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

Braemar House was our first stop when coming to New Zealand. A trip we undertook after about 30 years waiting for an occasion to get there. John Sweetman's place was perfect to start. Our room in the skilfully renovated house took us back to a different century but then with wifi. Breakfast in the marvelously decorated breakfast room was equally... More

We we returned our bags were in our room ready for us. Our first night was in the Victorian room and then we moved to the Batten... More

Out of all Bnb's visited, Braemar on parliament was the one that was most memorable. The rooms were very homely and comfortable, we were suprised it was a very peaceful and quiet place to stay, being perfectly located in the city centre. Over everything else, John was an outstanding host who looked after us throughout the experience from driving my... More

What a great place to stay in Auckland! This is a beautiful, charming home with a wonderful host, John. The breakfasts were sumptuous and delicious. From the moment we arrived to the moment we departed, John took such good care of us -- even giving us a personal tour of the city and driving us to the port on the... More

Of all the nice places we stayed on our road trip, this was our favourite. We had lots of fun with John, who gave us really useful tips on where to go, eat etc etc. We look forward to seeing his lovely home on screen.
