A happy birthday

Rooms cozy and with a personal a sense of style, as was the restaurant. Food really very competently done, a good celebratory supper. Would love to see an extension to the premises, with a bar around a fireplace and perhaps a little terrace with warming lamps. Now there are rooms and the restaurant, but no real place to sit and have a drink with a book. Warmly recommended.

    We were lucky enough to stay here in December 2019 for 3 nights. Lovely place to stay, room was small but cosy, food was fantastic, and the staff were very friendly. Would highly recommend. Hopefully we will travel there again.👍

    We visited this hotel with our 3 young children recently. We were worried about their response to the (lovely but adult) menu, however I voiced my concerns to Sirly in advance who prepared a delicious pasta dish just for them. They ate the lot, we had a delicious meal off the main menu and everyone therefore had an amazing time. Sirly was lovely, the staff were all very accommodating of our family and we left feeling very relaxed and full (plus amazed that we'd managed a civilised meal in a lovely restaurant with 3 kids in tow!). Would most definitely go again. Thanks to Sirly and staff!

    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!

    Room tip: in the first floor

    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.

    Missing ingredients in our main food. When waitor was made aware of it she apologized that she couldnt see inside the burger... Laughable, the missing ingredients was then brought to out table on a plate besides the main food. Poor excuses and no coffe or dessert on the house. They still have a Long way to go to even reach normal International standard.

    Dear Christoffer,

    I am so sorry for the missing ingredients. I will take full responsibility my self, as a Chef.
    Our summer menu is simple, but we use fresh ingredients. As you can see, summer in Lapland is slow and there is no change to run michelin star level restaurant with two people working and few customers. It is really important for us to make tasty food even it's not that busy. We grow our own herbs, bake fresh bread every day and really do this with love. Hope to see you again and I wish you a beautiful summer.
    -Sirly Schinmann, Chef and owner-
