This is the second time we have stayed at this hotel and again had a fantastic experience, this time over the Christmas period. The room in the main hotel was great and the staff all very friendly and helpful. The food was amazing with ample choices. There wasn't too much snow initially, so in order to get to the higher...

This Hotel I can only describe as being excellent! We had two rooms one in the main hotel and one in the annexe. It is literally a 3 minute walk to the annexe and we stayed during the middle of January so it is no great hardship trust me! Of course it is nice to be in the main hotel... More

I thought being in the EU, the law regarding smoking in public places was common throughout Europe, but not in this hotel apparently. On the way to breakfast, dinner etc you have to walk through the bar lounge where they have a 'smoking area'. Walking through passive smoke does not exactly set you up to enjoy your meal and when...

The Sporthotel is lovely and I would highly recommend it. I've stayed there twice now and each time it's been wonderful. The only downside was that I booked with Thomson and they put us in the annex. The annex bears no resemblance to the Sporthotel. It is 300m away and has no facilities. The soaps and shampoos are a lesser... More

We have recently returned from our third visit to the excellent Sporthotel. Our welcome was friendly, efficient and check in took about 5 minutes. Our party had two different types of rooms. The smaller, brighter 'Tirol' room overlooked the main road but had a spectacular view of the Wilder Kaiser mountains. The larger 'Ellmau' room was, at times, very dark... More

This hotel is simply brilliant. Food is out of this world with great choices. At dinner there are 5 choices of main course together with a choice of soups and an excellent salad buffet. Dessert is usually a buffet too - if you can manage it! Breakfast is superb with a huge choice of hot and cold and a bewildering... More

An excellent hotel . Although a large hotel the staff were very friendly and efficient. A gluten free diet was well catered for and the food was excellent. Ellmau is a good area for easy walking and there is a free bus between Going, Ellmau,Scheffau and Soll although it was usually crowded. There is smoking allowed in parts of the... More

We stayed at The Sport as a base for a weeks walking. You can buy a lift pass for all the lifts in the valley which stay open in the summer and that gives free bus travel as well. The Sport is about 20mins walk from the Ellmau lift but the quality of the hotel makes that bearable. All the... More

Overall a very good experience, spoiled by some niggles. On arrival at the main hotel we checked in, were given keys and told to drive down the road opposite to the annexe, the first building on the right. We said we had no car ( came by plane and taxi) and were left to walk with our luggage. Could not... More
