We stayed here for 2 nights after our cruise. John and his wife are so welcoming and Mei cooked us a wonderful breakfast every morning. We stayed in their best suite with the private bathroom and living room. There was a bottle of good New Zealand Sauvingon Blanc wating for us in our mini-fridge - thank you John. The room...

My wife and I started out New Zealand and Australia trip in Auckland and stayed at the Braemar. John welcomed us with open arms and reached out to us prior to our arrival with advise and recommendations. He's always available and was a fountain of knowledge for us on things to see and do, and what to look for as...

I booked to stay in March this year. Hosts were very good at getting in contact and seeing what we needed prior to the visit. I had to cancel due to changes in travel, still very impressed with service.

The Braemar is in an older home within easy walking distance of downtown Auckland. The proprietors, John and Mel were charming and very helpful. There was a choice of beer or wine in the afternoon and we enjoyed the full Kiwi breakfast. Try this place!

This B&B is right around the corner of some of the best hotels in Auckland and tucked away on a quiet side street. The room was very comfortable, breakfast was great, and the hosts were very accommodating, friendly, and helpful.

We encourage our guests to interact with us and the other people in the house. Glad to see that you, travelling by your self, really enjoyed the traveler's tales and friendly conversation around the breakfast table and over a drink in the late afternoon. Staying here for several days you really got to feel at home. We're right in town...

We arrived early following our flight from North America and were graciously welcomed by the owner with a pot of tea. Our room cleaning was expedited and we were able to settle in before noon. Our entire experience at Braemar was consistent with the initial welcoming, flexible attitude. The owner saved this historic building from a likely wrecking ball fate....

Glad you enjoyed what we have here. The pirate radio stories followed the 50th Anniversary celebrations of Radio Hauraki's first broadcasts from a ship in Auckland's Hauraki Gulf - pirate broadcasts that broke the government's radio monopoly. I had the privilege in the 70's and 80's of being a DJ with some of those pioneers. We had so much fun....

Delightful hosts and comfortable rooms. This small B&B was perfect for our visit to Auckland. The hosts, John and Mel, went far out of their way to make sure everything was perfect for us. Wonderful warm place.

I stayed at Braemar in December 2016, and again in January 2017. The hosts, John and Mel, could not have been nicer. The house is "one of a kind," over 100 years old, and has been restored in period style. The claw foot bathtubs, original mantles, and arched doorways make this place unique. We felt so at home after our...

Fantastic B&B! Very special old House where one of the most classic NZ movie scene of "goodbye pork pie" was filmed.
