Eichardts Private Hotel, Queenstown, South Island, New Zealand

New Zealand’s most exclusive lakefront address, Eichardts sets its own standard for gracious, luxury accommodation incorporating historic charm with its unrivalled setting on the shores of Lake Wakatipu.

​Located in a premium lakefront position, this 140-year-old icon epitomises sophisticated elegance with its crackling fires and antiques yet remains in complete harmony with its contemporary-chic style, lovingly created by renowned interior designer, Virginia Fisher.

Five luxurious suites have stunning views, a super-king bed, fireplace and luxurious bathroom, while the four-bedroom, four-bathroom Lakefront Cottage, a few paces from the hotel, is a welcome addition for larger parties.

​The beauty and alpine splendour of Queenstown creates a destination where you can be as adventurous or relaxed as you choose, there are countless things to do and the team are there to make it happen.

The house bar menu includes signature lunch dishes, tapas, and breakfast menus featuring fresh and organic produce sourced from the very best local growers as well as an award-winning wine list with a huge range of world-class Otago favourites (be sure to try Mt Edward's fantastic Pinot Noir – exclusively made for Eichardt's Bar).
