Across the deep waters of Lake Wakatipu and the endless mountain ranges beyond, a natural spectacle plays out from sunrise to sunset. And from a heavenly position atop Eichardt’s Private Hotel, the Penthouse gives you a front-row seat to this most unforgettable performance.
The Penthouse by Eichardt’s exudes contemporary opulence and chic interior styling. Complementing unsurpassed views and an extraordinary level of luxury is the Eichardt’s one-of-a-kind service, crafted by a team devoted to faultless and discreet service. The largest of its kind in Queenstown, The Penthouse by Eichardt’s is your opportunity to take in all that Queenstown has to offer from a vantage point very few get to experience.
With interior design by Nina Bell, the Penthouse is 240m2 (787sq. ft.) of sleek modernity and luxurious relaxation. Heritage timber, vaulted ceilings, metallics and monogrammed pillows reflect the heritage of the building, while modern comfort comes in the form of luxurious leather, designer furniture, floor-to-ceiling glass and a kitchen consisting of a granite island bench and Gaggenau appliances. The spacious living area connects two large bedrooms, the indoor/outdoor kitchens, sauna, cedar spa and Queenstown’s largest waterfront private terrace. The Penthouse is situated above the hotel, giving you direct access to the stunning lakefront restaurant, The Grille, or Eichardt’s Bar, where tapas and cocktails are the specialty. You are just moments from the downtown experiences of Queenstown or may prefer a private chef for in-house dining. The immense waterfront terrace is the place for sundown drinks or a relaxing jacuzzi as the striking colours of sunset soak over this southern alpine town.

The highlight of our trip We were so glad to come to Queenstown yesterday and to check in to such a nice place. The staff here is amazing, nothing is a bother, it is a beautifully presented hotel and the setting is literally perfect you can walk everywhere in town. You are right on the lake also. All great and wouldn’t complain about a single thing as I love boutique hotels and this one is a gem.
Gorgeous Boutique Hotel Right in the Heart of Queenstown
Beautifully appointed rooms, stunning views, exceptional service – the staff at Eichardts’ made our stay very special. We enjoyed it so much we have booked to go back in 8 weeks with our son, his girlfriend and daughter.
Best Hotel in Queenstown by far
Brilliant room and amenities! Close to everything and the turndown service was perfect. Breakfast was delicious and probably some of the nicest food we experienced during the trip. Staff were friendly and always willing to help. Absolutely loved our stay and will definitely be back to stay again. Thanks again Eichardts! Best place to stay in Queenstown by far!
We arrived at Eichardt’s Private Hotel after a long flight from San Francisco. The pictures on the web site do not do it justice. Stunning suite with large balcony, bathroom with heated floors and towel rack. Gas fireplace and lots of sitting options. The service is impeccable without being cold and detached. Fantastic breakfasts and a lively and cozy bar overlooking the water. Minutes away on foot from a magnificent flower garden. Hope to have the pleasure of returning one day.
