Why we recommend Eichardt's Private Hotel

Eichardt’s Private Hotel, Queenstown, New Zealand

On the shores of Lake Wakatipu in Queenstown, New Zealand, Eichardt’s Private Hotel has a homely feel with a supremely stylish edge. This elegant downtown retreat retains many of its original features - antiques mingle with modern colours, glossy touches and designer furniture. The wing-backed chairs by the fire in the parlour are the best place to relax before sipping pre-dinner cocktails from the house bar.
