This former rest-home now lovingly converted to a motel-like B&B is a good spot to perch above the Raglan estuary. The view however, is not from the rooms but from the brekkie room and the adjoining porch. Breakfast is help-yourself to fruit, cereal, toast, fresh croissants + tea or coffee. Nothing cooked. Amanda our owner/ host was lovely and even...

Excellent location. Ocean View Raglan Bed & Breakfast is on top of a hill overlooking Raglan; close to both town and beach. Incredible hosts; they are knowledgeable of the area and friendly. The rooms are comfortable and clean.

The owners are very nice and helpful. There is a authentic family feel to this place. The shared showers are clean, the rooms are big and comfy, the breakfast is good and the location is walking distance from downtown. I'd stay there again.

Stayed one night at the Ocean View. Beds were very comfortable, rooms were clean and the breakfast in the morning was a nice touch. The hosts were friendly and made us feel very welcome. A quick 5 minutes walk from town too. Would definitely stay again.

My wife and I stayed one night on our 25th Anniversary trip. Amanda was a wonderful host. The room and bed were great and the breakfast was delicious. We enjoyed walking around the quaint town and watching the surfers. Highly recommend. Thanks.

A one night stand in Raglan to check out the waves was just delightful. The corrugations to the horizon weren't quite as evident as they were in Endless Summer, but on a good day this must be an amazing ride. Great little overnight stop, comfortable room, excellent breakfast and lovely host. Also a stroll down to the pub for the...

Stayed in a twin share room, which was a surprise since this is primarily a B&B. Nice and clean facilities, the continental breakfast was wonderful as well. A short 5 minute walk into town, this place is a great location for your stay in Raglan.

My grown-up daughter and I have just returned from North Island, NZ and of the many places we visited, Raglan was one of our favourites and we highly recommend Ocean View for its wonderful location and amenities. Amanda & Adam were both very helpful, friendly and kind and we thoroughly enjoyed our time there.

If you are mainly interested in surfing at the famous Raglan beaches and you are looking for a affordable and clean accomodation this is a good place for you, because you will spend there only the nights. If your are looking for a good breakfast, helpful, interested hosts and nice furniture this is definitely not the right place for you.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Ocean View is Raglan’s newest Bed & Breakfast. It’s had great reviews over summer with people commenting on the size of our croissants and how powerful the new showers are! Laid back Raglan is an unspoilt town in the region of Waikato. Offering world class surf beaches and awesome scenery. Just a short 5–10 minute walk into town where you will find quirky shops, excellent restaurants and cafes. ... more   less
