Kudos to our bedbookers – They’ve secured some great new accommodations for the bed bank. Like Ryan Giggs at a Big Brother afterparty, Snowbombers are swarming incessantly over our available beds and reserving their pillows-in-preferential-places.
We start things off with our latest addition to the mix from captain Huber, who rumour has it once skiied down the HariKiri on one leg, after consuming his own home-brewed Jaeger Tea. Fortunately he was Austrian, and was unaffected by the signs of blindness shown in other nationalities who consumed the beverage.
Huber’s Boutiquehotel – 12 double/twin rooms released – From £459 p/p
Huber´s Boutiquehotel is a small green oasis, family run and in the centre of Mayrhofen. Newly rebuilt, clean lines set the tone – it is what it is – discreet luxury.
The hotel offers comfortable and spacious en-suite rooms, all with their own balcony from where you can enjoy wonderful views of the mountains. Other facilities include SAT-TV, safe, minibar, phone and hair dryer.
Huber’s Boutiquehotel also features a brand new Wellness Centre, featuring Finnish sauna, Relaxation room, Steam bath, an Ice fountain and an outdoor area, with massages available on request. The Penken cable car and the skibus stop are located in the immediate vicinity.
Landhaus Carla – 5 double/twins, 5 triples – From £379 p/p
Set back from main street of Mayrhofen, with great views of the valley and mountain, the Landhaus Carla is one for those who want their Hotel to be an escape from the madness. The Hotel is a very high standard 3* with spa facilities, a very good restaurant and a great sun terrace for days off. Walking distance from the lifts and venues – or next to the ski bus stop if last night was a bit hardcore… Breakfast is included… and we’ve heard its good!
Rooms are all en suite have TVs, hairdryers and most have balconies. Carla is a real star and the perfect host – with many Snowbombers who book returning year on year (her son Tommy “Beckna” Erberharter is the one of the most famous snowboarders in Austria too!)
The Hotel sits just next to the train station so if you’re making your way by train then you don’t need to go far with your bags. The spa includes a finnish sauna, steam bath, Jacuzzi, and tanning beds.
Landhaus Neuhaus – 5 double/twins, 3 singles – From £419 p/p
This fine traditional hotel located just off the bottom of the main street, of Mayrhofen close to the main venue ‘The Racket Club’, offers very high standards and excellent food. The Penken and Ahorn lifts are no-more than 7 – 10 minutes-walk.
Rooms in the Landhaus Neuhaus have a bath and most have a balcony. All rooms have cable TV, radio, safe, hairdryer and a phone. Spot on!
Rauchenwald – 7 double/twins, 2 triples – From £379 p/p
The Rauchenwalderhof is situated in one of the most beautiful spots in Mayrhofen, surrounded by meadows and by the stunning Zillertal mountains. The house is situated in quiet yet central location and is the ideal starting point for many leisure time activities. 250m to the main street and the gondola. Can’t get much nearer to the action than that! Rooms are all equipped with balconies, TV, bath/shower and toilet.
Alpina – 12 double/twin, 1 single, 6 triple, 3 quads – From £319
A typically Tyrolean, small family run guesthouse located in the farming community of Swendau which offers a warm welcome and true Tyrolean hospitality. Andrea is always smiling and Christian knows his way around schnnapps like Jenson Button knows Monaco.
The hotel is a short distance to the village of Ramsau where you can get the train to Mayrhofen, but the bus stop is only a few minutes-walk away. The free day and night shuttle will take you into town in under 10 minutes (just show your Snowbombing wristband!)
Rooms are very clean and delightful complete with views of the valley and balconies on which you can watch the sun go down. Hippach is a 10 min walk away; Mayrhofen is a pleasant 40 min stroll along the riverside promenade.
