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.

The location is very central in the Saariselkä village and offers great possibilities to explore and go skiing any time nearby. The hotel is kind of oldish and the rooms despite being nicely spacy I found to be not so well cleaned. Overall it was tatty, time has a bit passed by in the areas around the hotel. The spa is nice although small offering some good activity possibilities. Breakfast was during a three-day stay every morning the same, so started to be a bit boring. It included quite a wide selection of items to be picked up though. Dinner at a la carte restaurant was kind of a disappointment as it was far too pricy compared to the quality and even amount of the food. It made to feel that money mattered more than actual product.

Apartment, sleeping 8 with 3 double beds and 2 singles, was adequately equipped. resort staff responded very promptly with issues. Fantastic location to enjoy winter sports, including ski-ing, toboganning and snowboarding. Wonderful opportunities for Husky sled driving and reindeer sleigh rides close by (and so many more snow activities.)

Great location in the heart of Saariselka. The hotel is big and has an amazing pool, which the kids loved. The restaurant is very pretty, however just not big enough for the number of guests. I felt like breakfast was a free-for all (had a Benidorm feel about that) The breakfast food was good and had a great selection. Our first night I felt was quite poor selection of food for dinner. Mediocre at best. The thing that bugged me most with the hotel, apart from lots of the staff (not Santa’s Lapland staff-they were jolly enough) not seemingly wanting to be there or help in any kind of way, is the pretence of the angry birds soft play being here. This was a big pull for us when deciding to book the hotel. Our kids would have loved it and it was closed and apparently has been for quite some time. It’s still there on the hotel website and even on the signposts in the hotel. The hotel is large and we were at the back end of the hotel, which was quite the hike with all of the suitcases. Be prepared for that! The family room we had was a lot smaller than I had expected too. Imagine a travel lodge room. There was one wardrobe for all of us, no other storage (suitcase fit under the bed) and it’s a small space to all get ready in the snowsuits. The drying cupboard for the wet gloves/socks etc is small too (and positioned above the toilet....so take care!) and very noisy when it’s on. The room got too stuffy on a night time. I get why they don’t allow guests to open the windows but it would have been nice to have some kind of temperature control for your own room. The tv was all in Finnish. Not that that mattered to us but be aware. There were plenty of sockets in the room for driers/chargers etc and we connected to WiFi in the reception area. Not so much in the rooms. On our last day, our flight time changed, giving us extra hours to be on resort. Despite having paid an awful lot of money to stay at the hotel, they were going to charge us to use the showers to freshen up before we left which I thought was a bit cheeky. We ended up using the shower extension in the toilets to wash instead but I feel that decision could be reviewed by the hotel. If visiting Lapland, prepare for the expense of it. Imagine london and add 30%. I paid over €20 for a pint and a half of cider and a sprite! We would love to visit Lapland again. Would we stay here again. Probably not. The pool was the biggest asset to the hotel. I’d give everything else a generous 3*.

Disappointment with heavy 225€ price! We had a pet superior room (amazing +35€ pet fee). It was the last room, 5 mins walk distance with heavy bags. No fridge / minibar. Not so well cleaned, dog hair on sofa etc. Scratches on door. No shower curtain. Only one heating battery, not enough when it's freezing outside. All day, night and morning loud noises from other rooms and side outside entrance. Don't really want to come back.

This place is stunning. The whole experience is magical. Only downside for us was that we weren’t in the main building so had to drag 2 tired children , cases and bags containing snowsuits etc: to the apartment building down the Road . Having said that it’s was a lovely apartment but couldn’t just nip for a drink without putting full layers , snowsuit , boots etc on to get to the main hotel . I’d definitely return but Roy I’d request a room in the main building.

The hotel is perfect for families- the children really loved the swimming pool and it was a great activity to do in the dark afternoons in Lapland. The hotel is good, clean, well maintained and surrounded by beautiful views. The reception area has a massive log fire - which is lovely to sit around to warm up. The food was great for us - we went B and B and there is plenty of choice.. pancakes, range of cereals, porridge, loads of types of bread (including gluten free) and a range of cold and hot breakfast foods - and choice of fresh fruit. The rooms are big- with large windows, comfy beds, lovely showers that are powerful - and a drying cabinet in the bathroom for drying gloves, hats etc. This was really handy and efficient. We had a fridge in our room which was great as we had bought ourselves some wine through duty free ☺️ The only thing I’d say is that it would be good if saariselka could have a night time lights off policy because it’s so bright in the town with all the lights you have to travel outside the town if you wanted to see the stars.. (or the northern lights). It’s super convenient for the supermarket and restaurants and the end of the taboggan run ☺️

The breakfast buffet was SUPERB! Selection and quality were exquisite. Scrambled eggs were delicious, everything was delicious! I work as a manager in cleaning/housekeeping for the past 20 years, and I was impressed with cleanliness and how well the apartment was maintained. The facility and amenities were over the top, everything from an axe to a sauna was in our apartment. Fully and well-equipped kitchen, washer, dryer, everything to make a great and pleasant stay was provided. Fire place was so nice and gave extra atmosphere to the whole trip. We loved the non-commercial and laid-back atmosphere that could be felt everywhere. Pool and facilities were so nice, clean and well maintained. All kudos to the entire staff!

We stayed in an apartment next to actual hotel. It had two bedrooms and a pull out sofa bed so could sleep 6. Only fault was internet not working in our room, but they were waiting for replacement part and as it is a remote location..... Lots of restaurants/ pubs to walk to. Masses to do from downhill and cross country skiing to walking in snow shoes, husky, reindeer and skidoo safaris. The scenery in winter is breath taking
