Covid vaccination passport policy
Our check in is currently 1-7pm. If you require a late check in then we will need you to email your vaccine passport before 3pm on the day of arrival so we can then organize a late check in for you.
If this is not sent, a late check in will not be possible 🙁
Our Commitment 🙂
The health and safety of our guests and staff is very important to us here at Raglan Backpackers & WaterFront Lodge.
With the issues and experiences during the recent outbreak of Covid – 19 in our community we decided to do a risk assessment on our business for our guests and staff’s safety.
The conclusion of this assessment is that we will be asking guests to produce a digital vaccine passport at check in for guests who are 12 years+. Guests who do not have a digital vaccine passport will not be allowed to stay with us at this time.
This will come into place on December 20th 2021.
Our team will be vaccinated.
Guests who have already booked and wish to cancel can do so for free within 48 hours of check in. Guests who have booked and do not cancel within this timeframe, or turn up without a digital vaccine passport will not be able to stay and will not be refunded.
If you have booked with an agent like Booking.com, Hostel World, Air bnb and wish to cancel, please request it through them so that we can process it.
We have a strict no visitors rule onsite, which means paying guests will not be allowed to have visitors on site at any time.
If you have any question regarding this please feel free to email us at
Please all stay safe whatever your stance on this issue and we hope to have you stay soon!
