“Excellent Hotel”
Reviewed 4 January 2011

Once again we have spent a wonderful skiing break with Gunther & all his excellent staff at the Sporthotel. Our 5th time returning & as they save if it's not broken, don't fix it! The Sporthotel ticks all the right boxes for us. Comfortable homely surroundings, excellent service, wonderful friendly, helpful staff (all of whom have been with Gunther for years), good proximity to the slopes & great food. We were there for New Year & a Gala dinner was laid on for us with entertainment to ring in the new year. Gunther is a wonderful host. I cannot say enough positive things about this hotel. Suffice to say we will return!

The sport Hotel is fabulous. As a constant traveller staying in hotel chains this hotel is a haven. The owner Gunther Gatt runs a great hotel with fabulous food and extremely helpful staff. I have asked my children if they wanted to ski somewhere else other than St Johann and without hesitation they said no. They love the place and this will be our 5th visit. If you want to introduce your family to Skiing St johann and the Sport Hotel is the spot.

We have stayed at the Sportshotel on a number of occasions , in summer during August and in winter December or January. The hotel owner Gunther Gatt is an excellent host; he is extremely helpful offering advice in relation to activities such as skiing, hiking, cycling and general information, nothing is too much trouble.
The hotel is charming, very clean, relaxing and has a lovely pool, sauna and leisure facilities, in summer the garden is a beautiful tranquil place with a very tasteful water feature. Bedrooms are very spacious, spotlessly clean, comfortable and well decorated. The food is excellent and special dietary requirement are catered for, the chef is extremely flexible. All the staff are friendly, helpful and courteous.
This hotel has become almost like a home from home, we keep returning, as we always have an excellent holiday. We are looking forward already to returning in January.

Our weeklong stay at the Sporthotel was a pleasure from start to finish. The rooms are comfortable and spacious, the location is extremely convenient, the pool and other amenities are of a high standard and the food is tasty and plentiful. What makes this hotel really special, however, is the staff. With genuine warmth and lightness of touch, they do all they can to make sure that you have the most pleasant stay possible. Whether it's recommending a range of cycle trips when you avail of the free bike hire, helping you choose the right after-dinner schnapps or simply greeting you with a smile in the morning, they take obvious pride in their work and in the wonderful standard of their hotel. St Johann is a terrific little town with a wide range of walks and cycles all around and this hotel is an absolute gem. We'll be back!

The best feature of this hotel has to be its staff. Right from our arrival, a friendly and helpful atmosphere was evident in Sporthotel Austria. Throughout the stay all the staff were extremely hard working, friendly, courteous and good humoured. Service was all you would expect, in that your needs seem to be anticipated and catered for without having to ask. This was done so naturally without being over the top. A special mention should go to Murat, the waiter/barman who was exceedingly attentive- couldn't fault him at all.
The hotel was in a good location, a short walk from the town centre. It had a lovely garden for sitting out in and pleasant terraces to the restaurant and lounge. The public areas were spacious, well kept and comfortable. Rooms, which were reasonably sized, were decorated in a typical Austrian style. Ours did not have a balcony and if booking again I think I would go for this option.
Half board food was good and plentiful. Starters changed daily and there were two main course options alongside Wiener Schnitzel and a variety of vegetarian options. Soup and starters were on offer each day with a wide range of salads.
We did not use the pool or spa facilities but they looked nice. The pool was big enough to do lengths. The pool opened out onto the garden and another couple who used it said they were offered drinks whilst out there.
We had a drink in the lounge each night and prices for the delicious,locally brewed 'Huber' beer were very competitive. We were particularly pleased that the hotel had a no smoking policy. Many of the bars in town did not and this somewhat narrowed down our options, but with smoking on the terraces only, the hotel bar was the obvious choice.
St Johann is a lovely little town, ideal for walking and cycling. There are also good transport links via bus and train to many locations in the area.
Once again, many thanks to all the staff at the hotel who made this such an enjoyable and relaxing stay for us.

We spent just three nights of our holiday at Sporthotel and only wish it could have been more. At first glance this is a traditional hotel with well kept comfortable rooms. The service, it has to be said, is what makes this hotel so special. The staff just couldn't seem to do enough for you - they advised on excellent walks, bike trips, road routes and generally just seemed to be concerned that you had the most enjoyable holiday. A sense of humour added to the mix made for the best three days which we would have loved to extend. We certainly think that we will return. The only drawback was no air conditioning, although when we stayed it didn't prove to be too much of a problem.
We loved our stay.
