We had the most amazing stay at eichardts,both my partner and i had heard so much about this private hotel,and how it had recently experienced new owners. We were blowen away by the service and the amazing rooms with a view, simply spectacular! The tapas in the ground floor bar,in particular the seafood chowder were to die for!

Thanks Chris, glad you enjoyed your stay with us last week. Now that winter here, Eichardt's suites are without doubt the cosiest luxury suites in Queenstown and make it hard to leave!

We loved this gorgeous boutique hotel with its prime location overlooking the lake and in the heart of the town. It is pricey but you get a high level of service and luxury for what you pay. We were upgraded to a spacious, luxurious suite overlooking the lake. Fabulous space with a contemporary fit-out and much appreciated fire place. Fruit... More

This sophisticated, boutique hotel is located right in the heart of Queenstown and is truly the best location you could possibly ask for. We had a breathtaking view from our elegantly decorated room overlooking the lake. It was a spacious suite that combined a classic feel with a contemporary twist. The fire place and beautiful decor made for such a... More

This is our second visit to Eichardts. Both times we stayed in a 2 bed apartment for 7 nights. The rate included breakfast and a pre-dinner drink. Eichardts markets itself to be up there with high end boutique hotels around the world. In terms of comparative value it cost our family of 4 more to stay at Eichardts than The... More

Thank-you Simon and the team at Eichardt's for a truly indulgent 3 night stay. We arrived to a warm personal greeting and tour of the hotel facilities and our room.

We had a suite overlooking the lake which was a view you could not tire to waking up to each morning. A very cosy, almost cottage style hotel where you couldn't be made to feel more welcome. Everything was done without fuss and bookings for sightseeing or restaurants made in the time it took to walk from reception to your... More

Sadly we didn't stay at the hotel (out of our price range) but visited the bar and was wonderful. Design was great, roaring fire - perfect for those chilly days walking around Queenstown, comfy sofas and prompt service. The bar had great spirits and wine lists and a wide selection of cocktails to suit all. I could have spent the... More

My wife and I arrived following a long and wet journey throughout the South Island over the previous 5 days. This hotel is lovely...! The main lake suite (No 1) was an amazing design delight.

Thanks for your review, so glad you enjoyed your time with us.

Stayed in their Lakefront Apartments which are right next door to the Botswana Butchery restaurant. Superbly located and even better in the design, a true luxury retreat away from home for the discerning traveller.
