“April 1-7 2012 family skiing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2012

Booked a week here on the strength of the trip advisor reviews. Have to say it lives up to the other reviews as we had a great week at Penhab, hosts matt and Annie were very friendly and welcoming. Matt's cooking was a delight and the setting couldn't be better. Having been to hinterglemm a couple of times before we found the central location of the chalet ideal as it's only a couple of minutes walk to the nursery slopes and the ski lifts. Skiing was excellent if a little heavy going in the spring snow, but it was nearly the last week of the season. We travelled with kids (6&10) and loved the relaxed atmosphere and intimacy of the chalet so much so we have already provisionally booked a family room for next season - this little gem is too good to miss!) Can't wait to return...

Had a super week with Matt and Annie (so funny that people mention them rather than the Pension itself in the reviews) - they do really make you feel like you are guests in their home. Our room was spacious warm and the shower hot! The honesty bar genius. Sadly we didnt have the best snow conditions which made negotiating the runs (a lot of them were closed) and resort a bit of a challenge but we knew were were risking this skiing so late in the season. I would highly reccommend this chalet to anyone thinking of making a booking. The two most genuine people you will ever meet - so perfectly suited to taking care of you in what is, for most, their most favourite week of the year.

Have just returned from a week at the Penhab, part of a three generation family group. Mat and Annie could not have made our stay better, the Pension is cosy and friendly, Mat's cooking is excellent. The three children in our group, aged between 4 and 7, felt at home and the situation is perfect for easy access to ski school and all the lifts. We can't recommend this highly enough.

just back from my visit to hinterglemm and we were there on a student organised trip called BUSC anyway, Mat welcomed with shots and a warm and friendly outllok for the week, the breakfast was extensive and there was the option of sensational smelling meals! Mat is a chef you see. More than anything going to stay with mat and Annie felt like staying with friends we were free to chill out as we liked the honesty bar was a nice relaxed way to get to know mat and Annie and include them in the fun and more than anything nothing was too much trouble. Due to an early race day we asked for some earlier cereal than normal but they out of sheer kindness did a full breakfast which was so much appreciated!
Mat and Annie are the loveliest and most ideal couple you could ever think of to own a B7B they work hard and definitely enjoy their life just as much, they truly are living the dream and they love nothing more than sharing a week of it with you!!
CANNOT RECOMMEND ANYWHERE MORE!

Room Tip: all rooms are lovely ground floor however have been newly renovated and are rather pretty!

My family and I stayed at Penhab during the third week of Februar.
Very nice was the bill I had to pay for the ski rental. Not only did the hireguys came to Penhab, the price was a lot cheaper then the hiring companies at Hinterglemm.
Penhab is perfectly situated, very close to the slopes. You can make the choise to ski on the leftside or ont the rightside (very sunny if it shines) of the Skicircus Hinterglemm.
After a day on the mountain, nothing is better then a well cooked home meal. That is what Matt and Annie have for you,
All fresh and with great variety. Beware of the desserts; they're too good. Look out when Matt makes his Apple strudl. Once you take a bite, you're hooked for life!!!

Without a doubt in my mind, I'll be back next year.

Annie and Matt, thank you again for your hospitality and kindness.

See you guys next year!!!!

Have just returned (reluctantly) from a weeks skiing in Hinterglemm staying at Penhab. This is my third time at Pension Penhab. This time I went with a party consisting of my mother and father, sister and her family and me with two of my children. All had a great time. Matt and Annie, as usual, were so friendly and helpful, the Pension was very well kept and Matt's reworked menu went down very well with everyone. He even did an early tea for the younger children and a favorite pudding from last year as requested by my son; could not have done more to make our stay a great one. We have booked again for next year. The Pension and its fabulous location is perfect for us, it is relaxed enough for us not to have to worry too much about the children disrupting other guests, the renovations completed so far are looking good (the non-renovated rooms are also fine, just not with the finish of the re-done ones); I wouldn't want to go anywhere else. Thanks again Matt and Annie for a wonderful week; looking forward to next year already.

A group of us went to the Penhab Jan 2012 for the first time. This small chalet is run by Matt and Annie. They were friendly and helpful. They arranged for our rental of skis and boots at a very reasonable price.The chalet and rooms were clean and the food delicious. There was a reasonably priced bar where we were able to sit and mull over the day. We were not charged any extra for single rooms. The location of the chalet could not have been better. Almost on the doorstep were nursery slopes, lifts, moonlight skiing, apres ski bar, shops and town. We could not have wanted for more and will certainly want to be going back there. Thanks Matt and Annie for a fantastic week.
