“Sumptuously Understated”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2011

As hosts, Matt and Paul left nothing to chance during my all too brief 2 day stay. Both were very welcoming with excellent suggestions for dining spots as well as sight seeing ideas. The hotel is located ideally close to all of the action, yet is cosy and quiet - full of charm with a lovely, relaxing lounge warmed by a superb log fire, a reading room, a spa and a breakfast room with a stunning view of the Remarkables mountain range.

Room Tip: Choose a room with a view of the Remarkables

A warm homely setting located so close to all the action. We thoroughly enjoyed the breakfasts cooked by the host himself. Afternoon tea was a delight and can't wait to come back soon!

A very enjoyable stay. Matt is very helpful and friendly. Room is comfortable with lots of little luxury touches, but not in an ostentatious way. Just a few steps from downtown, and with the mountains right outside the window. And very nice to have wireless internet already included. Would definitely stay there again.

As the former mayor of San Francisco, I have had an opportunity to travel to every part of the world and stay in top flight hotels for work and vacations. The Dairy with Matt and David at the helm is at the top of the list for private boutique luxury hotels. Nothing is left to chance...the rooms, food, service are always perfect and Matt's smart recommendations where to go in and about Queenstown made a spectacular difference in our enjoyment during a brief 2 day stay there.

Room Tip: Book early

A fantastic welcome to a lovely luxury boutique hotel. Very stylish and comfortable. A raging fire was a massive plus as was the delicious afternoon tea. We will definately look forward to staying there again and utilising the hot tub!
Thanks for a great few days

Had a fantastic time, very relaxing 4 days, enjoying the local sights etc, sitting in the spa watching the snow.
Breakfast was great, left too full every morning. Lovely to come back to an open fire after a night out.

Room Tip: premier room with a view

We read the reviews of The Dairy on Tripadvisor so it was easy to make the decision to stay here.
I can add nothing further to the already glowing reviews of this B & B.
One word describes just about everything Matt and Paul do at this place:
PERFECT
Location: perfect. Food: perfect. Comfort: perfect. Service: Outstanding

Room Tip: Ask for an upgrade
