Thanks Alex and team for a memorable stay. Everyone goes the extra distance to assist and I would recommend any day. Next time I'll allow for more time to enjoy your complimentary pre-dinner cocktails.... Yours, Well-seasoned Traveller.

This was my second stay at Eichardt's and it was better then the first which was great. The hotel is located on the lake front in in the middle of everything. Friendly and efficient staff, lovely old world suite. Looking forward to a return visit.

Our family spent two weeks at 5 top notch resorts on the North & South islands. Eichardt's had the best, most helpful staff we encountered. Nothing was too difficult for them... if they were lacking anything, they sent someone out to get it in town, or they just went themselves! We only saw rooms 1-4, but all of those were...

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...

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.

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.

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.

One of our best hotel experiences ever. We stayed in three of the suites during a family vacation in Queenstown.

We hated to leave.
