The Eichardt’s story is as rich as the New Zealand gold rush in the 1860s from which he hotel was born.

In 1859, pastoralist William Gilbert Rees built a homestead on the lakefront and erected a woolshed on the site now occupied by Eichardt’s Hotel.

When gold was discovered in the nearby Shotover River, Rees found himself at the centre of a gold rush, and the entrepreneurial Rees quickly turned to the hotel keeping business. The woolshed was given a wooden façade and turned into a hotel and named the Queen’s Arms.

In early 1866, Rees entered into partnership with Albert Eichardt who went on to become the sole proprietor of the hotel by 1869. Eichardt renamed the property, Eichardt’s Queen’s Arms Hotel.

Eichardt’s is a significant local landmark, and is listed as a Category 2 historic place by the Historic Places Trust. Eichardt’s today accommodates discerning travellers from around the globe.
