We had a perfect stay. Room was great, location perfect and staff VERY helpful and attentive. Fabulous breakfast. Would stay here again and 100% recommend others to stay. Bubbly on arrival a nice touch and they eagerly stored our bags when we went on a multi-day hike. Love this place, can't wait to return!

The staff at The Dairy could not have been more helpful and accommodating. They made a number of restaurant and winery reservations for us which was so helpful. The property is just steps from the center of town and yet very quiet and restful. It is a nice boutique experience and the rooms are lovely and well appointed. We used...

We stayed at the Dairy for a couple of nights before the Milford Track walk and then on the return. We chose it because of it's rating on Tripadvisor and also because of its proximity to Ultimate Hikes. I was disappointed in it. I was expecting more. The room we had was the same on both stays. It was comfortable...

My wife and I had a fantastic stay at the Dairy on both ends of our Routeburn trek.

We would...

Cozy hotel, spacious rooms with all comforts. Spotless immaculate. Big and comfortable bed with high quality linen. The manager Ulani is very nice and helpful. Great breakfast! Very close to town center and to the gondola. Air conditioned and tea facilities.

This is a difficult review to write. While wanting to rate it with top marks, I can't due to what I think is poor value. Yes, the friendly service and attention from the staff is exemplary, the room comfortable, the location ideal....but the price seems too high for the overall experience. I would also be remiss not to note that...

A five star boutique for this area. Great location but limited parking. Six star staff who can make reservations at local restaurants a little off the grid but with excellent food. Really enjoyed 3 days here. Easy walk to everywhere downtown.

I booked this hotel based on other reviews. The owners and staff made us feel like guests in their own private home. Champagne upon arrival, homemade cookies in the room, any requests and information was readily available. The location is perfect. The room was so cozy and quiet. The breakfast was wonderful with a nice variety of options. I would...
