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

We have now stayed at this lovely motor hotel several times (in fact, each time we visit Palmerston North). The owners are very hospitable and the units are always clean and well equipped. Highly recommended.

We recently stayed for a night. Owner Vicky was very nice. Our unit was excellent with king bed and a spar bath. One thing they may like to look at in the future is the addition of a fan in the rooms,(for the summer) as with this very hot weather it was quite hot in the room with only the... More

Me and my best friend aged 26 and 27 had a gurly getaway. The room was amazing. Exactly what we wanted to feel special and relaxed. The owner was also amazing tending to us so fast when we requested something and on arrival knew who we were and that my best friend was pregnant. Spa amazing, breakfast amazing, wicked weekend...

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
