Reviewed 2 May 2012

We stayed at Eichardt's for 4 nights and it was nothing short of sensational. The hotel is located in the best position in Queenstown and with the most amazing view to wake up to each day. It was starting to get cold so we had a fire in our room each morning and night. The rooms were spacious and made you feel that you were in a house with well thought out interiors. The staff were like family and were keen to provide advice when needed. The highlight was certainly the seafood chowder on a cold afternoon washed down with the Mount Edward 'Eichhards' pinot in front of the fire watching over the beautiful lake. Although this is boutique accommodation with boutique pricing, we felt it was worth every cent. We feel like this is a well hidden secret that we need to tell the world about. The hotel and its location are one of the best in the world!

Room Tip: I think every room is a good room because the accommodation is so boutique and small they get the be...

We stayed at Eichardts for three nights and loved the friendly atmosphere. We ate tapas each night at their cosy bar which was delicious. The comfortable spacious rooms were luxurious with elegant decor. We can't praise the staff enough for their friendliness. Nothing was too much trouble. The location was perfect as it was in walking distance to everything. We highly recommend Eichardts as the place to stay in Queenstown.

My wife and I stayed two nights at Eichardt’s. A wonderful experience, a place to come back to! Everything from the welcome at arrival to the farewell at departure was nice. The first mojito in the bar was to Amercian, to much ice and to little rum, but after having explained my wish to the barman on of the most fabulous mojitos I have ever had was served. The recommendations for places to eat and where to play golf all were spot on and not necessarily the most expensive around, but very spot on as recommendations. The room in which we stayed with a view over the lake was very nice, very cosy, almost inviting to not leave the room but just enjoy and relax. If anyone ask me where to stay in Queenstown Eichardt’s would be the answer. MOL

I had the great pleasure to enjoy an evening at Eichardt's Private Hotel, from the warm hospitable welcome, and ever attentive team, warm homely accommodations and sumptuous beds, this hotel was superb. The tapas menu in the bar made for the perfect end to the day, and I haven't even commented on all that Queenstown has to offer. I would highly recommend Eichardt's Private Hotel.

Eichardt's is small and in located at the centre of Queenstown, right by the lake. We have stayed there three times. and it is one of the best, and friendliest, hotels on the planet. We are fussy and have been in many great hotels, but Eichardt's is a true NZ jewel.

Room Tip: If we told you the best room it might not be available for us next time.
