I stayed for 4 nights at Braemar in Auckland. I arrived early which was no problem for Sue, the owner. She offered me tea and cake. She was helpful with lots of information and suggestions for things to do in Auckland.
I stayed in the Victoria room which was large and included an open bathroom area which was unique. The claw foot tub was huge! I liked that as you walked in the halls, lights automatically turned on so you could find your way when coming into the B&B in the evenings. The B&B location was very quiet for being in the city. I didn't hear the usual city noise. The B&B is located right next to Auckland University. It is within walking distance to Queen's Street, Sky Tower, the Auckland Museum., and the Harbour. There are some hills so be prepared to do some walking up and down. There is a grocery store within walking distance where I picked up some bottled water and some fresh fruit for my room. Breakfast included fresh fruit, juice, yogurt, toast and any hot dishes requested such as eggs. Also each evening guest are welcome to join Sue and her husband in the t.v. room for a glass of wine. You also have access to a computer to check email or surf the web.
I would stay here again the next time I visit Auckland.
