Welcome to 'Olde Worlde Charm'. This restored historic Homestead circa 1895, nestled alongside the Wanganui River, has a homely ambience making your stay restful and enjoyable. The graceful entrance leads to eight comfortable, centrally heated, period-designed bedrooms, guest drawing room and dining room. The shared bathrooms include a full bath, three powerful showers and even a period copper cistern toilet. Laundry facilities, wireless internet and a fully equipped kitchen is available. However, we offer a sumptuous breakfast which will last you all day. The Homestead is set in a beautiful garden, close to the city and tourist attractions. Take a peaceful amble along the Whanganui River walkway - You may even see the paddle steamer, Waimarie, which passes daily in sight of the Homestead. We look forward to you visiting Braemar House.

Enjoy the festive Saturday market on the banks of the river; trips on the Waimarie paddlesteamer - or for the more adventurous - a jetboat tour up the Whanganui River to the Bridge to Nowhere... Shop in the variety of boutique stores or pamper your tastebuds at the coffee shops and eateries scattered about. How about a scenic flight over the city ('hands-on' flying as an option) or a view into Mt Ruapehu's crater? Study the local artwork or glass art produced by our ever-growing community of artists. Whanganui has so much to offer for that breakaway weekend. Come and explore with us!

"Lovely dignified home to stay at. Very welcoming and everything arranged for us, beyond our expectations. Hosts friendly and helpful, loved the two big baths I had. Old big home reminded me of the Scottish home of my youth."
"In over 50 years of experimenting motels and B&B places in NZ, Australia and other countries, our welcome at Braemar House was quite unique. It proved to be outstanding hospitality at a delightful location. Also great value!!"

"Clive and Rob were ideal hosts. They knew when to give us attention and when to leave us alone, to our own devices. The house was immaculately clean and exotically furnished. Full marks!!"
"From the moment I arrived I was made welcome by Clive and the house is a delight. An old hospital, it is beautifully decorated in the style of the period. The room was lovely - comfortable queen bed and french doors opening onto an enclosed balcony. My own handbasin and the shared bath & shower rooms were easy. The toilet with the copper cistern and the chain-pull were absolutely in keeping with the rest of the house !! The bath was long and deep and there was plenty of hot water. Clive was a gracious host and provided a continental breakfast that set me up for my day's work. The garden was lovely with a water feature and the chooks foraging were very cute and added to the rural ambience in the town. Easy access to the mighty Whanganui river and its environs and a lovely stroll into town to meet colleagues for dinner. There was also a quiet guests' lounge with a television that I was happy to relax in front of on my second night and while I didn't require it, there was internet access for guests. A thoroughly enjoyable stay and I would recommend you give it a try."
