Emil and Hei were brilliant from the very start. We arrived thinking that we were at someone's house and not a B&B but little did we know this was going to be the greatest B&B ever stayed in. The suites are excellent with all the mod cons and a 5 Star deluxe standard. Central music system, great bathrooms and towels....

This place was definitely one of the best (if not the best) place in 3 weeks touring aroundNZ. It was certainly the cleanest and best-kept. The views were amazing, the rooms wonderful....really can find nothing to complain about. The hosts are professional yet friendly and welcoming and there are so many nice touches - home made chocolates in a small...

Absolutely fantastic place to stay. Our stay was so relaxing we didn't want to leave. We stayed 2 nights and had the dinner on the first night. The 4 course dinner was amazing to say the least, and would definitely recommend it to anyone staying here. The hosts are so friendly and make you feel at home, plus the little...

I can't believe the Chalet Eiger has a 5 star rating. We got a reduced price via wotif.com.au and were given the hard word when we arrived from the owners that "you get what you paid for" . Well we paid $245 per night and got the ground floor room near the garage with no bath or tv. I suggest...

We are operating our Lodge for over 3 years and we always had lovely and interesting guests and we very much enjoyed their company. We were warned from other operators that one day we will get also a unpleasant guest. And this happened this time. It arrived unexpectedly and hit us fully. We completely forgot that people can be aggressive,...

Chalet Eiger was the best experience we had in New Zealand. Emil and Hea Min were outstanding hosts--they not only helped us navigate our way through the sights of New Zealand, they also took great care of us. Their home is gorgeous. It has a beautiful view of Lake Taupo and allows you to really enjoy the serene country side....
