    Starting out life as a simple guesthouse, the Garni Hotel Obermair has transformed into a popular, no frills hotel.

    Over the years, they've added an annexe, an indoor pool and a nice little wellness area. But through all the changes, the Obermair hasn't lost it's its traditional charm and typical Austrian wooden panelling throughout.

    The majority of our rooms are in the annexe - they're a little bit dated and this is reflected in the price. If you're planning on spending a bit more time in your room then you may want to choose one in the main building. The bedrooms in there with a classic Alpine style and comfortable furnishings.

    The heated indoor pool is a decent size - big enough for a few early morning laps, or a splash about. The pool is located in the main building, along with the wellness area with Finnish sauna, herbal sauna, steam bath and rain showers.

    Bed and breakfast is the standard at the Obermair - and the breakfast by all accounts is very tasty. You'll get a range of hot and cold dishes from the buffet, and, if you want, you can also upgrade to half board - dinner is taken over at the Hotel Kramerwirt. If you're looking to sample the local restaurant cuisine, you've got Mayrhofen as your dining oyster and there's loads of choice.

    Location wise you're just on the edge of town. The nearest bars and restaurants are just a couple of minutes away and the Penken gondola is only about a 12-minute walk. If you plan on getting out and about a little further into the Ziller Valley, the bus and train stations are both close by too.

    Safety advice

    Please be advised that safety standards with regards to balconies differ in Austria, and on occasion you may be allocated a room whereby the balcony is lower than we would expect in the UK and Ireland.

    For your own safety, please ensure that you take care when on the balcony and do not lean on or over the railings. If you have children below the age of 12 in your party, please ensure that they are supervised and not left unattended at any time.

Board basis

Bed and breakfast

Bed and breakfast includes breakfast.


With all the various national tourist boards applying widely varying criteria to hotel ratings, the whole question of international hotel grades has become confused. We have therefore applied our own 'rating', representing the general standards of that country in order that fairer comparisons can be made.

Please note: rating may differ from the official star rating of the local tourist board. Our classifications take into account not only the basic facilities, but also the location, leisure facilities, general character and atmosphere of the hotel, as well as customer feedback. Chalet ratings give comparisons with other chalets but do not provide like for like comparisons with the ratings of full service hotels.
