Nicely 30 mins away from the airport/town near beautiful walking paths in the forest on the lake. Lovely breakfast, lovely dinner, really nice rooms and sauna. Super friendly and nice staff who organises everything for you including all the trips (reindeers, huskies, snowmobiles, hikes, airport transfers etc.) and all for reasonable price . Amazing, highly recommended place. I would not stay anywhere else in Lapland

Such a cozy hotel with the most amazing staff! The food's great, and there is no risk ending up still being hungry after a meal. My room was very nice and tidy, with an amazing view towards the frozen lake. The icing of the cake was being able to enjoy beautiful auroras from the window of my room! A great stay for anyone who appreciates nature and kind people.

The persons there are unique!! Each and every one of them happy to contribute for your best vacations ever! The reception area, with the fire waiting for you and wide windows to the snowy view, is the best welcome place after your every day excersions! The best location you can get, blended in nature, chilling by the river and maybe, away from city's lights, you'll get to see Aurora Borealis!!

We stayed at the hotel for five days after Christmas. Overall we liked our stay very much. Our room was modern and clean. The rest of the hotel had a comfortable and friendly atmosphere. The entire hotel staff was very helpful and welcoming. Breakfast and dinner was great and always freshly prepared. We booked several activities with the hotel. We went ice fishing, snow shoe hiking and did a husky trip, which were organized very well with great personal guides. Overall a wonderful experience in Lapland.

We stayed here for the 1st night of our Lapland holiday and it was perfect! The location is out of the way which is what we wanted and right next to a frozen lake where we saw the northern lights from 😍 We arranged our transfers with them as they were a lot cheaper than the city taxi companies. They even drove us 5km to the nearest shop All of the staff were very welcoming and very friendly. Even lit a fire next to the frozen lake for us when it was -28 degrees The room was also perfect, very new, clean and spacious for all 3 of us It was the perfect way to start our amazing Lapland holiday 😁

Room was perfectly clean and comfy. Easy to drive and arrive from the airport. Just 15-20min drive from the city centre (be careful with the speed limit cameras along the road when driving to the hotel) ! Breakfast was great with a variety of options! Bed was very comfy and warm to sleep. Very quiet and peaceful atmosphere in the hotel. Overall it was a great stay in this hotel !

Hello Henrik! Thank you for your review. Great to hear you had a nice stay here with us. Yes indeed, better be careful with the speed cameras along the main road! But I guess on a holiday we are never in a hurry, are we? ;)

Stayed here for three nights recently, and booked a double room. The room was lovely and the beds are super comfy! They have black out curtains which really helped especially as it didn't get super dark because of the snow. The only thing is the shower, they don't have a proper door on it, so the bathroom floor tends to get soaked, but they do provide a really effective squidy to dry the floor. Otherwise the room and bathroom was clean and really modern and lovely. We actually got upgraded our room from a double to a suit with a little kitchenette and table etc, which ended up working out really well for us as we were on a budget and this allowed us to cook at the hotel. The hotel does also offer breakfast and dinner service. The breakfast service was really good with plenty of choices. I would really recommend this hotel and there were no major faults, but I would also say its best to have a hire car to make getting around a lot easier (cabs are expensive, no joke) and we hired a car from the airport for 100 euros for three days.

We were a group of 30 friends from India who visited this hotel in the second week of March, 2019. While the standard room we stayed in was rather small, it was neat and functional. The striking feature about this hotel is the extraordinary hospitality extended to us from all the staff particularly Janita and Markus. When we arrived at the hotel, we were pleasantly surprised to see the staff offer to carry our rather large suitcases up a flight or two of stairs (depending on the floor where the rooms were located) with a smile on their faces! When a few couples in our group expressed their inability to negotiate the stairs (there were no elevators in the hotel), they were given large suites on the ground floor at no extra cost! When I told Markus that my suitcase's zip had been damaged during our journey, he offered to get it fixed by his tailor the next day. While we were away at Santa Claus Village enjoying ourselves, Markus not only did what he had promised but Janita was kind enough to send me a message that my suitcase had been fixed and to enjoy my day without worry! That night, Markus took us to a spot near the hotel to try our luck with the northern lights and stayed with us till about midnight when we decided to retire having seen just a little glimpse of that elusive phenomenon! The next morning, we had an early check out and an early breakfast was served to us by the staff, again with their trademark smiles! Indeed, it was hospitality par excellence!!!
