What makes this property unique?

Welcoming guests, visitors and Queenstown locals is Eichardt’s infamous bar, a captivating place whereby history and atmosphere appeal to every sense. Equipped with generous sofas and toasty fireplaces, the bar serves mouth-watering breakfast, inventive tapas and speciality cocktails.


The Parlour offers a comfortable private lounge and dining area for meals to be enjoyed. Aiming to enhance the unique flavours of Otago, ingredients are sourced locally and the chefs bake their bread, cure their meats and utilise their local knowledge to forage where possible.
