As part of our local dinner club outing, we enjoyed an amazing 10 course tapas meal, every single plate was outstanding, though my favourite may have been the seafood chowder, best I have ever eaten! Our waiter was lovely, very attentive and looked after us all very well. Ive never eaten in the upstairs dining lounge before and was impressed... More

Eichardt’s Private Hotel is the poshest lakefront hotel in town.

Oozing five-star luxe from the moment I arrived, the building exudes exclusivity, an opulent country-style manor with a contemporary blend of stonewalls,... More

As expected this hotel offers a very high standard of accommodation and service. My husband and I stayed in the 1 bedroom Suite right next door to the Botswana Butchery Restaurant. The view from the lounge window is stunning, it encompasses a 360 degree view of the Lake. The fixtures and fittings are of a high quality, although you can... More

We splurged and stayed 2 nights at Eichardt's and loved every second of it. Treated like royalty from start to finish, but also like part of the family which is nice at such an amazing place. Every request was met with a smile and nothing was too much trouble, changing activity bookings, organising special wines, personal extras at turndown (handmade... More

Thank you for your review Alana, so glad you enjoyed your Queenstown break - I love your photos, great colours in Autumn.

Wait staff was absolutely amazing! Would marry all of those lovely girls if I could. Keep up the good work. Venue is perfect for a quiet drink and a nice catch up with friends. By far one of the best little bars in Queenstown!

Thanks for your review Yavann, see you again soon for dinner! If you do end up bringing the kids in, they have their own menu with loads of nice options, as well as modifying the regular tapas menu to suit if we can. See you again soon, James More

This hotel is easily Queenstown's most luxurious. Absolutely stunning suites, beautifully appointed with every amenity and luxurious interiors. Stayed here for a weekend and did not want to leave, the staff are warm and service unobtrusive. We will definitely be back, thanks Jackie and the team!

This is my idea of the perfect hotel - small and beautifully appointed - I coveted all the furnishings. The tapas bar is wonderful - five stars for food and ambience. I had an apple martini that I still think about. Service was charming, easy and unobtrusive. Would love to go back
