I loved every minute of our five night stay at this fabulous hotel. The hotel is beautiful, the rooms luxurious and the location -- right in the middle of town -- is perfect. The staff attends to every detail and I especially appreciated the helpful concierge service. We arrived at the hotel after a day of travel from Wellington to...

We stayed for 5 days in late April and I had actually changed my holiday dates so I could stay in this Hotel based on the great reviews. We were not disappointed from the moment we arrived till the time we left. With the ambiance of the building and of course the amazing position we found that we spent more...

Excellent location, right on the waterfront. Amenities were wonderful. Two restaurants, one on site, one off. Both were good. Even though the hotel is the Oldest building in Queenstown the hotel and the rooms were spotless . The staff members were very professional and friendly. They are expanding next door, however the construction did not interfere with the hotels atmosphere....

and that's even before we mention the fabulous staff of Eichardt's. Our suite was quite large with a great fireplace, view out onto the lake, very nice sized bath and dressing room and large bedroom. The stay was five nights in mid-April, all of which were absolutely great. From welcome at the front door, to tapas and drinks in the...

My wife and I visited Eichardt's in March. We had a beautiful room facing the lake. The room had a living room with a fireplace and a separate wet bar. The bathroom had heated towel racks and everything you would expect from a top rated boutique hotel. At the present time it has only 10 rooms, but an expansion was...

Thank you for your review, we are delighted you enjoyed your time with us in Queenstown.

Great little hotel in the centre of Queenstown. Having also stayed at some of the luxury lodges just outside Queenstown, we would choose Eichardt's most of the time and for repeat visits. Not as secluded or private obviously, but there is so much to do in Queenstown itself that you would want to spend some nights in town. Rooms are...

Expensive, but the location can't be beat. Directly on the waterfront in the center of town with amazing views over the lake to the mountains. Top notch staff. We stayed in room 1 which has a private balcony overlooking the lake. Bar/restaurant is small and frequently overcrowded but Eichardts is building a new wing with a new bar/restaurant so that...

We thoroughly enjoyed Eichardt's. The staff, especially the lovely Canadian woman who picked us up at the airport, is wonderful. All are well organized, warm, welcoming and a pleasure to be around.
