This was our first time to Raglan and we feel without doubt we chose the best place to stay ! The units are spacious, super clean and tidy and in the best location possible. We loved our outside patio area which soaks up all the late afternoon sun and even saw a sunset from our bedroom upstairs. Dominique is an...

Lucky enough to get last minute booking. Fantastic welcome. Apartment was perfect situated virtually on the beach with a view to die for over the bay. It was very well furnished and clean. The bedroom upstairs had a king size bed and stunning views. If you are as lucky as we were you will see the Orcas come in to...

Excellent location, scrupulously clean, nice beds, friendly. Barbecue on site which is nice. Right on the main street but at the end near the water. View from upstairs bedroom is lovely. My only observation, and it's minor is that the bathroom is on the upper level.

Stayed 3 nights and really enjoyed our time. Nice friendly check in. Units are a good size and our unit had a good view of the water. Nice little courtyard to sit in and unit had everything you need. Units are served every 2nd day but that's no worries. Each unit has stairs to bedroom and bathroom. Only negative would...

This excellent "motel" is in a great location new the water's edge as well as the restaurants, etc. in this very pleasant town. The suites are large over two floors, well equipped, clean and nicely decorated.

Great location and very good accommodations. Our two night stay over Christmas was comfortable and stores, cafes are within walking distance. The password for the wifi was incorrect on the info sheet but, fortunately, the library a block away had free wifi and had places to sit outside since it was closed for the holiday. The Bow Street Studios are...

The Bow Street Studio's are well positioned with the water, cafe's and shops all within a few minutes walk. Each unit is tasteful with plenty of room and an indoor outdoor flow through large doors to the patio makes it even bigger. Overall excellent however a couple of minor things need attention - our shower was inconsistent, going from hot...

We booked Bow Street Studios quite late, as our previous plans fell through, so we were very lucky to find a vacancy here. The units were beautiful and well equipped with plenty of room, especially upstairs [bedroom and en-suite]. The staff led by Dominique were really helpful and friendly. And on top of this, the location was very handy to...

For the prices paid for these apartments, $490 for 2 nights, it is a shame that the booking system is antiquated and inefficient. I placed a booking through their website yesterday and provided my credit card details. I expected to get an email confirmation fairly quickly, but this did not happen so 3 hours later I sent an email to...

The units were beautiful and well equipped with plenty of room, especially upstairs. I was really impressed with the decor which included a variety of exotic and unusual pieces. The staff were really helpful and friendly. And on top of this the location was very handy to shops, eating places and the waterfront. Highly recommended.
