We thoroughly enjoyed Eichardt's. The staff, especially the lovely Canadian woman who picked us up at the airport, is wonderful. All are well organized, warm, welcoming and a pleasure to be around. The apartment we had was perfect- comfortable, well stocked with an amazing shower. We really enjoyed being right in town and walking distance to lots of great restaurants...

Just returned home from our third visit to Eichardts. Exceptional staff and customer service, subtle luxury and simply the best. Suite 2 is larger but Site 1 has a balcony looking out over the lake, which is fantastic on a sunny afternoon (with a glass of wine!). Lovely tapas menu in the bistro and, again, great staff. This is absolutely...

Many thanks Alison, lovely feedback! It is brilliant to have regular guests giving us this type of endorsement - that we can still surprise and delight after many stays. We are constructing additional lakefront suites next door to the main building, both will have balconies - and the rooftop penthouse will be something to behold with a huge terrace area...

The location in the heart of downtown Queenstown is private but still enables guests to enjoy the vibrancy of a lake side community, The beds and bedding are divine and so inviting after a few days of hiking . I can't say enough about the attention of the team that works there. They made you feel like you were coming...

A superb stay - only 1 night but felt like royalty. This is a serious top end facility - expensive but you get what you pay for and an ideal special occasion extravagance. Staff were amazing. The building is fabulous and the apartment we stayed in unbelievable and hugely enjoyable.

It felt pretty casual on arriving, once we were greeted we were lead away from the building & shown to our apartment I felt somewhat disappointed that the apartments are not in fact part of the old building but that they are a whole block away. Once I had settled in I began to appreciate the not to large or...

Thank you for your review - so pleased that you found the apartments t your liking - they are a home away from home and despite the separation from the main building, very much an intimate part of the Eichardt's experience. The lakefront aspect is very unique in Queenstown. Looking forward to your next stay! Best wishes, James Cavanagh

My wife and I stayed here a year ago and it was (and still is) one of our highlights of travelling.

We finished up our New Zealand vacation at Eichardt's and that was the perfect way to end. Since its location is second to none in Queenstown we could leave the car in their parking lot (parking can be a little tough to find) and walk to pretty much anything we wanted to see. Though Eichardt's has other nearby properties available,...
