Recently we stayed for 2 nights. The Service was outstanding, with Owner Vicky ensuring that our every request was provided with prompt efficiency. From welcome, room mood lighting and heating on to remove chill, to very friendly ongoing service throughout our stay. The Executive room with kingsize bed, separate toilet shower and spar bath is well presented, and the ambiance... More

Good location, very quiet, close to the airport but also not too far from the city center, we stayed here for one night, it was a decent size room with a queen bed and a spa bath, the room was clean and the reception lady was very friendly , I would recommend this motel to all.

We always stay at the Braemar when we visit Palmerston North, and have always loved the accommodation offered. This time, a very polite Asian lady greeted us on arrival, and told us the motel had been sold. No worries, until I saw her produce a little jug of milk instead of the usual 1/2 litre container we were used to.... More

Vicky one of the owners gave fantastic service while we stayed at Braemar Motor Lodge. We travelled with golden chain motel vouchers and didn't have time to make a booking before we arrived. Therefore we arrived unannounced hoping for a bed. Vicky was more than obliging, providing us with a great room, directions to some great food at the local... More

We have recently travelled to Palmerston North and needed accommodation at short notice when the city was full. We have stayed in the city many times before. This motel was excellent. It was clean, comfortable and nothing was too much effort for the lovely owners to do for us. Well done Braemar! We'll be back.
