The first thing to stand out is the excellent personal service. From the moment we arrive we are warmly welcomed by staff. Little touches like the ice tea at reception make checking in that much sweeter (the ice tea, by the way, is delicious and the flavour changes daily!).
Eichardt's deluxe mini bar is beautifully presented, & includes jars of cookies, antipodes water, an exquisite selection of teas, sodas and juices, chocolate, & our fav, Proper Crisps! Everything in the mini bar, with the exception of alcohol, is complimentary.
Opening the door to our Eichardt’s Lakefront Suite has us feeling, quite frankly, like excited children on Christmas morning. The view of the lake is breathtaking! We are in love with how spacious the room is, and the breakfast – which can be had from the comfort of the plush Frette linen or from the famous Eichardt’s Bar – has the most amazing a la carte selection of local fruits, house cured meats and happy eggs courtesy of the clever executive chef Will Eaglesfield (who even hand-kilned the plates the deliciousness is served on).

It’s beautifully lush and luxurious, and at this point I’m wondering if I’m ever going to see the rest of Queenstown because we simply do not want to ever leave this new palace! Check out our instagram feed to see more photos of our wonderful stay.
All aboard for a cruise around lake Wakatipu on Eichardt's premium nautical offering, the 24-metre Falcon 80 S 'Pacific Jemm'.
