We have just returned from a great weeks skiing.
The hotel is very very clean.The rooms were basic, but again super clean and warm.
The hotel staff are great and our Nielsons rep Ryan was great too.
The food was fantastic and plentiful. The local wine is very nice and the beer is amazing.
You must try the hot chocolate with the local rum shot in Mmmm. This will knock you out just before bed.
The skiing was great, as the beginner slope is just out side the rear of the hotel ( great to warm up on ). The ski school met there too. Three of our party had booked 5 days lessons and all loved the experience and are going skiing next year too. Good job ( blue ski school )
Food in the cafe area of the hotel is very very nice. You must try the spaghetti bolognaise.
We found that food and drink is not expensive in the resort.
We would all definitely return to this hotel. Excellent value for money.

This hotel is clean, friendly and right on the slopes........ What more do you need from a skiing holiday? The rooms are the largest we've had during ski holidays and we have stayed in lots of places. The staff were friendly and seems to work very hard. If you need anything have a word with the barman and he will make sure it is sorted out. The food is really good. Sometimes you're not quite sure what you'll be getting as some of the menus get a bit lost in translation but we found it added to the pleasure of the holiday. No matter what we were served it was well cooked and tasty. I was a bit concerned when reading about the resort as most reviews bill this as a beginners/ intermediate resort. My partner and I are very comfortable on red runs and will tackle most blacks and we had plenty to ski on. If you're at this level skiing you'll probably be able to ski the mountain in Neiderau in a day however access to Auffach via the bus is easy and opens up another two mountains with some fantastic red runs ........ Nice.
My top tips would be:
Pick up your ski equipment on SAturday if you've hired it. The hire shop was easy and happy to accommodate.
Get on the mountain first day if you can (on the SAturday).... But not a minute before 3pm as this will count as 1day skiing and you'll lose your last day
If you're comfortable on red runs go over to Auffach on your first full day. A lot of the other guest will be getting sorted out in ski school so the ski bus was empty as were the slopes when we got there. A full mountain and a full day almost to ourselves.
The black runs in Neiderau are no more challenging than some of the steep parts on the reds so go and have a go. As they are shown as black very few people seem to go on them and once again we found ourselves with the slopes almost to ourselves.
If you want a day off from skiing I recommend the walk in to Oberau. Takes about an hour and half and is lovely.

The only downside is the awful music played in the bar (although it seems to be the same played in all of the bars) and the fact that Austrians still smoke indoors which is not pleasant for us Brits who are no longer used to a smokey atmosphere.

For an experienced skier it may not be an obvious first choice but I would recommend it for ease, closeness to slopes, friendliness and good fun

We stay in the Alpenland in the winter for skiing and in the summer for just relaxing away from it all. An easy-going home from home, we have just booked 9th stay there. Good sized rooms, some have shower/baths and some have only showers, so when booking just ask Mira or Herbert for your preference.

Step out of the boot room and you are a few steps from the slopes and the first lift. The ski area (the area your lift pass covers) has just been enlarged with the addition of a new gondola at Auffach and now has 145 km of ski runs.

Food is always good with a large buffet breakfast, a choice of 3 course evening meal, the hotel even has a lunchtime self service restaurant for busy skiers, and being Austria it is very good value.

Summer is on the whole a quieter affair, the hotel being mainly used for coach trips but nonetheless a relaxing quite hotel. Twice now we have stayed in the summer and been the only guests for a few days!


Looking forward to getting back there on the 12th Jan 2013!!!

Room Tip: Rooms next to the church can be a bit noisy with the bells ringing....

Stayed for a week here over new year. We are no strangers to Niederau and chose this hotel as it was exceptionally good value and we knew we would be right next to the slopes. A truly ski to the door destination. Rooms clean and a fair size. In our experience having stayed at two other establishments, rooms in Niederau are very much the same. The food was nice and plentiful but breakfast selection could be a little broader. But it's the location of this place that just can't be beaten. We love Niederau but would like to keep it a secret because for us it's just perfect the way it is and don't want it to become commercialised. It's just charming the way it is.

Just returned yesterday from our first skiing trip. I cannot fault this hotel, the food was fantastic, the rooms more than adequate and the staff so welcoming and friendly. The ski school is literally at the back door and the hotel is well situated in the village. There's a supermarket within 10 minutes walk and a bank literally over the road.
We had a room on the top floor with a beautiful view from the balcony right down the valley, the hotel is warm and cosy, particularly when the temp is well below freezing. The button lifts and gondola are only a couple of minutes walk from the back door where there is a heated conservatory where you can have a drink or food without having to remove all your ski gear.

Our only problem was the airport at Innsbruck being snowed in on our return home and having to transfer to Munich which was a long and tiring journey but we are undeterred and will b back next year.

Hotel Alpenland is a lovely comfortable hotel. It has a welcome homely feel and is in a perfect location for the ski schools. We stayed on the top floor and had a balcony and two rooms which was great as we had our two boys with us. The room was very basic and the bathroom was tiny. The water temperature was also very hit and miss which was a bit of a problem with small children.
Our experience with the ski hire shop was excellent and we were there on a busy Christmas Eve.
The food at the hotel was good with plenty of choice. One habit which was picked up on by the chidren was the fact that the waiters whisked away your plates while the others at the table were stil eating.
We stayed there as part of a package with Neilson skiing and we were very impressed by the company and Martin the rep in particular.
This was our first family ski trip and it has made us start to save up immediately for our next one.
