Lovely boutique hotel

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 23 Mar 2019via mobile
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.

Sitting in the airport waiting for my plane, and thinking back on a very memorable stay at Aurora Estate. What a high-mark in hospitality! Heidi never tires of making the guests’ stay as pleasurable as possible, while Sirly is a truly excellent cook. We had 5 diners and the food is simply the best (and apparently famous in the region). Our room was clean and comfortable (although a couple of hooks to hang our skiing gear on to dry would be welcome). Very good beds (I’m 1.87 m)! I have been to Lapland in summer for fly fishing, but would certainly recommend a winter stay. If you do, stay here! (And Sirly: if you start offering fishing trips I will certainly be back in summer).

Extremely nice surroundings to have a dinenr with an international group. Delicious local cuisine utilising fish and reindeer. The service was excellent, and the guests were kept happy througout our visit.

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.
