Travellers' Choice
Built around Queenstown’s original dairy dating back to the 1920s, this boutique hotel offers exquisite rooms featuring botanical themed wallpapers from House of Hackney (a first in New Zealand) set against the backdrop of the picturesque views of The Remarkables mountain range and Lake Wakatipu. Immerse yourself in a private home away from home – unwind in our sumptuous lounge where complimentary drinks are served nightly between 5pm-6pm, curl up in our private library or take in the stunning beauty of the landscape in our outdoor jacuzzi. Location really does dazzle with the hotel just moments away from the buzz of the city centre.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Very well appointed hotel with a friendly staff in an ideal location. We barely moved our car and many attractions will puck up at this location. They had limited parking on site but we were able to get in. The public parking lot is right next door so no worries. Plenty of free snacks and drinks in the room and a good happy hour as well.Highly recommend this hotel.

Amazing service and the most looked after I think I've felt in a hotel ever. We were hiking so out of reception and returned later than expected due to weather, when we got back we found our card had failed. Instead of kicking us to the curb and leaving us without a place to stay, they arranged for a self check in situation where we could square up payment in the morning, and went out of their way to provide a bottle of wine and extra snacks to make up for the fact we missed the free happy hour. Totally blown away and grateful to the team.

Our second stay at The Dairy. Great location, friendly staff, unique decor, cosy lounge, happy hour chats with other guests, very comfortable room with a bath!! We find microfibre duvets too warm - staff happily found a comfortable alternative. We chose to go to local cafe for breakfast. Will be back.

Our stay was an amazing experience. The room was very well appointed and stylishly decorated. Free happy hour in the lounge with other guests with drinks and snacks is an excellent idea and the included continental breakfast in the dining room was spot on. Conveniently located for a very short walk to the centre of town and attractions.

Unique, charming little boutique hotel. Personal touches all the more special as they were on such a small scale. Very close to both the town centre and the gondolas. Parking a little tricky but they went out of their way to make us comfortable 10/10 would recommend.

Great location. Staff were very nice. The 5-6pm drinks a nice touch. Tea, coffee and soft drinks available in the lounge all day. Don't pay for the breakfast if you are a late riser, as often found not much left until they came around to check on it every 5-10 minutes. It was probably one of the most sparse continental breakfasts I have ever seen. So I have lowered my value score as breakfast was a let down if you went down after 9am. So have a tea or coffer in lounge and then go to a bakery.

Stayed here for 3 nights for my honeymoon and would absolutely stay again. The location was ideal (walkable to everything in Queenstown), the rooms were a comfortable size, and the decor was bold and unique. The amenities were also lovely, as the hotel provided wine, coffee, seltzer water and snacks in our room (all locally made) and offered a light happy hour with wine and snacks from 5-6pm each night. The bed was also quite comfortable.

Great boutique hotel in perfect location, walking distance to the waterfront, gondola and all the shops & restaurants! The hotel was lovely, staff was nice and we enjoyed the complimentary happy hour. Breakfast was light continental in a nice room with a view of the mountains. We appreciated the complimentary drinks and snacks in our room upon arrival. Sometimes it took a little looking to find someone if you need help but that was our only bit of improvement. 5/5 would recommend.

Exceptional service with warm, helpful staff! A colourful, fun decor with wonderful rooms with super comfortable beds. Great location - not noisy at night - yet within walking distance to restaurants & shops. We did not take part in happy hour or breakfast as didn’t fit with plans. Excellent , popular breakfast cafe next to property. Would definitely stay here again. Super helpful, friendly hosts! Thanks so much!
