Eichardt’s Private Hotel has been a prominent establishment in the city for over 150 years, born from the gold rush period that began in 1862. Boasting a rich and vibrant history, much of the hotel’s heritage has been preserved and Eichardt’s stands today as a pinnacle of contemporary luxury accommodation.

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 heritage wing offers five Lake View King Suites overlooking Lake Wakatipu and two Mountain Suites with views of the gondola. Adjacent are four Lakefront Apartments (with the option to interconnect for small groups) and within a five-minute walk is a three-bedroom Residence Villa, all with fabulous views over Lake Wakatipu.


Select from a collection of seven luxurious Suites, four comfortably appointed Apartments, The Residence and The Penthouse situated in premium lakefront positions in the heart of Queenstown.
