Our first visit to Raglan. Great studios. Lots of space and fantastic location. Loved the view from the bedroom. Could do with more pots in kitchen. Very cozy, plenty of hot water and towels. Would definitely stay again

We happened upon Bow St Studios and are very glad we did. The welcome was warm and friendly. The units are spacious and modern with a nice outlook of the estuary. Just at the bottom of the main street of Raglan means it is very easy to wander round shops and find somewhere to eat.

The location of these studios is hard to beat for convenience, situated near the waterfront, where Raglan's main street meets the harbour. As others have mentioned, this does also bring some immersion in local noises, and during our one-night stay this included screeching kids jumping from the jetty into the water during the day and noise from a live band...

Very lucky to secure a booking for one night at short notice. Spacious accomodation, with upstairs bedroom (may be an accessibility issue for some), and outdoor seating area. Views straight to the waterfront. Very clean, very functional and the interior furnishings all as-new. Was a little concerned about possible noise issues, but surprisingly tranquil. Coupled with the location and value...

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...
