We stayed at the Pension Claudia which is part of the Hotel Hochfilzer, and is located towards the end of Ellmau in a pretty location. The pension is set in its own grounds with comfortable seating and loungers.The views to the front are lovely, and the 'Wilder Kaiser' mountain range fills the stair windows admirably.
The building is of an age but has been modernised, and is clean and welcoming. One mystery is that although there is a no smoking policy, there does seem to be a faint whiff of cigarette smoke when you enter the property. Nothing bad, but strange.
Our room was clean, with Austrain twinn beds, a spacious living area, ensuite facilities and a balcony with a great view. The rooms were cleaned every day whilst we were at breakfast.
Breakfast is continental style with meats, cheese, eggs spreads, great breads and cereals etc. The friendly staff speak excellent English, but as always a little of the local language is met with enthusiasm.
Evening meals are taken at the Hochfilzer hotel, a short walk up the road and you have full access to that hotels facilities, a real bonus. Just ask at the hotel reception and they will advise you.
One point is that there is no real communal area in the pension and in bad weather this means either retreating to your room, or preferably the hotels lovely wellness centre!
One problem my partner had, was the location to the Ellmau Alm, next door which on a Friday had a 'late revellers' problem. I slept through most of it however and it was a one off.
An excellent choice, in a good location. We will be back in January for the Skiing.
