We stayed here for a week as a family in the garden apartments (which are in a building just opposite the main hotel.)
What a superb break. All the staff were lovely and the food was absolutely fantastic. Lovely fresh salads, great breakfasts and really special evening meals. The only bit that was marginally less than perfect was speed of service in the bar (simply because with meals served in the bar too, the staff were really busy and sometimes under pressure!)
The apartment was a good size, spotless and well kitted out. Walking across the road in our robes to go the pool did feel a little awkward i have to admit, and is the other reason i haven't given the hotel 5*s! Pool facilities were excellent too.
All in all, i would recommend this hotel to anyone and everyone. We loved it and i'd go back tomorrow if i could!!

Another return to this excellent hotel where nothing is too much trouble for any of the employees- everything is set up to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. It was good to see the latest upgrades one long visiting guests like ourselves will find it strange at first but we quickly got use to the new arrangements and found they improved the overall quality of our stay. We will return again (and again).

Stayed: March 2014

This is a very good value ski hotel in a traditional village just a short bus ride from the ski slopes. Accommodation is excellent and affordable, the hotel spa is pleasant, and public rooms are spacious and lively. Food is good, not excellent, but, again, good value. Staff are very friendly. The ski area is only moderately high, so make sue you're here in early to mid-season.

Room Tip: Ask for a mountain view room.

Having been at this hotel over the years in both summer and winter it was wonderful to return and to find it had got even better, if that was ever possible for us.
We were made to feel part of their family from our arrival to our departure and the personal touch of Ingrid was both sincere and considerate in all respects.
The accommodation was as good as always and the new additions to the facilities were impressive and the food and wines were delightful.
In the evening we particularly enjoyed the guitarist who delighted us by playing four of our favourite pieces as an unexpected " encore " for us....magical!!
We look forward to our next visit which we are planning already.

Room Tip: our favourite room is 212 with a spectacular view of the Wilder Kaiser mountains and very spacious

Trip to hotel in January 2014 was excellent, easy shuttle from Munich and on slopes same day. Family enjoyed all the facilities and the hotel is well positioned in the town, transport to slopes easy or there is always an easy walk.
Second trip in March 2014, again highly impressed by the hotel and all the staff.
The slopes offer great skiing and enough challenges to enjoy for a week, and if you get to do the whole area you will have worked hard!
From South Africa this area is easy to get to, facilities are brilliant and well worth all the praise this town Ellamu, Skiwelt Area and Hotel Hochfilzer deserve.
Will be back, for skiing and hopefully get to do some mountain biking in summer time soon.
