We arrived early following our flight from North America and were graciously welcomed by the owner with a pot of tea. Our room cleaning was expedited and we were able to settle in before noon. Our entire experience at Braemar was consistent with the initial welcoming, flexible attitude. The owner saved this historic building from a likely wrecking ball fate....

Delightful hosts and comfortable rooms. This small B&B was perfect for our visit to Auckland. The hosts, John and Mel, went far out of their way to make sure everything was perfect for us. Wonderful warm place.

Braemar, originally built as a family home, worked so well again when you came with you little family. Your boys were so well behaved. It was a joy so see how much you enjoyed being together here with us. Please come again.

I stayed at Braemar in December 2016, and again in January 2017. The hosts, John and Mel, could not have been nicer. The house is "one of a kind," over 100 years old, and has been restored in period style. The claw foot bathtubs, original mantles, and arched doorways make this place unique. We felt so at home after our...

Fantastic B&B! Very special old House where one of the most classic NZ movie scene of "goodbye pork pie" was filmed. Charming host and hostess, you can ask them for anything they will help you or provide if possible. You can feel as at home if you wish. We were treated with a bottle of wine for our Christmas!

Decided to stay here instead of the usual major chain hotels. A home away from home with fantastic hosts. Very conveniently located in a very peaceful setting. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and certainly recommend Braemar.

Beautiful place - historical, interesting decor, clean. Our room had a gorgeous iron bath tub equipped with epson salts!

Insert boiler plate review here for a world class, old-world charm, lovely B&B. Every bit of a 5 star deserving property. Where I'd like to call attention is to the hosts John and Mel. They go above and beyond to treat their guests like royalty. I had a nasty battle with some food poisoning (picked up in Sydney) and John...

We really felt for you when you arrived not feeling the best. I'm so glad the lemon and ginger tea helped to settle your digestion and the old standby "hearty chicken soup" got you up and about in no time. It was lovely having your little family here. Thank you for your appreciation of what we have. Bon voyage.

We've been to stay at John's a couple of times now and every time we think of accommodation in Auckland, the Braemar is top of our list. Dog friendly. Yes, that's right. Dog friendly and in the CBD. And an exquisitely restored period property. If you want 5 Star soul-less could-be-anywhere accommodation, don't waste John's time on the phone. If...

The Victorian Room is amazing, topped only by the hospitality and warm welcome from John & Mel. I loved the comfortable bed, the authentic decor and the great sleep in the surprisingly quiet room even though it is in the middle of the central city. I also love the fact that the place is animal friendly - if you want...
