Eichardt’s Private Hotel and The Spire Hotel take out gongs

Hotels marker of ‘Southern hospitality’

Eichardt’s Private Hotel and The Spire Hotel take out top gongs during international awards season

The Imperium Collection, owners and operators of both of Queenstown’s Eichardt’s Private Hotel and The Spire Hotel, are again putting Queenstown’s famous ‘Southern hospitality’ on the map.

Famed lakefront accommodation Eichardt’s Private Hotel has taken out best Australia & Oceania Luxury Ski Resort at the World Luxury Hotel Awards 2018, whilst sister property The Spire will enjoy being dubbed New Zealand’s top Luxury Small Hotel.

The awards were presented to general manager James Cavanagh at a gala dinner in Bali earlier this week.

“In a period of growth for the group, where we have added a Penthouse, three further suites, The Grille 130-seat restaurant plus luxury private cruising yacht Pacific Jemm to our portfolio, it’s a really proud moment to know that our eye for detail and superior guest experience has never wavered,” says Cavanagh.

The World Luxury Hotel Awards are the pinnacle of achievement in the luxury hotel industry. Established in 2006, these awards offer international recognition as voted by guests, travellers and industry players alike. Public vote selects all winners of the World Luxury Hotel Awards, reflecting real recognition for the hard work and dedication of hotel staff and hotel standards from peers and guests.

This win comes off the back of a further coup for Eichardt’s, who were earlier this month crowned Elegant Luxury Hotel of the Year at the Luxury Travel Guide Awards.

The Imperium Collection is a collective of accommodation and dining offers including Eichardt’s Private Hotel, Eichardt’s Bar, The Spire Hotel, No5 Church Lane, The Grille, The Penthouse and The Pacific Jemm cruising vessel.
