    We loved the hotel, we stayed in an aurora cabin, it was nice, cute, and it was lovely over looking the snow from bed, the stars were amazing. I’m not sure if you’d get to see the northern lights from there, definitely not as well as in a trip as there’s a bit of light pollution from cars and you get a reflection from the neighbours cabin if their light is on. But the hotel was lovely and a great location, you’re at the top of the ski lift, so you can sledge into town or to the ski resort to hire skis and a lift pass. We had a great stay thankyou

    Visiting Lapland

    We were visiting Saariselka for a Wedding and chose to stay at Star Arctic. The location of the hotel gives amazing views and is situated at the top of the ski slope, allowing you to ski, toboggan or take the ski lift down to the town. Walking down/up however takes around 35 mins. We felt the hotel could have provided a shuttle bus service into the town as the hotel only has one restaurant with quite a restricted menu. There is only one other restaurant close to the hotel (2 minutes walk) however this closes at 5pm with the Ski slope and not an option for dinner. The room was a good size, well presented and clean. There were 2 days however where towels were not changed and house keeping did not make up the room. The stairs that take you up to the bedroom are extremely steep and narrow, which may make it inaccessible for older people or dangerous for children. The buffet breakfast provided was nice but again quite limited in terms of choice. The staff were knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. The excursion we did was the Aurora Snowmobile Hunting, which was really great and would definitely recommended.

    The window heater doesn’t help much. Still have a large piece of snow for switching on half day
