We stayed for 2 nights at the Crown View BandB (run by fabulous hosts Carroll and Reg) in February this year. This was the best 2 nights of our travels in the South Island - not just because of the stunning scenery and proximity to attractions in both Queentown and Arrowtown, but also the warm welcome we received at the Crown View.
We had the bedroom on the ground floor (very clean, bright, comfortable), with a private bathroom across the hall. This was not a problem at all, as Carroll provides robes and we never felt that our privacy was disturbed.
Breakfast was served in the guests dining area, and we ate with the other guests staying at the BandB (2 others). This was great to share tips and travelling stories. The quantity, variety and quality of food was excellent - cereals, fresh fruit salad, toast, yoghurt, full cooked breakfast etc.
Carroll also arranged a couple of activities for us (JetBoat and a fly cruise to Milford Sound), which saved us the hassle of phoning up and booking and didn't cost us any more.
We were able to use the laundry facilities and, once washed, Carroll arranged to have it dried etc whilst we were out for the day. We returned to all our clean smelling washing, folded on our bed when we came back in the evening - what a great service!
Finally, each evening we shared a bottle of wine in the garden as the sun set. The property has some of the best views over the surrounding countryside - a picture postcard view that I am still carrying around in my head. In summary, if you are looking for a warm and comfortable stay whilst you are in Queenstown then you must choose the Crown View.
