“A Great Find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2008

Just returned from a fantastic week at the Sport Hotel Stock. It was the last week of the season but the snow was superb considering the resort is fairly low (840M).

It is very hard to fault this hotel if you are looking for a luxury ski trip slightly off the beaten track. We flew into Munich which is 2 hours by car but Innsbruck is an hour away. The closest resort known to the UK is Mayrhofen which is only 3km away, but Finkenberg is a more traditional, quieter village. We were the only British in the hotel.

The hotel has a real family atmosphere, with the Stock family present in the evenings, greeting guests and generally ensuring everyone is being attended to. The quality of the food was superb throughout.

Breakfast is a buffet with breads, yoghurt, lots of fruit, meats and cheeses. You can also order omelettes, eggs or pancakes. Breakfast starts at 8pm and finishes at a very civilised 10.30. The breakfast area also has a couple of juicers with loads of fruit.

We did not take advantage of the lunch buffet (1pm to 5pm) as we were on the slopes but it looked good with soups and few hot dishes plus pastries, cakes etc. Incidentally, mineral water and soft drinks are included in the room rate, as are all meals.

Dinner was more formal, with 5 courses. This is usually a mixture between a buffet and served food. The salad bar was great and the quality of the food in general superb.

We stayed in one of the larger suites and it was without doubt the largest hotel room we have stayed in. Our balcony was the size of a typical room. The kids had their own bunk beds.

I imagine the reason most people visit the hotel is for the Spa, which is huge with a wide variety of treatments. We did not have any treatments but used the family spa, and the indoor and outdoor pools which was a very pleasant temperature. Children are not allowed in the main Spa area as this is a nude area but if you are too British to join in with the Austrians and Germans, the pool area has a steam room, sauna and the family sauna has a Jacuzzi. Kids are well looked after with a Crèche, games room, billiard table and video games room.

Little touches make the difference, like the mini-bus which takes you to and from the lift which is 300M away. Despite the facilities the best aspect of the hotel was the staff, they could not do more for you. This hotel really is as good as it looks on the Web site.

This spa and hotel in Austria was a complete gamble for me since there were no previous reviews written on tripadvisor. Now that I have visited and spent four days there, I can say that it was a fantastic stay!

I traveled from New York City to Innsbruck, Austria and then took an hour and a half train to Mayrhofen. From there, the hotel van picked me up and took me into the mountains to the hotel. I was immediately greeted with a warm lunch/buffet and a glass of champagne. My room was small, but cozy and had an amazing view of the mountains. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom had heated floors.

Since I was really looking to relax on this trip, I booked several spa treatments. I would highly recommend the Ayurvedic Hot Oil Massage and the Basic Facial. After each treatment, I would spend time in The Quiet Room which had heated water beds, lounge chairs, and a fire place. The spa also offers many different saunas, steam rooms, etc. There is also an outdoor whirlpool as well as two tanning beds (€6 for 8 minutes). Americans should remember that the Europeans are sometimes more comfortable without their clothing in the spa.

The hotel also has an amazing indoor/outdoor heated pool. There is nothing like swimming outdoors in the Alps in Austria in the snow!

The food at the hotel is the most amazing food I have ever had on a vacation! The meals are all included in the price of your room. The choices are endless and the lunch buffet is served from 1-5. Everyday, I made sure to try something new. My favorite was to have a mug of hot chocolate and read by one of the fireplaces. The food alone made the trip worthwhile!

The surrounding scenery is almost too much for the eyes to take in. You aren't too far from Hinder Tux, a popular ski resort built on a glacier. I do not ski, but I took the cable car up to the top (as do many people) just to see the expanse of the Austrian Alps.

The hotel visitors are mostly families and couples. The hotel offers an amazing program for children so that their parents can relax all day in the spa. I was there by myself and there maybe one or two other people there alone.

The staff was friendly and gracious. English is not their first language, but I had no problem understanding directions to the glacier. I speak no German but found no problems on my entire trip to Austria.

I cannot recommend this hotel enough! I had an amazing time and will definitely return.

This is a difficult one, since there is nothing fundamentally wrong with the Stock hotel; in fact it is in a very nice setting, with lovely scenic mountain walks. It also offers nice large spotlessly clean bedrooms, (though hard uncomfortable beds), as well as a warm, almost overly friendly service.

However, if you are thinking of staying there, allow me a word of warning, which I wish I got before going.
This place is, at best, one big permanent party. Some people may enjoy that, and indeed most guests seemed very happy there; but my wife and I were hoping for a quiet retreat in the mountains for a week in summer, during a tour of Germany and Austria by car. Their brochure and website looked inviting enough. But quiet was simply not an option here. We just had to leave the hotel after two days. Incidentally, they refused to give me any refund, charging me for the whole stay.

To start, there was loud, irritating, cheesy music all over the place. ie; in the car park, the foyer, the lifts, the corridors, and yes, the bedrooms! though only there could it be thankfully switched off.
They like their canned music so much, they even let it play when they have some live music going on, creating one big cacophony.

Also, it should be known that this hotel was truly made for big families, and the children had taken over the whole place, giving the public areas an ambience of a school play ground, as they were monopolising the foyers, restaurants, gym, swimming pool, etc...
This, as far as I am concerned is simply not a place for couples.

No intimacy at all is to be found in the vast resaturant; there was little table service, and one had to plough through the chaotic self-service area, at breakfast, lunch, and dinner; a three times daily struggle. Room service did not exist, so you just had to play along. On top of this, It seemed every evening meal had a special theme to it, with the Oriental night, or the smart so called dressy night,etc... how immature is that?

And of course, all the activities on offer were only done in big groups, package style. If you didn't join in the fun, you would feel like some dejected outsider.

So, perhaps, the irritatingly omnipresent Stock Family should call their hotel a holiday camp; therefore giving a more accurate discription, thus informing their potential new customers, what they really are letting themselves in for.

We took our two children (7 and 5) as well as my mother to this fantastic hotel just above Mayrhofen. What can I say ? The hosts were omnipresent, helpful and charming. The food abundant and of the highest quality, all facilities superbly appointed and faultlessly clean. We were lucky with the weather, which of course helps, but even on a rainy day, you are in for a special experience. Every day there is a different programme on offer for the youngest kids, older kids and adults alike. My children couldn't get enough, and keep asking to go back (so does my mother). I think the attention to detail and the very personal service are unique, and I have stayed in a good many top quality hotels over the years. The scenery is breathtaking, and it is easily reached from Innsbruck.
