Property Description

Braemar House (built 1880) B&B and YHA Hostel is a restored historic homestead located on the banks of the Whanganui River. We have FREE unlimited high-speed wifi and provide a wide range of accommodation options to suit all budgets including Deluxe Private Rooms in our historic Bed and Breakfast wing, great value private Family/Group, Double or Twin Cabin options, or an affordable bunk-bed in our shared Hostel Dorms.

Our B&B wing has 7 unique private rooms with a range of double and twin options, some rooms with garden views and some with access to the front veranda where you can enjoy a good book or morning coffee. Bathrooms are shared in this wing but with three toilets, two showers and a bath there are plenty of options even if you decide to book the whole wing for a group. The B&B wing also has its own private lounge and dining room for you to enjoy.

Our private Cabins and hostel Dorm rooms (YHA) are spotlessly clean, as is our hostel lounge and adjoining communal hostel kitchen with plenty of space and equipment to prepare your meals and space for food storage. In season you can pick a variety of fresh fruits such as delicious grapefruit from the trees and you may also have some extra vegetables from our excellent vegetable garden. We have a very comfortable laid back hostel and if you want to unwind, totally relax, sunbathe in the garden, grab a book from our library or book swap shelf, or watch TV and feel at home, then this is the place for you.

We are just a five minute walk to plenty of tourist attractions and great restaurants and cafes and 10 minute walk from the main street, Victoria Avenue. We are centrally heated in winter and free parking is available in the wide street, directly in front of Braemar House.

We have in house access to Hostel International/YHA forward booking facilities and YHA travel desk. The Paddle Steamer Waimarie passes daily in front of the Hostel in Summer, while the famous Mail Run Tours pick up daily from the Hostel. The Volcanic Plateau and Skifields (Turoa) are approximately 1-1/2 hours driving from Wanganui.

Whilst every endeavour will be made to ensure you are accommodated in the same room throughout your stay, due to limited availability at time of booking, it may be necessary for you to change rooms. If applicable, you will be advised of this at check-in. You will be accommodated in a room of similar or higher standard to that originally booked.
Due to limited availability at time of booking, multi-share accommodation for two or more guests may be provided in separate rooms. Every endeavour will be made to ensure this does not occur, but should this be necessary you will be advised at check-in.

We look forward to welcoming you to Braemar House! View House Rules

    The property is beautiful. Just on the opposite side of the road to the river, well-maintained, beautiful spaces and facilities. The most welcoming hosts who are helpful without intruding. The room was stylishly decorated, with an incredibly comfortable bed and plenty of space. It opened up onto a shared balcony which was well equipped with comfy chairs and tables as an early morning coffee spot. The breakfast was delicious. I would highly recommend.

    I stayed here for a night with a couple friends while we were passing through to go up to canoe on the Whanganui River. Perfect quiet spot to relax before heading out for adventures. The woman at the front desk gave us a warm welcome. Overall, good experience!

    Comfortable and welcoming hostel. Owners are very friendly and helpful. Kitchen is clean and well equipped and WiFi is unlimited and accessible. Very small hostel so atmosphere is lacking, but this is more due to the small town than the hostel itself.
