  • We build a tailored itinerary. Once you’ve received it, we can answer any further questions and refine it until you are completely happy.
  • Book it. When you are satisfied with all the arrangements, we ask you to complete a booking form and pay a deposit, at which point we start confirming everything.

This is where you’ll find no-holds-barred luxury, in an exclusive shoreside setting on ever-so-romantic romantic Lake Wakatipu.  Contemporary provincial elegance is the order of the day here, and you’ll find only five suites within the historical walls, each with super king size bed, sitting room with fireplace, dressing room and to-die-for bathroom, complete with a luxurious bath and double vanity, separate shower and heated mirror and floor. It’s one of those places where state of the art technology blends seamlessly with the historical charm of the building.

The 'Parlour' (of course!) is replete with opulent chairs and deep sofas and this is where breakfast will be served. They ask what you prefer and then rustle it up – this level of discrete personal service being the hallmark of the stay. Here you are genuinely a guest in someone’s luxurious home and the experience is skillfully tailored to you.

Eichardt's Bar has a cult-like status in Queenstown – this is where the cool-kids drink cocktails. The sumptuous interiors of the hotel, creating a boudoir atmosphere, follow through to this space. But of all this sounds too much – then it isn’t. The friendly, welcoming and relaxed service saves it from all becoming a rich-mans parody of itself – instead, staying here is simply a rather special experience. A genteel cocoon, if you will.
