"Amazing Location and Boutique Hotel Perfection" Eichardt's Private Hotel leaves you not wanting to return home. If you are travelling with a family, the hotel also offers luxury 2 or 3 bedroom apartments. The apartments are amazing and are located in the heart of Queenstown, with stunning lake views. The apartments have the charm of a cottage by the lake and every detail you could ever place on your wish-list has been thoughtfully planned out and put into place for your total comfort. The staff are on hand 24 hours for anything you may need and are extremely helpful in any request no matter how big or small. The staff at this hotel are incredible and we can't thank them enough for all their help during our stay. This is our 2nd visit to this hotel and we have already planned our return stay again for next years ski season. If you are looking for an amazing hotel in Queenstown, then look no further. This is one of those hotels that makes your holiday experience even better than you can possibly imagine. I will write a more detailed review later in the week and I will also include some beautiful pictures from our 3 bedroom apartment. This hotel really make you love your hotel stay as much as your holiday location ...... Another amazing stay at this stunning hotel. A huge thank-you to the team at Eichardt's.......The Testa Family will be back again next year.......

Just had our third stay at this unique property .... and please to report the amazingly high standards have been maintained .... it's truely a gem and worth every penny . The room, service and food down stairs is hard to fault . My favourite hotel by far in QT!

Lake view suite with a spectacular uninterrupted view up Lake Wakatipu to the snow covered mountains and the busy lake front tourist area. Great fit out, fireplace and all the trappings of a luxury boutique hotel. Service was OK with very friendly staff. Lived up to its 5 stars - just.

We recently stayed at the Residence for a short stay, a 3 floor apartment with incredible views atop a hill overlooking the lake!.. first time in Queenstown, but didn't want to leave. Special thanks to the fantastic Concierges at Eichardt....Chelsea, Adriana and Elsa!

Eichartds is without a doubt the most unique and luxurious hotel i have had the pleasure of experiencing. It all starts from the moment you are collected from the airport in a black Range Rover and whisked to the lake-front location. The location could not get any more central in one of New Zealand's prettiest towns. The staff are warm, friendly and fully knowledgeable on everything Queenstown. My room with it's uber-cool period styled furnishings and ambience were very special and the smell classy and welcoming. It simply doesnt get any better.....

The location is probably the best you could ask for if you are in Queenstown for a short period of time, the views are breathtaking. The arrival was effortlessly easy, as we just parked the car at the front and the staff came to collect luggage as well as the car. Then we were walked into the building having a good look around at the beautiful interiors and well thought attention to detail where art, antique furniture and vintage ornaments just tied everything up to make the experience even more authentic for those who know the history of the building. Our room was magnificent, (suite II) with the beautiful water front view, the fireplace, the beautiful furniture added to the warm feel to make us feel like home. All the amenities in the room are of the best quality of products. There is a pillow menu that I didn't need to use, as luckily the standard pillows on the bed were as I like them, but it is fantastic to know there is more to chose from if required. The turn down of the room could improve if I have to get picky, but they surely set the tone making the room feel cozy when we came back after supper. We were encourage to join drinks in this beautiful common area where other guest gather to get to meet each other and share experiences. Both host Lauren and Adam which I had the opportunity to speak with, were very knowledgeable about the history and surrounds of the hotel and Queenstown and was very enjoyable chatting to both of them. Room service was great, as well as the Eichardt's Bar were breakfast is normally served and were we enjoy our lunch too - as well suggested by one of the staff members, the Eichardt's chowder is a must while you are there, it is absolutely delicious as well as the rest of the menu. Fortunately, on the last day, we had the opportunity to have lunch at The Grille, which was also really great, showcasing the best of the produce that Queenstown has to offer. Over all, our whole experience was amazing and we are very looking forward to going back and hopefully try the Residence, Penthouse or Appartments next time. Thanks again to all the staff members to make our stay so special.

Such a wonderful first time stay in Queenstown situated in the 'royal circle' of downtown locations, overlooking Lake Wakatipu. Our suite with lake & snow capped mountain views was so comfortable & the service was faultless. We thoroughly enjoyed our meals in both the bar & grille, the famous seafood chowder is 'a must'! I just want to do it ALL again this weekend...

My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The room (suite 1) was gorgeous and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. The restaurant recommendations were spot on and they even organised for our ski hire to be delivered and then taken away when we were finished skiing. A great experience, thank you!

Breakfast only! Please note we did breakfast only... on our last day after booking out of an air BNB we ventured for a final brunch and were attracted by the old style building and cosy looking interior. Inside is small and cosy and importantly on a very cold morning had a lovely fire place. Breakfast was yummy and classy. Great place!

This hotel pleased us in every way! We stayed in Suite #1 and it was beautifully decorated with a sumptuous fur on the bed and fresh flowers on the fireplace mantle. It's location in downtown Queenstown made it convenient to shopping and restaurants and our view of the lake and mountains could not have been more perfect. The staff at Eichardt's are extremely courteous and helpful with suggestions for anything that might interest you. My husband and I were there to move our son from America to attend college and they were helpful with these details which went above and beyond the normal concierge duties. We enjoy drinking a large pot of coffee in our room in the mornings and that was a bit of a challenge for the morning crew. Some days we got 2 small pots, some days we got multiple cups, I think once we got a large press, but always promptly and cheerfully delivered. The breakfast menu in the restaurant was not extensive and the food was good but not great. Other than that, the hotel was among the best we've ever visited.
