“On the shores of Lake Wakatipu, Eichardt’s Private Hotel has a lovely 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.”
Eichardt’s Private Hotel, was built on the back of the gold-mining boom in the mid-19th century and bears the name of former owners Albert and Julia Eichardt.
Eichardt’s features five luxurious suites with expansive lake views from the rooms or from private balconies. Three suites face the lake and two have captivating mountain views.
