“Okay if you get it cheap”
Reviewed 6 January 2011

This place is something of a mixed bag. It has 4 stars but really it's not a 4 star hotel.

Room: Our room was very dated and a bit tatty, although the bathroom looked like it had been upgraded over the last few years. On the plus side it had plenty storage and hooks for hanging up ski gear. We didn't have any problem with thin walls which someone else mentioned (maybe our neighbours did!).

Common parts: I thought the main dining room was very nice and they had made an effort to make it look festive. Wasn't two impressed that they tried to stick my wife and I at a small table with another couple - not exactly romantic. They gave us a table to ourselves but others had to share. There is a good bootroom with plenty space and heated boot stands. The bar is kind of an extension to the reception - not much atmosphere but then again you won't spend much time in it due to the price of the drinks! On the first night I bought a beer and a small sect - was more than 15 euros. The next day I found the sect in Spar for about 2 euros. The mark up on the wine was similar. Best bet is the house wine - 10 euros for 0.5L and drinkable. A pint is E4.30 - the most expensive I saw the whole week.

Location: Very good. Near the centre of the village where the bars are. 5 minute walk from the local slopes and lift. There's a bus stop right outside that will take you to Aberg where the main ski area is.

Service: Mixed. I asked for a glass of water one night and the manageress was just plain rude. The waiting staff were attentive enough. They tell you to come for dinner at 6:30pm but bear in mind you won't get a starter until about 7:25pm (unless your Austrian/German in which case you'll always get served first even though you are having the same food).

Food: I thought the hotel food was pretty good. As usual in Austria it was quite basic but tasty, hot and there was plenty of it.

Slopes: Much better than I expected. Even this early in the season they were in good shape - full cover right down to the resort. There is a very good snow making system. Some of the steaper runs were scraped back to base in the afternoon which made for some scary moments on the board. Lots of good mountain huts for lunch and beers.

Prices: Outside the hotel I found the prices to be pretty good. About E3.30 for a pint. A cooked lunch for us both with a beer for me and soft drink for the missus came to about 23 euros up on the mountain - pretty good value, especially compared to France. As mentioned above the hotel prices are very expensive. Also, the dancing bar in the basement only does small beers for the same price as a large beer anywhere else in town - just annoying.

Nightlife: The apres ski bar on the main street is pretty good between 4-7pm as is the Alm Hut further up the street. There's a hotel right at the end of the road as you leave the town which does beers for E2.50 a pint between 4-6pm and the staff are nice although its a bit quiet. The main bar at night is Chile's. Its quite good fun. One thing that really struck me is the smoking - everyone seems to smoke in Austria all the time and you really notice it in bars.

In conclusion if you get a good deal (say around £600 for the week half board including flights, transfers and supplements for travel from Scotland) I'd say you'll be happy enough. If you pay much more you'll probably be disapointed.

My god, how this place ever got 4 stars, I can only imagine.

This place got rave reviews before we booked it, but when we got here, we realised that the dross that come here really must think that having a cleaner for a room makes it a classy hotel.

This place sucks.

The staff are not unpleasant, they just don't know what a 4 star hotel looks like. The walls are so thin, you'll hear all the pissing from guests in the next few rooms. Dinner is only between 6.30-7.00, and when you do get it, it reminds you of being a student - but not the dinners at college; it's like the dinners your mate Dan cooked in a mug.

If after this you still want to go for it, at least bring your own booze. And make sure you drink a large amount of it before arrival.

Reviewed 30 December 2010

we have just returned from Christmas in Maria Alm, the hotel was a four star with four star service from Joeseph and Micky and Rose. Nothing was too much trouble, although it was very quiet when we went. The Hotel was extremely clean.
The rooms were large and spacious for 4 with a lovely balcony and view of the mountain and church.
The food was excellent a choice of 3 with vegetarian being well catered for. Meals were served relatively early which really suited us with our 3 year old and 16 year old. and if the food didnt suit the children they could opt for the kids menu. The drinks were slightly expensive but no different to the rest of Austria.
The resort was orientated towards children and family. We met some lovely people andWe cant wait to go back
