“welcoming comfort”
Reviewed June 15, 2010

Gillian and Donald were friendly and welcoming, no request too hard to accommodate. The breakfast was superb right down to specialised teas to suit every taste. In a very cold climate the rooms were warm and the bed and pillows very comfortable. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

We love this place. We stayed here last year at the end of our trip around NZ and decided to stay here again this year before we flew off home. We wish we could have stayed longer.

Gillian and Donald have created an accommodation which excels in every area a traveler appreciates. They themselves are congenial and knowledgeable hosts and are willing to do whatever they can to ensure that their guests have the best experience of Queenstown. They willingly shared their knowledge of restaurants, sights, attractions, activities and tours and never steered us wrong.

The property is situated a short walk from town so guests have the convenience of Queenstown without the bustle and noise at night. Off street parking is available, but it is tight. We have had the same room twice (#10) on the top floor at the end which has stunning views of Queenstown, the Remarkables and fabulous sunsets. The rooms are generously sized, immaculate, and beautifully and comfortably appointed. The bathrooms are spacious and modern. It would be nice to have more counter space to put toiletries.

Continental as well as cooked to order breakfasts are provided and the food is excellent. The dining room is set with large tables so that guests are able to mingle and chat and share traveling experiences.

The lounge is comfortable with a fireplace, free internet access and plenty of books, magazines and newspapers for reading and relaxing.

We highly recommend Brown's as a wonderful place to stay to add to your enjoyment of all that Queenstown has to offer.

Great small hotel right up the hill from the main shopping area in Queenstown. Up a small hill in a quiet area. Very convenient, five minute walk into town. Rooms were very clean, roomy with nice views of Queenstown. Donald and Gillian take good care of you! Highly recommend, great small hotel.

We chose Browns simply to fit in with walking the Milford track. Gillian and Donald made that aspect a doddle - they're used to having people leave a car and all their gear behind and return later. What a pity we didn't plan to stay longer with them and enjoy the quiet country house atmosphere of their charming little hotel, just above the town. Not cheap, but you are enjoying quality and experience. When you come back at the end from the Ultimate Hikes HQ, get a car to carry the plastic sacks with all your gear. It's not far, but without the 40 litre sack, the uphill walk will just about kill you!

We stayed two nights in Queenstown at Brown's Botique. Gillian and Donald were very accomodating helping us with our early morning trip to Milford Sound. Since we were too early for breakfast they gave us food for the morning. The room was nice with a great view of the Remarkables and lots of skydivers floating down overhead from the mountain alongside.

best place for completing an ultimate hikes trip. very close to the centre of town. Gillian and Donald are the best hosts and nothing is too much trouble. We will be returning soon.
