An Intriguing Legacy in Queenstown
Eichardt’s Private Hotel is tied to the very beginning of Queenstown’s history, when it was a mining center. The property of Albert Eichardt, a Russian immigrant, it opened its doors in 1867 on the shores of Lake Wakatipu. With its elegant rooms, bar and poolroom, it became a symbol of the city, and was frequented by rich miners, businessmen and tourists. It has been beautifully restored and today we see it in its original splendor. Decorated with elegance and luxury by the famous designer Virginia Fisher, it features awesome views of majestic landscapes.
Each room offers guests a warm, welcoming ambiance, a living room with a fireplace and a balcony with a magnificent vista of the lake and the moun- tains. Evoking the past, Eichardt’s Private Hotel pro- vides guests with a marvelous opportunity to discover the charm of one of the most beautiful places on the planet, right in the heart of the city and close to the best restaurants. It is an excellent base for exploring Queenstown’s many attractions as well as a home away from home where you can relax in the Parlour as if you were in a tiny Eden. Eichardt’s: an authentic work of art.
