Raglan can offer some very patchy accommodation, but Four Elements is just superb. Wonderful views, well-presented rooms great facilities and an unobtrusive host. I travel a lot for my job as a writer and I have to say it was great value. Worth spending the extra for the best room.

My wife and I spent a wonderful few days up here. Fabulous views, sumptuous accommodation, delightful host and a perfect place to unwind and recharge the batteries. We have stayed in hotels across NZ and around the world, and this is as good as it gets. No crowds, no distractions (unless you want to visit Raglan) and treated like royalty.... More

We loved it! Beautiful surroundings, very comfortable beds and very friendly hosts. The perfect place to unwind as it is situated outside of Raglan Township and therefore very quiet. We arrived on short notice and yet within an hour we could move into a clean house. The terrace is a great place to have a BBQ which can be topped... More

This house was incredible! Great open/shared spaces, view off of the balcony stunning and everything seemed brand new. The beds were super comfy! The only downfall is I wouldn't call this a true B&B as the breakfast was limited to cold cereal (only 2 selections) and toast. Other than that, loved it!

What a beautiful location - a peaceful getaway in the green hills above Raglan. Four Elements has all the comforts of home (comfy bed, solid wi-fi, kitchen) as well as extras like a giant closet, hot tub and towel warmer (in the Master Suite). Our hosts were friendly and provided great hospitality - yet the level of privacy and ability... More

We stayed at Four Elements five nights this Christmas. As we are five in our family we rented the whole House – which was absolutely perfect. Large with 3 nicely decorated bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. Big kitchen with dining table, sofas and TV and a big room with sofas and a wonderful view. We always eat on a Restaurant when... More

My husband booked this accommodation and I didn't really know what to expect. I was more than pleasantly surprised. This is a lovely place with amazing views and we were lucky enough to get the Master suite. We enjoyed meeting the other guests and overall the experience was perfect. You are in charge of making your own breakfast but we... More

Me and my husband stayed overnight during spring 2011. We both loved it. Although we only booked a room we ended up having the whole house for ourselves. The views are spectacular. Plus we went for a relaxing weekend hence the fact that the place is located slightly away from the town was a bonus. The views are spectacular. We... More

This house has stunning views although quite a long way out from Raglan.The house would benefit greatly from a good clean as furnishings look very 'tired', the general impression both indoors & outdoors is shabby & the furniture is very uncomfortable,the "room with a view" could be lovely if the seating were better & you would maybe feel like sitting...
