My boyfriend and I stayed here for a week, arriving on boxing day. For novice skiers, the location could not have been better as there are loads of beginner ski areas within easy walking distance. For intermediate and more experienced skiers, the mountain also had plenty to offer, and the 6km toboggan run was heaps of fun! The main gondola is literally 20 meters from your door (!) and neighbouring towns are a short skibus hop away. It's very do-able to plan various ski excursions on different days.
We were upgraded to a family room which included a bath (the perfect way to wind down the day and ease those aching never-before-used muscles). The hotel is owner-run, which makes a huge difference, and the staff really go out of their way for their guests and are a great part of what gives this up-and-coming hotel it's charm.
The accommodation is fairly basic, but comfortable and the views are superb. Each room seams to have it's own private balcony. Breakfasts were great. Drinks were very reasonably priced, and dinners were fairly simple, with a set three course menu (two choices for your main course). We missed their quiz night but our French maitre'd kept all the guests thoroughly entertained with his riddles at breakfast and dinner.
We would highly recommend the Sporthotel Niederau and would definitely return.More
