“Ideal location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2012

We stayed here for a week in January 2012. We booked privately via Ellmau tourist board and drove down to Austria. The apartment was clean and spacious and ideally located. It is next to the village church, so can be noisy as the bells do chime every 15 minutes at times! Fortunately we are used to it, but can be a pain if you are not.
We felt the 2 appliances missing in the kitch were the microwave and toaster. These would have been so handy, but we managed without, as there was a mini grill on the cooker.
There are 2 bus stops for the slopes. Turn left out the door and 50meters up the road is one that seem to come whenever they felt like it. Turn right to the church and there was much more cosistancy to the timetable. We recommend the church ski bus stop.
The apartment is ideally located and the ski bus also drops off at the Kaiserbad liesure complex. We took a day out and totally chilled here. We ate out most evenings and we recommend booking a table as the restaurants are busy until about 9pm, unless you prefer to eat late. There were a few groups of lads in the apartments when we were there, so a little noisy at times, but that was expected when the accomadation is good value and central. There is plenty of parking around, but we parked in the garage of the apartments so we could just leave when the week was up, but there is an extra charge for this. It did come in handy as we had to put the chains on before we left, so saved us doing it outside in the wet & cold!
We had a great weeks skiing and the village is quaint, just a little too small for us. There was long queues at the hartkaiserbahn at peak times, which was a little disapponting, so we imagine peak ski weeks will be a nightmare, such as Fasching week! Altogether, a good week skiing, clean and central location and good value for money. The owners are helpful and towel change is every 2 days.

Saturday 29th Jan- Saturday 4th Feb 2012
The apartment was nice enough for a weeks holiday but not quite what we'd expected! we booked and paid a supplement on a 7 bed apartment for 5 adults and 1 infant thinking it would give us enough space, if we'd of had 7 adults we would not have had the space to live as it was only 2 bedrooms- room 1= 2 single beds, room 2= 3 single beds and there was a sofa that could be made into a bed in the already very small living area so you would be sleeping in a very confined space where you would cook and sit and eat as well. However we just about managed in the small space we did have, but we were disappointed! We booked with Thomson and the rep even checked with their resort manager to checked we'd got what we paid for with paying the extra supplement because she was surprised how small it was.
Our english was not understood very well with the owners however its like that where ever you are in the resort of Ellmau (english is not very well spoken/understood). The apartment is completely self catering i.e you have to buy your own toilet roll etc, however bed linen and towels were included (towels changed once while we were there). The Big supermarket in the centre catered for anything you would need and is very reasonably priced.
The owners of the apartments were really nice and very helpful with what we had requested though in getting us a much needed microwave and a cot for the baby, so we cannot fault them for that.
The apartment was well situated in the middle of Ellmau- 2 minute walk to the centre, and 5-10 minute walk to different ski lifts. The church is very close so if your a light sleeper the constant bells that start at 6am everyday may wake you up early in the mornings!
The resort is very picturesque and easy to walk around and we would definitely visit again however we'd look at different accommodation.
Overall we had a fantastic week spent on the slopes as we'd had brilliant snow conditions. The resort was brilliant and as we'd expected just the accommodation was very average.

Room Tip: If you were a large group going you would need to book for double the amount of people going,unless...
