Location

Some say…it’s all about the Water! Surfers from around the world have been making the pilgrimage to Raglan for decades since its waves first appeared in the Endless Summer Surfing movie premiered in 1966. Our front desk crew can arrange surfboard and wetsuit rentals for you and or surfing lessons with the Raglan Surfing School who offer free pick to ups and drop to offs from the Motel.

We also offer Kayaking and Stand Up Paddleboard rentals. Guided tours launch directly from our front lawn! Bring your boat along and enjoy some great west coast fishing as we have plenty of onsite parking with close access to Raglan boat ramps.

Looking for a little romance??... Why not get us to book you an evening on a Sunset Harbour Cruise with the crew of the Wahine Moe from Raglan Boat Charters. We are also friends with Gareth who is a great operator in Raglan offering rock climbing and canyoning with his company Raglan Rock.

Others say …it’s all about the Food”!! Try one of Raglan’s many critically acclaimed cafes and restaurants or get some fresh fish at the Raglan Fresh Fish Market at the Raglan Fisherman’s Wharf. Raglan Roast Coffee is a must. We recommend the Herbal Dispensary for their specialty gourmet and organic food selections and for their wide range of natural health products, herbal medicine, and homeopathic remedies.

We are located on NZ's North Islands wild west coast known for its consistent year round waves. We are 2 hours drive south of Auckland Central city and Airport.
