Firstly I'd like to say a huge thank-you to Mat and Paul! We stayed 3 nights at The Dairy in July for a surprise engagement holiday. I cannot say enough good things about this hotel and the two men who run it! They did everything and more to accommodate for our needs and questions. They recommended and booked all our... More

Paul and Matt made us feel so welcome. They are very special hosts and treat their guests with respect, humour, trust (the honour book was such an example) and nothing is ever too much trouble for either of them no matter how busy they may be. Their guest's needs always come first. They can arrange a trip for you in... More

Forget the skiing and adrenaline adventures that Queenstown offers - it's the afternoon tea at The Dairy that this town will be famous for soon! My wife and I stayed at The Dairy mid-August and were both very impressed by the hotel, it's location to the town and especially the hospitality extended to us by both Paul and Matt. Our... More

Stayed a few weeks ago on our first trip to Queenstown. Was out of this world...everything from amazing food, hosts, interior, hot tub, in house bar, roaring fire, extensive reading material, free bikes and jellybeans to fuel us after a hard days skiing was covered. The lovely hosts informed us every morning of ski conditions. They recommended places to eat... More

Perfect location and spotlessly clean. If a relaxing hotel stay is part of your plan for Queenstown then look no further. The 2 hardest working gentlemen in town cater for their guests carefully and are happy to provide advice when they are not busy preparing the excellent breakfast or equally excellent afternoon tea.

Our second trip to this fabulous little hotel. I love the intimate setting, the exceptional service and the wonderful food. Afternoon tea is an absolute treat and sitting in the spa looking at the mountains was a perfect way to end a busy day. We will be back.

We had 6 days at The Dairy at the end of July, 2014. Everything was perfect - beautiful room, exquisite breakfasts and fabulous afternoon tea by the fire place. Paul and Matt were excellent hosts ensuring our Queenstown holiday was memorable. We appreciated their attention to detail and nothing was too much trouble for them. Will definitely be back.

Small and perfectly formed is how I would sum up The Dairy. Matt and Paul have created a very special destination without ostentation and attitude. It's comfort and elegance all the way. The service is impeccable - this team were born for hospitality. They booked restaurants and organised day trips while poaching perfect eggs (gave us lessons!) which brings me... More

The Dairy is worth every penny. Nothing is too difficult for Matt and Paul, and they genuinely go out of their way to make your stay as comfortable as possible. They are possibly the nicest guys in the world. I absolutely loved the breakfasts, the afternoon teas and the restaurant recommendations/reservations. After 7 nights, we were sad to have to... More

Travelling just from our wedding in Europe, swap luggage in Singapore to arrive directly to Queenstown and the Dairy. We couldn’t get a better place, such a nice and perfect place! It felt like arriving at a family stay as Paul and Matt pay attention to every single little detail, and that little extra that make you feel very welcome.... More
