Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This was my second stay at this Motel, which I understand changed ownership November last year. It is very clean and comfortable with a large center court and BBQ area. Reception was closed when I arrived just after 2 pm and I had to wait 5 minutes before the lady arrived. She was very nice and appeared to be on her own and probably doing other things at the time. It is situated close to the town and easy walking distance. The room was frightfully cold on arrival and I would have thought the heating would have been put on for my arrival. I was in room 16 and the sliding shower door was extremely hard to shift. Older people would experience some difficulty with it. If this motel offers Sky television, then to remote control for the TV does not acknowledge the fact. At $175 per

We stayed for one night in February, the motel was in a great location, easy walking distance to the Main Street with lots of cool shops and eating and drinking options. The motel itself was nothing fancy but it did the job for one night. It was very hot the night we stayed and there was no aircon or fan so it was quite hot in the room. A pedestal fan would have been very welcome! Very clean and bathroom was good! We would stay again, you can't beat the convenience of the location.

This is a relaxed artsy town, with a welcoming feel to it. The motel is no great shakes, although we did enjoy the nice updated shower in the room, the complimentary laundry services and the nice courtyard to relax in. This motel does not have A/C, and does have two floors with only stairs to the second floor. It is close to the main drag as well without being loud.

A big group of us stayed in the Raglan sunset motel for a friends hens weekend. Jo and all the staff were welcoming, helpful and made our stay and experience the best it could possibly be. Amazing facilities, very clean and tidy, function room had everything we needed. Great location in central Raglan and nothing was an issue or problem. I would stay here again in a heartbeat! Highly reccomend!

Raglan is tiny and this place is two minutes from the heart of the village so a perfect place to stay. Lovely rooms with excellent in-room facilities and there's a laundry on site. Immaculately clean. One tiny gripe was no hairdryer but not a big deal.

This must be the most spacious motel unit ever! Even the bathroom was big. The bathroom and kitchen were well stocked and very clean and fresh. The bed was great, and there was plenty of opportunity for sitting outside either at our own little table and chairs, or at tables in the big communal courtyard. Fortunately all was quiet and peaceful when we were there. I was silly enough to leave my toilet bag behind by mistake, and less than a couple of hours after we left we got a call from Jo in the office to say that the cleaners had found it and she was holding it for us. Because we were by then miles away she offered to post it to us - it arrived today and I am just so grateful to the Motel for doing that for us. We enjoyed our stay here very much.

Very spacious room which was spotless, contained 2 beds and still left ample room for a couple. The bathroom was large and contained a powerful shower which was perfect after a day in the sun. The motel has an outside social area which was very popular but considerate noise wise and plenty of parking is available out front. Located close to the town centre but is nice and quiet as it's just around the corner from it all.
