Spent a week at chalet mara as Inghams Ski customers. The Chalet is well proportioned and spacious and only when everyone is in the lounge did it feel crowded although as we were a large group filling the chalet bar 2 other guests it wasn't really a drama. The 4 Chalet staff were great and looked after us all very well and the food was great if not a little small on the breakfast front.

The location as mentioned by another review is not quite a stated, its not a huge issue but if you were booking based on the 40M to the bus stop its not quite accurate. Its 5 min walk to the bus stop and a 10-15min walk with a child and kit to the Ski school assembly area.

On the whole the location is great! it seems once you get over the use of ski buses to get to and from the slopes its quite straight forward in kaprun and the lift pass gives free access to the buses. 3 separate nearby ski areas, Kitzsteinhorn , Maiskogel and Zell am see all offering something depending on the weather and all pretty easily accessible.

Overall the Chalet is a nice place so whoever is running it can't really change that but inghams are doing a pretty good job this season. It also helps that the snow this year is amazing and well over a meter fell in the week we were there and that always keeps a smile on everyones faces guests and hosts alike! ( unless you blow your knee out on day one but i can't blame chalet mara for that lol)

The chalet is very pleasant and the staff are very friendly. Childcare appears to be excellent (if you can stand the singing!) and on the whole everyone was very helpful. Rooms were of a good size and clean. Food was generally Ok, sometimes good. The wine, coffee, cakes and chocolate were abundant.

The only really bad point about this chalet is the brochure and associated marketting literature which suggests that the nearest bus stop is only 40m away. When we pointed out to the resort manager that it was nearer 0.5km, the response was...'oh, does it still say that in the brochure'...well it does and when you have young kids and skis, boots etc, the difference between 40metres and 500metres is a long way and lot of moaning!

We stayed at the Chalet Mara with our 2 boys aged 5 and 8 on an Esprit family adventure holiday in July/August this year and had an amazing time. The Esprit staff couldn't have been more helpful, informative, enthusiatic or motivated with us or our kids and they made the holiday for us. Our kids have always refused to do childcare before but after the first night of cocoa club (free childcare from 7.30-10pm each evening) we couldn't keep them away. Everything we asked about was instantly arranged by the staff for us with no problems. There was a huuge amount to do locally - summer skiing and toboganning, white water rafting (8yrs +), swimming in the lake at Zell and there was free entry in to a very good swimming complex in Kaprun. I can't recommend this holiday highly enough if you are people who like to be on the go, enjoy the sociability of a chalet and want your holiday to be made as pleasant and easy as possible by the excellent staff. Austria was stunning too!
