Full review

I stayed at Thomson's Club Hotel Vicky in Niederau from 3rd till 10th March 2007. This was my second visit to the Wildschonau Valley as I had learnt to ski in Oberau several years earlier. The staff at the Vicky were welcoming & helpful. The rooms were clean & fairly comfortable but basic. Evening meals were superb with a healthy & appetising vegetarian option daily. Breakfast was not nearly as good. Waiting times for a cooked breakfast were long, even when ordered as soon as the kitchen opened. Coffee was weak & got worse as the week passed by, but you can get a good cup of coffee at The Hotel Austria. The Vicky offers good value for money & is an excellent base for people holidaying with children. The hotel is fairly centrally located in the compact village of Niederau. It takes about 5 minutes to walk accross the field to the gondola & just under 10 minutes to walk round by the road in normal shoes. The Margarite Hire Shop, at the bottom of the gondola, offers ski & boot storage for 10 Euros per person per week, but their boot racks are not heated. Red ski school offers a very good standard of teaching & a fun, end of week slalom race. Ladies, be warned; Toni (an instructor) is very, very friendly! Snow conditions up the mountain in Niederau & Auffach were satisfactory but snow was absent in the villages. Red 19 was open for most of the week, making it possible to ski back to the bottom gondola station in Niederau. Buses to Oberau & Auffach are frequent but can be packed in the mornings & after ski school ends in the afternoons. There were long queues at the bottom gondola station in Auffach most mornings. I have had two great holidays in the reasonably priced Wildschhonau Valley & would recommend it to those learning to ski & to early intermediates. I would have been a bit bored, this year, if red 19 had not been open. Next year, I am going to Soll because as a 6th year skiier, I would like a wider variety of red runs.
