“Rather Expensive”
Reviewed February 19, 2012

The hotel is fine, but expensive compared to 5 star hotels in Auckland and Wellington. This rather spoilt it for us, though all of Queenstown seemed over-priced to us. The service was good, in the absence of the Owners.

Room Tip: We stayed in a Deluxe Room on the top floor. It was rather dated for the price, though quite spaciou...

It really doesn't get much better than this......Brown's was perfect for our stay in gorgeous Queenstown. The location was great, the breakfasts excellent, the room fantastic (ask for No. 5 or 10) and the Innkeepers Donald and Gillian went above and beyond to make our stay so very rewarding and comfortable. We stayed four nights and would recommend staying longer. What a beautiful setting. We'll be back!!!

Room Tip: Number 10 or 5......

We stayed at Brown's Boutique in Queenstown..very inviting and great hotel.
Don & Gillian, the Inn Keepers, were very helpful in choosing excursion activities. Breakfast was great and we wish it had been cold enough to sit by one of the fireplaces. If the weather is warm, the outdoor patio is delightful to enjoy and afternoon cocktail (BYO)

Great Hotel to base yourself in Queenstown within a short walking distance to the CBD. This was the best B & B breakfast we had in NZ. We stayed two nights and would gladly stay there again next time! Gillian and Donald were very welcoming was impressed by the greeting on first arrival and knowing who we were when we arrived. Homely, friendly, clean place and loved the mediterranean aspect with the conifer covered backdrop of the mountain behind. Everything was spot on!

We recently spent a few nights at Browns and found not only was its location very central but more importantly, Gillian and Donald were very helpful and considerate hosts. Great choice at breakfast time.

We'd stay here again. Great location (if you don't mind of flight of stairs when you come home for the night). Great breakfast. Clean rooms. Friendly owners. This place was the perfect Queenstown spot, since you are close to everything, but not in the middle of everything. Great views from the rooms too.

Room Tip: Top floor is best.

We stayed three nights at Browns as part of our honeymoon in February 2011. We found the hotel to be the most welcoming, homely, clean place and loved the mediterranean look and feel of it. Gillian and Donald are the most lovely and helpful hosts. Nothing was too much trouble, Gillian helped us organise day trips and make dinner reservations and all recommendations were excellent. We were given the top corner room and found it to be superb. Very spacious, comfy bed and marvellous views over the harbour and Queenstown in general. Even though we were by far the youngest guests in the hotel at the time, we found the conversations with fellow guests around the breakfast table to be very interesting and lovely. We loved the tranquility of the location away from the hustle and bustle of what can be quite a 'party' town full of young backpackers. We enjoyed our room so much, we had dinner in it twice when we could not face yet another restaurant meal (gets a bit boring after three weeks).

Yes, admittedly the parking is not great as the spaces outside the hotel are very tight, but you can always park on the road opposite, which we did not find to be a problem.

All in all, this was one of our favourite places to stay in the whole of New Zealand and is now one of my 'happy' places I dream myself back to whenever I need to escape the reality of everyday life.

Room Tip: Top floor corner room has the best views and is the biggest.
