“Couldn't ask for more!”
Reviewed 4 January 2014

After arriving around 4 hours later than planned (12:30a.m.) at Elizabeths Pension, we found our room and a lovely plate of hams, cheeses and pickles with a basket of bread to greet us. The room was spacious, airy and spotless with the bathroom on par with. We were made to feel very welcome the next morning by Elizabeth and the varied breakfast buffet was enough to gear us up for the day. Dinner is a taste of Austria and delicious everytime! The location is absolutely ideal for all amenities; nowhere is far at all. The supermarket at the bottom of "town" is a mere 5-10min walk. Our room (26) along with 5(?) others share a balcony that's directly in front of the Grossberg lift and Schischule area. The "bashers" DON'T make that much noise, but, if it does seem loud -tip of the day- close the window! We stayed over X-Mas and, on X-Mas Day (24th in Austria), were treated to an early evening get together with other guests, for carols sung by her sister and niece and where we were all given a token gift by Elizabeth - which speaks volumes for the lady. I will agree on the soap and tea/coffee facilities front but on the face of it, Elizabeth and her team of friendly girls and guys are a shining example of what Filzmoos is all about; friendliness and value all round! If it's homely you're after, you couldn't ask for more!

My wife and I stayed here for a weeks skiing. Elizabeth and 'Briggy' make you feel very welcome. The food is excellent Austrian fare, cooked and presented well. There is not a choice of dish at dinner, but we both enjoyed everything that was served. The rooms are spotless - maids come in every day - and warm. The bathroom and shower are well appointed and practical, I agree with a previous review that a small bar of soap in the bathroom would be good. The boot-room is heated and airy. The sauna is small, but during our stay we were the only people using it. Location couldn't be better, opposite the bus stop and chairlift and a few minutes walk to the village.

Room Tip: I've noted that some guests were disturbed by the piste bashers at the front of the hotel. This...

Elizabeth is very welcoming, is clear about times for breakfast and dinner and provides ample, well cooked food. The rooms are lovely, ours looked out over the slopes. Others have moaned about the noise of the piste badgers but I thought it was fascinating. This is not a 'plastic' anonymous hotel, it is a small, friendly home from home in one of the best locations in the village

there are too many negatives that outweigh the positives. The Pension Wieser is fantastically located for the ski lifts, ski schools, ski bus stop and at the top end of town so within easy walking distance of bars/shops etc with marvellous views so it scores highly on this aspect. It is on the main road and friends within our group who had rooms at the front complained of the noise from the 'piste bashers' that operated into the early hours and the snow ploughs which would start at 5am clearing the car park opposite. The rooms are warm and clean and the showers are fantastic, however they are poorly equipped : no soap, small towels, no drink making facilities or hair driers. We used the sauna three times during the week and can recommend it after a days skiing. One of the main reason's we booked this guesthouse was because it advertised within the Inghams brochure as catering for 'gluten free' dietary requirements as my wife is coeliac. Regretfully this is not the case: either the owners don't understand the coeliac condition or they can't be bothered to offer gluten free food. On more than one occasion my wife was presented with a plate of food which she couldn't eat yet the staff clearly knew of her dietary requirements as we told them upon arrival and our booking documentation reflected this. After complaining to the staff, we ended up being 'shunned' by the owner. This led to very uncomfortable meal times for not just the two of us, but also the rest of our 9 strong group. I have to mention, as others have done on this site, about the Austrian allowance of smoking within public areas and especially in this guesthouse. The communal lounge area is at the foot of the open staircase which leads to the to guest room floors so cigarette smoke permeates to all levels - simply unacceptable to those of us who live and work in smoke free environments. In summary, it would take a few small changes to lift this guesthouse into a great place but it would take a change in attitude on the part of the owners before this happens.

Room Tip: Top floor corner rooms are furthest away from cigarette smoke which wafts up the staircase.

What a wonderful two weeks we have just had. the rooms were brilliant and how many different arrangements of the duvet's and pillows they have. The food was great and plentiful and the staff very friendly and homely. They made us very welcome, in fact I run out of adjectives to describe this great pension. We shall certainly rebook for next year. The free bus pass that you get issued was a great boon and the free glass of wine with your evening meal a real treat.
I would recommend Pension Weiser to anyone looking for a fantastic place to stay

Great little place to stay, traditional style, very clean, well-maintained, friendly, plenty to eat and they cater for veggies with a little advanced warning. No choice of menu, though. We stayed week 28 Jan to 4 Feb 2012 and the snow was so amazing that we were able to ski in-ski out. Grossberg chairlift to main ski slopes is opposite and Happy Filzmoos bar and hotel, for great apres-ski, just down the road. Nursery slopes also close by - along with the ski schools. Not used these so can't comment but they looked very good, especially for children.
Small rooms, but well-lit, hot shower always available.
One drawback is that dinner is at 1830 which means après ski is often cut short as little time to shower and change. Very family orientated, though, so works well with children.
No ski tea except Fridays.
Drinks at dinner, including water, are added to your bill. No bar in the hotel but cosy bars close by.
Smoking allowed in lounge area, which tends to drift up the stairs. Not a negative for everyone but for non-smokers it can be a bit of a nuisance, but wouldn't stop us staying there again. We went with Inghams and unfortunately our room (no.23) was not suitable for a couple - the 2 single beds were not alongside each other, the room is about 13'x8 so a bit of a 'corridor' with the beds in a line against one wall.
Fantastic boot room and sauna area. Spotlessly clean, tidy and warm. Heated boot racks on all night so ski boots are warm and dry and can be put on without too much effort!
Pretty village - ski area gentle cruising and brilliant when snow is good. Very low altitude so could be tricky and icy at times, but the area has a good snow record and there is a large wide red run on the other side, much higher and steeper, served by the Papageno gondola at the other end of the village. Apart from this area, snowboarders will probably find the area a little too gentle.
Negatives: Ski lifts close around 4 pm and there are several old slow T bar drag lifts which are always a bit tricky to get off. The one from Neuberg is very, very long and they should have replaced this with a chairlift long ago.
A bus runs to other Ski Amade resorts on the lift pass 3 times a week: Tues, Weds, Thurs. Only one bus a day with pick up around 0930, return around 1700, cost around 8 euros return. Timetable available. Flachau, Flachauwinkl and Wagrain - all served by this bus but don't miss it or it will be an expensive taxi ride home! Car drivers will have larger choice of ski resorts to visit - all nearby.
Filzmoos is a very good centre for a variety of wintersports: sledge hire, horsedrawn sleigh rides, swimming pool and cross-country skiing (lessons and kit hire available). Lots of upmarket 4 star hotels in the main village - about 10 mins walk from Pension Wieser. Good restaurants. Free ski bus runs throughout the day.

Have just returned from 7 days in Filzmoos at the Pension Wieser. Very friendly hosts and guests. Brilliantly situated literally 200 yards from main chair lift and at most 5 min walk into centre of village. Pension Wieser is clean and perfectly functional. Good buffet breakfast and adequate evening meal although no choice of main course. Only 3 draw backs: no soap/shampoo supplied, as with most Austrian hotels smoking is permitted in the common areas, which I personally find absolutely disgusting and do not understand why it is acceptable to have my clothes stinking of tobacco filth when I get home and finally there is no bar area in the event that you do not wish to go out I the evening.

Would I go back - yes but I do wish the Austrian government would come into lie with the rest of Europe and ban smoking in public areas.
