This is the fifth time my wife and I have stayed in the Harfenwirt ( literally the Harp playing Landlord ). We stay here because we like Herbert, we like his hotel, we always get a good deal and the skiing suits me.
I am pleased to see that recent reviews are all very positive because Herbert and his staff work very hard to give everyone an enjoyable holiday and I have never met anyone who has had a major issue staying here.
Please ignore the few bad reviews they are either ignorant or even worse malicious.
I won't repeat what has recently been said about the hotel facilities except it's very warm and comfortable with good food. However do make sure you attend the ski school presentation on Thursday evenings as you will have a good laugh with the show the instructors put on. Also check with Herbert to see when he will be playing the harp at the Bichlwirt up the road. This is the Thaler family home, parts of which are 500 years old, Herbert's sister Maria runs a comfortable bar there.
For non skiers like my wife there are plenty of places to get a drink any time of day, some good low level walks, two supermarkets, a Tourist Information between Niederau and Oberhau who will also arrange free snowshoeing tours, an interesting farming museum only open on Wednesdays in winter and further up the valley at Auffach a quirky wood museum. Worgl in the Inns valley is a working town with some reasonable shopping and Innsbruck is about an hour away. Make sure you get your Wildschonau guest card for free travel in the valley and discounts.
