The holiday was a last minute ski booking with Neilson & arriving at the Hotel booking into our room was swift, the staff in the restaurant were very efficient & friendly.
The room was well laid out & we were lucky to have a room with a balcony facing south which despite being in March allowed the sun to shine on it most of the day which was wonderful. The bathroom was spotlessly clean & tidy with a shower which had plenty of hot water at all times of the day.
The location of the Hotel was in between both (Hinterglemm 10min walk & Saalbach 15min walk) which both my wife & myself did not mind. If your not a person who likes traveling on foot & held a valid lift pass there was a free bus service in either direction every 20 minutes or so from 9am to 5pm with a bus stop on both side of the road directly outside the Hotel.
The bar area in the basement had a warm & friendly atmosphere typical of hotel bars in Austria but if this is not your cup of tea, it was either walk or pay for a taxi or local bus to get into Saalbach or Hinterglemm for other bars & clubs.
The best thing we thought about the hotel was that it was out of any town centre, was very clean & tidy & the evening meals were plentiful, excellent food & each night a themed menu based on different countries & local fare with the staff dressed to suit the particular theme.
The down side was the room (in March) was a little bit too warm & if the window was opened to cool down, the traffic could be heard on the road outside.
