    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.
