Simply the best guests


A Queenstown bed and breakfast place has been voted No 1 in its category by guest feedback to a prestigious global travel website.

Crown View Bed and Breakfast was honoured with the gong for the South Pacific region in Trip Advisor’s Traveller’s Choice awards.

The Littles Road accommodation owner Caroll Fraser is “chuffed” with the top rating. “It’s great news for us and I guess the reason boils down to good, old-fashioned southern hospitality,” she says. “We always say ‘arrive as a guest and leave as a friend’.”

Fraser and husband Reg have been living in Queenstown for the past nine years and turned their five-bedroom home into a B and B six years ago.

“It’s grown like topsy since then,” she says. “We’re getting a lot of repeat visitors and often receive thank-you cards in the mail.”

Frankton Rd property Pencarrow B and B is also featured in the Top 10, coming in fifth in the 2010 awards – based on the opinions of users of the travel information website.
