We had a most comfortable stay with great accommodation, hosts and food. Nothing was too much trouble for Peter and Nina in looking after us - fantastic hosts. We had dinner with them on 2 nights and the food and company were wonderful. Also, fell in love with Bella and Otto the 4 legged friends.

They are genuine people and make great hosts. The food was exceptional. Being a picky eater Nina easily adapted her menu to accommodate me. From our experience my husband and I know they will make...

We were fortunate enough to stay at Chalet Eiger from 7-9 April 2017 and can't say enough good things about the place, the people, and the food. Ours was a small group trip and thanks to the hosts, Nina & Pete, we all had a truly fabulous time. A couple of the guys went deer hunting (and had success!) while...

This was our second visit,the previous visit was at a different time of year and with different owners. Neven was an awesome host, friendly and chatty. The room was lovely,clean and well appointed- but the main thing that disappointed over the two days was the breakfast experience. Considering this is far from a budget category establishment, there wasn't a choice...

I would recommend everything about staying at Chalet Eiger in Taupo, NZ. We will back next time we are in NZ! House is set in a beautiful location with stunning views, food was amazing and Amos was an attentive host - we really enjoyed our dinner conversation and learnt so much about NZ and Japan along the way!

Kevin and Pon are incredible hosts. The homemade food was insanely delicious, the house was SPOTLESS and the grounds were beautiful. Me and my husband completely relaxed with our complimentary bold wine, comfortable balcony and jazz music playing all day long. They go the extra mile to take care of you. It's the only place to stay if you're in...
