This was a last minute deal bed and breakfast deal through Neilson's. We arrived by coach mid-afternoon and were dropped off at the bottom of the hill (most of Saalbach is a pedestrianised area) and informed by our rep were the hotels were located. We were lucky, ours was the first hotel on the right!!!!!
Room: We were booked into our rooms and given security cards to get in and out of the hotel and ski/board room. This was because under the hotel was a nightclub, we were aware of this at the time of booking and during our time here the the music did not bother us, it was quite muffled. The drunks caused more of a disturbance but this did not bother us at all. Our room was MASSIVE!!! We had a bedroom which fitted twin beds, a large wardrobe with shelves and we even had travel adapters in the room. We also had a living room with a three person sofa and TV and another large wardrobe. The bathroom was quite small in comparison but the shower was always hot and towels were replaced every day. We also had a balcony in both the living room and bedroom, where we left our bottled drinks to stay cold.
Food: Breakfast was continental which consisted of ham, cheese, toast, tea, coffee and rolls quite adequate before going on the slopes, but I did crave for something different towards the end.
Staff: Were helpful when you needed something, but tended to stay out of your way so you could enjoy your holiday rather than annoying you.
Overall: We would definitely go back to Saalbach, the slopes were amazing and for a budget holiday the Hotel Central is more than sufficent. The only downside was the walk to the lifts, although only about 5 minutes walk in ski boots it don't half hurt, just make sure you do not secure your boots until you are either on the gondola or about to put your skiis on. The Apres Ski was fantastic and on more than one occasion got slightly intoxicated without actually realising it until it was too late. Great atmosphere and great people!!!!!
