Iconic landmark, 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. On the shores of Lake Wakatipu, this elegant downtown retreat retains many of its original features, with supreme comfort and a home-from-home welcome. Antiques mingle with modern colours, glossy touches and designer furniture. This is elegance epitomised without any stuffiness. 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. Step outside and you are in the heart of the town s premier restaurant and cafe precinct. Designer shops are within easy walking distance, there are plenty of gourmet dining choices and our team can ensure you get the best seat in the house. Eichardt's Private Hotel is a Small Luxury Hotels of the World property.
