Eichardt’s Private Hotel
Situated on the shores of Lake Wakatipu in the heart of Queenstown’s village is Eichardt’s Private Hotel. Hugely historical with a past both rich and intriguing, Eichardt’s is, to this day, a New Zealand institution. An old meeting place for those seeking gold, the fortunes, misfortunes and missed fortunes were relayed between the very same walls you will stay in.
With 4 Lakefront Cottage Suites and 5 luxurious Hotel Suites, staying at Eichardt’s will be a highlight in itself. With beautifully modern features, stunning rooms and that
all-important warm southern feel, you can walk out your door, see the TSS Earnslaw steaming its way to Walter Peak Station and feel the essence of this ‘goldrush’ town.
With its superb parlour dating back to 1867, having a drink here is an experience not to be missed. With some of the region's most colourful personalities being almost part of the furniture, sit back, stare out at the view, nibble on some tapas and simply listen. You will come away feeling like one of the locals.
