Great place to stay! Very happy and will definitely stay there again! Super professional, friendly and very helpful! Being able to leave our bags their for 5 days in between stays while we hiked the Milford Track was so convenient. Highly recommended and would stay there again. ; )

Well needed pampering and luxury after 5 days afield. Comfortable towels & sheets. Also we forgot our iPad in the room & they quickly contacted us and then sent it to us at our next location many, many miles away. Thank you Richard and Charlotte. Fog

The Dairy was such a treat while in Queenstown! Greeted with a glass of bubbly, directions around the property, and tips for the area by co-owner Richard. Beautifully appointed rooms, comfy beds and bedding, and superb location. I highly recommend!

We had a room on the first floor, excellent bathroom, spacious and clean. I could have stayed longer. The Dairy is wonderfully accessible both to town and its...

Room had small balcony on Main Street with lots of passing traffic to gondola and crazy golf, slightly noisy but good for people watching! Use of...

My husband and I started our New Zealand vacation with 4 nights at The Dairy and it was perfect! We weren't sure what to expect when the travel agent showed us the exterior pictures, but this is a gem! Our hosts, Ulure and Charlotte made us feel so welcome and were very helpful and friendly throughout our stay. The breakfasts...

We were disappointed. They don't mention the stairs everywhere. Pack light because you have to get your heavy suitcase up the stairs only to have a very small room with hardly any space between the edge of the bed and the wall. The bathroom had no shelves and we had to leave our toiletries on the bed. Down the stairs...

Nice little luxury boutique hotel with a personal touch. The location is in the middle of Queenstown a stone throw away from the hustle and bustle yet in a tranquil location so no noice at all. Rooms are of high standard and very clean. The breakfast is supurb. We have been pampered with excellent service by Ulani and her team....

Outstanding location, staff, sleep quality and breakfast! Only a five minute walk from the commercial area and in a quiet area. Excellent restaurant and activity recommendations. Cozy room to watch LOTR movies. Delicious and bountiful breakfast!

We usually visit 5 stars hotels and decided to book at the dairy in Queenstown as it was very well placed. This hotel has nothing to envy to any of the 5 stars hotels that we ´ve been to. Warm and personalized welcome, cosy and charming decoration. Amazing staff amazing place amazing stay
