We travelled from N.E. England. The aim of the visit was to treat my husband to the Sampo for his birthday. All the touristy attractions were based at Rovaniemi but the ones we wanted to do were based in Kemi, which were the Ice Breaker, Ice Castle and the Northern Lights, all could be accessed from either Rovaniemi or Kemi. The hotel was welcoming, warm and clean and when we booked in around 6.30pm local time the receptionist told us the Sauna was open. We stayed 4 nights. We ate in the hotel restaurant for 3 nights, and the 4th night we ate at a Finnish restaurant which my husband didn't enjoy as much as the meals in the Cumulus Hotel. There was a good variety of food in the hotel restaurant, the time we were there they were running a Chilli Menu which we tried on the 2nd night and thoroughly enjoyed it, there was an interesting chocolatey chilli pudding but we couldn't manage a 3rd course unfortunately.so I didn't get to try it. The Staff were all lovely, friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble for them. We didn't try the Sauna til the 4th day, I realised then why the receptionist had recommended it when we landed because it would have been perfect to 'chill' in after our journey.
Rather basic hotel, but good breakfast and everything works.
Cost me about 424 euros per night, which is very expensive for the standard of the room (at best a 3 star acco), but during the peak season in Rovaemi, hotels are fully booked up and so book in advance. Need own car if planning to stay here. Very good location for sking.
