Thanks very much to the other trip advisor reviewers. I think this is an amazing family run hotel. I am here now at half term (room 216, huge and no noise issues yet). I speak no german but understand a little so i feel a bit rude but unlike last months reviewer have no issues being understood or understanding (menus etc in english).
I am here with my 2 young girls and feel welcome as a single parent, many guests are english (or speaking english e.g. Those from netherlands), and we arrived after the 6:00-7:30 dinner time but were still welcomed and offered food. The bar area is smoky but no need to enter it as the rear hotel entrance is the one you use to go to and from the slopes.
In common with niederau in general people are friendly and, it seems, mostly english, mostly from north of london. The playroom is a bit tired and anarchic (people let their kids go in alone) but better than none. There is tabletennis room too. And a sauna (naked....someone left the door open so have checked!)
Austrian food is very amusing and we seem to share our menus with many other hotels having talked to other (soup with batter balls anyone?). I think the food here is very typical austria, it was the same in other places, and there are about 6 courses including salad so nobody is going to go hungry (not sure its ideal for veggies unless you love spinach!). I wish there was bread with dinner for my fussy kids to eat. Breakfast is lovely.
The hotel is especially convenient for the blue ski school, you can get at locker at a few places near the gondola but that is pointless if you are skiing with the blues (not finding them great for the 3 year old, not as kind as you would hope). It is the closest i have ever been to the slopes.
All in all i'm finding this place terrific value for money and i can see why both the hotel and niederau attract return visitors. I would be back in a flash, too bad it's fully booked for my next trip....book early :-)
