      This is simply a most amazing place, beautifully appointed, all in an historic house. Truly given a taste of life in genteel times.. Very cool..Stayed out in the annexe.

      Warm, comfortable room.

      My travelling companion queried the cost of the room as we had thought when booking it was a regular room not a hostel room. This wasn't a huge big deal for us and the accommodation was adequate, but the owner used this as a cue to nut off at my friend for about 15 minutes. He seemed to be having a bad day or something, but it was quite inappropriate. He needs a holiday !

      The picture shown on the website was nothing like the actual room we stayed in. There was nothing wrong with the room it just wasnt as good as the one advertised nor was it in the house itself.

      Staff very helpful and friendly and made me feel very welcome. Room warm and comfortable. I would return to Braemar House if I was looking for accommodaiton in this area on the future.

      I believe there advertising is misleading. We paid $145 for a two night stay for two adults. We thought this was for the Bed and Breakfast accommodation. It turned out we were in the Youth Hostel Association rooms out the back. There were no basic facilities like towels, flannels etc. There were plenty of motels and even the Kingsgate hotel that were offing full service accommodation for $85 per room for two adults per night. We should in hindsight have stayed there.

      Suited my purpose - I was in Wanganui to attend a sporting event and wouldn't be at the venue often. Was perfect for what I was looking for. Clean, tidy, good hostel facilities for the shared kitchen and lounge.

      it was a bed with patched sheets

      This was only an overnight stop and the hotel met our expectations. Shower was very good (although shared). Owner was friendly.

      I think the room was over priced considering the other hotels we had stayed in on our visit. We paid around the same for rooms with on-suite facilities. Location was quite remote from restaurants and shops.

      A very pleasant room and very clean,comfortable bed and bathroom nxt door . Kitchen facilities if needed ,handy to make a cup of tea in morning,also parking on site

      Wanganui was a little short of places to eat in the evening and we had to resort to McDonalds.A quiet place after dark

      Very polite service (nice owner), excellent value for money

      Manager was friendly and informative. Showed me around and explained everything concisely. Kitchen was great and the place was well set out. My room was just what I needed, just a bed with a bathroom nearby, as I was gone all day. Looked after my individual needs like freezing my slicka pads and giving me directions to a location.

      No complaints about Braemar House itself but I had troubles with the booking. See below.

      The architecture of the house itself. Features like the staair way and the old coal range. The old photos in the hall gave some Wanganui history. Having accesss to a verandah was excellent. The rooms has decor appropriate to the age of the house. Tastefully decorated-not cluttered out!

      The sandflies/midges/mosquitoes. Would take insect repellent next time. Suggestion- oil and vinegar make a powerful bug deterrent and itch soother. Perhaps it would be fitting with the era of the house to have some pottles on the verandah for use by guests in the evening..
