The hotel is of a high standard in all respects. The hotel and our room were kept very clean and lost count of how many new towels we got. The food was of excellent quality, imaginatively presented and very well prepared. Best of all is the team who work there. Everyone we met very so friendly and helpful and obviously enjoyed working there, they create a great atmosphere to relax and enjoy your holiday.

Thank you Paul and family !
It is wonderful for family Hochfilzer to hear that our team is constantly friendly and happy and therefore they provide high standards of creative customer service with
a very good sense of humour and no problems with hard work !
There will be beautiful new rooms built and more creative renovations going on soon - you will have to come back and see !

I slept at the AktivHotels` sister hotel Claudia - with breakfast - and which included evening 4-course meals taken in the main hotel (AktivHotel). With years` of visiting various resorts in Austria (on ski holidays), I`m absolutely knocked-out by many aspects of these two hotels:- The friendliness, efficiency, cleanliness, location (in relation to the main part of town and ski slopes), the service, attention to detail and probably more important - the quality and quantity of the food; certainly the quality of the food here would be expected in higher-classed hotels. I shall definitely return one day! For skiers, there`s a bus stop nearby for the short bus ride to the main Hartkaiser gondola station, or a very short walk to the nursery slopes opposite.

Dearest John F. !
We love to know you out in a positive way !
I will have to print this comment for our head chef - he will get tears in his eyes whilst reading your words !
....and I have to admit that I am also touched because you described our lovely product so perfectly - it reassures us that we are walking on the right path !

The Hochfilzer was a perfect choice of a couple skiing holiday over New Years. The hotel itself is beautiful with fantastic bar area with fire, relaxing spa (sauna x 3, steam room, indoor and outdoor jacuzzi and pool) and clean rooms.
The staff are friendly and helpful and manages to keep it feeling homely despite the size.
The food is amazing with lots of choice and beautiful presentation. Drinks are reasonably priced.
For skiing it is a 5 minute walk to the piste for the Ellmau area and from their you have to take a couple of lifts and 2 red runs to get over the main gondola (this is a beautiful and surprisingly quiet journey). There are lots of nice runs and ski school/ begginers slopes without going over to the main gondola. Alternatively you can get a shuttle bus from 3 min walk from hotel
We plan to go back to The Hochfilzer next year.

Just notched up my 15th stay at the Hochfilzer. It's like a second home: lovely team, great hotel, ideal setting. Always given a warm welcome; always sad to leave... Love it when the swifts swoop round the village in June; love the clear skies in autumn.

Room Tip: Best views are from the rear of the hotel looking out on the Wilden Kaiser.

There is really something special about all seasons, we ourselves can't even get enough of it! And so we are all really happy to show and give this to all our guests!
Looking forward to welcoming you again soon!

A great hotel with excellent meals and lovely efficient service. Each time we go we are recognised and welcomed back as friends. Our wedding anniversary was made special for us with a decorated table and the owner Ingrid took photos of us toasting each other with her family heirloom goblets.

We see many of the same staff year after year and they all seem happy which makes for a good team. High standards of cleaning are great to see as well..

Room Tip: There are quiet rooms at the back of the hotel but resort traffic now reduced with new road.
