Awesome boutique-style hotel in the quaintest part of Western Austria. Spacious & comfortable rooms, great restaurant and ample parking. Stayed there for 3 nights with friends and fam and had a wicked good time.
The skinny: the hotel is situated a little outside the town of Au (which is really just a small village itself) so don't expect a lot of shopping right at your doorstep. Groceries and ski rentals are within walking distance, though. Also, there is a ski lift right above the hotel but it's suited for kids and beginners only - however, there are some major resorts within 10 and 30 minute drives (take the local bus to avoid parking headaches if you head to the slopes a little later in the day). Well-maintained easy and challenging cross country trails go within footsteps past the hotel and outside ski season there is great cycling and hiking for all levels (didn't get to do any of that in March, though...). The local bike path system extends for miles in either direction and is well maintained and suited for running and rollerblading, too - however, during winter season those paths are used for x-country skiing.
The restaurant at the hotel is excellent and there are a number of other great restaurants in Au and the neighboring town of Schoppernau and Mellau.
Tip: when driving stick to the speed limit. The local police seems to enforce the limits quite rigorously and apparently uses photo radar and speed guns daily.
