Great place as a base for first-time skiers, being the closest site to both lifts and easily walking distance (even in ski boots). Beware that Kirchdorf will probably not hold the interest of experienced winter sports travellers, as there is only a nursery slope with a conveyer, rope-tow and t-bar, and one chair lift. As an indication my wife and I were first time boarders and advanced past the nursery slope on day 2, and never got on to the chair lift due to poor snow.
There is a free ski-bus that runs reasonably regularly from Kirchdorf around the area, including St Johann, Steinplatte and Fieberbunn, but you will need an area lift pass. The bus stop is 3 minutes walk from the hotel, by the ski school.
Hotel staff were very friendly, poke good English (much as we tried with German), food buffets were always good quality, rustic fare, great for carbs. Lunches available include good pizzas at a reasonable price.
Comments around the bar area are fair- the reception bar itself is small and does permit smoking (no public smoking ban), although we didn't have any issues with smoke in our rooms and we were on the first floor.
