TravelPod Member ReviewsEichardt's Private Hotel Queenstown
We stayed in their Lakefront apartments, a stunning location directly overlooking the water in the very heart of Queenstown but were also entitled to use all the facilities of the hotel including breakfast and evening drinks in the famous Eichardt'd bar. Our apartment was spacious and very comfortable in every way. Having been on the road for a week already we were delighted to have a washing machine and drier in the kitchen area. Over in the bar the staff were all friendly, professional and extremely efficient. A wonderful place to stay in Queenstown.

We then got to look at the third star of Orion’s belt, as it looks fuzzy. It’s because there is a blackhole behind it! We got to look at the black hole, well you just see black, but you can see the light around it then a suspicious black patch.
Last thing we got to look ...
After a detour and a little off- roading, we headed off to Queenstown. The weather was not being very kind to us so we let Barry film while we appreciated the wondrous views from the warm car! In Arrowtown, an old mining settlement, we did venture out for some lunch. Barry wanted to sit outside but majority rule won and we opted a for warm inside table. A quick stroll around and a photo or two before heading to our final destination for the next couple ...
... a campsite near the station and it appeared that we were not the only ones to have emptied our tank. Hordes of campers appeared the next morning, parking as close as possible to the pump. Their hunger was plain. They muttered to themselves and circled the pumps daring others to come closer. Whence the petrol still hadn't arrived at midday they became more fierce. I wanted no part of this and I also believed that there would be enough petrol for everybody, so I decided ...
