off. We also didn't appreciate a truck driving into the forecourt at 7am and idling for nearly an hour!!! Still it got us out of bed and on our way to the next beautiful location further south. On a good note - we got to eat the most superb meal at the Raglan Harbour View Hotel!

Had a lovely peaceful couple of days in Raglan as the kick-off to an extended holiday break. The weather was spectacular and the town was laid back and easy going. Purchased a deal which included a continental breakfast and free internet access. There was a spa pool available for guests. We took advantage of having a lovely warm soak both nights. The negative about this motel was that the shower is a small corner unit. Which means you continually hit the walls and drop the soap. Couldn't see any logical reason for needing a small shower unit as there was ample room in the bathroom. On saying that will probably return as the location is unbeatable. Walking distance to town, water's edge. Basically park your car on arrival and explore the township on foot. Then visit the glorious beach out of town by car. Spectacular beach!

We spent one night here. It was noisy as a 50th birthday was being celebrated. The party finished at 10 pm but there was still a lot of noise till the early hours of the morning. It was a good location and handy to town but it was overpriced for what was provided,

We stayed here for one night only and found the motel to be fine for what we needed - a road trip over-nighter. The rooms are large and comfortable however are somewhat dated with decor but you can't beat the location - just around the corner from Raglan's high street so it is very convenient. The room we stayed in had some simple cooking facilities however with the choices of eateries so close this doesn't seem necessary. The fridge was quite noisy so we turned it off making it pointless. All conveniences were provided (the iron was appreciated!) - it's an ok motel. It could do with a make over but the location can't be beat. We recommend the pizza joint and bakery!
