“Great location”
Reviewed January 9, 2014

This is a fairly standard motel but with a great location just behind the main road at Raglan so you can walk everywhere. There is a pleasant central courtyard with a barbeque, the spa pool, and wifi available (they give you vouchers but were happy to give more as we needed them).

The beds were comfortable, the laundry was free to use, and the proprietors were friendly.

We stayed for 2 nights here. Booked a basic studio for me, hubby and 3y/o daughter. Very clean, well presented, a few meters away from shops and restaurants/café/bar. There are no air conditioner so it is quite muggy early parts of the evening but Brent lent us a fan which solved the problem. At the end of the day, do not expect to come back to a fully-made bed cause they don't do it. They change bed linens after your 3rd night. During our stay, there were always fresh towels, toilet/shower cleaned, tea/coffee/microwave area all tidied up. Barbecue facilities available in the patio. Spa pool also available until 2130hrs. All in all, we highly recommend Raglan Sunset Motel and we would gladly come back again for a visit!

Room Tip: Brent is only an email away and he replies instantly. If you are sensitive to noisy footsteps, bette...

We were very happy staying in one of the Sunset Motel studio units - especially with the location which was just off the main road, so easy walking distance to shops and cafes. We stayed 3 nights over new years, so there was a bit of noise from other rooms, but it's to be expected for that time of year.

The Cyclery is just across the road so we rented some bikes and went for a ride down to the wharf and around town.

The spa was lovely, especially after a day at the beach. The central courtyard also has a bbq and tables.

Other reviews have mentioned the lack of kitchen sink in the studio units - but there is a daily service for used utensils, plates, etc.

Great service, and the free wifi is a bonus :o)

We stayed 2 nights in the Tahi Suite after upgrading from a voucher we'd bought online for a standard room. Check in was swift and painless with the motelier showing us to our room, showing us the direction of the spa and offering free wifi. It was a lovely room on first impressions, spacious and nicely decorated. Though we struck some little things like lipstick on the teacups, only one fork in the draw and no water glasses. There was no spare toilet roll and the wifi didn't actually reach our room. And a small panic ensued after late one night we got locked out of our bathroom for some time as we shut the door and it locked itself. But the motel is wonderfully close to town, we walked everywhere despite the cyclonic weather and we enjoyed the little stores. If you get a chance to grab a taco from the taco truck in town, I cannot recommend it enough! And the spa was delightful on the rainy Saturday afternoon. So overall, we had a nice weekend and I'm sure they'll be rectifying the the hiccups we experienced after we let them know.

We loved our first visit to Raglan and the Sunset Motel was a perfect base. The room had everything we needed: basic cooking facilities and an outside patio to sip our sundowners. There is a large outside BBQ area and a spa pool. The water's edge and town restaurants and bars are all within a very short stroll. We especially recommend The Shack, a minute's walk from the motel.

This hotel is located right in the heart of town, walking distance to shops, restaurants etc. It has a central courtyard with picnic tables, bar b que and covered pergola.
We chose a studio room as we were only staying overnight. The room was on the second floor and is accessed via a small corridor into a very large room containing a KING size bed, table and chairs, soft chairs for viewing flat screen TV.
Self catering facilities are provided for with the provision of microwave, jug, toaster, electric frying pan, good selection of cutlery and crockery together with tea and coffee, The room also provides a small frig and free wifi,
Bed and pillows were very comfortable and I think this would be one of the nicest motels in Raglan.
I would definately stay here again if I was coming back this way. It was very quiet but we were in low season

Room Tip: The studio room has cooking facilities but you have to clean up in the bathroom For a small extra ch...
