The location was fantastic - but no car park and they were doing some road maintenance in front of the hotel. It is an amazing hotel, one of the best - if not the best hotel we have stayed in. The staff were awesome, in particular the bar staff who also served breakfast - Danielle - was very friendly. Kieran...

Eichardts is an exceptional place to stay. The location, the staff, and the quality of the rooms were simply impeccable. And the little things like complimentary drinks and canapes in the lounge, delicious fudge and Antipodes water by your bed - wow. Thank you for the weekend of a lifetime.
