Fodor's Expert Review Raglan Sunset Motel

7 Bankart St., Raglan, Waikato, 3225, New Zealand

The location (a five-minute walk from town and from the harbor) and family-friendly facilities are key attractions here. Accommodations range from studio units to a self-contained, two-bedroom/two-bathroom apartment with a kitchen, lounge/dining area, and private courtyard. Shared guest facilities include a large, sheltered courtyard with a barbecue, well-equipped kitchen, and hot tub. New owners have replaced furniture and carpets and given the interiors a paint job, so it has a nice, fresh look. They are also a mine of local information if you need a few pointers.

PROS

  • lovely barbecue area
  • quiet yet close to shops and restaurants
  • free Wi-Fi throughout

CONS

  • grounds not hugely spacious
