This is a selection of comments from our guests since we took over Chalet Eiger in April 2017. There are many more on Trip Advisor,, Google Business and so on. It is very important to us that our guests have a great time at Chalet Eiger and that they are happy to tell other people, its how we measure ourselves!

The best accommodation we’ve stayed in in New Zealand.
The room was stunning. The room is hooked up to a radio which plays through speakers in the ceiling. The hosts are incredibly friendly, welcoming and helpful. The bathroom is spectacular. We were greeted with a complimentary cheese and fruit platter. The mini bar contents are complimentary. The breakfast in the morning is excellent and Nina will cook breakfast for you on request on top of the continental bar. The house is incredibly beautiful and the views from the rooms are great! The beds and comfortable. My favourite part is that I got to meet and hang out with Bella the dog who lives there. I can’t rate this place highly enough!!

Relaxing indulgence, by Taupo
Wonderful ambience created by friendly, attentive hosts (and Bella, the dog). Delicious food. All the intimacy of a "B&B", with the luxurious feel of a top hotel. Everything made for a very memorable and happy anniversary treat, away from home. Thoroughly recommended.

Simply perfect!
Sehr freundliche Gastgeberfamilie. Erholsame und ruhige Atmosphäre etwas ausserhalb Taupo, jedoch super Aussicht und sehr ruhig - für uns perfekt. Man fühlt sich sehr Willkommen als Gast. Fantastisches Frühstück. Nevin hat uns sogar zum Hafen gefahren, da die Parkmöglichkeiten beim Hafen wegen dem Ironman-Anlass an diesem Sonntag sehr beschränkt waren.

My fiancé and I spent two wonderful nights at this fantastic lodge during our visit to Taupo and were thoroughly impressed. From the moment we stepped through the front door, we were treated more like long-lost friends than paying guests. There was absolutely nothing that Nina and Peter wouldn't do to make our stay as comfortable as possible. Hot toddy and Lemsip for my cold; complementary cheeseboard with crackers, wine, beers and fruit; scrumptious evening meal; nothing was too much trouble. The lodge is stunning, as are the bedrooms and shared public rooms. I simply can't fault them and we will most definitely visit again, the sooner the better. True excellence!

Chalet Eiger was a memorable stop in our 3 week vacation to New Zealand. The accommodations were magnificent and the hosts were lovely. We spent 3 nights in Taupo and loved every minute of it. Our hosts Nina and Peter made us feel right at home and spoiled us with lovely room and food.

Great place near Taupo. The house is very well designed with spacious, comfortable and clean rooms to stay in. We loved everything here. The owners are very welcoming and helpful. Peter recommended a restaurant nearby for dinner (Plateau Bar + Eatery) and helped us book a table there last minute.

We had a fabulous four night stay over Xmas. Loved every day, totally spoiled. Nina is a fabulous and frequent cook, making us amazing breakfasts, lunches, dinners and snacks. Lovely and quiet location, just a quick zip into town. Incredible Swiss bed and big deep bath, we slept like logs. Great for honeymoon, anniversary or even your wedding. The best review is always would you go back and yes, we absolutely will! The host really do go the extra mile and go out of their way to be amazingly helpful.


Nina and Peter are delightful, friendly and helpful hosts. I would go back anytime and highly recommend this place if you’re staying in the Taupo region. Beds are comfy, rooms are incredibly clean and well appointed. They even give you a complimentary cheese board on arrival to enjoy with a bottle of wine or soda. Definite 5 stars!
