We chose this hotel and resort for our first skiing trip based on trip-advisor reviews and were not disappointed.
Great location - close to village centre and the slopes, but far enough to avoid the noisier bars at night (although Niederau is fairly peaceful place anyway). Another great thing about the hotel is the location of the button lift across the road meaning you can ski to ski school and also ski home again afterwards
Hotel itself - Clean, warm and a nice layout with reasonably sized rooms for the price. Nice cosy bar with competitive prices. Wifi only works in the bar, but it is free
Rooms - spotlessly clean, warm, comfortable beds, good shower. Plenty of space for storage, but nowhere to hang clothes to dry
Staff - the family who run it are great hosts. Friendly and helpful all the way
Food - every night something which you want to eat. You get a choice of main course each morning for your return that evening. Everything was tasty and hot, just what you want after a day on the slopes. My only slight issue was everything was a bit too salty, but to be honest I'm being picky.
There really are no bad points, but don't expect luxury and top restaurant quality food. This is a great 3 star hotel though.
Hair dryer in room (a decent one according to my wife who is a bit of a connoisseur!)
Note there is no kettle and they are not available
Niederau itself is a lovely resort suitable for beginners and intermediates. It was child friendly and we'd certainly recommend the wildschonau ski school
We hope to return soon
