Our Guests comments
" Simply, I loved Browns Boutique Hotel, the food, and everyone associated with it!  It was the best place I stayed during my entire 2 month trip to New Zealand and Australia - and I stayed in many places during that time. My room was large, well appointed and had a sweet "Juliet balcony" with wooden French doors that allowed me to see mountains, town and water, whether the doors were open or closed.  It's like staying with old and good friends who love you.  Thank you for a lovely experience, Gillian and Donald. I'll never forget Browns or you. "
