Eichardt's was delightful. The team were fabulous; they were welcoming and easy to deal with. It could only have been better if they managed to work out how to make it snow on request!! We look forward to visiting again soon.

Amazing location

We had a relaxing time . Seemed less private with new restaurantnext door . Some staff were not well trained especially in the small bistrot . We were by accident given the wrong champagne by the glass and the waitress was very rude to us questioning us about it being correct ! The barman apologised and replaced it .Food on the cold side when delivered finally . We had guest drinks upstairs and stall were well educated .

A fantastic two night stay

My husband and I stayed at Eichardts Hotel for two nights. We absolutely loved our stay. Our room was gorgeous and the staff were friendly and went out of their way to ensure that we were well looked after. We would thoroughly recommend this hotel to others.
