This hotel is lovely with spacious comfortable rooms, windows you can open, good water pressure etc. We were half board which saves the hassle of finding restaurants. The food is Austrian so it's not going to be too sophisticated, but there is plenty of it and we enjoyed it all. Breakfast buffet with hot options. Dinner was a choice of 2 or 3 mains, with a salad buffet, soup, and dessert. All the staff were delightful and couldn't be more helpful. It's family owned and run. The New Year's eve entertainment was fun - perfect for a family hotel. The pool / spa / sauna area is super; the pool is not a swimming pool as it's very small but fine to have a splash about it. The sauna area is just as good or better than a city centre hotel spa, with a relaxing room which they keep really quiet and warm, heaven.
The only down side of it would be the location - Oberau is very small, and the ski-ing is very limited (2 short nursery runs, and a couple of blacks which were closed!) Our daughter (10) was a beginner which was fine but whilst the rest of us could go to other areas (Auffach and Niederau) on the bus, the buses are infrequent, very crowded, and at inconvenient times. So getting back to Oberau for the end of ski school at 3.30 was difficult. The ski school only does beginner children. Next time we would book the ski school in Niederau and all of us go there for the day, but stay in Oberau as the Tirolerhof is so nice. We could also go sledging on the slopes just in front of the hotel in the evenings, with the hotel sledges after the lifts shut.
We met people from all over Europe who go there year after year, and I can see why.
