A great location in Queenstown close to all the shops and restaruants, a room with an unobstructed view of the lake, a large and luxuriously room with a fireplace in the sitting room, and attentive and proactive service. Stayed here on my first two night in Queenstown (and indeed NZ ) and it was a great way to start.

Boutique, luxurious and picturesque hotel with fantastic attention to detail in the rooms. Ideal location with spectacular scenery of the lake at your front window. Great service, nice cocktails and reasonable food for this small town. Definitely recommend this as the place to stay in Queenstown, don't miss out!

After a busy, stressful week at work, we arrived late into Queenstown on Friday night for a weekend at Eichardt's Private Hotel. We'd not stayed before but friends had recommended the location as a ideal for a luxurious mini-break and we'd enjoyed meals in the grill on other visits to Queenstown. The welcome at the reception was delightful, the suite...

This hotel is THE place to stay in Queenstown. You are right in the heart of the city - walking distance to everything - and you get the absolute best views of Lake Wakatipu. If you can swing a lake-facing room, do it. You won't regret it! Also loved that every room had a fireplace. The only complaint I could...

Perfectly located on the lake at Queenstown, Eichardt's Private Hotel offers a great base for exploring the region,they also offer free parking for their guests which is at a premium in Queenstown. Having said that, the food was less than standard for the quality of food we experienced at Botzwana Butchery, Sasso, Fish bone and at the local wineries. Be...

We stayed at the EIchardt's Residence located a short walk from the hotel and set over three levels facing the Queenstown Bay. There were two couples and we both had lovely rooms on the second floor. The main floor had a laundry room, kitchen, dining area, TV/couch area and a bathroom. The kitchen was stocked with fresh food each day...

We had a wonderful stay at Eichardt's. The room was very well appointed and the hotel is in a great location. We were able to walk to everything. The view from our room looked over a beautiful lake with mountains in the background. I would highly recommend a visit to this amazing hotel.
