The rooms were adequate. After reading other visitors reviews i was a bit dubious and my expectations were low, however, the rooms was fine, the showers was fine and the water pressure was good which is often rare, the toilet was small but then at 6' 4" i can't expect too much.
Breakfast was a buffet affair, the same everyday but enough choice to keep your interest, cereals, breads, ham, cheese, toast, and a variety of yoghurts and jams etc, fine for a good days skiing or hiking.
The location was good as it sits about 100m from the new bus stop at the new ski hire shop which makes it perfect for skiers as the bus is free to the Krippenstein cable car and literally means you have to walk about 150m each way each day and the rest can be skied!! If you want to catch the train the station is about 250-300m away.
The nearest Pizzeria is the bowling ally, 50m away which serves very good food, (we virtually lived here for a week despite trying other restaurants)
The shop and cash machine are about 1km into the village though so that's probably the only downside.
The proprietor is pleasant enough and speaks excellent English, my only criticism would be their refusal to allow us to pay part cash part card as we wanted to burn up Euro's and they demanded payment by one type only. a little unneccesarily inflexible if you ask me.
We would happily stay here again.
