Bevin, Kim, and Alex are experts at providing exceptional service. We experienced The Dairy as a luxury hotel with a homely and relaxed atmosphere. The size of the room was more than adequate with all creature comforts to make the stay comfortable. The hotel is centrally located and short walking distance to centre of town, the lake, and the Gondola.... More

This was exactly what we needed after a long drive down from the West Coast. We were met by Bevan, who made us feel very welcome and at home. The Dairy has a lovely feel to it, with the decor echoing this ambiance. In particular the log fire in the lounge area adds to the experience and was especially good... More

A gem! Bevan and Kim are the friendliest hosts you could hope for. The Diary is luxurious and full of charm. The rooms have jaw dropping views of the Remarkables and are super comfortable. Wi Fi is quick and easy, the bathrooms are spotless and the hot water is strong and endless. Breakfast is out of this world good and... More

What a lovely property! The Dairy is well-situated within easy walking distance to town but not too close--the view was spectacular! The property is warm, upscale and inviting and Kim and Bevan were the perfect hosts! They handled all our requests--we loved the plane ride over Milford Sound! Afternoon tea was delightful and the breakfasts amazing! This was our first... More

Lovely people, clean very tidy place. When you leave your ski's & snow gear in their drying room you do not expect to see the outside door wide open to the public on the footpath and passing traffic,not once but twice it was left open during the day. We stopped and went back and closed the door from the inside.... More

The hotel is located 5 mns away from the heart of Queenstown. It has a very charming and welcoming touch to it and the room was very cosy. The outdoor jacuzzi is a great addition, especially during winter. Great hospitality from the owners! The breakfast however could be better in terms of variety and quality. A must try especially in... More

My wife and I stayed here at the end of our trip and loved everything about it. Great location and service. The owners went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we needed. We will definitely stay here when we return to Queenstown.
