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.

We came and visited the Estate in December with friends and the experience was mindblowing!

First of all, the hotel was luxorious in a practical way: the nordic design was beautiful and practical and even the smallest details were taken into consideration. The beautiful and clean rooms are designed from a customer's point of view - and it really works!

Second , the location was superb ! Even as a regular traveller to the north it felt magical to see the Northern Lights from my window. So cool.

Third, the craftmanship includes everything from the food to customer service. Food was amazing and the girls (owners) seem to know all the right people - husky rides, snowmobile rides or cross country skiiing, they will make it work. I really enjoyed the time spent with Atlas the Malamute.

For me, the warm atmosphere and the Lappish hospitality was the thing that made my stay extraordinary! It is rare to feel like this in a hotel - the small size makes you feel welcomed and you get the best and most customized service in town with the best accessorizes! Me likes !

This hotel is in a good location, away from the hustle and bustle, in the charming settlement of Yllasjärvi, which is stunning in the snow. The high point is the absolutely amazing restaurant and the wonderful breakfast, with well-made omelettes, home-baked items, fresh fruit, excellent sausages or bacon - all served based on choices you make the previous evening. Dinner at the hotel was also exceptional, but extremely expensive as well. Good thing to do as a treat, but certainly not every evening, unless you are quite wealthy indeed.
The room was rather dissappointing, however. A very basic bathroom and a very, very small double room, where there was hardly room to even turn around. The decor is 'cozy' but that still did not make up for the lack of space - and I was a single person occupying a double room. I am not sure how my friends in another 'double', sharing, managed. Essentially, the room is hardly bigger than the space needed for a bed, a wardrobe and a very small side table. There is not even room for a decent nightstand, which can get annoying if you like to have a book, a phone, and other items next to the bed. Still, the perception of space is largely cultural, so perhaps there are many who would not mind. Indeed, my friends seemed quite satisfied with their room.....
Back to the positive - the hotel also has a lovely, cabin-like building with a sauna and an outdoor jacuzzi that you can rent for a couple hours. This was extremely relaxing and worth doing - although, again, not particularly cheap. The cabin has some drinks available, a seating area and a lovely fireplace. Very charming!
Service is professional and unobtrusive.
All in all, I would recommend the place highly, but if you are claustrophobic stay away and if you are traveling alone, don't hesitate to get a double room anyway!

After some business days in Helsinki we descided to visit Lappland, hoping to see there a "golden autumn " and some aurora borealis.
Based on tripadvisor´s recommendation we booked Aurora Estate Hotelli - Travellors Excellence 2019. Travelling by plane & rent a car and based on excellent consulting by Heidi, one of the owners of AURORA, we discovered Lappland at its best ! - .
Heidi & Shirly wellcomed us warm-hearted in their cosy Hotel which is located in the open landscape directly on the banks of a lake. Hills for skiing/walking are nearby.

Fortunately. the hotel is in the modern. regional style, which means a lot of wood and fireplaces - a guarantee for pleasant room climate. Our sleeping room ( size / bed / bathroom as well as the view from the window) has been perfect and well kept
as the rest of the hotel. After a delicious dinner with risotto and mushrooms and
whitefish in versions for gourmets, complemented by delicious premium white wines,
we enjoyed the very personal style of our hosts in a subsequent conversation about
the aurora timing of next night / the country/ the people and their customs and about potential day trips in the region. Consequence: we saw next midnight a perfect Aurora B in front of the hotel - a unique experience in our life.
Next morning - after a breakfast for upgrown Finnish men and a coffe that awakened the Italian in you - we promised our hosts, that we will come back to this " pure" place in June to celebrate the midsummer night!

This is a small boutique hotel 10 minutes drive from Yllas, the biggest ski resort and great hiking area in Lapland.
The hotel is run by Sirly and Heidi, who do an amazing job with this little jewel by the lake. Sirly cooks like a master chef in a Michelin star restaurant and she is extremely artistic with the layout of the dishes.
Well worth the trip just to go to their restaurant. By far the best fine dining we had in Lapland.
There is a second little house on the side where you can have private dinners and where there is a sauna and jacuzzi.
Amazing place - must visit in Summer or Winter. 40 minutes from Kittila airport.

I got a warm welcome, got spoiled two weeks long from the Team and got a warm farewell...
It's a real nice quiet place next to the lake, with a nice view and the hotel is only 3-4 years old...
Supermarket, bus station and country ski tracks are only 200m away...
I liked Sirly cooking art, exceptional breakfasts and dinners, food quality, plate presentation and the lovely detailed explanations about what you get in your plate! ;-)
I enjoyed the atmosphere with love to details and the music in the dining room!
It's very clean, i had a good bed and i appreciated the Nespresso coffee machine in my room... ;-)
Mirja is a sunshine!!

We stayed for 4 nights here while holidaying in Finland for 3 weeks. It was a nice change to stay in a smaller boutique hotel and in a quieter location next to the lake. We loved the sauna and jacuzzi and we loved jumping in the frozen lake, what an experience for an australian family. So much so that we booked it again while we were there. The rooms are quite small but we found they were adequate if you popped the suitcases on top of the wardrobe and the rooms we not much smaller than the rooms we've stayed in elsewhere. The breakfasts were huge, more than enough for our family and a great selection too. We had dinner only 1 night and the food was fabulous, fine dining style, small portions but all excellent. It was pricy, but then for us everything in finland has been pricy and no more expensive than anywhere else we've been of similar quality. The staff and owners were actually really lovely and helpful, they even printed off a whole heap of school work pages for our daughter and helped us out when our transport didn't arrive. We got to see the northern lights on our last night, what was really nice was that the owner sent us messages to let us and other guests know that the lights were there. It was quite late too, we could have easily missed it. The location is great, there are 2 other restaurants within walking distance. The views from the hotel are stunning too. We didn't have a car but we did get picked up everyday by the company we did our tours with, Due North Safaris so no problem there.

We stayed as a two couples during the glory of Lappish Autumn.

Aurora Estate is a delightful Bed and Breakfast where the hosts Heidi and Sirly make you most welcome in their character-filled establishment. The location is superb by the lake and is supported by a number of facilities. The meals produced by Masterchef Sirly are class leading using the best quality ingredients. We look forward to return.

Lovely stay overall. Food and service was excellent. Great location overlooking a lake, sauna house was very good. The rooms are small but well decorated, excellent shower.
The two young ladies running the hotel are very professional and you can feel their passion for their business.
