Although Queenstown is beautiful, The Dairy with Matt and Paul as hosts was the highlight of our time there. There is nothing that I would change about the stay, the food was outstanding and we particularly loved the afternoon teas. I don't normally love scones, but they were absolutely amazing as were the brownies! I am not proud to admit... More

The Dairy is a great place to stay. It's very central, located right in the heart of Queenstown. The surroundings are perfect - from a cosy couch in front of the fire to molton brown toiletries to a perfectly placed spa bath looking out at the Remarkables. This was topped off by Matt and Paul who were incredible hosts and... More

The owners of this facility, Matt and Dan, do everything to make your stay as enjoyable as humanly possible. It is a very cozy, relaxed, charming place with lovely, comfortable rooms. They serve a fabulous breakfast, which they served us earlier than their daily schedule due to our early flight departure. In the living room there are several seating areas... More

As return visitors to The Diary; the same adjectives apply - amazing, fabulous, magical. And this time we also got to share this 'best in the world' experience with family. Mum and Dad were blown over with this most wonderful place and special hosts - Matt and Paul. Mum even teared up when she saw their room and remarked "it... More

The Dairy was one of the nicest small hotels we have been to and this time even though only one night was a great experience. Matt was an excellent host and made us so comfortable and cosy with excellent cosy lounges, the afternoon tea was superb. In the evening prior to going for dinner with recommendations from Matt we sat... More

Wow! This place is fabulous! We have travelled throughout the world, and this matches with the best 5 star hotels! Matt and Paul are wonderful hosts - tho not intrusive. Matts food is amazing (the breakfasts are up with the very top hotels, if not better), and the afternoon teas are such a treat. Loved the scones! I am on... More
