“Nothing was too much trouble”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2014

We loved this hotel. Nothing betting at the end of a day skiing than the short walk to the hotel from the piste, drop your skis in to the well organised ski room (complete with boot dryers) and head to the spa, pool and stream room or straight to the bar for the wonderful afternoon tea baked freshly each day. The breakfast and dinners were amazing. The staff were great and nothing was too much trouble. Even organised for my skis to be tuned in town and they were picked up that afternoon and dropped off ready for use the next morning. The rooms spacious and comfortable. Even the other guests were delightful. We were also provided with a breakfast bag of goodies on our very early departure morning. Now, that's service! Happy to head back here to stay again.

The hotel was highly recommended to us by friends who have been visiting it for over 10 years. Their recommendation didn't disappoint.
We (3 single friends) stayed at this delightful hotel for a week in early March. What a wonderful base it was. The food, the staff, the facilities and the friendliness of other guests were excellent. On a daily basis we enjoyed a full and yummy breakfast, helpful advice to all and any question, a delightful selection of cakes after skiing for afternoon tea, the wellness centre (pool, spas, saunas, steam rooms, etc ), a consistently excellent 5 course dinner, a new herbal tea and cocktail to try at the bar and a very comfortable bed to retire to. The ski room was excellent and the couple of times we went into town to shop,etc, we really appreciated being dropped off and picked up.
We also joined in with the ski guiding day which was really fun and provided the opportunity to meet more of the guests. All of us would return in a heartbeat.

We stayed for a week with a group of friends and the one thing I can say is that they know how to make their guest feel extremely welcomed. When booking a hotel with diner included, my first guest is that the food is expected to be average. I was wrong, I was blown away by the quality of the ingredients and the attention to detail when preparing the meals. If your group decide to choose the option of having diner in the special dining room for a small extra, you must try the pumpkin raviolis!! The owner Mikael (not sure if the spelling is right) is an amazing somelier and will always suggest the perfect wine to join any meal at any budget. They have wines that you will never find anywhere else (I even proposed to buy some to bring back home and refused to make sure his guests can enjoy it at his hotel) They also provide an all-day shuttle in the village whenever you need to go (before 7pm) The owner can also organise ski tours for guests where he will bring you to the best spots to ski and the best huts to eat during the day. The rooms are also very clean and well maintained. Very friendly staff. All around, a very memorable stay and will come back next year!

Room Tip: Some rooms have baths/shower and some only have a shower. Ask ahead as the hotel gets fully booked q...

I organized a trip for a group of friends that I have skied with every year for the past five years. We usually stayed in North America, but we decided to try something new. The hotel was terrific given that we did not know the area as we had not skied there before. We went on numerous guided tours with the very hands on owner, Michael, and we had great meals (breakfast and dinner were included) at the hotel so we didn't have to waste time or money looking for a good meal after a long day of skiing. We also enjoyed the spa and indoor pool facilities that were included as well. The rooms were clean, comfortable and quiet...exactly what we needed after a long ski day. Overall we all had a great time and are already planning to head back next year.

Room Tip: There are many different room varieties in this hotel, so best to book early and speak with the fron...

This hotel provided us with a very comfortable and pleasant base for a week's skiing.

The hotel is on a hillside, about 10 - 15 mins walk above the town; not ideal if you want to hit the fleshpots of Corvara every night, but then again, there aren't any, so it doesn't matter. It is ideal if you are old and knackered and have no wish to paint the town red. It's less than 5 mins from the hotel ski room to the slopes, to the bottom of a chair or a piste down to the main town lifts.

The hotel is split across two sides of a quiet road, with an internal subterranean connection. We stayed on the mountain side, which is newr than the main part of the hotel. Our view was of a snow covered slope, not exciting but not unpleasant, and anyway there is little opportunity for taking in the view from one's hotel room on a ski hol. The room was a very decent size, comfortable and well furnished (big wardrobe, plenty of coathooks, big balcony) without being anything special. The bathroom was huge, almost as big as the room, with underfloor heating, two washbasins and a jacuzzi bath/shower. I understand that the rooms in the main part of the hotel are gnerally older and smaller, but at least some will have very decent views, as the hotel is on a hillside.

The hotel has a pool and various spa facilities, which we did not sample. Judging by the rest of the hotel, I expect them to be of a good standard. The ski room was large, with ski racks and boot warmers, It is accessible directly from the new part of the hotel and opens onto the road, very handy for the slopes. It is secure.

There is a large bar/cafe area on the ground floor, where I believe that some food is served. Not especially atmospheric, although there is cosy bit in front of the fire. Free cakes, very good, at teatime. A very cosy looking smoking room is provided, almost worth taking up smoking for. There is another subterranean bar of the 'stube' type.

There are two restaurants (plus any food that is served in the bars). One, subterranean, is pretty smart with a delicious, if rather fussy, sounding menu. I can't report on it as I didn't try it. We were on half board and ate in the larger ground floor restaurant; we were lucky enough to be in a little sub dining room, with three other tables, which was pleasanter than the main dining room, not that there was anything wrong with that.

The food was very good, which was why we didn't bother to pay the supplement for the posher restaurant. Breakfast was pretty comprehensive; cereal, plenty of fruit, yogs, cold meat and cheeses, lots of preserves and breads, eggs and so on cooked to order (the scrambled eggs were a bit weird, but never mind), decent coffee. Dinner was usually excellent. My heart sinks when I see a table d'hote menu with 5 courses (plus cheese and coffee), but I need not have worried. There was a choice (made at brekkie, which is not ideal) of two or three dishes for the principal courses. The first course was usually (always?) a cold buffet, usually delish grilled veg, salads, that sort of thing, once a very good seafood buffet (difficult for me not to stuff myself with that leaving insufficient room for the rest of the meal). Thankfully, the buffet element stopped there; OK for a cold starter, but not my idea of a civilised way to eat dinner). Pasta or soup, a small, elaborate dish, a main course, pud and cheese and coffee. Not every single course throughout the week entirely hit the spot, but almost all did, and most were excellent. A huge wine list, starting at around €20 and going up to the sky. We stuck to local reds at around €20 - €30, and they were uniformly excellent, some outstanding. Tap water was provided perfectly cheerfully. The sevice was good and friendly, even of the head waiter looked liked a young Max Bygraves (if Max Bygraves was ever young).

During the ski season, the hotel offers guided skiing on several days each week (useful in the very large Dolomiti region) and other activities. We were with a ski company (Colletts, highly recommended for the over 40s) that offered similar services, so I don't know how good the hotel's services were. There was a Tyrolean evening in the stube before dinner one day, with loads of delish snacks and drinks, and of course hideous accordion music. Not everyone's cup of tea, but it wasn't compulsory (and it wasn't a substitute for an excellent dinner, although it could have been).

The staff were all very pleasant and helpful, and one was made to feel very welcome. Although it's a biggish hotel, it seems to be family run, with the family taking an active part. I would recommed it wholeheartedly if you wish to stay in Corvara, which is as good a ski base as anywhere in the Sella Ronda region of the Dolomites (which are the most beatiful ski area I've skied in, if not the most demanding).

Room Tip: In the winter, the larger new rooms in the annex are probably best. In the summer, a room with a vi...

In 26 years of skiing in Europe, Canada & the US Sporthotel Panorma has to be the best hotel we have ever had the pleasure of discovering. From the day of our arrival until departure we could not ask for a better quality of service, professionalism, friendliness and helpfulness to make our stay such a memorable one. This is a family run hotel which is clearly shown in the care taken to ensure the needs of all guests are met. We would highly recommend this superb establishment to lovers of good food, comfort and the excellent spa facilities after a hard days skiing.

Room Tip: Beautiful views from Panorama Rooms
