We have just returned from Hotel Tirolerhof today after an excellent two weeks stay, when it snowed and snowed. Martyn (The Manager) and his excellent team made us very welcome and kindly allowing us to have the same room as before, overlooking the piste. All facilities are of a high standard. The staff are always very approachable from reception to the restaurant.
If you have a problem just ask and it will be solved. The meals are good, very good with a wide selection of local dishes, which are plentiful. Put it this way, the salopettes fit more snuggly.
Local ski school next door should you need lessons. If you prefer to walk instead of ski, there are a number of pathways to enjoy, and if it snows, they are maintained very quickly. Austria just keeps going...unlike another country I could mention.
A nice walk is from Oberau to Neiderau about an hour slight gradients only, and then as you enter Neiderau, make use of the 'Impess' supermarket, they serve an excellent latte and pastry...wasitline watching is not good. The views are stunning....puts Tesco's and Asda's to shame. There is a ski shuttle bus which runs along the valley to all three piste's, the pass is issued by your hotel...and it's free.
Oberau is a quiet location, but they have the necessary facilities, banks, chemist, supermarket/s, ski equipment rental shops and the doctors......they do a nice line in plasters and not the sticky ones.....so they tell me.
I would highly recommend The Hotel Tirolerhof for the traditional food and entertainment. Another visit is planned in summer....sorry Martyn. To enable us to enjoy the summer countryside.
