We loved our stay at Browns Boutique Hotel for the friendly and knowledgable hosts, the hugely comfortable bed, the great location, the delicious breakfasts and the little touches of luxury. Our bedroom was well fitted out, and in addition to a bed so comfortable you never wanted to leave it we had the added bonus of a fabulous view of... More

For our stay in Queenstown, Browns was in an excellent location, was a spotless, charming property, and had very helpful, personal service. Gillian and Donald covered all of the bases during our several night stay. We felt Gillian's kind and watchful eye in several respects, which greatly enhanced our experience. Her local restaurant recommendations were spot-on, which was so valuable... More

We just concluded 3 nights at Brown's, and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The location is 2 blocks up the hill, close to the base of the gondola, and equally convenient - 7 minute walk - to town centre. The inn is in excellent condition. Our room - #6 - was quiet, clean, spacious, and well appointed. We enjoyed the charming... More

A real gem right in the heart of Queenstown, only 5 mins to the centre of town. Lovely views, generous rooms with excellent attention to detail. The hosts are lovely folk, and make their guests welcome. The breakfast is first class, and could not hope for better. If you like somewhere smaller and more personal than a big hotel chain,... More

First I should start by saying that the owners were away and we had a backup crew. Unfortunately we did not pay a reduced price. The rooms were immaculate and well presented and there were those yummy biscuits everyone has raved about. The hotel is also very well located, just a short stroll to town. The view from our room...

Oh dear, we are sorry we were not here for you Leanne, however we are not sure why you would expect a reduced price just because the owners were not there. We have had a chat to our relief managers and other guests who were here at the same time as you. Not sure what time you came to the... More

Nice views from a high point near the gondola but still quite close to major shopping/dining/nightlife areas of Queenstown. We walked everywhere and made it to the waterfront where most of the action is in under 10 minutes. Coming back was a bit longer due to the uphill climb, but nothing too strenuous. The room was quite comfortable and well... More

Stayed here for 3 nights and loved it! Just could not fault this place. Gillian and Donald are wonderful hosts and it just feels like home. Lovely dining and lounge area and perfect breakfasts. Will definitely stay here again and highly recommend it. Great position in town, walk to everywhere.

What a great place to stay, it is clean, well appointed. Donald and Gillian make you feel at home. Great value and close to the action. The views are great from the balcony. The fire in the afternoon is warm and inviting, with comfortable furniture to relax on. Donald's breakfast is delicious, for us included in the price

Positioned walking distance from the centre of Queenstowns CBD, Browns boutique hotel is ideally placed for guests to walk to their favorite eatery's. The hotel itself is a three storied home away from home that is both a comfortable and welcoming retreat to guests.

I'm almost reticent to share this one - as I'd love to keep this all to ourselves. This was simply the most enjoyable stay in Queenstown. The hotel is designed in a very Tuscan/Swiss chalet style, with a homely look and an even more homely welcome. Gillian and Donald are superb hosts who genuinely care about their guests and their...
