“A pleasant week in lovely village”
Reviewed 24 June 2010

Stayed at the Schneeberger during June 2010 just when the weather was glorious. We paid a small supplement for one of the rooms in the newer part of the hotel - which is seemlessly linked to the old original part. The room was spacious and very nice - a comfy austrian twin bed - a good size bathroom with powerful shower, TV and balcony. Would have been nice to have tea and coffee faclities - but thought the supplement paid was worth it. We were in a party of three adults and our friend who came along stayed in a single room (one of the reasons the hotel was chosen as it catered for singles). However, his room was in the original part of the hotel and was very very tiny with no balcony - and considering a single supplement was paid it didn't warrant the cost. He also said the ensuite shower wasn't very effective either - so single travellers beware!
Our room was adjacent to the 'famous' funpub/disco element of the hotel and although no noise could be heard from the venue itself it seems it is used by the staff and workers from the other hotels and bars in the resort as their recreational venue. As such it is open until at least 5am (I'm told by another bar owner that 7am is not uncommon) so occassionally you can hear people as they leave. But all said it wasn't as bad as it might sound - it is only open from Thursday through the weekend - but think its worth mentioning.
Overall the half board provision was okay. The evening meal - normally a choice from 4 options, together with a salad, a soup and desert was mostly fine - and as I'm afraid I'm no fan of austrian cuisine it was as good as is often found elsewhere. However we did find the breakfast a little limited both in terms of choice and also the amount of food and drinks provided. We felt breakfast was catered not so much in a 'just in time' mode more as 'just about enough' - with cereal or fruit or yoghurt or milk or teabags often running short. The water from 'the machine' was also never hot enough for a decent cuppa but thats often the case in europe.
The family that run the hotel are all helpful and seem happy to serve and look after you and everywhere was clean and tidy. The austrians still haven't got to grips with the no smoking aspect of public buildings but the Brits were all grouped together in the dining areas and no one smoked - but the adjacent bar area used by 'the locals' allowed smoking.
Niederau is a pretty little village and the hotel sits in a reasonably good location easy to get to the rest that the village offers. However, if your a serious(ish) walker you might find there is only a limited amount to excite - in our one week stay we did about everything that could be done from Niderau including from the top of the cable car plus a walk starting fom Oberau which is close by (3km).
Overall, the holiday was very enjoyable the individual bars and those in the hotels were all pleasant and the staff everywhere friendly and helpful. However, having been once it would be hard to return to the resort as the walking (our main reason) was quite limited (but you'll cope for one week).

Hotel is ideally situated for ski schools and slopes with beautiful views from the rooms. Hotel is small and friendly and staff (particularly Dirk) were more than helpful and accommodating to our needs. The food was very good with a variety of choice and lots of salad!!! You could come and go as you please and the staff were very relaxed and patient with our children and other peoples which made us relaxed also!!! We had no problems with the attached disco area. The only thing we would have liked is a bath in the room to soak away the skiing pains!!

We booked this hotel as a late availability with Crystal. As such we had our reservations. At the price we paid we weren't expecting it to be anything special and we were concerned at some of the reviews we had seen. We were more than pleasantly surprised. As other reviewers have commented, despite our late arrival we were told to make ourselves comfortable and come down for dinner.
The rooms were spacious and clean. This was not the Ritz but we had no complaints. The view of the mountains from our balcony was superb. The bedding clean and comfortable. A small bathroom with a powerful shower completed our accomodation. If we were going to be picky, on a couple of occassions the hot water took quite a while to come through but did do eventually. Our children were accomodated in a room across the corridor which was equally nice. As we were placed on the top floor at the end of a corridor we felt secure enough to allow the children to stay on their own with both rooms left unlocked overnight. The hotel and indeed the whole resort struck us as very safe.
Having settled in we went down to dinner. This was delicious and a sign of things to come. Each day we enjoyed the delights of the Schneeberger kitchen for both breakfast and dinner. We had gone with the intention of perhaps eating out for dinner but it just never happened. Every morning we were given a menu outlining the evenings offerings. This consisted of a salad bar with a variety of dishes, soup, a starter course and a choice of 3 main meals, and finally a dessert. The little people were also given a childrens meal option but were free to choose from the adult menu should they wish. I can honestly say that each and every meal we ate was lovely and just what was needed after a busy day on the slopes.
As for the location of the hotel, it was great. Just up the driveway across the "main" road and in no time at all your at the nursery slopes. Very handy indeed with two little children. Conditions when we were there meant that it was possible to ski back to the hotel (save for the road). And of course once there it was just a few short steps to the ski room, with its heated boot warmers. Just fantastic!
As for Niederau what can I say. This is prodominently a family resort and those little people are very well catered for. Having been to a number of resorts we have definitley found the one for us and will no doubt return for many years to come. We found it to be great value for money and particularly enjoyed our lunches and apres ski in Bobo's and The Alpenland Bar. The skiing was most enjoyable and whilst this certainly isn't the largest ski area there was plenty to keep us busy for the week. The children went to ski school at 1st skischule Wildshonau ie the Reds, which was truly fantastic. We cannot speak highly enough of the skill and care shown to them during the course of the week. We are now the proud parents of a 4 and 5 year old who after a week are more than capable of tackling the most difficult of terrains. But it was more than just that, it was how much fun they had in ski school, how they were taken to the toilet (pretty important and if past experience is anything to go by something often forgotten by other outfits) , how they were given encouragement and of course the never ending supply of haribo their tutors seemed to have upon them. And all that for an exceptionally good price.
All in all we would highly recommend both this hotel and this wonderful resort. Just dont tell everyone as we are trying to keep it a secret.

We were a little dubious as to how the hotel was going to be as it was such a bargain! We arrived quite late - after dinner service but were told to settle in to our room and come down for supper which was a great welcome! Our room had a balcony with fantastic views of the slopes and we were a stones throw from everything that we needed - ski hire shop, gondala, the bars! The bed was seriously comfy and cosy and the only negative comment was that the telly was advertised as cable but had no English channels. The showers were boiling hot and powerful and the rooms were serviced and fresh towels bought every day if required.
We stayed half board which was fine. Breakfast was meat, cheese, cereal, yoghurt buffet and boiled eggs. Dinner was 5 courses and a selection of different options. I wouldnt say it was amazing but it was warming and filled a hole - meat kebabs,casserole etc. I am a coeliac and cant eat wheat or gluten and every waiter knew what contained it and what alternative they would provide and checked I would like it. The wine was nice and there was quite a selection. The other guests were a selection of Austrian, German and English and were all really friendly. It is very family friendly however, we are a couple aged 25 and it was fine! Overall, I would say - if you are looking for an affordable, friendly, cosy, well positioned, easily accesible hotel, I would definitely suggest Schneeberger

Having read some negative reviews about this hotel we were a little anxious prior to arriving. Our flight had been delayed and we arrived well after evening service yet a meal was provided for us at the hotel, which was much appreciated and lovely. The room was clean and spacious and was serviced daily (unless you requested otherwise) we had a balcony with a beautiful view. The meals were all good, breakfast was self service with plenty of choice even for a hardened fussy eater, evening meals came with 3 set starters, then a choice of main course and a dessert. I don't understand peoples whinges about the quality of the food, it was excellent and my teenage son managed to eat everyday without complaint. The staff do smoke behind and around the bar, but that is the only place they smoke and they dont smoke whilst serving you. The staff were polite and helpful especially Dirk so thanks Dirk. This hotel is ideal for families with either young children teenagers, we were not disturbed at all by the late night bar at the side of the hotel. We didn't take advantage of the Sauna etc but did have a look around and wish we had used them, its all about timing and we were having too much fun out on the slopes and drinking mulled wine to get back in time to use them. This was my first visit to Austria, and I would most definately return not just to Niederau but to the Hotel Schneeberger.
