“Friendly staff at Palm Beach Motel”
Reviewed December 10, 2013

I stay here for business purposes a few times a year. The staff are friendly, and the rooms are clean. The motel is on the harbour edge, so has a pretty and peaceful outlook. It's about a 20 minute walk back across the bridge to Raglan township.

That was my first impression. Overall the decor and facilities are a little dated but so clean we forgave them. Very quiet and restful, lovely outlook and the hosts friendly and helpful. The motel is located a little out of the town but this is an advantage as thigs can get a bit noisy on weekends. Its also on the road out to the surf beaches and handy to the Raglan Bar (near the harbour). All in all I would stay there again when I go to Raglan. Also at the top of the hotel and across the road is a fantastic pizeria - it had just opened when we were in Raglan and the pizza we got was yummy.

Room Tip: All much the same I would think - we had a unit with the separate bathroom

Good location for summer stays with good water access but not the same for the rest of the year. While clean this motel is still in the 70's and definitely not value for money at $120 per night in the off season.

Don and Sheryl are the most wonderful hosts. We have been staying with them any chance possible for 13 years. Whether it is for the surf, fishing, shopping or a casual evening out, Palm Beach Motel is a place that will draw you back to "The Raglan Vibe." Never have we met a couple that has become family so quickly. No matter what is ever on offer we will always stay at the motel just over the bridge.

Room Tip: The room with the deck on the bay

What a wonderful secluded place is Raglan NZ.. Just an hour and a bit awy from Auckland, and yet a million miles away from anything that resembles the 21st century. Theree ae wondful quaint shops.. Great Pub food and a stroll down the road some of the nicest surfing beaches anywhere!
Well worth the side trip.. go there !!!

Room Tip: We looked around and found the Pub at $80 a nit for a twin room was quite fair.. Ok the bathrooms ar...

It was lovely to stay somewhere where you could sit outside with a lovely view of water and a large grassy area. There was a separate bedroom and decent kitchen space. Would have liked to have stayed longer and made use of kayaks on offer.
