Eichardt’s Private Hotel

Dating back to the 1866, Eichardt’s Private Hotel has a fascinating history. Today it features five stunning hotel suites, four boutique apartments and a peaceful private lakeside residence, all designed by the internationally renowned Virgina Fisher. Located directly on the shore of Lake Wakatipu in the heart of Queenstown, the hotel boasts marvellous mountain and lake views. Close to designer boutiques and the city’s restaurant precinct, this is a spectacular lakeside retreat.

A fabulous mix of antiques and contemporary elegance, the overall atmosphere here is one of sophistication and warmth. Tastefully decorated, the suites are extremely spacious with fireplaces and stunning views across Lake Wakatipu. Eichardt’s Bar is most welcoming and serves inspiring dishes throughout the day.

The scenery around Queenstown is awe inspiring. To get a bird’s eye view, take the gondola up Bob’s Peak for an astounding panorama. This is also an adventure seeker’s dream with a variety of adventure sports and cultural events to enjoy in the area throughout the year. In the evening, relax with cocktails and tapas in Eichardt's Private Hotel Bar or enjoy the new contemporary restaurant, The Grille.
