Browns Boutique Bed and Breakfast

Top choice bed and breakfast in Whanganui
Image by

Owned by the same family for more than 50 years, this 1910 house was coincidentally built by an unrelated Brown. There are two rooms out the back with private entrances, looking out onto a patio, with tasteful decor and quirky touches (a typewriter for a guestbook, tiles made by a Moroccan–New Zealander...). The gourmet breakfasts with free-range produce are winners.

The double drops to $190 per night for stays of three nights or more.
