Best for… those on a budget

If you’re looking for a last-minute deal and want the best value accommodation for your money, take a look at Chalet St Lukas. The comfortable lodge is located in a quiet setting a short walk from the centre of Mayrhofen and has recently been refurbished in a traditional Tyrolean style.

Like the majority of log cabins in the area, Chalet St Lukas is fully catered, so you can expect breakfast every day of the week, afternoon tea with cakes, and four-course dinners including an aperitif, wine, coffee and chocolates for six out of seven days.

There are five types of rooms to choose from, most of which are en suite and have a balcony, while there’s also an in-house sauna and a dining room that doubles up as a TV room/lounge. The chalet is close to a bus stop and also offers free ski and boot storage at the lifts.

Best for… middle of the road spenders

You might not want to pay over the odds for a luxury break, but similarly don’t want to spend your getaway in the most basic of accommodation, which makes the Chalet Haus Tirol ideal for those who want comfort but not at too steep a price.

Located right in the centre of Mayrhofen, Chalet Haus Tirol is just a two-minute walk from the Penken gondola and is well placed for hitting the bars and clubs if you want to experience the resort’s lively apres-ski scene.

Bedrooms have toilets, en suite showers and balconies, and there’s a dining room in the chalet, which serves up a cooked breakfast, afternoon tea and three-course evening meals six days a week. On the final evening of your stay you can expect a four-course farewell dinner with aperitifs and wine. There’s also a public cafe bar underneath the chalet, and a room for storing your skis and boots.

Best for… a luxury break

The comfortable chalet lodge, Stoanerhof, has a traditional appearance and offers well appointed bedrooms, which boast balconies, en suite bathrooms, a TV and telephone. Family rooms, a sauna and free Wi-Fi are among the amenities available at the lodge, while there are also a number of suites if you require more space for your group.

Approximately 200 m away from the Ahorn cable car, the lodge is in a good position to reach both the lift and the local ski jump area. A five-minute walk will see you arrive at the free local ski bus stop, while another five minutes on foot will take you to the centre of Mayrhofen.

When you’re not skiing or exploring the resort, you can make use of the lodge’s fitness area, and enjoy an apres-ski drink in the bar or a get-together in the snug.
