Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We stayed here before Christmas as a base to visit Santa Claus Village and Rovaniemi, our room was spacious and clean and equipped with a full kitchenette. We had everything that we needed, the buffet breakfast was plentiful and re stocked efficiently to ensure there was always enough. The children were well catered for with sledges available to use around the hotel and the fire pit at the lake was very welcome in the evening to toast marshmallows! We would absolutely recommend this hotel to other families visiting the area.

Amazing hotel with friendly staff. We were staying one night with my woman and we were impressed. Excellent breakfast and nice views to Kemijoki river. Rovaniemi city is quite closely with shopping possibilities, airport, santa claus village etc.

Although clean the walls were super thin. But two things I thought were VERY CHEEKY they charge €60! For a taxi ride no matter how many people are sharing whereas the bus over the ride is €7 return. I just think that’s unfair considering you have paying guests. It’s taking advantage. The other thing…. Before our excursions (via the hotel) we emailed and we got the quote for two people husky riding and snow mobile. They gave us the price in writing and we agreed When we came to pay at the end of the trip the hotel charged us TWICE AS MUCH for our excursions. It was their error yet we had to pay around €450 more 😣 Very cheeky and disappointing.

Good afternoon Jenny! Could you please contact our info@metsahirvas.fi with topic "Tripsadvisor complaint" about this excursion price issue? We want to check your accounts, it is just not possible to have 450€ upgrade in price because husky and snowmobile prices are 318€/person. In a combo package 298€/person. We need to find how is is possible of false chage +450€ on top of that price, if we need to return something for you. Thank you and sorry for your trouble!

I was so impressed by the beautiful location and the friendliness of the staff. Was made to feel so welcome. My little one borrowed a sledge and we hired boots from the hotel. The room was clean and spacious. The location suited us, it is about 20 mins out of town, felt like a retreat after a day of activities. Would stay again.

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? ;)
