Eichardt's Private Hotel opulent suites invite guests to soak up a sense of quiet before exploring one of the world's truly unique locations. Eichardt's Private Hotel, a 140-year-old Queenstown icon, provides fine accommodation in five luxurious hotel suites in its historic building situated on a premium lakefront at Queenstown's café's heart restaurant precinct, with some of the finest international shopping labels a stroll away. The Hotel reflects contemporary provincial elegance, its modern features in perfect harmony with this New Zealand icon's distinctive antiques and luxurious furnishings.
The hotel suites all feature a super-king bed, fireplace, mini-bar, a dressing room and bathroom with a generous bath and double vanity, separate shower, heated mirror, and floor. Each is fully entertainment and business integrated with personal audiovisual systems and email and internet access. The Hotel's Parlour offers guests the ideal setting for lingering over breakfast, with awe-inspiring views over Lake Wakatipu and the comforting crackle of an open log fire, complimented by overstuffed chairs and sofas against a backdrop of exquisite antiques and objets d'art. Eichardt's sets its standard for gracious, luxury accommodation with the confident strokes and flawless symmetry that is the hallmark of New Zealand designer Virginia Fisher, married seamlessly with every amenity you would expect in a world-class hotel.
Eichardt's Private Hotel Lakefront Cottage, just a few paces away from the central Hotel, offers stunning Lake Wakatipu views and nearby mountain ranges. The Cottage has been designed to blend with the waterfront's historical character, home to Queenstown's oldest original building and a Victorian bathhouse. The Lakefront Cottage comprises two two-bedroom suites and two double suites offering visitors flexible and luxurious accommodation, each with stunning lake and mountain views. World-renowned New Zealander Virginia Fisher masterminded the interior design. The Cottage is perfect for groups, families, and longer-staying guests. The split-level suites are interconnected and can be opened to become an ample single accommodation space or sectioned off for smaller groups.
Each suite is spacious and airy, illuminated with natural light, and upper floor roofs have sunny skylights with electric shutters. A compact and well-equipped kitchen with microwave and hob enable relaxing 'at home' dining or entertainment. Majestic vistas over the lake and mountains and luxuriously appointed amenities give the Lakefront Cottage all the comfort and style of a home-away-from-home.
