This was our second visit to Chalet Eiger, and we returned to Taupo specifically to stay there again. Emil and Hea Min offer gracious, warm hospitality with very comfortable rooms and facilities. Most of all, Hea Min is a cook (chef?) who could easily hold her head high amongst 5-star celebrity chefs if she wanted to - supported by Emil who has his own specialities also (eg. a game terrine which was delightful). They take the time to source ingredients from trusted suppliers and they also grow many of their own vegetables and herbs. We will return in the next couple of years! (If you go, make sure you ask for the sesame and pepper encrusted tuna with sesame rice).
