Eichardt’s Private Hotel

With a breathtaking backdrop, elegant decor, five-star service and the convenience of a central location in the heart of the city, Eichardt’s Private Hotel is the dream wedding location. For Australians, a short three-hour flight transports you to a location that feels worlds away, with ease of planning logistics close to home, and inexpensive travel costs. For those who dream of a wedding in a far-flung location, Queenstown’s inimitable beauty and otherworldly surrounds make for one of the most unique celebrations and honeymoon adventures, well worth the travel.

The Penthouse is the ultimate offering of luxury and sophistication. Overlooking Lake Wakatipu, with uninterrupted views extending to the mountains, the Penthouse Terrace is the ideal location for a private wedding ceremony for up to 40 guests inside or outside.

The Parlour is the pinnacle of elegance, enhanced by its stunning location in the heritage wing of the hotel, with balcony views over Lake Wakatipu. Stylish and inviting, it’s the perfect location for an intimate ceremony in front of the fireplace.

For a less-than-conventional ceremony, celebrate in one venue. Ideal for groups of 60 to 80 standing, while you say I do before breath-taking floor-to-ceiling mountain views. After a brief sojourn for photos, arrive back for a more formal wedding reception with ample space for speeches, music and dancing.

Standing at 80ft long, the Pacific Jemm offers a truly unique space, coupled with the freedom to host a private ceremony in complete tranquillity without the need to travel long distances. Whether you opt for an onboard service, with the lake your backdrop or an intimate, wild island ceremony only accessible by yacht, the Pacific Jemm is a stand-out venue.

With outstanding views and flexibility of the space, the Penthouse can be shaped to match anyone’s dream intimate reception. Host your guests for a formal seating dinner for up to 24, or a more relaxed reception of 40 guests standing.

For a warm, private reception our Parlour room is the perfect location. Dine together in front of the fireplace and celebrate with champagne on the balcony afterwards.

From small to large formal receptions, The Grille can perfectly cater to all, complete with space for live music and dancing, as you watch the sunset through floor-to-ceiling windows. Our Private Dining Room can host up to 12 guests in a cosier setting.

A private charter aboard Pacific Jemm is the perfect option for a reception, pre or post-wedding celebration, providing breathtaking views of the lake and mountains with bespoke charters catered to your group.

Eichardt’s offers a collection of seven luxurious Suites, four comfortably appointed cottage Apartments, a three-bedroom villa, The Residence, and Queenstown’s most premier accommodation, The Penthouse, all situated in premium lakefront positions in the heart of Queenstown. Group bookings & hotel buyouts are available at a discounted rate.
