It is truly a luxury boutique hotel. Perfectly situated near the foot of the gondola in Queenstown. We where greeted by Paul as I tried to find a parking spot. He quickly directed me to a dedicated parking spot. From that moment on, we felt like we were the most important people in the world. We then met Matt who... More

We have just had 5 nights at the Dairy, and would recommend it in a heart beat. It's centrally located, offers wonderful personal service, winning breakfasts, and is efficiently run by 2 great blokes!

Spent 3 nights at the Dairy followed by a night at the Hilton Queenstown. The hotel is a short walk to downtown, and a short walk uphill to the Gondola. It is very quiet despite being very close to downtown and the rooms were immaculate with small travel size molton brown toiletries. Breakfasts were wonderful, with a continental spread, and... More

We recently spent 10 days on the South Island with another couple. We started out in Queenstown and spent 3 nights at The Dairy. It was the perfect place for us. Ten rooms, wonderfully appointed, a short walk to downtown, and fabulous hosts. Matt and Paul spoiled us with their hospitality and their incredible breakfasts. All four of us loved... More

Probably the best place we've ever stayed, anywhere in the world. Highly recommend to anyone. The perfect combination of location, service, comfort, and quiet. I would stay there again in a heartbeat. Thank you for your hospitality, and a truly restful and enjoyable stay.

It worth the price! The Dairy was the most expensive hotel we stayed in our 20 days trip around New Zeland, in March 2014, but without any regret. The facilities, the room, breakfast, Matt and Paul ... everything perfect. Confortable, spotless, delicious food, location more than perfect ... nothing can beat! We were "more than delighted".

The Dairy was a fantastic experience. We stayed there for 4 nights and were completely spoiled by Matt and Paul. They were very attentive to our needs and helpful with recommendations on food and activities. The hotel was gorgeous and we spent every evening in the outdoor hot tub. The location was great too- 1 minute walk to town, but... More

The Dairy is simply an outstanding experience. Matt and Paul (the hosts/owners) have created a luxurious, and friendly holiday destination. Comfortable furnishings, quality food and wine and excellent made it a holiday to savour. Highlights include the afternoon tea, drinks from the honesty bar sitting in front of the open fire and chatting with guests from all parts of the... More

This was the best hotel stay I had during the entire trip to Australia and New Zealand. Matt and Paul are phenomenal. They are the consummate hosts. From the moment I entered and was greeted by Paul- we hit it off right away- to the time I left, they were both exceptional. The hotel, once a dairy store offers sensational... More

My wife and I had the pleasure of staying 5 nights at The Dairy the first week of March. I can't say enough good things about the accommodations, the location, and our hosts, Paul and Matt. They have thoughtfully designed everything to cater to the needs of their guests. They and the accommodations are quite welcoming. The lobby area with... More
