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.
