Pretty little town, lots of friendly Dutch and English people. We stayed at the Alpenhof, run by Crystal, the hotel was not very Austrian, but could not fault the staff, they were always very friendly and helpful. Not the best resort for "learn to ski", the nursery slopes at the bottom are fine, but change a bit too dramatically once at the top! (As some of the beginners in our family found). Those of us that have skied before thoroughly enjoyed skiing over to other resorts with the local ski school.
