We loved our stay at The Dairy recently. Ulani was the perfect host, nothing was too much trouble for her, booking tables at restaurants and making flight reservations. Not only that the room was great, real comfy bed and a powerful shower just as I like it. The private lounges were an added bonus. All in all a great stay!

We stayed at the Dairy the night before a 6 day tramping trip and returned to stay one night before heading home. We were met at the door by Ulina who welcomed us with a glass of champagne, a tour of the lovely interior space, and took us up to a gorgeous room. She booked us a reservation at a...

The Dairy has a lot of nice things going for it, but with some limitations. It's in a great location, they've done a very nice job of remodeling the interior, and the common rooms in particular are beautiful. The service is also very good. On the other hand, the standard rooms are a bit small and ordinary. Parking is limited,...

We enjoyed our 4 night stay here and would return if/when we come back to Queenstown. Prior to our arrival, I emailed the hotel and had very prompt replies from Ulani. She made recommendations for both activities and restaurants and was able to make reservations for us prior to our arrival. Because we left early 2 of the mornings so...

We stayed at The Dairy on our first stop of our tour of New Zealand. It was delightful, very welcoming and helpful staff. They were very accommodating in allowing us to leave luggage whilst we went away for a night. I left my address book and they very kindly posted it on to me in Wellington. The breakfast was delicious....

The Dairy is in a great location - walking distance to Queenstown and the Gondolier. The rooms were very comfortable as was the lounge and snug areas and very well decorated and stylish. Beds were very comfy. However, there are a few issues that impacted on our ability to really relax and enjoy over the 4 nights we stayed. The...

Charming,welcoming and with great linens, The Dairy is gently perched on a quiet corner overlooking the beautiful lake and mountains of Queenstown. Delicious breakfast in a sun filled room starts your day. Quiet, small but luxurious rooms greet you at its end.

We stayed at The Dairy for four nights and could not have chosen a better stay. We highly recommend this private hotel, and we will stay here again when we return. The Dairy is located ideally on the edge of downtown Queenstown. It's one block from downtown shops and restaurants and a few hundred steps from the gondola. We could...

We had a nice stay at The Dairy. The staff was wonderful and very helpful in suggesting places to see and restaurants. Our room, however, was disappointingly small and felt cramped despite being well appointed and spotlessly clean. I would probably skip Queenstown altogether on our next NZ adventure.
