Braemar was built in 1901 as a "gentleman's townhouse" . We have restored the house and renovated the services to incorporate 21st century technology including secure wireless broadband internet. In our own offstreet carpark we can offer free parking . All of our bathrooms have walk-in showers and large claw-foot baths. The guest lounge features a projector TV (very large screen!), and open fireplace for winter warmth. In summer our sunny decks are popular for relaxing .
Braemar on Parliament Street Bed & Breakfast in Auckland City has been recognised as one of New Zealand's most environmentally responsible tourism businesses with its achievement of Qualmark's Enviro-Gold accreditation.
Enviro-Gold is the highest rating able to be achieved under Qualmark Green, a set of responsible tourism criteria designed to extend environmental and socially responsible actions for tourism businesses. The criteria recognises energy, water, waste, community, conservation programmes and monitoring. Braemar’s green programme covers the full range of responsible tourism criteria, from water and energy conservation and waste minimisation to involvement in community programmes in wildlife conservation and heritage preservation.
