We booked through Inghams and found the cabin to be cosy and adequate for two. The 3 boys next door (part of our group party the rest being in the hotel, and apartments), were a little more cramped having to use the sofa as a bed.
There is a lack of cooking area with only 2 electric burners and a microwave. It did state in the brochure a toaster but there wasn't one. As the boys were having a cooking competition all week we lent them our frying pan as they found it difficult to cook for 3 with the utensils they had. We managed fine, only eating in 3 times - a pasta, a rissotto and fresh salmon, coucous and salad. The rest of the time we went out to Julie's. 10 minute walk away and across the road. Wine was expensive (as you would expect) but burgers and pizza good value for money, and main courses about 29 euros for deliciously cooked food in friendly surroundings. It's the liveliest place we found.
The cabin is warm. Average daytime outside temp when we were there about -5 and night -14. We turned the heating completely off and it was still ok, but then we did pre-set the sauna to come on about 4pm to be ready for when we got back from skiing. Then we'd put the log fire on after tea just for atmosphere, but sometimes had to open the front door. Great fun visiting the wood store in the dark with the sledge.
Had an a la carte meal in the hotel on the last night but wasn't overly impressed. The restaurant was large, noisey and not very warm. Not sure what the buffet was like.
If you're hiring skis I recommend the ski shop by the supermarket rather than the one on the left hand side on the main road.
