Sublime. We were on North Island traveling as a family of 3 with our pet dog, struggling as usual to find anywhere to stay that was dog friendly. My wife found John's website, we couldn't believe our eyes, phoned and confirmed our dog was acceptable and off set from Thames into city central Auckland.....and when we say central, that's exactly...

The Braemar B&B is in an old house built in 1901. Well maintained with a wealth of original features. Situated about 1 Km from Queen Street (Auckland's main street) and as such central for the theatre, shops and the CBD. I believe there are only 4 letting rooms, some en-suite, some not but with a very nearby bathroom. Very much... More

Whenever you walk through the door John says "welcome home, make yourselves comfortable." That sums up our stay in this lovely old house, our second after a gap of three years and hopefully we will be back before another three. The location is perfect for spending a couple of days in Auckland before venturing further afield.

If your looking for something different and want to be well looked after then this is the place to stay. John and his wife were exceptional hosts, they welcomed us at the door and gave us a bottle of bubbles to celebrate our anniversary. They offered us a lift into town but we walked as it was a nice day... More

Very nice people, make you feel right at home. Place is lovely and would definitely recommend if you like old style homes. Only 6 minute drive to queen street. Allows dogs which is a big plus as it's very hard to find places that do.

The first thing to say is that John is a truly exceptional host and goes out of his way to be helpful and to make guests welcome. The second thing to say is that Braemar is quite an idiosyncratic place to stay and is probably not for those who are looking for a standard hotel-type experience. We had the very... More

The location is great and most importantly, John, the owner and host of Braemar, surpasses all expectations. He is welcoming, very professional and full of knowledge of the history of this great land. We enjoyed our 4-night stay - the room, the great breakfast and warm atmosphere. Thank you John!

What a great spot and welcome it's like visiting old friends. Made to feel like at home and great to see someone keeping such a beautiful old building in good care right in city. Lots of advice on what is on, where to eat and where to go and explore. Great experience will definitely visit again.

I booked with Braemar as I was looking for something a little bit different. When I called to book in the housekeeper answered(sorry I forgot your name please forgive me) her voice was so warm and cheerful which was a refreshing surprise compared to booking in with a hotel. We turned up at 11pm at night and John came straight... More

This was our first stay in New Zealand and were thrilled with how well we were taken care of. We arrived early morning, way before our rooms were ready but were greeted warmly and were given a light breakfast. John is quite proud of this beautiful old house and rightfully so. We were comfortable and loved the morning conversation around... More
