Really enjoyed our stay here, I could not fault it for the price we paid compared to some of the hotels in the centre that were almost double! The only snag was the distance from the main Penkenbahn gondola and the centre for a meal & drinks on an evening. During the day there is a free ski bus that comes just down from the reception to the penkenbahn gondola for all lift pass holders which also pretty much covers the whole area and around, however despite reviews saying this runs every 15mins, be warned that there are only two buses 15mins apart before 9am but then they are every 45mins which is fine unless you have lessons to get to on the 1st morning for 930am! then you are struggling if you miss one! Buses back again are every 45mins from right outside the penkenbahn but stop at about 430! So if you miss this a taxi is 5euro! If you don't have lessons to get to on a morning, a far better option is to get the bus on the opposite side of the road to the reception which takes slightly longer but goes to the Horbergbahn gondola where there is far less queuing and you dont seem to be so packed on luke sardines so a definate must!
It was a brisk 20-25min walk for us on an evening into the centre where the bars and restaurants are then we usually got a taxi back for 7euro, which if used every day still makes this B&B a far cheaper option than staying in the centre!
We were staying in a room in the building opposite the main reception of Scheeberger which was great! Really spacious, cleaned and fresh towels brought every day. It was also lovely and quiet which you probably won't get on an evening in the centre of Mayrhofen!
Breakfast was simple but delicious! Although be sure to go before 9am as we didn't on one morning and found there wasn't much left despite being told it didn't close until 930am! The staff are good though so asking for more wouldn't be a problem for them.
I would definately stay here again mainy for cost reasons as this far outweighed the issue of being a little furter out than most!
