About the hotel
PLEASE NOTE: WE CANNOT ACCEPT PAYMENT BY CARD. CASH OR CHEQUE ONLY. The Old Dairy is a fine old house dating back to the 17th century and is situated on the High Street in the picturesque market town of Olney.
The house has had an eventful history having been substantially rebuilt in 1779 after a fire which devastated much of Olney (burnt timbers and stonework can still be seen today). It has been two public houses, the Bell and the Two Coopers and most recently the town's dairy. The house has been refurbished to modern standards but still retains much character from a bygone age. The proprietors, Nigel and Jane Gregory, having many years experience in the hotel trade, realised the need for short term, fully serviced, self catering accommodation in the area. They have converted of an old barn in the courtyard at the rear of their home into two, luxury, self contained, studio apartments. Providing a cost effective alternative to hotel accommodation for business people and tourists alike. The Old Dairy offers high standards of decor, furnishing, and comfort. The apartments are fully equipped and provide serviced accommodation for guests wishing to stay tone or more nights. The Old Dairy is a non-smoking establishment. Kitchen area equipped with microwave, hotplates, refrigerator, utensils and crockery. Living area includes desk / dressing table, dining facilities, double bed, easy chairs, television.

Exactly what I needed
I needed a quiet place to stay prior to an important event.
This was delightfully exactly what I needed. The accommodation is very cleverly planned, is spotlessly clean and was utterly restful. Nigel is both very welcoming and efficient which was very welcome. As with other reviewers I was pleased to find cereals, coffee, tea and fresh milk in the accommodation. Having accessible and secure private parking was another bonus. But what struck me most was the feeling that the accommodation had been planned by people with experience of living in hotels and out of suitcases and deciding what this kind of frequent traveller needs - a home from home, privacy and flexibility. Utterly lovely. Perfect choice for me.
The Old Dairy was a delightful place to stay.
It had everything we needed. The accommodation was clean and spacious and we enjoyed a relaxing evening sitting in the lovely courtyard garden.
