Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We spent two nights in Chalet Eiger in January. The location is stunning and Peter and Nina are fabulous and welcoming hosts. The views from the hotel are stunning and the breakfasts which are home cooked by Nina are excellent, the best breakfast we had in NZ ! The room was spotlessly clean, comfortable and well appointed with some lovely treats in the fridge which were complimentary. We had a lovely time. Highly recommended.

Our experience at Chalet Eiger was nothing like we have had before, from the moment we arrived we were treated like royalty, Nina and Peter were absolutely lovely and so easy to talk too and made us feel comfortable the whole time we were there, We were there for our ‘minimoon’ and it definitely was our home away from home for the 2 nights we were there, The food was absolutely to die for and the wine was simply delicious!! The whole atmosphere was very welcoming! Our room ‘ruapehu’ featuring a twin spa bath was so relaxing as was the extra large super king bed, the views from our room were amazing, looking out at the lake and the mountains over looking the grapevine seating area and gardens. I would definitely highly recommend staying here, it is a lovely experience and perfect spot for some time out and Peter made venturing into town in the evening easier by offering to drop us off. We will absolutely be back!! We had the greatest time ! Thank you both very much again.

Me and my husband had the pleasure staying at Chalet Eiger over Christmas for two nights and what an incredible stay we had. Both Nina and Peter are the most hospitable hosts and and made our stay very special. Breakfast and Christmas Day dinner was amazing, it was lovely to have a home cooked meal and Nina is a wonderful cook! I couldn’t recommend staying at Chalet Eiger enough. It’s a beautiful place to stay and experience the wonders Taupo. Thank you again both Nina and Peter, we’ll never forget our time with you for Christmas and how lovely it was. Laura & Joe x

We wish to thank Peter and Nina for having provided us with a hospitable stay at Chalet Eiger Lodge. The property is well-managed and meticulously decorated for Christmas. The view of the garden and part of Lake Taupō from the sitting room and our room is stunning.

Chalet Eiger stay was a treat, from the initial introduction to the welcome committee (Bella & Rufus) 2 delightful little dogs, and the laid back cat, Floyd. Owners Peter and Nina made us feel right at ease in the homely atmosphere. The suites are finished to a great standard, with large bathroom and shower, (and separate toilet). Good selection of teas and coffees, with wine, beer and cheese board on arrival. Breakfast had a large selection for any appetite. Would highly recommend.

This was probably the best place we stayed on our trip to New Zealand. The location is gorgeous and quiet, and the rooms are spacious with beautiful views and comfy beds. Best of all, Nina and Peter are fantastic hosts. When we had to get up super early to catch a shuttle to a hike, they brought us a complete breakfast the night before so that we wouldn't leave hungry that morning; offered suggestions for things to do around Taupo; and also proved delightful company for evenings in the common room. Also, Floyd the cat is excellent.
