Eichardt's Private Hotel

Eichardt's Private Hotel

Eichardt’s opulent suites invite guests to soak up a sense of quiet before exploring one of the world’s truly remarkable locations. Eichardt’s, a 140-year-old Queenstown icon, provides fine accommodation in five luxurious hotel suites in its historic building situated on a premium lakefront position at Queenstown’s café's heart restaurant precinct, with some of the finest international shopping labels an easy 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 and mini-bar, a dressing room and bathroom with generous bath and double vanity, separate shower, heated mirror, and floor. Each one 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 own 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 Lakefront Cottage, just a few paces away from the main 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 a large 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 enables 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. At the same time, guests enjoy full use of all Eichardt’s Hotel facilities, including concierge services, literally just a few steps away.

Completing the Eichardt's collection is The Residence, a fully self-contained villa property with three bedrooms over three levels just a few minutes walk from the main hotel building. Beautifully appointed, The Residence is a home away from home. Fully serviced by the hotel with housekeeping and concierge assistance makes a family getaway something special. The Residence enjoys glorious views over Lake Wakatipu and The Remarkables mountain range.

Queenstown’s premier lakefront address offers a welcoming and stylish environment for sampling mouth-watering creations and timeless cocktails. Eichardt’s renowned House Bar, with its comfortable sofas, cozy fireplace, and gracious service, provides an inviting atmosphere to enjoy premium cocktails and some of the area’s very finest cuisine. The House Bar, a Queenstown icon since 1867, has a genuine atmosphere, history, and ambiance unlike anywhere else in the world, offering a welcoming environment for comfortable interaction between guests of the Hotel and some of Queenstown’s most colorful characters. Here, cocktails are created by top New Zealand bartenders who incorporate years of experience and passion into every drink. Eichardt’s attentive House Bar team is always ready to serve with a welcoming smile, good humor, and an utterly professional and knowledgeable manner.

Eichardt’s signature lunch dishes, tapas, and breakfast menus feature fresh and organic produce sourced from the very best local growers. Eichardt’s chefs have built a loyal following for consistently delicious and always inspiring dishes. The House Bar oozes the warmth, comfort, and style of this beautiful old hotel with amazing lake views and mountains. Its sumptuous setting will make any occasion feel that little bit more special.
