Eichardt’s opulent suites invite guests to relax in the lap of boutique luxury before exploring the pretty alpine town of Queenstown and its surrounds, one of the world’s truly remarkable locations on Lake Wakatipu, ringed with mountains. For those seeking pure indulgence, few places compare with Eichardt’s on the lakefront in beautiful Queenstown. An historic landmark dating back to New Zealand’s gold rush days and located in the centre of this vibrant alpine town, the monumental building was originally built as a woolshed in 1859. Its owner soon found himself in the middle of the gold rush frenzy and adapted it to a hotel in order to benefit from the hoards of travellers seeking their fortunes.
Through time, Eichardt’s has been totally transformed and now has boutique shops on the ground floor and exclusive romantic suites for guests on the top floor. Eichardt’s has recently added a wonderful lake front cottage to its portfolio, offering a more family-friendly set up with self-contained one, two or three-bedroom suites with the most incredible views over Lake Wakatipu. Eichardt’s has been sympathetically renovated to retain its character while providing up to date facilities and the atmosphere is one of sophistication and warmth, cleverly mixing antique and contemporary elegance.
Eichardt’s five luxurious Hotel Suites all have a super-king size bed, a fireplace, a mini bar, a dressing room and a generous bathroom as well as personal audio visual systems and internet access. The Lakefront Cottage is home to four two-bedroom suites, offering visitors flexible accommodation each with stunning lake and mountain views. These split level suites can interconnect to join groups and families or can be kept as smaller units. Each has a compact kitchen and plenty of entertaining space.
Lake View Suites
Expansive views over Lake Wakatipu, super king beds and personal living space featuring a fireplace and deluxe mini bar. The suites offer a dressing room and bathroom with generous bath and double vanity, separate shower, heated mirror and floor, along with an integrated entertainment system and business desk with complimentary WiFi.
Mountain View Suites
Expansive views over Queenstown and surrounding peaks, super king beds and personal living space featuring a fireplace and deluxe mini bar. The suites offer a dressing room and bathroom with generous bath and double vanity, separate shower, heated mirror and floor, along with integrated entertainment system and business desk with complimentary WiFi.
The apartments are a short walk away from the hotel (approx. 75 meters) and are perfect for larger parties, families, professionals and long-stay guests. The split-level apartments are interconnected and can become a large single accommodation space, or sectioned off for smaller groups. Majestic vistas over Lake Wakatipu and surrounding mountains and luxurious amenities give the Lakefront Apartments all the comfort and style of a home-away-from-home, while guests enjoy full use of all Eichardt’s Hotel facilities, including concierge services, literally just a few steps away.
The Penthouse adorns the top of the brand new Eichardt’s building and enjoys uninterrupted views across Lake Wakatipu to the snow-capped mountains beyond. With 240m2 of spacious living areas, indoor and outdoor kitchens, two large bedrooms, marble bathrooms, sauna, spa and Queenstown’s largest private terrace, The Penthouse is the ultimate in luxury accommodation.
The Grille offers contemporary brasserie food and there’s some real highlights: the smoked duck starter served thinly-sliced with plums is too good to share and rather overshadowed another starter of parmesan churros. The venison Wellington is melt-in-the-mouth tender; but black-pudding enthusiasts will find the local version bland by Scottish standards. With a plethora of South Island wines to choose from, the assistance of a sommelier is welcome. Breakfast is à la carte and served in Eichardt’s bar. Their take on Huevos Rancheros comes with homemade wild boar chorizo and is just the thing to set you up for a day of action adventure.
The Grille by Eichardt’s is Queenstown’s premier dining destination. With a vibrant and stylish setting, the restaurant offers an outstanding menu that showcases the unique tastes of the region where the bounty of Central Otago and Southland awaits.
Eichardt’s Bar is renowned as a Queenstown icon and a local favourite since 1867. It has a genuine atmosphere, history and ambience unlike anywhere else in the world, offering a welcoming environment for hotel guests, visitors and Queenstown locals alike. Comfortable sofas, cosy fireplace and gracious service provide a welcoming and stylish environment for sampling mouth-watering creations and timeless cocktails. Eichardt’s Bar is the only bar in Queenstown serving Champagne Bollinger by the glass.
There’s plenty of informed advice and help on hand to navigate Queenstown’s enormous leisure-activity portfolio. Understandably facilities are limited by the hotel’s small size. There is an extensive DVD library and the ‘club lounge’ boasts a large, surround-sound television. The parlour has a cigar cabinet. Queenstown Gym is a three-minute walk from the hotel, free for guests’ use, and extensively equipped. There’s a private entrance to the penthouse for guests who value anonymity.
