Its a low cost hotel, and you get what you pay for.
If your skiing, then it is easy to get on the slopes, just walk up the driveway, cross the road, take the button lift up the nursery/school slope and turn right at the top (as opposed to left onto the slope), ski down the pathway and join the bottom of the red to the main lifts (bit like pulling out onto the motorway though, but ok). If you were to walk to the main lifts from the hotel then it would be a nightmare, but everyone seems to use the route i mention above. Dont know how far it is, but it didn't feel more than 200m from hotel door to button lift.
Room was clean enough
Had to laugh at the review of the kids/games room being like a Romanian orphanage, yeah agree its not great.
Dont remember the food being as bad as some are saying, wasn't great, but bareable.
Our day was get up, have breakfast, get kit and get out on the slopes, come back, eat and go to the room. We had young kids with us so didn't spend time in the bar.
Its one of the lowest cost places to stay in Niederau, so you shouldn't expect a spa resort.
If you dont like it i dont know what to suggest, my understanding is that the owner pretty much owns everywhere in Niederau.
As a low cost base when skiing all day its ok.
NOTE: WE STAYED HERE IN JAN 11, BUT IT WOULDN'T LET ME GO BACK THAT FAR. THE HOTEL MAY WELL OF CHANGED SINCE THEN.
