Great holiday. Lovely big rooms with a large double bed, modern clean bathroom, plenty of wardrobe and cupboard space, safe and another locking cupboard, lounge area, two settee (that could double as extra beds), balcony with lovely view, fridge. Rooms get hot at night and there is no air conditioning. Beds are a little hard, but those are my only gripes.This is a family run hotel, and everyone is very helpful. They all work so hard.There is a small pool, and health centre, etc. Sun terrace and bar good. Try the Schnapps - I recommend the apricot. Food was good. Buffet breakfast with plenty of choice - mainly cold food, but with bacon and egg some days, or boiled eggs available some days as a hot options. All the jams are homemade. For the evening meals you have a salad bar, then a soup course, then a choice of three main meals, and pudding. You select your choices at breakfast for the evening. They also provide you with a packed lunch which is really helpful (this may just be for people who booked through Inghams). Oberau is a lovely village. There is a small tourist train that runs through the valley from village to village (15 euros for a weekly ticket) - well worth getting. The ski lift in nearby Niederau was open when we went in May -others don't open till June. When staying in this area - the Wildschonau Valley - you get given a Summer card that includes access to a number of tourist attractions such as the Farmers Museum, the Wood Museum etc, use of the ski lifts, use of the outdoor pool, tennis courts, and guided walks - all free! We also went to Innsbruck for the day - took the bus to Worgl, then the train to Innsbruck. It cost about 4.10 euros on the bus, and 22 - 37 euros return on the train - depending on if you take the slow train or fast train. We paid for the fast train then found that there was only 15 minutes difference - so perhaps not worth it. Innsbruck was nice.
Take good walking shoes as many of the walks are steep and you need the right kit. We bought walking poles this years and they were worth every penny!
