This a very charming small European style hotel, with lovely rooms, very nice views across Queenstown and the lake, and a short walk down to the town centre. We only had one night but the bed was the best of our trip around the South Island, and our room and the common areas were delightful. We wished we'd had more... More

My husband and I stayed here recently. This boutique accomodation has a lot going for it. It has a great location, limited views and very friendly staff. The breakfast provided was also excellent. There is a lovely lounge to sit in as well. I thought that the rooms were quite rustic and not what I would expect of a boutique... More

Lovely hotel, perfect location but the thing that made our stay special were our hosts Donald and Gillian. The breakfasts were great and it was fun mingling with the other guests at breakfast time. Happy stay!

We stayed at Browns for our first child free holiday - and we were not disappointed by our choice. We were greeted by the very friendly, efficient and delightful Joni, who gave us a tour of the hotel and our room, pointing out all of the little home made touches that give Browns its home away from home feel. Fresh... More

Brown's is a quaint styled small hotel a short walk from the town centre. Our room was very nicely appointed with plenty of space. The bed was very comfortable with lovely linen. Hosts Gillian & Donald are wonderfully welcoming and nice people. They provided a sumptuous breakfast in a cosy dining area. This hotel is a gem!

My partner and I stayed at Browns for 6 nights when we visited Queenstown. I booked several months in advance and requested room 10 and was informed that this would be possible. When we arrived we were put into a different room and were slightly disappointed. Despite this, Gillian and Donald went out of their way for us and the... More

We stayed here during a holiday in Central Otago for our wedding anniversary and it is one the best hotels we have stayed in Queenstown. The hospitality, assistance, tips from the owners is second to none and truly appreciated when one is on holiday and trying the make the most of every minute of every day. The location is fantastic... More

My wife and I loved staying at Browns in Queenstown. Donald and Gillian are fantastic hosts, the hotel is really homely. A special mention goes to the breakfasts - which are great and set us up for a day of skiing.

Just returned from travelling around New Zealand and had to write about this place as it was so good. The location is great being a 5 minute walk from the centre. The rooms are large and very well equipped, we couldn't fault it. Breakfast is included in the price and was excellent, they even have breakfast specials each morning. The... More
