Unterbrau is a family-run hotel over several generations. It is quite close to the main lift station in Hopfgarten so even walking in ski boots and carry skis will not be too tiring. The owner and staff are very friendly. Food in the evening is traditional Austrian, although portions are smaller than that you would find in mountain restaurants. Breakfast is also traditional and the hot option is boiled eggs. Beer is at 3.20 for 0.5 litre, and schnapps are cheap too. Room was warm and plenty of hot water on demand. TV in the room is quite big and has lots of channels, including BBC1 and BBC2. It has no lifts. Skis room is not big, but it has a boot heater. It has a sauna but I did not use it. In general, it is an affordable great hotel for ski holidays. At 7am, the church bells will wake most people from their sleep.

I see reviews here saying the owner/ manager read the riot act on arrival, this simply is not the case. Everyone gets the same instruction, this is your key, it is for your room, this is the password for the wifi, we serve breakfast at this time and dinner at another time, ski storage and boot drying is in this location and so on. As a new guest you will need this information and Marcus the manager has it down to a tee. Quick and efficient, this is Austria remember.!!
Marcus could not do enough for me, I arrived having left the charger for my kindle and my phone in Glasgow, this guy bent the laws of time to get me some power. He asked other guests if they had a charger, he lent me a box of chargers and eventually cobbled together one for me to use that worked a treat.total life saver.
I simply cant express enough just how much this guy made my stay an absolute joy. Even when i was horribly late in checking out , this was no trouble.
The room I had was pretty basic but i had everything I would need, 3 bbc channels, decent shower, comfy bed, though I will say a wee kettle and coffee sachets would have been a nice touch.
Breakfast is standard Tirolean fare as was dinner, and as far as i could see, all plates from all 3 courses were cleared by me and all the other guests., and again Marcus and his team work the room effortlessly .
I will definitely be back, maybe even with my charger . many thanks for the excellent stay.

Room Tip: The top floor gets a wee bit too hot.

Have just returned from a weeks skiing in Hopfgarten. Unusually warm for time of year so most of lower slopes slushy, especially mid afternoon onwards. Nevertheless, we managed some good to excellent skiing higher up.
Now, about the hotel. There were ten of us ( mainly oldies !) in our party and one word can sum it up. Brilliant ! Mark the owner was a revelation in terms of friendliness and helping in any and every way he could. He and his staff looked after us with charm and efficiency. Rooms spotlessly clean and evening meals more than enough to eat even for ravenous skiers!
Want good apres ski? then head for the Rondelle bar just along from the ski lift. Cracking time!
All in all a good week but would have been made better with colder temperatures and more snow. But if you have that good fortune, then head for Mark and his Gasthoff Unterbrau. You won`t be disappointed.

Mark the owner? Son of owner? Is a class act. Extremely helpful, especially with my wife's dietary needs. I can not praise the hotel enough. It was a great week. Snow spring like, odd in January but more than enough skiable pistes. Just hope snow soon for people going now.

Such a brilliant, warm, friendly atmosphere! Place to keep ski's and snowboards downstairs and just a short 5 minute walk to the ski lift. Excellent food and exceptionally clean rooms. Staff really helpful and couldn't do enough for us. Highly highly recommended and would not hesitate in the slightest to return.

Like to thank Marcus and his family for making our week in Austria such a great success. With his fantastic good humour there was never a dull moment. We have stayed in many hotels throughout Austria and this is one of the friendliest. Always offering advice and information, suggestions for skiing and mountain huts. As for the hotel, it was spotlessly clean. The rooms were cleaned every day with fresh towels daily and always warm. The breakfast buffet was more than adequate with lots of the usual options and evening meal, a choice of two, was always something for everybody. If you wanted more, you were more than welcome. Bar prices were very resonable. There is a drying room downstairs and the gondola is only a 5 minute walk away. I would recommend this hotel to anybody.
