Just stayed one night coming from Turangi on the way to Wellington. Good parking outside the room. Room was nice, clean and a decent size. The kitchen was great. Internet was free in the form of vouchers which was handy. There's a limit as with a lot of the golden chain motels but handy that it was free as some... More

We had a lovely overnight stay at the Braemar Motor Lodge. The service was great and the room was cosy and well set out, it was warm and clean. We would definitely stay there again. And the spa bath was divine. We were given a room away from the road

We stayed the night here in the family unit. The rooms were very nice and clean and the beds were very comfortable. The host was really nice and super friendly. The room was very well equipped and the motel is close to all amenities. Thanks for a great stay.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Braemar Motor Lodge in Palmerston North. Our room was nice and cosy. There was a spa bath which we also enjoyed. Some of the décor is a little worn but ok. I would have given the Braemar an extra star if the main bed had been more comfortable, it was really the only... More

Thank you for your lovely review of Braemar Motor Lodge. We are pleased that you found your room nice and cosy and less traffic noise than other Palmerston North motels. We were sorry you found the bed a bit uncomfortable. It is really difficult to get a bed that suits every guest, but we will certainly take on board what... More

This was a great place to stay!! Very very friendly helpful staff too. We found the room to be very clean and comfortable, although I would say the pillows are too firm. We had a large triangular spa bath in our room which was nice at the end of a long day! Also, we had spacious courtyard with lovely garden... More

I arrived at the motel during a storm and the lovely lady who checked me in ran to my car with an umbrella so I didn't get wet, and then did this again when taking me to my unit - very sweet of her! The unit was nice and clean and I will happily stay there again. Very reasonable priced... More

The Braemar Motor Lodge is a very well managed, clean and tidy place to spend a few nights. It is within walking distance of the town centre (20 minutes). Our hostess for five nights (Vicki) made us really welcome and no request was too much trouble.
