My wife and I stayed in the Hovi cabins early Feb 2014 and booked through Crystal. The cabin was warm, clean, and well appointed, but some of the furniture a little tired, there is no WiFi and although the TV provided is analogue. 50 per cent of the programs are in English, underfloor heating is supplied to the toilet and front hall areas, electric heaters throughout the rest (along with a wood burning stove in the lounge ) This is important in a Norwegian winter where everywhere looks like a picture postcard.
the cabins are of traditional Norwegian construction of timber and the roofs covered with soil ( and snow) and are a ten minute walk up hill to the ski slopes, we took our ski boots with us and changed near the six person chair lift , but you could ski all the way back .The snow conditions condition of the piste and piste staff were all perfect, Norway is gorgeous in its winter whites with mountains and ice lakes.
We used the facilities at the radision blue hotel, and enjoyed every minute in the land of trolls and nogin the nog
Cristal staff tried very hard and would always go the extra mile to help.In the resort every one speaks english and was helpfull and polite
Norway is expensive but we new that before we went, so took all our own food and most of our drink, most bars have WiFi ,
would do it all again
