“First Rate Accommodation in Idilic Setting”
Reviewed 10 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

This was our first visit to this region and is one that will stay in the memory for a long time for all the right reasons. Our hosts, Rob & Bev Spencer were absolutely brilliant. They knew the area intimately and were able to maker excellent recommendations for the best places to ski (depending on ability), the best restaurants (of which there are many in Filzmoos) and the best things to do (the horse drawn sleigh ride up the mountain and a meal at the Oberhofalm at the top is highly recommended). They will also help you get the best deal on ski hire and having an English couple like Rob & Bev whose command of German is excellent can be a massive help. We stayed in the larger of their two apartments - Bischofsmutze which was extremely spacious for me, my wife and our two teenage daughters. The apartment was spotless and beautifully appointed with great attention to detail. It's location is ideal, only 2 to 3 minutes walk away from the well stocked local supermarket (Mpreis) and also within easy walking distance of all the local ski lifts and gondolas. Filzmoos is also blessed with a good number of excellent restaurants again within easy walking distance. A typical hearty Austrian evening meal (two courses) for four people with drinks will cost around €20 a head and you won't leave hungry! There are also many excellent places for great coffee and cake if you can manage it. In summary, there is nothing I can fault about our hosts, Haus Spencer and Filzmoos. If you want the perfect winter holiday, look no further, it's all here and we loved it so much that we've already booked in with Rob & Bev again for Christmas 2015!

“Superb hospitality and great facilities !”
Reviewed 22 March 2013 for a stay in February 2013

This place is just ideal. Where do I start ? Rob and Bev Spencer are the most welcoming and attentive hosts for whom nothing is too much trouble. The Haus of Spencer is a wonderful apartment with modern clean facilities and wonderful views. It is just 10 minutes walk from everything in Filzmoos - the main ski lifts, the shops and restaurants, and of course the great apres ski locations !

“Welcoming, spacious and truly Austrian.”
Reviewed 6 March 2013 for a stay in February 2013

We spent a fabulous week at Haus Spencer with our three children and friends. Both apartments were comfortable, warm, spacious and fully equiped with all we needed. Perfectly located for the gondala lift and supermarket.
The atmosphere was just lovely, and we especially enjoyed the wine and chocolates we received on arrival. It was the little touches that made our trip - the candles lite on our return from a night out, the ski advice from Rob and Bev, Birthday cards left by the door, ski-ing with our hosts and a glass of snapps when the ski-ing did not go so well for everyone in our party.
A memorable week and we are looking forward to returning next year.
