“Wonderful stay in Corvara, I wish it was longer”
Reviewed 3 August 2014

We loved Sporthotel Panorama for their lovely staff, gorgeous location and Chocky the Labrador (and the food and jacuzzi!).
The staff made us feel so welcome and never raised an eyebrow to our repeated visits to the buffets or cheese board. The hotel's reputation for good food is very well deserved. I originally booked B&B through Colletts but they recommended half board and we were so glad for the advice.
The hotel is a 15 min hard walk up a steep hill from the village, which is a killer after a 5 hour hike, but worth the effort.
We were usually greeted at the end of the day by the gorgeous Chocky wanting a tummy rub and we then limped to the fabulous wellness centre with jacuzzi, saunas, steam room, swimming pool. Massages can be booked at a reasonable cost.
For those visiting with Colletts, Chalet Angelo is next door so office hour is an easy commute.
Reception put visitors who want to play tennis in touch with each other and if the weather is bad, it is possible to reserve a covered court in the village which has a fabulous mountain view from every window.
Walking around Corvara is extensive, varied, staggeringly beautiful and very well way marked.
Aside from rather a lot of rain, our stay could not have been better and I would return in a heart beat

Room Tip: Wifi is only available in the main communal areas. We were in room 331 in the main building. Ther...

Just returned from a week climbing and walking around corvara and stayed at this fabulous hotel. The food and service were outstanding, location perfect and room really clean with an excellent shower. Cant praise this hotel highly enough - a true gem. Run and owned by a really lovely family. Have already decided to return next year.

Stayed for a week on a half board basis while we explored the via ferratas and climbing in the area. We had a room with fantastic views of the Sasshonger - I'd recommend you ask for a room with a view when you book. The accommodation is comfortable although there are no tea/coffee making facilities or iron/board in the rooms; these omissions are fairly typical for Italy. The hotel provides a laundry service and there is of course a bar downstairs.

The main reasons for staying here from my perspective were the delights originating from the kitchen. The food is excellent and there was always enough choice on the dinner menu which changed daily. Remarkably there was always a fish main course option on the menu which my wife chose most evenings. The only main course that was lacking in flavour was the lamb chops; I've probably been spoilt by our own Bryn y Cwm Farm lamb. However, everything else was absolutely stunning and for healthy appetites, portion sizes were very reasonable. The local cheese board available at the end of the meal was also a daily treat!

In addition guests were invited regularly to a pre-dinner appetitive and a delicious assortment of local delicacies was usually a feature. The wine list is extensive but we focused entirely on local Aldo Adige wines - these were reasonably priced and good quality. The dining room staff were attentive and very helpful.

Highly recommended A++++++++

Hopefully we'll be back again next year!

We stayed in this marvelous hotel for 3 nights after a hectic week in Milano. We have been coming to Europe nearly every year or every other years over the last 30 years (5th time in Italy). Of course this place does not match some of the very expensive hotels we have stayed in Europe, but we had by far the most comfortable, pleasant and enjoyable experience by staying at this hotel. As many reviewers stated, staffs are genuinely nice and service is outstanding. The entire hotel has very calm and friendly atmosphere where you could really, really relax. I did not know anything about this hotel and blindly booked through Booking.com with the help of Tripadvisor. Actually the name sounded too 'American' and I almost avoided this hotel if I did not see such high rating by Tripadvisor's reviewers. Don't be misled by the name. This is a family operated local hotel where most visitors during the summer are from nearby European countries (Austria, France, Germany of course Italy) and can tell they are 'regulars'. The view from the room and from a large deck was breathtaking (see the picture). Breakfast and dinner were outstanding (dinner menu changes everyday). The dinner costs only 25 Euros/person, but the quality is first class and worth well over 50 Euros/person. In fact I spent far more just for a lousy lunch in Milano. Also one day they had a special pasta night in addition to your regular dinner where you can ask a pair of cooks how you want your pasta to be cooked (type of pastas and ingredients) and I had squid, octopus, shrimp, and fish pasta). Local deer stake for dinner was very tasty. One more thing, we originally booked the last room available on Booking.com. The room was small and facing the next building. So I just asked whether any room is available facing valley and beautiful mountains with deck. The receptionist said that there is one and with additional 10 Euro/day we could move there. We took the offer, but to our surprise, the manager (a family member sitting in the back) said we could move there without paying additional fee. The advise I have for tripadvisor readers is that book your room via hotel site not through internet travel sites if you want a fantastic mountain and valley views and sun deck (yes with internet travel sites, rooms may cost you a bit less but you many not get what you want). If you like hiking or biking, trails (just simple walking to advanced hiking and biking) are everywhere starting from the hotel. Finally, hotel room is comfortable and very clean. So if you are looking for a hotel for relaxation and summer activities in this fantastic alpine mountain region near the border between Austria and Italy, this is definitely for you.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the valley and mountains with a deck.

I spent 3 nights, 4 days for a cycling sportive in July. Outstanding service, spotless, great facilities, perfect setting, wonderful breakfast, scrumptious dinners...not much more to add other than to say that it is a very special place!

We loved this hotel even before we arrived. Unable to fit our snow chains just a few minutes from the hotel we called them and immediately Charlie arrived and within seconds the chains were fitted and we were able to complete our 9 hour drive. This was typical of the service and nothing was ever too much trouble for the Costamoling family and their team.

Without exception everybody was warm and friendly. Rosie who looked after us in the restaurant and knew our every whim before us and Michael who was always on hand from choosing one of the brilliant local wines through to picking the right skis for our level of skiing and the conditions - changing them as the conditions changed - that's service!

The ski room was well fitted out and less than a minute from the piste which was bliss. The fastest day's skiing was spent following Michael who was a dream guide; we went to Cortina and it seemed everywhere in between, which involved taking a bus as it's not quite seamless skiing and as soon as Michael realised we might have to queue, suddenly fleets of taxis or a bus magically appeared to whisk us on our way.

OUr room had fabulous views down across Corvara and the mountains. They were comfortable and spacious, my only gripe would be the some days the towels were a bit threadbare - I'd suggest they don't replace the towels every day but make sure they are better quality.

The food was good quality and plentiful - too much if you took advantage of one of the many gorgeous mountain restaurants including their own Punte Trieste which was great fun and excellent food.

The wellness centre offered excellent facilities and a very relaxing end to a day's skiing.

With the fabulous scenery and skiing we are definitely going to be returning to the Sporthotel.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front of the main hotel have lovely views.

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.
