The Hotel suites all feature a super-king bed, fireplace and mini-bar, a dressing room and bathroom with generous bath and double vanity, separate shower, heated mirror and floor. Each one is fully entertainment and business integrated with personal audiovisual systems, along with email and internet access.

The Hotel’s Parlour offers guests the ideal setting for lingering over breakfast, with awe inspiring views over Lake Wakatipu and the comforting crackle of an open log fire, complimented by overstuffed chairs and sofas against a backdrop of exquisite antiques and objets d’art.

Lakefront Apartments
Eichardt's Lakefront Apartments comprises four two-bedroom suites offering visitors flexible and luxurious accommodation, each with stunning lake and mountain views. The interior design was masterminded by world renowned New Zealander Virginia Fisher.

The Apartments are perfect for larger parties, families, professionals and longer staying guests. The split-level suites are interconnected and can be opened to become a large single accommodation space, or sectioned off for smaller groups.

Each suite is spacious and airy, illuminated with natural light, and upper floor roofs have sunny skylights with electric shutters. A compact and well-equipped kitchen with microwave and hob enables relaxing 'at home' dining or entertainment.

Majestic vistas over the lake and mountains and luxuriously-appointed amenities give the Lakefront Apartments all the comfort and style of a home-away-from-home while guests enjoy full use of all Eichardt's Hotel facilities, including concierge services, literally just a few steps away.
