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.

Wow! I went down to Palmerston North for Business, stating in my email I would be arriving late driving from Auckland. Firstly, I got a response email to wish me a safe drive and that it wouldn't be a problem. When I arrived, I was told that after a long drive I must be tired so I had been upgraded... More

Dear Kirsty, Thank you for your kind words both in your email and Tripadvisor. It is very rewarding as a host to know you had a good stay with us. My husband and I didn't have any experience in motel management before we took over Braemar Motor Lodge, but we do have a philosophy of running this business: we treat... More

We arrived on the off chance that a unit was available and scored the last one! We ended up with a nice quiet room at the rear of the complex and had a much needed good nights sleep. The unit was much better than basic and had everything we needed including ‘real’ milk! If you are looking for a nice... More
