Perfectly located on the lake at Queenstown, Eichardt's Private Hotel offers a great base for exploring the region,they also offer free parking for their guests which is at a premium in Queenstown. Having said that, the food was less than standard for the quality of food we experienced at Botzwana Butchery, Sasso, Fish bone and at the local wineries. Be...

We stayed at the EIchardt's Residence located a short walk from the hotel and set over three levels facing the Queenstown Bay. There were two couples and we both had lovely rooms on the second floor. The main floor had a laundry room, kitchen, dining area, TV/couch area and a bathroom. The kitchen was stocked with fresh food each day...

We had a wonderful stay at Eichardt's. The room was very well appointed and the hotel is in a great location. We were able to walk to everything. The view from our room looked over a beautiful lake with mountains in the background. I would highly recommend a visit to this amazing hotel.

Eichardts is a first class hotel that has it all to be honest. The best location in Queenstown for a start. Once we arrived after being picked up from the airport in one of the hotel's Land rovers to the last day checking out we honestly could not fault our trip. We were able to stay in the penthouse which...

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.
