Our holiday based at Eichardt's Private Hotel ranks as the best we have ever experienced. This boutique hotel treats its residents like royalty and provides for every perceived need. From its valet parking services on arrival and throughout the stay, exceptionally friendly reception personnel, a full personal explanation of the extensive services available for guests, and the remarkable comfort provided,...

Unfortunately we did not stay here but did have a fabulous lunch and tour of the rooms. We stayed at Blanket Bay which was pretty but too far from the bustling town.

Amazing views with great service. The staff were helpful and approachable. Wonderful experience. We thoroughly enjoyed the tapas served at the bar on those couple of nights we were there. The Grille also served delicious ala carte breakfast. Highly recommended.

We stayed here four nights. Had a wonderful time in the Queenstown area: beautiful lake; many nearby wineries; lots of activities in the area; interesting central area with lots of shops and some very good restaurants. The hotel was a great place to stay. It's right on the lake with spectacular views but nearby all the shops and dining establishments....
