Braemar on Parliament Street is a unique bed and breakfast establishment, being the only Edwardian townhouse in the Auckland central business district still used as a residence.

Built in 1901, it has been lovingly restored but with the addition of up to the minute technology for comfort and convenience.

It's the title shot in Geoff Murphy's Kiwi classic movie "Goodbye Pork Pie". Our Kauri staircase dazzled in Don Selwyn's beautiful film "Maori Merchant of Venice". Where flyer Jean Batten's father Fred had his apartment upstairs is now our main guest suite.

The richly furnished huge front parlour can be a theatrette with its video projector and Hi-Fi sound system. Sky digital is available on all the house TV's and can be controlled by the guest's own Sky remote in any room.

Braemar is a smoke free environment and fire safety is assured by an active fire detection system connected to the central fire station. We can valet park guests' cars in our own parking area and broadband Internet is available.

Being located in the Auckland CBD means that cinemas, theatres, cafes and restaurants are all just a short walk away.

Your hosts have owned Braemar since 1994 and have fully restored and renovated the house including bringing the latest technology into the house. Braemar is situated in a heritage residential precinct in the heart of Auckland city and is in a tree lined street just 200 yards from a beautiful park. It is within close walking distance of the beautiful Auckland Domain, another large parkland which hosts concerts in the summer and has sports grounds and tearooms. Being so close to the heart of the city yet so close to the parks and city beaches makes Braemar a unique bed and breakfast choice.

Guest Rooms:

Upstairs in the "Batten Suite", a guest suite of three rooms, the bedroom is furnished with antique furniture and a queen size "posturepaedic" bed, separate tiled shower and toilet.  The third room in the suite is a private lounge with heritage open fireplace, the couch folding out to sleep two when required. We also have two guest rooms that share the original big bathroom.

All guestrooms have internet access. All our bathrooms have restored old style large clawfoot baths and separate stand alone tiled showers, served by continuous hot water gas burners. Heat lamps warm these areas as fans extract the steam. All toiletries are complimentary and we endeavour to offer the finest New Zealand made products available.

Batten Suite:

The Batten suite is named after Fred Batten, the father of New Zealand's own flying ace, Jean Batten. Fred Batten lived here for 40 years when the house was in apartments and part of the Courtville apartment complex.
