Never been in Palmerston North, we had no idea where to stay. We drove past Braemar and thought it looked nice so walked in. We were greeted by Vicki who was very friendly and went out of her way to show us around the facilities. The decision to stay was easy to make. We are glad we did. The room, with a queen bed and a single bed for our son, was very clean, roomy and had all the facilities (minibar, safe, flat screen tv, plunger coffee!) and even a spa bath!

They offer cooked breakfast as well (room service), though we did not take that option.

The complex is very tidy indeed.

Highly recommend! If I have to come back for business, I know where to stay.

We arrived late in from the airport, Vicki and San waited up for us to let us in. The rooms were very clean, tidy and quiet. The Motor Lodge was close to the airport and town center, easy to find and easy to access. The team at Braemar Motor Lodge could not have been more accommodating, providing local information and arranging/providing transport for us around Palmerston North. Couldn't fault the services or facilities and would strongly recommend the lodge to anyone. Thanks team.

Our family of four stayed one night at Braemar while touring the lower North Island. From check in to check out I couldn't fault the place. Great customer service and the units were spotless. We had two adjoining units (1 bdrm and studio) as the 2 bdrm unit was booked. We will definitely stay again when visiting Palmerston North.

My husband and I visit Palmerston North on a regular basis, and we are very glad we discovered the Braemar Motor Lodge early in the piece. We always receive a warm welcome, and a genuine feeling that they are happy to see us again. The rooms are spotless, modern, very comfortable and quiet. I would highly recommend the Braemar for your stay in Palmerston North.

We have no hesitation recommending Braemar Motor Lodge to others. David's excellent customer service when we made our enquiry resulted in us selecting this accommodation over other properties. We were not disappointed at our choice. Good location, close to the airport, hospital and central city. Excellent rooms, modern decoration. Whilst on one of the main thoroughfares, we found the unit quiet with no disturbing traffic noise during the night. Our unit was at the rear of the property so may have been slightly different if in the unit adjacent to the road. We required a 1 bedroom unit with sleeping accommodation in the lounge as our group consisted of a family group of 4 adults. The layout was great as those getting up in the night did not have to walk directly through each other's sleeping area to use the facilities. The little extra touches like the complimentary cheese and crackers on arrival just made this property stand out from the run-of-the mill impersonal properties. We are happy to give it a 10 out of 10.

Room Tip: 1 bedroom units great layout if 4 adults sharing

Having stayed in a few Motor Lodges around NZ when I rang the Braemar my expectations weren't high. I was very pleasantly surprised. David who took my reservation was delightful, he explained the only room they had left was by the road, despite never having had a complaint about noise (its Palmerston North!) to avoid any surprises on arrival; he followed up my booking with an email confirming all details. On arrival the lady at check in was also fantastic showing us to our room and explaining all the services. The rooms were spotless the gardens manicured. And to top it off when my husband’s bike wouldn’t start on check out (he left something on that drained the battery) David came out and helped jump start without asking. This is service that you just don’t find everyday, next time I visit Palmerston North this is where I will be staying.
