Our stay at the Pension Hoffelner could not have been better! We loved the warmly decorated, comfortable and spotlessly clean chateau. The breakfasts were delicious and variety of food selection was great. The lounge area was very well stocked with games, books, a large DVD collection and billiards table as well as a computer for guest use. If travelling with children, they would have lots to entertain themselves for sure! We had a wonderful relaxing stay after spending a few busy days in Salzburg and touring through Germany.
The views from our room were stunning! Rob and Joanna were so knowledgable of the area and very willing to provide any information needed to help make our stay an amazing one. The area is perfect for any level of activity you wish to experience. The hiking and walking opportunities were endless! The Sommercard was a great added bonus that Joanna had set up and ready for us on our arrival. It enabled us to see lots of sights and take one lift per day free of charge. The town of Schladming is very close and we enjoyed exploring it's quaint streets and shops as well. Overall, a fabulous place that we would highly recommend any time of the year!
Thank you to our thoughtful hosts Rob and Joanna!

We went to Ramsau in August with our teenage daughters and had a fantastic time - made all the better by the hospitality of Rob and Joanna White. Oor apartment was spotless and more spacious than we expected and it was great to have the flexibility of cooking for yourself in the evenings while having breakfast provided. The views were stunning and we were very fortunate with the weather.
Rob and Joanna suggested walks for us to try - the area is perfect for all kinds of walking from forest rambles to high level hikes and more. Having the Summer Card included in the price made a big difference as we travelled only by public transport (free with the card) and saved money on cable car rides as well. Definitely a holiday to remember and we would certainly go back!

We stayed at Pension Hoffelner for 6 nights in July. We decided to stay here after reading all the positive Tripadvisor reviews and were not disappointed. Our room was lovely, spotlessly clean with a fantastic view from the wrap-around balcony. Breakfast was excellent, the freshly baked rolls delicious - and we were pleased to find that you could make your own filled rolls (sandwich bags provided) for just over 1 euro to make a packed lunch – great for walkers! We also made use of the free internet terminal in the lounge to check emails. This was great as we didn't bring a laptop.

Rob and Joanna are great hosts and made us feel at home straight away. They are both very knowledgeable about the local attractions and walks (the main reason for our visit) and had great suggestions for places to visit, some of which we would have otherwise missed.

As we visited during the summer, our room rate included the 'Summercard' which gives totally free access to buses, cable cars, guided walks, museums, swimming pools etc and discounts off other attractions/activities – we saved loads of euros using them. As an example, cardholders are entitled to a free return ride on the Dachstein cable car which is normally 32 euros per adult. These cards are not available to buy – you can only get them if you are staying at an affiliated hotel like Pension Hoffelner. A family using the Summercard would save a substantial amount of money.

Other things we did included 'Wild Wasser' which is an amazing waterfall walk (with vertigo-inducing bridge across the gorge), Cable car to Hochwurzen (and go-kart back down – great fun!), and a visit to the Eisriesenwelt Ice Cave (largest in Europe).

There are a number of good restaurants in Ramsau, which is a 15 minute walk away. There are also two supermarkets (Spar and Bila) close by. We also drove into Schladming a couple of evenings which is about 10 minutes by car. Schladming has many restaurants and cafes to choose from and is a nice place for an evening stroll.

We're not skiers, but when Rob told us how great the winter walking is in the area – there is a chance we will be back in the winter! All in all a fab time was had.

Just spent 4 nights in magical Ramsau at Pension Hoffelner. We booked for 3 nights and stayed an extra night because we just don't want to leave. The Pension is immaculate, spacious, clean and welcoming. Magnificent views and location. The self-cater apartments have all the mod-cons one could hope for, and the B&B basis rooms are excellent. Rob & Joanna are so friendly and helpful, we thank you both for making our stay just perfect. To the prior reviewers who moaned about the shoe thing I say "Get a life!". The review rating has 5 stars... I give this place 6 or 7 stars! Absolutely awesome

We stayed at the Chalet Hoffelner last week and had a fantastic time skiing in Schladming and surrounding areas. Rob and Joanna were very good at advising where to go and on what day (keeping us informed of the weather conditions) which pretty much was blue skies and sunshine all week. The Chalet is really beautiful with stunning views . We enjoyed tea on the terrace overlooking the mountains after a hard (well hard'ish) day skiing, g&ts at the well stocked bar before dinner, 3 course dinner finished off with schnapps (on the house), then enjoyed the company of the other guests in the large lounge and playing pool. The bedrooms are very well furnished with lots of hooks and cupboard space and lots of natural light. We have been skiing for many years and can't understand why we've never been to Schladming before! Great skiing for intermediates, lots of long wide runs, good restaurants on the mountain and very reasonable, will definitely go back. Also thanks to George who drove us to and from the slopes (about a 15 minute drive with stunning scenery).

We have just returned from a wonderful week at Pension Hoffelner. The accommodation is warm and charming and has a very homely ambiance. Our room was spacious and we were able to sit on the balcony and enjoy the views. We used the chalet as a base for walking and Rob and Joanna were able to give us information about the best areas to try. The breakfasts and evening meals were delicious as was the local wine and beer. We are so pleased we chose to stay there.

I have spent a week at Pension Hofelner in March 2012. The Hosts Joanna and Rob were very welcoming and the accommodation is fantastic. We stayed in a Superior room which had a 4 poster bed and fabulous views over Schladming. The accommodation is a cross between a hotel and large chalet. It has a large communal area for guests with a pool table (1 euro per game) and a large TV with games console to use. There is a large DVD collection which are free to watch at your leisure in your own room. The location of the accommodation is the only downside as its about a 20/30 min walk from Ramsau town and longer to Schladming. There are public buses that take you in to town but are not very frequent. This means that you have to rely heavily on the minibus that the hosts provide in the morning between 9 and 9.30 to get into Schladming and then again between 4 - 5.30pm to get back. Other than that the views are stunning over the valley from your own balcony and its very quiet and tranquil. Breakfast is a selection of cereals, ham, cheese, boiled eggs and breads. Afternoon tea is available at a small cost and a 3 course dinner is served at 7pm with tea/coffee/schnapps afterwards. Wine is included with dinner which stops once you have finished your meal. There is a sauna but this is an additional 4 euros.

Pension Hoffelner is a well presented hotel which is ideal for families, couples are groups who are looking for a relaxed environment for their stay without the need to be close to town for Apres ski.

Room Tip: Choose a superior room as they are worth the extra money
