To be honest we didn't know what to expect going into this one. After a technological mix-up with our original reservation at another hotel (see Azur review), this hotel and reservation was found for us. We hadn't heard as much or read as much about Eichardt's as some of the other hotels in Queenstown (it seems to lay under the...

I am delighted we are able to come to the rescue after your original hotel fell through, we worked closely with them to ensure everything went to plan after that point! I appreciate your thoughtful comments on all aspects of the operation, it is pleasing to see we hit...

My husband and I unexpectedly ended up spending two nights prior to New Year’s Eve in one of the plush Lakeview Suites with a private balcony, overlooking Lake Wakatipu with a gorgeous backdrop of surrounding mountain ranges. This hotel has the best of everything in Queenstown, best lakefront location, views, heaps of charm, history & character, and the cherry on...

My husband and I with our two children ages 14 and 17 stayed in this lovely boutique hotel on the lake in Queenstown in late December. This was the perfect location for our family, near a breathtaking trail for a walk or run and close to the quant shopping area with an abundance of restaurants to choose from nearby. The...

Thank you for your review, it was a pleasure to have you and your family with us over the festive season. Queenstown is a wonderful place to be at this time of year - and Eichardt's' location right on the lake front is second to none. Looking forward to welcoming you back again soon!

Eichardt's was lovely from the moment we stepped into the lobby. The staff are courteous, friendly, helpful and always ready to provide whatever it is we needed or wanted. The accommodations were splendid - beautifully appointed, well serviced, plenty of room, and unbeatable views. We won't stay anywhere else in Queenstown! Wish we had stayed longer. Thank you, Eichardt's!

We recently had four nights in one of Eichardt’s lakeview suites – stunning. The accommodation, service and staff were first class, simply faultless.

We had a fantastic 5 night stay here at the end of November in one of the lakefront apartments.

One of our best hotel experiences ever. We stayed in three of the suites during a family vacation in Queenstown. The accommodations were elegant and spacious, the location on the lake and in town was perfect, the staff warm and couldn't have been more helpful, all-in-all an unforgettable time. We hated to leave.

This hotel is not equipped to handle unexpected medical or travel related issues.
