An excellent YHa Hostel, well run and spotlessly clean, if we are in the area next time, will try out the glamorous looking B&B side of the house. We only stayed two days and wished we had time for longer

Stayed 1 night in characterful historical house close to the Wanganui river. Rooms cosy, with own basin, & bathrooms across the hall. Robes supplied if required but the night we stayed we were the only b&b guests, so had a choice of showers, toilets or bath to use. Lounge room with TV to relax in the evening. Breakfast was made...

The good thing about the place was the lounge which gave me quite a homely feeling, but the rooms didn't have doors and there was strange energy coming from this place. Bed was allgood, kitchen facilities alright, but the room was really average considering the price. I don't know about the B&B, it's probably better, but at the hostel one... More

Interesting comments from you Jarnold.. The irony of your remarks was that several people staying in the private rooms would not come into the kitchen whilst you and your two friends were there, we in fact gave them private access to the B&B kitchens, because they said they found you rather strange to be around? Best wishes anyway and we... More

Cool, clean, nice but not full. I was surclassed so it was a good experience. But even if not, I think all rooms are ok. Free internet et very good connexion everywhere. Nice meetings, and the garden is beautiful

With a change in schedule we showed up a day early and in the evening. Clive (owner) was obviously surprised at guests standing at his front door but was more than accommodating. He promptly provided us a room (luckily one was available since subsequent nights were sold out). Clive also provided a wonderful breakfast the next morning, along with local... More

We had a lovely weekend at Braemar. I stayed in a cosy, comfortable room with access to a pretty covered verandah. I enjoyed the excellent continental breakfast and lovely freshly made coffee each morning. Our host was very obliging making sure we were warm, well informed and looked after. There were 4 bathroom options servicing the 8 rooms, which worked... More

I stayed here for two nights (in the YHA hostel side) and I was very comfortable and well looked after the whole time. They have excellent facilities and the place is kept nice and warm, which was a treat during winter. The location was ideal because it was close to the waterfront cycle path which led straight into town. I'd... More

We spent one night here whilst passing through Wanganui and would happily stay there again if we were in the area again. We stayed in the B&B - it was full of character befitting the property and its history, which the owner told us all about over a fantastic breakfast.
