Just back from a week in The Post in Westendorf. The location is superb - a 2 minute walk from the nursery slopes and the chairlift. The gondola is less than a 10 minute walk away which takes you to middle station and also on up to the top of the mountain. The rooms are very, very basic but clean and pretty spacious. The winter wonderland view from the balcony was lovely. The heating was on too high so we turned it off in an effort to get some rest. The beds aren't the most comfortable but still managed to get some sleep. The bar was pretty buzzy most nights with drinks being cheaper there than in some of the others we went to. (Try their hot chocolate & rum but not when it's busy as they wont be too happy). We were on a half board basis. Breakfast was traditional Austrian fare and set us up well for the day on the slopes but the included dinner wasn't really up to much. We stuck that out for 2 nights and then changed to the public "a la carte" restaurant at the front and the food there was very good. We couldnt believe this was being produced by the same hotel! Other restaurants to check out are Marcels (the venison is fantastic) and the Alpenhof (if you can get a table). Worth noting that in all cases, we needed to book a table in advance and that was end of season. If I was going back for skiing, then I wouldn't go past the Post as it really is ideally located. However, it doesnt really have facilities for the non-skier.
