Haus Spencer
Reviewed February 17, 2013

My friends and I have been staying in apartments during our weekly skiing holidays for the last 10 years and we have to rate Haus Spencer right up there in our top 3. We were greeted by Rob and Bev on arrival with welcoming smiles and lots of information about the area - particularly helpful as one of our group is a non skier who just enjoys "sight seeing" and relaxing in the apartment while we are struggling to stay upright on the slopes!

As Rob is a qualified sports masseur and physiotherapist we soon found out about aches and pains we didn't know we had ..... seriously, a massage from Rob is a very worthwhile experience. Meanwhile, Bev makes a mean cheesecake - we were treated to a piece of orange cheesecake that was delicious.

We have always looked for apartments that are in small resorts that give us access to a much wider ski area and Filzmoos fits the bill. It is a charming small town and a great base if you want to travel around a bit. We would call ourselves good intermediate skiers and within 30 minutes by car there are at least another 7 towns and villages with ample skiing to keep us amused for a week. Filzmoos itself is compact, walking from the apartment to the heart of the town takes 5 minutes, as does the walk to the nearest gondola lift - and it is a flat walk.

As a group we have never returned to the same resort, but on our way home we agreed Filzmoos (and in particular, Haus Spencer) would be worth a further visit. Hasta la vista, baby (doesn't sound quite the same in German) - we'll be back!

We spent our holiday with both of our parents and 2 children, so we booked the 2 appartments, which was extremely comfortable for us. We easily had breakfast and dinner with 6 adults and 2 children at one table, which felt like Christmas with the beautiful scenery outside.

The house is full of windows and so you can enjoy the beautiful Filzmoos surroundings at all times. Nice trees all around the village.

The hospitality provided by the owners is really family-like. They are at your disposal at all times without annoying you.

May be the most wonderful house I've ever spent my holiday in. Can't think of anything negative, even though I try hard.

After almost a year of my boyfriend telling me how amazing Filzmoos is, we finally took the opportunity to go in January of this year. Rob met us at the airport and on the drive to the town expertly fielded our many questions about the plans that lay ahead of us.

The apartment was amazing, beautifully appointed with everything we could possibly need. Everything looked "as new" with views to be admired. I even took a photo from the balcony as soon as we arrived! This, combined with Bev's Sachertorte (chocolate cake) made us feel very welcome immediately.

Rob was able to service our skis in-house. So while we were out exploring, he made sure our ski gear was ready for the next day's fun. Perfect!

Haus Spencer is in a superb location. A couple of minutes walk from all ski lifts in the town, local amenities and restaurants - of which there are many great options to choose from.

The skiing was amazing. We were very lucky with the weather, and managed to see Filzmoos at it's idilic best. Not once did we have to queue for a ski lift during the whole trip! After a hard few days skiing we treated ourselves to a Sports Massage. It turns out that Rob is Flizmoos' resident Sports Massage Therapist, with his therapy room downstairs from our apartment. Just what we needed.

All in all, our hosts couldn't have done more to make our trip as fabulous as it was. Everything about the holiday was perfect - we'll be back!

Kevin, myself (deb) Amber & Brighde stayed with Rob & Bev from 22.12 2012 - 4.1 2013. To say the stay was amazing is an understatement! Their hospitality is outstanding. The apartments are superb. Now, where do I start.......the first thing when we arrived was seeing such friendly faces. They are such lovely people. Then the next thing was the Xmas tree in our apartment, which was fab as we had 2daughters who love XMas

I had a massage with Rob, as did the rest of my family (we were 16) which was very relaxing as he's the masseur for FIlzmoos. The apartment itself is immaculate and the location is wonderful. They advised us where to eat for XMas and New Year so we booked it in advance(Jagdhof). What great nights!

Our daughter Amber was 15 on 29.12 2012 and ROb &Bev sorted the cake out for us. They could not do enough for us. They took us skiing. Bev tried to teach me, and she succeeded. Rob and Brighde were crazy!!

We arrived at Haus Spencer with a lovely welcome by Rob and Bev. The room was amazing - it was a big apartment, it was spotless, it was much, much more than we expected. When we saw the room there was a Christmas tree put up for us and beautiful ornaments around the apartment. It is a non smoking place which is great. There was only four of us (2 children and 2 adults) in an apartment with two rooms, but could hold seven. After a couple of days (2) Rob and Bev were no longer just the owners of the apartments, they became our good friends. Th accommodation was fabulous! If we could rate Haus Spencer higher believe me we would. We have been to Filzmoos twice now and we've stayed in Haus Spencer once, but if we go to Filzmoos again we will definitely go to Haus Spencer with no doubt! We recommend Haus Spencer 100% for the amazing apartment and for the kindness of the wonderful Rob and Bev.

We have just returned from an excellent weeks stay with Rob and Bev at Haus Spencer. We cannot thank them enough for their kindness and hospitality nothing was too much trouble and we are extremely grateful to them for making our holiday such an enjoyable and memorable one. The accommdation was very comfortable, well equiped and spotlessly clean. The village and surrounding countryside were beautiful and everything is so well looked after, making a pictuesque setting for some breathaking walks (quite literally, considering the steepness of some of the footpaths!)
