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.

Great location, friendly and helpful staff, and comfortable room. The daily happy hour was a nice opportunity to meet other couples visiting from other countries. The hot tub is relaxing and was very nice on a rainy afternoon.

A wonderful welcome from Sacha who showed us to our super comfortable room. No hidden extras as all snacks and soft drinks, tea and coffee were free. A comfortable guest lounge with a happy hour between 5 and 6 every evening, a chance to meet other guests over a glass of wine or beer. Great location just a few minutes walk from Queenstown but peaceful and stylish. Thank you, Sacha for making our last night in NZ so relaxed and memorable

Good location in Queenstown Small and perfectly formed. More like a private house than a hotel. Staff are brilliant, there if you needed them, extremely friendly and efficient. Continental breakfast superb Rooms really comfortable. Happy Hour held every day and guests mingled and chatted - it's that sort of place! Can't recommend highly enough, but can we keep it a secret please :)

Wonderful stay at this boutique hotel on our wedding anniversary during our trip of a lifetime to NZ, Sacha couldn’t have been more welcoming. Beautifully decorated in quirky, eclectic style. Happy hour was a nice touch. Close to restaurants and activities around the lake in Queenstown. You will not be disappointed.

Very handy for town shops, bar’s restaurants etc. The modest outside belies the spacious interior. We had a-great sized room with large ensuite shower. Very comfortable bed and well equipped room with fridge for fresh water, milk etc. Great welcome from Sasha. Happy hour 5-6 freebies wine beer and nibbles chance to say hello to fellow travellers. We didn’t sample breakfast as prefer to eat brunch later. Able to park car on site for $20 a day. Really lovely stay and happily recommend. Tiny issue for us was being on ground floor we had to close blinds as, despite shrubbery, people did look into our room when we were in there relaxing.

Great staff and perfectly situated and within walking distance to so many activities, restaurants and shops. We didn’t take advantage of the breakfast or happy hour, but everyone who did looked happy. Very easy off street parking at the car park just around the corner.
