Our opinion

Enjoying an unbeatable, ski in–ski out location at the foot of Fieberbrunn’s slopes and with 270 kilometres of piste on the doorstep, the Sport Hotel Fontana offers excellent facilities including a pool and wellness area and is a great choice for families, groups and ski weekends looking for excellent value.

Currently, the Hotel is not officially categorised and was last categorised as a 4* Hotel in Winter 2016-17. We rate this Hotel as 3*+ for its facilities with the location, service and friendliness of the staff, 4*+. The Hotel changed its dinner service from table-service to buffet-style in December 2017 and this received mixed reviews from our regular Fontana guests with some preferring the new format, some the old (pretty much 50:50).

If you are also considering the 4* Alpine Resort Fieberbrunn, we would rate the Alpine Resort as a good half to full star notch up from the Sport Hotel Fontana in terms of quality. Book the Fontana for its location and value, consider alternatives if you are after a more gourmet food experience.

“The Fontana was in the best location for the children’s ski school. Staff all really helpful, food and accommodation great”

“Fieberbrunn was an excellent choice for a ski weekend for a mixed ability group. Everything we wanted - doorstep skiing, excellent après-ski, quality hotel. The whole trip ran like clockwork - would definitely recommend”

“Thank you SO much to the Snowscape team – you exceeded our expectations!”

“Having a resort manager was very helpful and an unexpected bonus! He sorted out everything we needed so we could get straight out on the slopes. Support in the UK whilst getting everything booked was second to none. If only the weather could be organised by you too!! Thanks for everything”

“We had a fantastic holiday, Snowscape and their local Rep were great to deal with. Hotel was very good and loved the ski in/out. Hopefully will be back next year!”

“Second stay in Hotel Fontana and would concur that the buffet style evening meal was a notch down from what we enjoyed last year - breakfasts remained excellent. Snow conditions were superb and all aspects of service likewise”

“The food in the Fontana was all buffet but was excellent. Really lovely holiday”
