Boasting unparalleled views of Lake Wakatipu and the majestic Remarkables mountain range, The Dairy Private Hotel is a delightful boutique hotel offering luxury accommodation in the heart of Queenstown. With 13 private ensuite rooms and a 4 bedroom self-contained apartment, this stunning retreat is the perfect getaway for couples or a large group travelling together.

Though downtown Queenstown and its many shops and restaurants are right at your doorstep, The Dairy is an oasis of seclusion and tranquillity. If you feel like exploring, the hotel can arrange scenic tours, food and wine tastings, and exciting outdoor activities to ensure that your stay is as memorable as it can be. 

If you prefer a more relaxed pace, you can spend your days enjoying the delights of this restored 1920s corner dairy store, beginning with the outdoor courtyard with fireplace and a spa pool with spectacular views of the mountains and lake.

Inside you'll find a comfortable lounge where you can mingle with other guests around the fireplace. Or there is the private guest library where you can relish in your peaceful getaway with a good book and a glass of wine. These common areas feature a collection of antiques, rustic textiles, and local photographs that shows the fascinating history of this once bustling corner store.

Dining options are plenty at The Dairy Private Hotel. A glass of wine and freshly baked cookies are provided in your room as a welcome gift. In the morning, find a delicious, complimentary gourmet breakfast ready for you at the restaurant. Or have delectable gourmet platters of local cheeses, sun-dried tomatoes, olives, and other snacks made to order.
