The hotel was purpose built in 2000 by Queenstown locals, Nigel and Bridget Brown.
They originally opened and operated until 2008 when it was purchased by Gillian and Donald McDonald. Gillian and Donald, your current hosts, are New Zealanders who have lived in Queenstown for many years.
We have a long working history in tourism in Queenstown, Taupo, Rotorua and Nelson, our experience comes from over 30 years in hospitality, transport and the attraction side of New Zealand tourism.
Gillian's home baked muesli and ANZAC biscuits recipes are now travelling the world, they are so popular.
"We have a genuine desire to help make our guest's visit to Queenstown totally memorable
and to share with them our knowledge and experience. For us personally it is our guests
who make owning this lovely property so enjoyable. We meet such a diverse mix of such
interesting people from all over the world and their very positive stories and their enjoyment
of their time in New Zealand makes us very proud Kiwis!"
