Staff at this hotel superb, nothing is too much trouble. Family run. The only draw back is that they have extended the front bar area, and no longer has that snug homely feeling. Food very good from breakfast to evening meal. Farmers buffet a little bit of a let down. Bar staff superb. And swimming pool area great. Very close... More

All of the work gave a more contemporary feel to the hotel but did not distract from their traditional values . Ingrid and her staff always give... More

We had our first stay at the Hochfilzer, and indeed in Austria during August, and it exceeded expectations. We had a fabulous time.

Our 10 year old twins really enjoyed the kids' club which took... More

This was our 13th visit and we had another fabulous holiday. Ingrid and her team make you feel very welcome and special. Lovely food and comfortable rooms. Stephan was a great addition to the team. He worked very well with the children and adults alike. He was very helpful discussing walks with guests.

The location in the centre of the village is very good. Food at the hotel is also very good and varied. The room we had was spacious and well looked after. The guided walks were very well led.
