Step back, to a time before the world went mad, in the central city's only scheduled heritage home you can sleep in. Built in 1901 of solid brick and ancient Kauri woodwork, Braemar has been lovingly restored with up to the minute technology embedded throughout. It's turn of the century style, clear grain joinery, furnishings with yesterday's looks and old style bathrooms with classic clawfoot bath tubs.
Four guest rooms to choose from, two of which have their own bathrooms. Batten Suite has ensuite bathroom and private lounge, Victorian Room has its facilities in the corner of this large room behind an antique screen, and the other two guest rooms; Norman and Jenny share with each-other the house's big original bathroom just along the hallway. If you'd like to have the place to yourselves book the whole house for 5 beds, 3 bathrooms and three lounges. All the guest bedrooms are on the top floor.
At street level two large lounges and a deck for entertaining and relaxing and with a guest kitchen to make drinks and snacks. Our room rates include free; welcome drinks, valet car parking, full breakfasts, high speed WiFi and run of the house lounges.
The house has an interesting history that includes famous pioneer aviatrix Jean Batten and the classic New Zealand movie Goodbye Pork Pie. Auckland is my hometown and I love to share my local knowledge. In our tree lined street of heritage buildings we are surrounded by the University of Auckland campus, Auckland High Court and are atop the headland above Queen Street and the Waitemata Harbour.
All of the many attractions of New Zealand's largest city are an easy walk or cab ride away. We are spacious enough to be private yet small enough to really care for our guests.
See you soon and bring your friends.
