“Das ist fantastiche”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

Just back from a great weekend at the Apsley. Jim and Tom the hosts couldn't have done more for our group to make the weekend great. As a mixed ability group from beginners to advanced we were all perfectly looked after on the slopes (jim, tom & Matty will teach/guide you if needs be) although the real hosting was done in the après bars. The snow couldnt have been better - fresh powder each night. The skiing at Niederau itself is fine but the real attraction for me is that you smack bang in the middle of a huge amount of skiing with kitzbuhl, ski welt and a load of others just a few minutes ride away in the Apsley bus. Kareoke renditions of sweet child o mine were a particular favourite memory. I will most certainly be back once my knees have stopped aching and my liver has downsized again. Highly recommended.

Stayed February 2013, traveled with friends

What a great place!! Apsley Ski lodge is in an amazing location with access to several excellent Ski areas all under one lift pass. We were there for a week and still have plenty more to explore when we return....which I hope will be very soon! The staff could not have been more helpful, informative and friendly if they tried and the atmosphere at the lodge is fantastic. If your looking for a friendly lodge with a lovely lounge/Bar, great hearty food and relaxed homey feel there is nowhere better!

Thank you for a truly brilliant holiday.

We were a party of 13 (6 adults and 7 children aged from 11 to 17 years), on arrival at Apsley we were all allocated rooms which were very adequate. The decor is a little tired, but anything the lodge lacks in state of the art furnishings it makes up for in SPADES with the warmest welcome from Jim, Steve, Josh, Jan and Martje. These guys are so helpful and friendly, they make you feel as though you are part of the family and evenings are spent in conversation with plenty of laughter and liquid refreshment ranging from pots of tea to Stroh 80 and everything in between! We shared the lodge with two couples and another large family group and everyone was really friendly, in fact one gentleman lent my eldest son his blades for a day to trial.
We'd love to revisit, we think we'll drive next time to really gain the maximum flexibility to visit all the ski areas locally. However, without a car we still managed to ski in Niederau, Auffach and Albachtal with ease thanks to the skibus which runs through the village regularly.
A fabulous Christmas holiday...thanks to everyone at Apsley! (just sorry to have missed meeting Tom!)

Apsley Ski Lodge was fantastic at New Year, After spending a week at the lodge it felt like a home from home. All the staff were extremely friendly and welcoming and went out of their way to help. Highlights included the home cooked food, spacious lounge area, brilliant local knowledge and a great atmosphere. Seeing in 2013 at the lodge couldn't have been better. Canapes, fireworks all included in a night to remember. Excellent skiing with a wide variety of areas to choose from all easily accessible from the lodge as a centre point. We look forward to returning as soon as possible.

I can't thank Tom & Jim enough for a fantastic experience whilst staying at the Apsley. These guys are 2 school friends (not a couple) who've now realised their dream to run their own lodge. The bar/restaurant for example is filled with photos of friends and family. Consequently, the Apsley is a warm and friendly place to stay, serving "proper" home-cooked food (thanks Steve) and drinks at very reasonable prices. The rooms are all en-suite, clean and cosy and there is even a lounge area where you can crash on a sofa and watch dvds after a hard day on the slopes. The lodge is 5 mins walk away from the gondola at Niederau, so location is perfect. We've been to the area before, but the biggest difference between the Apsley and the other lodges is that Tom & Jim will go much further to make sure your experience is as unforgettable as it can be. For example, they personally took us out to the SkiWelt (half an hour away) and showed us the best runs. Nothing is too much trouble. We are all going again this year. If you love to ski and you love great hospitality, then you need to book up. You will not be disappointed.
Thanks again guys for the best skiing holiday ever!!!
See you soon.

Room Tip: Just ask Jim for the room with the wrap-around balcony.

Aspley lodge was a great place to stay! Felt like stating at a mate's house. Hospitable and social staff that went out of their way to ensure quality service and fun times. Great selection of activities and restaurants within walking distance at a great price. Accommodation was clean and good value, great entertainment and resting areas. Thanks guys for making our time in niederau so memorable! Will be back for ski season for sure!
Hot tip if u stay here- Listen out for ringing of the cow bell behind the bar :)

This small and friendly ski lodge run by Tom and Jim offers great skiing and hospitality at a price that anyone can afford. The rooms are spotlessly clean and very comfortable - all are en suite. The food is homely and hearty, and it's fun sitting down together with the other guests at the end of day's skiing. The resort of Niederau is small, but the staff are very willing to transport you to the neighbouring resorts of Auffach (15 min drive and lots of good skiing for all levels) or even to Kitzbuhl (30 mins and world class skiing on offer). There's plenty of craic in the bar in the evening, but also space to relax and watch TV if you fancy a quieter evening.
