Historic and iconic to Queenstown, Eichardt’s Private Hotel is a sophisticated retreat full of splendour and indulgence. Nestled along Lake Wakatipu, the incredible views of glistening lake and soaring mountains will certainly take your breath away.
Eichardt’s Private Hotel dates back to New Zealand’s gold rush days, and the interior designers were clearly inspired by its original stately-home style. The Lake View and Mountain View suites are utterly charming, whilst the Lakefront Apartments adopt a more boutique, contemporary feel.
Walk a few steps away from the main hotel and you’ll find The Residence and The Penthouse, two truly indulgent properties which have access to all of Eichardt’s facilities. The Residence is three-levels of old-style glamour, whilst the Penthouse suite is much more modern, and is home to Queenstown’s largest private terrace.
Open since 1867, it’ll come as no surprise that Eichardt’s Bar is a favourite with the locals. With cosy sofas and fireplaces, and a huge range of timeless cocktails and divine tapas, this is the perfect spot for pre-dinner drinks. Once you’ve worked up an appetite, wander along to The Grille for decadent grilled dishes paired with fine-dining finesse.
Eichardt’s Private Hotel is perched along the edge of Lake Wakatipu, offering views of sparkling waters, towering mountains, and Queenstown Bay. The Residence and Penthouse are only a few steps away from the main hotel.
