If you like small hotels where you are treated as a friend rather than a mere client you will love it here. Hans and the rest of the staff really go out of their way to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. Oberau is a small village so don't expect nightlife especially not outside the ski season though Hans provided entertainment on three evenings (a musical duo, complimentary cocktails followed by a film in English and a wine tasting which was free of charge to hotel guests.) The latter was particularly interesting as he is so knowledgeable about wine and is in addition such an amusing story teller.
Breakfast on a morning was always plentiful with a large array of breads, cereals, yoghurt, fruit, eggs, cheese and cold meats. We were on a walking package with Inghams and the hotel seemed happy to bring forward the breakfast time when we had an early start. A special mention here goes to Sandra the breakfast waitress who was always most pleasant and obliging even when, at times, she seemed rushed off her feet. Menus for the evening meal (4 courses with three choices of main) were on the tables in the morning. On the day we left Hans was up early to see we got some breakfast before we went. He even offered the transfer driver a coffee so we could finish our drinks!
The only thing that disappointed us was the weather - rain from Monday to Thursday morning. Fortunately we had full waterproof clothing and walked regardless but we did miss out on some spectacular views and some of the walks had to be modified for safety reasons. The Wildschoenau walking programme was very good indeed (5 guided walks) and the guide herself, a local girl called Sonja, was first rate. We are tempted to do the same package again at a time when the weather is better. If we do we will be adding our number to the very many repeat guests at the Kellerwirt.
