Having read the previous reviews I was a little nervous about what we would find, but we were not disappointed. We stayed in cabin 55, on the beach and loved it. It sleeps 6 persons so for the two of us it was quite spacious. It has a high ceiling (with a mezzanine level with two further beds) and large floor to ceiling windows allowing us to overlooking the beach and the sea, and in the morning we walked out on a snow covered beach right in front of our cabin. There is a huge terrace and I imagine it is lovely to sit there in summer. Breakfast with a view was a real treat. The cabin was well equipped and even had a sauna (but we did not use it). Staff at the hotel where we picked up the keys and paid was very friendly. My only criticism is that it was hard to sufficiently heat the cabin due to the small heaters and the water cooker must be the slowest in the world. WE have since stayed in two other cabins and this was by far the most expensive place we stayed. Whilst it may be good value for a family of 4 or 6, it was too expensive compared to some other places we have seen. When booking, I was told the cabins on the sea side would have been even more expensive. Pictures to follow
