The Dairy Private Luxury Hotel

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The Dairy Private Hotel is in the perfect location for Queenstown. The rooms are very nice and comfortable. The breakfast is made to order and very good. The common areas are very comfortable and I love the giant jar of jelly beans by the front door. The hosts are absolutely wonderful and they will spend time going over any directions or suggestions you might need.

Excellent hotel, very cozy and unbeatable location. Walking distance to all the restaurants and places to visit. The staff was very nice and helpful in planning our daily activities and booking a tour to Milford Sound. If I go back to Queenstown I would definitely stay there again!

What a great trip and great accommodations. The Dairy is a small boutique hotel that caters to the every need of its guests. From the fresh made to order breakfasts to the cozy library - the setting is outstanding! The staff accommodated our many itinerary changes and made the experience truly memorable! A perfect place to stay in Queenstown

We booked this private hotel after reading other reviews. Small, intimate 13 rooms .Our room was comfortable with a great bed and excellent shower and amenities. Breakfast was served in a cozy dining room with nice views . Besides the continental breakfast , there were several choices of hot meals as well. The chef was very accommodating and we enjoyed her preparations. Katherine, the manager, is what gives this hotel an extra edge. She is extremely helpful, friendly, efficient and professional. Thank you Katherine! She also recommended an excellent driver from Catch transport as we found taxis extremely expensive. I might have planned longer excursions had I known about him prior to going to Queenstown. ( his name is Shane). He is reasonably priced and very knoweldagble and reliable. The Dairy is a few steps from all of the action and hikes, but is actually very quiet . I would defintley recommend and I hope to go back

A beautifully appointed private hotel, with excellent guest facilities, close to the heart of Queenstown. Accommodating helpful staff, beautiful breakfasts. Didn't want to leave. We will certainly be booking this accommodation next time we are in Queenstown. The only place to stay.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this boutique hotel. Owners were very accommodating and gave us good advice on activities. The breakfast was absolutely yummy and the hotel was impeccably clean. We liked the location who h was steps to the middle of queenstown

Thank you to you both for a wonderful stay. Very unique, cosy, always warm, tidy and accommodating hotel. The little touches were appreciated, especially for a weekend away for my husbands birthday. Richard was genuinely interested in our plans and what we had been up to, this was very sweet. Hope you both had a lovely holiday in Fiji. Katie and Andy Robinson.

A warm, genuine and thorough check-in from Richard. A truly beautiful private hotel located very close to shops, eateries and tourist attractions. We will definitely be back. We caught up with some lovely couples over breakfast and swapped our holiday experiences. Amanda and Stuart

Perfect location, very friendly and helpful host (Catherine?) who went out of her way to make sure we got the full Queenstown experience! Lovely breakfasts and just very convenient to everything in town. Hot tub was a massive bonus for our burning legs at the end of a full day skiing!

Very bespoke service, helping with everything from itinerary suggestions to restaurant recommendations, liaising with Air Milford on our behalf, and checking the weather for us. Richard and the other staff were the quintessential hosts for our stay in Queenstown. The room was well decorated and we were greeted with fresh home baked cookies when we arrived. Felt like staying both at a 5 star hotel and a family home.
