A Queenstown institution, this stunning hotel, right on Queenstown’s waterfront, has been purveying top quality accommodation for over a century and a half. Established in 1866 to service the Otago Goldfields, the Echardt’s Hotel of today epitomizes the grace and charm of the colonial world blended with the sophistication and style of a modern 5-star hotel.
The spacious Penthouse (240m²), with its uninterrupted views, is accessed via a private elevator and features leather sofas, sumptuous decor, and Queenstown’s largest private terrace. The Lakeview Suites feature all mod cons, walk-in wardrobes and generous bathtubs. The Residence, a few minutes walk away, takes luxury to new levels with three king-sized bedrooms.
From gold miners to high country shepherds, the famous Eichardt’s bar has been refreshing travellers in its elegant, comfy surrounding since its earliest days. The bar’s tapas menu blends fresh local ingredients with handpicked vegetables and herbs sourced from the nearby hills. The Grille continues this fine tradition, while high tea can be had daily in The Parlour.
Blending unique treatments and personalized packages, The Vault Spa. located in Eichardt’s Heritage Wing, is a perfect place to hideaway and relax. Wooden hot tubs are a feature of the Penthouse and Lakeview Apartments. The hotel’s private, 80-foot Falcon-S motor launch is Queenstown’s only private 5-star yacht and is available for lake cruises and charters.
