Just got back after one week skiing in Hinterglemm and stayed at the Hotel Austria (it is closer to Hinterglemm than Saalbach). The room we had was excellent although there was no bath which was a shock at first but really good shower so no problem. The staff were very friendly and for a three star hotel the food was very good, Yatz the barman was a star and made our stay even more enjoyable with his good taste in music, he even loaned our 13 year old son his guitar one evening!!!. The ski bus does stop outside the hotel but the timing is a bit hit and miss and service stops at 5pm. If you're a beginner our best tip is to stay on the bus until the other end of the tunnel at Hinterglemm and walk over to the nursery slopes and lesson meeting place (approx 3 mins), not the first stop. For skiers there are a couple of ski routes via T bar lifts into Hinterglemm one of which you can see from the hotel.
We went at the end of the season and the snow and weather were great, skiing brilliant with almost empty slopes, met lots of really nice people and had a fantastic holiday, will definately stay there again. Incidentally this is the only hotel we've stayed in where the owner comes onto the departure coach, takes the mike from the rep and says thank you and goodbye to everyone!
