Braemar House YHA Hostel Reviews


This is a beautiful 112 year old Hostel incorporating a Bed and Breakfast which is situated in a different area of the complex.
The dorms and the separate bedrooms come with full range of sheets and Duvets and are all centrally heated. most are share bathrooms, but we do have a mixed dorm or family room sleeping six with own ensuite. The hostel features a wonderful kitchen with full range of facilities, perfect for those who have a flair for cooking. Bar b Que facilities are available free as are outside sitting arrangements in the relaxing garden. There are television and internet/wifi facilities available. The amosphere is very friendly and homely as can be seen from the great comments in the Guest book.

We are situated close to all the tourist attractions and the paddle steamer passes daily in front of the house. There is a weekday free pick up from the from door of the Hostel for the famous Rural mail run and Whanganui River Tours, which take visitors deep into the New Zealand River countryside and visits all the farms, Marae etc, in the region.

We only ask guests arriving back late at night to make as little noise as possible after 11p.m. as we sell relaxation, rest and a good nights sleep. Circumstances permitting upon request, we meet buses,planes, and will meet the train on a special request (37k away)

Come stay with us you will throughly enjoy yourself!.
