Three Dads and their 8 year old daughters went on a group holiday for the first time. I was slightly concerned before we went as to the quality of the chalet, having read some poor reviews, however my concerns were unfounded.
We had two rooms booked, one had a two double beds in and the other had two seperate rooms each with double bed , wardrobe and drawers. There was a clean, shared bathroom with shower, this was more than adequate for two dads, Lily and Eloise. The room was clean, fairly recently decorated and the furniture was clean and again fairly new. We were close and on the same level to the dining room which was ideal.
The food was excellently prepared by Troy with help from Mel and Sam. They couldn't do enough for you and were happy to give alternative meals for the girls if needed. Unfortunately even skiing every day couldnt burn of the calories and the never ending supply of wine (not fine wine but drinkable) kept the most hardy of drinkers happy.
The location of the chalet was fine even though a bus rides is required - the bus will stop directly outside the chalet unless the grumpy driver is on and you have to walk 100 yards to the bus stop.
The resort was great for the girls who were on their second ski trip, the instructor was ecellent and as we went out of holiday time there was only 4 in the group. By day three they were up the mountain and by day 6 had carefully came down a red run.
One problem with the Chalet was the lack of wifi which we would have been happy to pay 5 or 10 euros for a week. You could get this free in one of the internet cafes in town.
Also very minor points with breakfast - bigger toaster required!
The ski storage room was a bit tight if a few of you are there at the same time.
As the chalet has tiled floors it can be noisy if people are coming back late at night, but this again was not a big issue.
I would go back to this resort with my wife Sandra and Lily and would stay in the Abendruh without hesitation.
