Full accommodation information
Found just steps away from the banks of enchanting Lake Wakatipu, the award-winning Eichardt’s is as much a part of the scenery in Queenstown as the snow-capped tips of the Remarkable Mountains that hem the town.
With an outstanding reputation to match its heritage, Eichardt’s has been welcoming guests for generations; while this town has expanded dramatically over the last 20 years, Eichardt’s Private Hotel has remained one of the region’s most revered places to stay.
Inside, Eichardt’s is a stylish mix of contemporary design, rustic chic and classic country living. Tweeds and leathers, alongside flashlight fittings, open fires and huge windows that make the most of the heart-stopping scenery here, create a feeling of distinguished luxury that permeates throughout the hotel.
When heading to a town that is synonymous with action, the question is not what to do, but what to do first. Eichardt’s can arrange any number of activities for their guests alone. Soar above the mountain range in your private helicopter, have a go at fishing in the pristine waters to the west or take a hike with a knowledgeable guide and get in amongst the wilderness that surrounds this area of New Zealand.
Alternatively, climb onboard Eichardt’s private yacht ‘Pacific Jemm’ and cruise across Lake Wakatipu for the night in uninterrupted tranquillity. Or, if in Queenstown for the ski season, take advantage of Eichardt’s private slopes and revel in some of the best snow there is to offer, away from the crowds; before returning to your hotel for some après ski.
So, whether you are visiting Queenstown in the height of summer and spending your day hiking, or coming to play in the snow and descending from the mountain to warm up next to a crackling fire, one thing is for sure.
If you are looking for an authentic Kiwi welcome, exclusive access to once in a lifetime activities and luxurious surrounds, Eichardt’s Private Hotel is an excellent choice.
Guestrooms at Eichardt’s afford its visitors with superior vistas across the stunning lake and mountains. With suites, apartments and a breath-taking penthouse available, there is sophisticated accommodation here to suit every type of traveller. Wi-Fi, a minibar, an entertainment system and open fires complete this deluxe picture.

Thanks to its unrivalled reputation, Eichardt’s is able to take the cream of the crop when it comes to staff in this hospitality-driven town, so rest assured your experienced concierge will be on hand to make the best recommendations along the way. If working out is high on your agenda, you can pop into Queenstown Gym just down the road for free, and while there is no swimming pool here, the hotel is perched directly on the lakeside so access to the shore is easy; indoors you’ll find a library with DVDs plus a cigar lounge. Be sure to take advantage of the babysitting service on offer and venture out to sample some of Queenstown’s famous nightlife and treat yourself to breakfast in bed the following morning.
Restaurants & Bars
Trendy and oozing typical Kiwi innovation, The Grille serves up cuisine using some of the best ingredients from this primary produce nation. Locally sourced honey drizzled over your yogurt first thing in the morning, salmon straight from the idyllic Stewart Island for lunch and delicious New Zealand lamb in the evening are just some of the treats awaiting you at The Grille, an extra special place to start and end your day.
Mingle with locals or snuggle up by the fire and indulge in tantalising tapas and delectable drinks. An extensive cocktail menu, full bodied ales and a fantastic selection of the wines that this country is so well respected for can all be found here.
Activities & Entertainment
Whatever you choose to do during your visit, the helpful staff at Eichardt’s will make sure you get the best possible service. Take a trip up the gondola for picture postcard views of the town below you, have an adrenaline rush on the Shot Over Jet, or do something that so many people come to Queenstown to do: throw caution to the wind and do a bungy jump! To slow things down, take a tour at one of the local vineyards, play a round of golf or simply wander across to Queenstown Gardens. Popular with tourists and locals alike, this lovely part of town provides a peaceful walk through winding paths by the water, glorious all year round.
