“Charming small hotel nestled right above main streets of Queenstown”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 May 2010

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.

This a really nice place in a fabulous part of the world. The owners were so friendly--really made us feel at home. They made great dinner suggestions, and helped us arrange tours. It was a very comfortable place to spend a few days. Highly recommended.

Brown’s Boutique is a wonderful small hotel walking distance to everything in Queenstown. Contrary to previous reviewer, we felt it was a good value for their hospitality, cleanliness, friendliness, ideal location and delicious wholesome breakfasts while being in a very popular town. Queenstown is a tourist area and a jumping off spot for many outdoor activities and draws many young adults, as well as older ones (like us, grin) and can be a little noisy during weekend nights. That being said, Brown’s and its hosts, Gillian and Donald were accessible, engaging and very friendly…truly making our stay memorable. They even stored our luggage while we hiked the Routeburn Track for 3 days…very convenient. Gillian and Donald also had wonderful restaurant recommendations…avoiding the pricey ones and suggesting ones with good food & ambiance. Their recommendations were perfect for us. As for our room, it was large with a fantastic view of harbor, the beds were extremely comfortable and all amenities top quality. We also took advantage of the free internet services. We highly recommend Brown’s and thoroughly enjoyed our stay with Gillian and Donald.
