“Wonderful hopspitality, wonderfully located”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 April 2012

This is really a fabulous place - just steps away from the center of town and the gondola, yet in a quiet neighborhood. The hosts/owners are wonderfully warm and helpful, while also staying out of the way. Breakfast is delicious too - and sitting by the fire at the end of a busy the day is just perfect!

It's not very often that you experience service of such a consistently high standard. Both Matt & Paul are simply outstanding hosts. Every detail has been considered. The property is gorgeous the food is excellent this small private hotel has gone straight to the top as of my most favourite small hotels in the world. If your coming to Queenstown a stay at the Dairy is a must! Ten out of Ten.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Dairy. Upon arrival you are met by either Paul or Matt, given a warm reception, a tour of the Dairy, and service that never quits your entire stay. Paul and Matt are two of the most gracious hosts we've met. The Dairy is centrally located just a block from the gondola and two blocks from the center of town. The breakfasts are great and a it's a real treat when either Paul or Matt serves hot popcorn while you're watching a movie in the library. There is free WIFI in the hotel that worked well throughout the property. The room was very nice, with delux bedding and towels, and was very clean and neat every day. With all of these amenities the greatest part of our stay was the hospitality, service, and charm of our managers. Paul and Matt make the Dairy what it is. We will certainly stay here on our return trip.

Room Tip: All rooms are about the same. The Dairy is located in a residential area and does see some foot tra...

Those of us who have been fortunate enough to enjoy Matt and Paul's hospitality will remember it forever as an example of the way every single hotel/inn/lodge in the world should be run. They are not only consummate professionals in the world of hospitality but they are also the MOST delightful people to spend time with. To arrive late one afternoon after a beautiful drive from Franz Josef to their "home" was such a special treat. They helped us unload our car, immediately made us familiar with our surroundings, made a dinner recommendation, and truly made us feel welcome. We were spoiled by every moment and every gesture and cannot thank them enough for everything they did to make the end of THIS New Zealand adventure so perfect. We cannot wait to return.....

Room Tip: They are all WONDERFUL!!!! It's not so much about the room's location as it is about the atm...

The Dairy gets every detail right. Bedding, decor, bathing products, the common rooms are lux, contemporary cool, and very comfortable. Matt and Paul, the owners, are truly amazing. Gracious, thoughtful, funny, and unbelievably dedicated to providing outstanding service. Staying here feels like staying with friends - friends with a gorgeous home who know how to host.
