This boutique hotel is the nicest I have stayed in. The service was very personalized and nothing was too much trouble. The rooms are beautiful and if you are looking for a romantic weekend or night, this is your place!

Eichardt's was a fabulous private hotel. We stayed in a 3 bedroom unit that was just perfect for our family. I highly recommend this hotel. The view is spectacular. We came from the one and only in Great Barrier Reef and we are at one and only in wolgan valley now and Eichardts is equally as special.

Thank you for your review. The hotel is staffed 24 hours a day, with a night butler on duty from 10:00 am through until 07:00 am. From time to time they are called away to guest suites to attend to issues, or delivering room service from the 24 hour menu. They have even gone to lengths of collecting all night... More

We stayed in Eichardt's for 2 days in March and had an incredible experience. It is a very small hotel with a lot of charm. The service was great and our room was absolutely stunning, overlooking the harbor. The bar downstairs has great food and drinks... the seafood chowder was probably some of the best that I have ever had.... More

Thank you for your review, it was our pleasure to have you with us last month. The location is absolutely superb and the outlook over lake Wakatipu and surrounding mountains is wonderful. Matched with beautiful décor and thoughtful service, its the perfect combination of New Zealand charm and international luxury standards. We hope to see you with us again soon.... More

We stayed at Eichardt's for two nights this March. The location was perfect and the staff were super friendly. We really enjoyed breakfast and happy hour in the bar. The views from our balcony were magnificent. Everything was within easy walking distance. A couple small things prevented a 5 star review but are easily fixable. The fireplace unfortunately was not... More

Thank you for your review following your recent stay, I am glad you enjoyed your time with us.

Wonderful stay at this updated, vintage and intimate hotel. The location at the water front with a short walk to everything including the Botswana Butchery can't be beat. The staff is very attentive. We arrived after 10 PM, due to our flight being rerouted, the kitchen was closed but since we had not had dinner a waitress went out and... More

Amazing experience at what must be new Zealand's best hotel, we loved every minute of it and have stayed in a few of the best hotels around. This was special, from the welcome of the manager to the little toiches in our suite, hand written cards, hand made chocolates by the bed, complimentary whisky lounge, I could go on! Thanks... More

We stayed at Eichardts from 2-6 February 2015 in a lakeside suite. The hotel location is excellent but the suite we were allocated was overlooked by people walking along the pavement outside.We could overhear conversation from an adjoining room. The restaurant facilities are in a bar area and are somewhat limited in the context of this hotel's 5 star designation.... More
