Fodor's Expert Review Eichardt's Private Hotel
Marine Parade, Queenstown, Otago, 9300, New Zealand
Once patronized by miners during the 1860s gold rush, Eichardt's now regularly receives awards as a boutique ski resort hotel. Guest rooms are done in rich cocoa brown and cream; all have sitting areas with fireplaces, dressing rooms, and bathrooms with heated floors and double vanities. You can request a lake or mountain view. Staff are exceptionally helpful and can arrange anything from a massage to a helicopter ride. The House Bar has delicious tapas and cocktails, along with an impressive selection of Otago and other New Zealand wines. Eichardt's also has cottages with full kitchens, two bedrooms, and a common area in a nearby building.
