From humble beginnings, Eichardt’s Private Hotel has evolved into one of the world’s finest hotels. However, if there is one thing we have learned over many decades, it is that no guest is ever the same. And so, The Residence and the Eichardt’s apartments have taken form and allowed us to deliver that inimitable Eichardt’s service and luxury within a range of private, self-contained options.

The Residence and the Eichardt’s Apartments are located just a short walk from the heritage building. Each is ideally positioned for dramatic lake and mountain views and easy access to the town centre. A stay at The Residence or one of the three lakefront apartments comes with the five for, yet offers convenient additions such as a private entrance, large balconies and separate entertaining and living areas.

The Eichardt’s Residence is located just a short walk from the hotel and is set over three levels with glorious views over Queenstown Bay, to Queenstown Gardens and the Remarkables mountain range. Hosting three large bedrooms each with split king beds, The Residence is designed with space and luxurious comfort in mind and is ideal for small groups, colleagues, and families with configurations tailored to meet your needs. The master suite, located on the top floor, is complemented by a gas fire and floor to ceiling windows which open out onto a private balcony with superb views. Large balconies also extend from the lower floor suite and main living area.


Delivering both European-designed opulence and homely comfort, The Residence strikes the perfect balance for those seeking a five-star hotel experience within a private occupancy. This self-contained, three-bedroom luxury home is located a 10-minute walk from Eichardt’s Private Hotel, and its elevated position delivers glorious views over Queenstown Bay, Queenstown Gardens and The Remarkables beyond. The Residence is popular for small groups and families or anyone looking to experience the best of both worlds.

The highlight of our trip
We were so glad to come to Queenstown yesterday and to check in to such a nice place. The staff here is amazing, nothing is a bother, it is a beautifully presented hotel and the setting is literally perfect you can walk everywhere in town. You are right on the lake also. All great and wouldn’t complain about a single thing as I love boutique hotels and this one is a gem.

Gorgeous Boutique Hotel Right in the Heart of Queenstown
Beautifully appointed rooms, stunning views, exceptional service – the staff at Eichardts’ made our stay very special. We enjoyed it so much we have booked to go back in 8 weeks with our son, his girlfriend and daughter.

Best Hotel in Queenstown by far
Brilliant room and amenities! Close to everything and the turndown service was perfect. Breakfast was delicious and probably some of the nicest food we experienced during the trip. Staff were friendly and always willing to help. Absolutely loved our stay and will definitely be back to stay again. Thanks again Eichardts! Best place to stay in Queenstown by far!

We arrived at Eichardt’s Private Hotel after a long flight from San Francisco. The pictures on the web site do not do it justice. Stunning suite with large balcony, bathroom with heated floors and towel rack. Gas fireplace and lots of sitting options. The service is impeccable without being cold and detached. Fantastic breakfasts and a lively and cozy bar overlooking the water. Minutes away on foot from a magnificent flower garden. Hope to have the pleasure of returning one day.
