The suite joins an award-winning assortment of accommodation offerings from the hotelier including - Eichardt's Lakefront Apartments, Eichardt’s Private Hotel and the Eichardt’s Residence.

The new accommodation interiors meld the old world with the modern edge of the expansion featuring an exterior of local Oamaru limestone and exposed steel.
Linking internally with the original Eichardt’s, guests can discreetly enter the famous bar and private parlour and sip on the region’s finest pinot noir or expand their cocktail horizons amongst the snowy peaks and nature beyond.
Enjoying the locally sourced tastes of New Zealand on the tapas menu of executive chef Will Eaglesfield is likewise, a rite of passage, and the not-to-be-missed chowder.
