It had gone dark and we left it rather late before finding a hotel. We wanted somewhere in the Zillertall Valley but didn't want to drive too far as we would see the rest the following day. Also we wanted to be fairly close to the motorway where we could make our way to Salzburg the following day.The Malerhaus in Fugen was the first we saw in a well lit area on the main road where it was easy to pull in. It had the advantage of having a restaurant where we could get an evening meal and was right opposite the railway station where we could go to Mayrhofen. The hotel is owned by the Haun family and it was Mr Haun who we spoke to at reception. He is very friendly and his English is very good. We were given a room on the first floor with a balcony with access to two sides of the hotel. I don't know whether they have "No Smoking" rooms, but I wish Mr Haun had asked us or we had asked him. This was the only disappointment as the room smelled of smoke. A pity the Austrians have not resorted to a "Zero No Smoking ban" in restaurants too as when we came to eat, there were several people smoking. Fortunately, they were far enough away and didn't really affect us. We opted for the Pasta and Pizza dishes which were very nice and served by a charming waitress. The room was very comfortable despite the lingering smell of smoke. The breakfast was served in a very ellegant breakfast room and there was ample food available. I think it would be Mrs Haun who was on hand to assist with coffee etc.The following day Mr Haun advised us about trains to Mayrhofen and we left our car on the car park while we took the trip up the valley. This is a worthwhile trip if only to see the yellow cable cars pass over the valley against a background of snow on the mountains.
