This is the place to stay when visiting Queenstown.... Couldn't fault a thing, from our first impression of the hotel as we drove up to the well thought out decor in our room, simply exquisite... Not to mention the incredible views....

We were greeted by fabulous and attentive staff, who maintained a professional and friendly service level throughout our stay. The drink on arrival and welcoming by the General Manager was a nice touch.

The hotel is centrally located in the best spot, handy to all the restaurants, however you really should check out what the hotel is serving up in the bar, yummy tapas and great selection of drinks..... made leaving hard to do.......

Dear Alison A
Thank you for your review on Tripadvisor, the staff and I appreciate your feedback and I was pleased to read you enjoyed your Eichardt's experience. We are officially launching our new Courtyard area in the first week of November leading up to our 10th birthday celebrations during the first week of December – very exciting for everyone involved at Eichardt’s. Perhaps you would also be interested in spending New Year’s Eve in Queenstown – we will be hosting a cocktail function in the parlour to celebrate in style – I would encourage you to book early as I am sure it will be a fantastic night. I do hope you are able to join us for the celebrations! We all look forward to seeing you again at Eichardt’s

Kind Regards
Chris McIntosh

Recently stayed for a weekend getaway at this beautiful boutique hotel which is perfectly located right in the heart of Queenstown. The view from our room was breathtaking - looking straight out over the lake. The room was very warm with a comfortable bed and a generous size bathroom with His and Hers sinks. Staff were very courteous, professional and helpful. Would defiantly stay again.

Dear Quashee

Thank you for your feedback of Eichardt’s Private Hotel. The views from the hotel are certainly breathtaking – I take a moment each day to soak the views in as we are certainly in the most amazing location on Queenstown’s waterfront. It was great to read you enjoyed your suite. Designed to be timeless and elegant with an unique character that is enchanting and enveloping, our suites are very generous at over 70sqm each. I appreciate you taking the time to write a review and we look forward to welcoming you again at Eichardt’s

Kind Regards

My partner and I recently returned from our first trip to the South Island, we finished our journey in Queenstown and treated ourselves with a wonderful stay at Eichardt's Private Hotel. I would recommend this property to everyone visiting, not only is it in the best location and central to everything, the views from our room was incredible, not to mention the equisite room itself.

From the minute we got there, we were greeted by attentive, fantastic staff, and the personalised warm welcome from the General Manager, just made us feel so special. Nothing was too much trouble.....

We dined in the bar, enjoying great tapas food and some heavenly wine, it was hard to leave the hotel and go anywhere else, so most dining experiences in Queenstown was done at the hotel.

We are planning another visit to Queenstown next year, definately staying here at Eichardt's... don't change a thing Mr McIntosh, you have the right mix for well travelled people like us.

Dear ali_a

Thank you for your kind review; it was a pleasure to meet you both during your recent stay with us at Eichardt’s Private Hotel. The staff and I were pleased to read you felt welcome – it is our aim to ensure every guest feels relaxed and comfortable at the hotel. Hopefully you have the opportunity to experience Milford Sound with Choppy @ Over The Top – I personally recommend it! Or perhaps a personalised tour of Mt Edward Winery with our Sommelier.
We look forward to seeing you again next year at Eichardt’s when you return to Central Otago and I would be more than happy to reserve the same Lake View Suite again for your or perhaps try a Mountain View Suite or one of our Lakefront Apartments.

Kind Regards
Chris McIntosh

Eichardts is a fabulous hotel. It's more like a luxurious home than a hotel. The rooms are appointed to a very high standard and it was hard to leave and explore Queenstown. The staff service was friendly and very professional. Nothing was too much trouble. From breakfast in the parlour to tappas in the small bar, Eichardts is a fantastic experience.

Dear Short-e-931

Thank you for your review on tripadvisor, the staff and I appreciate your feedback and I was pleased to read you enjoyed your Eichardt's experience. Now that Spring is upon us, it is the perfect opportunity to warm up in front of the roaring log fire in Eichardt's Bar, curl up on a cosy sofa in one of our spacious hotel suites or lakefront apartments, or relax in the parlour in pure opulence after a day spent exploring our stunning region. A retreat from the hussle and bussle of Queenstown. Signs of new life are abundant throughout the region. We look forward to seeing you at Eichardt’s again soon.

Kind Regards
Chris McIntosh
