Nina was an amazing host, very knowledgeable of local attractions and activities. Very welcoming and felt like a home away from home. Accomodation very spacious, comfortable and excellent view over Lake Taupo, nothing to fault. Breakfast is first rate and cooked to order. We fell in love with the clan - Rufus and Bella the dogs and Floyd the cat. Thankyou so much for the best and most memorable stay, we will definitely stay again.

We had a two night stay and were well looked after. Nina’s catering was a treat and Peter was able to arrange a half days fly fishing with Dustin which one has to be absolutely in the moment for so was ideal to block out the world with. Chalet Eiger is such a peaceful place. Thanks so much for the great stay.

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights the day after our wedding. With all the stress of planning a wedding (especially during covid) it was exactly what we needed and more. Peter and Nina looked after us so well and treated us like we were their own. Upon arrival we had a cheese platter with champagne and chocolate waiting for us in our room, canapés before dinner, a 3 course meal, a massive breakfast with plenty of options! A couples massage and a picnic. The food was outstanding and you can be assured that you will not go without! There is not one thing at Chalet Eiger that we would change/think needs improving - we truly think it is perfect. After a crazy wedding this get a way was exactly what we needed, we were able to relax completely here, Great conversations and recommendations of what to do in Taupo and the most beautiful dogs - Bella and Rufus. Thank you so much for having us and looking after us after such a stressful lead up to our wedding, we hope to be back very soon!

We only stayed one night but wished it couldve been more. Peter and Nina are such lovely hosts and there were such a lot of complimentary extras, a lovely bottle of wine and yummy cheese board, water and numerous other goodies. Breakfast cooked by Nina was absolutely delicious. Our room which was on the ground floor was spacious clean and luxurious. We will return when next we are in Taupo.
