Reviewed 11 August 2013

Stayed here for two weeks the wife and I. Hiking.
This was out third time in Niederau . This hotel was great and the meals excellent, quality and quantity. The room was fine. Pleasant balcony.
Cleanliness excellent.
Staff great in all respects. I was way too late for dinner one night. Big smiles,tell us what you want and we will get it for you.
We will be back next year.
Forget the negative comments I have stayed in some expensive luxury hotels and when you strip it all down this is good good good. And in terms of value for money it is excellent.
Keep it up Shneerburgers.
Peter and Olga.

Stayed here in June 2013 for a Crystal Summer Holiday. Being a 3* don't expect luxury but as previous reviewers have noted the staff are helpful and the rooms adequately equipped. I stayed in a single room which was a bit small but is OK for a week and does have enough storage for clothes plus a generous coat rack for all the hiking gear. Shower was a bit of a gamble as to the temperature of the water so be careful there. Food - Breakfast was typical buffet with lots of choice, evening meal was variable but never awful and some dishes served were very good.
The main advantage for summer hikers at this hotel is the Wildschonau card which gives you free cable cars at Niederau and Auffach plus discounts on other services through the week.

My husband and I stayed in the Schneeberger In March. This was our first visit to this Hotel and this ski area. We will return to both !

We stayed in room 216 which was superb, very spacious, quiet and with great views.
I have read some of the negative reports regarding the smell of smoking. Perhaps the people complaining should have made themselves aware of how Austria still allows smoking in public places !. We are non smokers and would have prefered no smoking but we enjoyed pre and post dinner drinks at the bar each evening in the company of smoking locals.

The family owners and other staff could not have been more kinder or more attentive.

Our only criticism would be the dining area. People staying in the Hotel do not use the main restaurant area which is for the passing trade, both holidmakers and locals. We were seated in a less attractive room which lacked ambience. ( Maybe some dimmed lighting would have helped during the evening meal ! ) There was a three choice menu each evening and we found the food very good.

We are seasoned skiers and knew that the local skiing would be limiting but the red and the black from the top station were wonderful. It was almost like having the mountain to ourselves. The nursery slopes down at the village level looked great and ideal for people learning.
We made full use of the total lift pass and caught the ski bus most mornings to the neighbouring extended ski area. The whole area pass,in a beautiful valley, now provides excellent skiing for a full week.

We had a great holiday and will return to the Hotel Schneeberger

Having been to Niederau several years ago, we were looking forward to our return visit. The Hotel was better than the one we stayed in last time. The room was incredibly spacious, well turned out and cleaned daily and could not be faulted.
The hotel staff were incredibly helpful and friendly, especially the manager Christian. They all went out of their way to make our stay as enjoyable as possible.

The hotel food was very good and plentiful with a good variety of dishes. The only downside was having to decide at breakfast what you wanted for your tea. Breakfast is typically European but with enough variety to suit most people

The hotel is situated about 2-300 metres from the nearest ski lift and the Blue Ski School who also come highly recommended.
The resort has a good mix of blues and reds with some good blacks, but the instructors recon that the reds in Niederau are more technical than the ones at Auffach and are somewhere between reds and blacks.
There is a good ski storage/equipment area in the basement with a side entrance making the trip from/to the ski slopes that little bit easier.
Having left an item of clothing behind at the hotel after departure, all that was required was a quick email to Christian and said item was packaged and posted back to the UK at no cost to myself.
Would I stay in this hotel again? Most definitely
Would I recommend this hotel to friend and family, again most definitely.
As for the comments about smoking, you have to bear in mind that almost all establishments suffer from the same problem as there is no ban on smoking indoors in Austria The the bar in this hotel is no worse than the bar in any other establishment we went in.
I would score this hotel as a 9 out of 10, only because I have yet to score anywhere a 10 out of 10

Stayed here for 1 week with partner for skiing through Crystal Ski. Have skied in Austria before and have stayed half board before. This was far superior.
The room was a "standard" room but it was very large, having an Austrian twin bed, a single and a sofa. Others have commented on noise - we were on the top floor and did not hear any music or even anyone else through the week, this is not surprising as Niederau is by far the quietest ski resort I have stayed in.
The food was excellent. Breakfast was served in the breakfast rooms and was the usual continental style. We were served dinner in the main restaurant and the meal was always excellent. Salad bar followed by soup, starter, main and desert. The service (in spite of the restaurant always being busy) was efficient and friendly.
The sauna suite was lovely - but remember this is Austria and no swimming costumes are allowed.
Boot room was excellent with a sofa for donning ski boots in comfort and the lift goes down to the basement so after a hard day skiing there was no need to carry skis downstairs or climb the stairs back up to the bed rooms.
There were not many English guests the week we stayed, which we enjoyed. The staff were able to speak English but I enjoyed trying out my very rusty school German and this seemed to be appreciated.
As other people have mentioned, smoking appears to still be allowed in Austria (although there is technically a ban). The bar area was very smoky at times but the restaurant was surprisingly unaffected and smoking is not allowed in the rooms. For us, the smoking was the only downside of the whole holiday.
Overall excellent hotel and excellent holiday.

Room Tip: Try to get a room on the 2nd or 3rd floor to be away from the bar/nightclub.

We stayed in the Schneeburger for a one week skiing holiday from 19 to 26 Jan 13. The good bits: The room was spacious and nice and clean. The hotel is in a great location. The skiing in the newly connected ski jewel is fantastic. At the end of each day we finished off with some après ski in Bobo's ski bar which was great. Sadly the hotel was the main let down of the holiday. Although our room was OK it was above the hotel night club which meant 7 sleepless nights, this was very annoying. The smell of smoke in the hotel was overwhelming. I really don't like a lung full of smoke on the way to breakfast, really awful and this was from the hotel owners not other guests. I know there is not a smoking ban in Austria but they need to be far more in touch with the needs of their guests, not their own personal preferences. The food was average at best. Our table was in the back room which resembled a school canteen. The nice traditional restaurant at the front of the hotel was reserved for non hotel guests which was disappointing to say the least. The staff were rather sullen and we certainly weren’t met with a smile at each meal time. It was more like they were doing us a favour, less for one of the girls (sorry I can’t remember her name). On one occasion my wife was trying to pay our dinner drinks bill and three members of staff, including the manager just looked at her then walked away, very ignorant. All in all it’s a great location with good skiing but my advice is to stay in the Hotel Harfenwirt. We certainly will next time.

Could not fault the hotel or the staff, other reviews mention the smell of smoke, you have to remember there is no smoking ban in Austria and even as a non smoker I did not find it overpowering. There was a good choice of food on evening meal menu and breakfast was more than adequate. Rooms are cleaned daily and we had the pleasure of the ”mini-suite”, a much larger than average room with 2 bathrooms!!. The hotel has a popular restaurant with an excellent a la carte menu. The Schneeberger family own and run the hotel and are rightly proud of their business. Would definitely recommend and will use again when in Neiderau.
