Amazing views with great service. The staff were helpful and approachable. Wonderful experience. We thoroughly enjoyed the tapas served at the bar on those couple of nights we were there. The Grille also served delicious ala carte breakfast. Highly recommended.

We stayed over Christmas and it was very expensive. Our suite promised a mountain view but unfortunately it looked keep right into a roof top bar/restaurant so we had to keep our curtains closed.

We stayed here four nights. Had a wonderful time in the Queenstown area: beautiful lake; many nearby wineries; lots of activities in the area; interesting central area with lots of shops and some very good restaurants. The hotel was a great place to stay. It's right on the lake with spectacular views but nearby all the shops and dining establishments....

The site of one of the first hotels in Queenstown, Eichardt's Private Hotel is historic with a newly renovated modern flair. The decor is gorgeous throughout the property which is intimate with fewer than 10 rooms. The general manager hosts a lovely wine tasting each evening with delicious canapes in a cozy sitting room upstairs. Our room 5 was well...

Right at the heart of the charming,fun lakeside town, Eichardts is a luxury boutique hotel with fabulously comfortable and attractive rooms - we stayed in a Lakeview Suite- and a small group of staff who cater to your every need.

This is the place for a special occasion. We splurged for my wife's birthday and stayed in one of the lakeview suites. Outstanding, my wife came to tears when we walked into the room.

Our room was the stunning suite with lake view. No noise from the street to hear even the room is right next to it. Big comfortable bed. Beautiful interior, very classy. Recommending for romantic couples holidays and luxury. Staff very helpful in recommending local activities and restaurants. Beautiful historic building.
