I really enjoyed staying at Eichartds because the staff were very kind and welcoming.One blonde girl stood out because she was cheery and happy to see us.
The tapas is beautiful if you are just in the mood for being a bit peckish. The lunch has an amazing range of wonderful foods.
For me the breakfast is absolutely beautiful!
The rooms are spectactular.
I will be back!!

Room Tip: Ask for a lakefront apartment update or a room with a nice view.

Thank you for your review of Eichardt’s Private Hotel and Lakefront Apartments. I was pleased to see you had a great experience with us, and that you received excellent service. I am glad you loved the view from the apartments – it truly is a unique and exclusive setting with views to Queenstown Bay, the Gardens, and surrounding mountain ranges whilst not being too far into town to be affected by noise.

We had a lovely trip to New Zealand; a highlight was staying at the Eichardt's Private Hotel in Queenstown. Our family (2 adults, 2 children ages 7 and 9) stayed in one of the 'apartments' a short walk from the main (5 room) hotel. It was perfect for us: 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a nice spacious family room with kitchenette. Every amenity provided. Our balcony looked directly across Lake Wakatipu to the stunning mountains; directly below we could observe our boys playing in the grassy area adjacent the beach. Every staff member treated us with the utmost attention and service; no request too big or too small. You are unlikely to find a bargain staying here, but it's a wonderful splurge. Enjoy their delicious private-labeled Mount Edward Pinot Noir, and be SURE to eat next door at the Botswana Butchery!

Dear Sandra W

Thank you for providing us with feedback regarding your experience at Eichardt’s Private Hotel. We were pleased to see that you enjoyed your staff, and
I would suggest on your next stay trying our “Eichardt’s Garden Tea Party” – a high afternoon tea in our courtyard, or make sure you try a stay in our lakefront apartments – they offer a great alternative to our hotel suites and still have fabulous views over the lake and mountains.
We look forward to seeing you next time at Eichardt’s
