What a winter wonderland. Not commercial just a comfortable stay with great staff and homely rooms that are stylish yet make you feel at home. Big window in room for possibility of seeing northern lights and in room sauna. Great breakfast but limited vegetarian options on dinner menu. I will stay here again

I like the location away from bustling city and the hotel is very peaceful. The service are excellent with free flow of water at the lobby. There is NONE that I did not like about this hotel.

Incredible Christmassy hotel with such caring and friendly staff going above and beyond to help you - especially the weekend staff. Picked this hotel despite it being so far away from Rovaniemi because we were hoping to have more chance of seeing the northern lights. Unfortunately we didn’t get to see them and there’s a real issue with the transport service. Not regular enough shuttle service and it doesn’t drop off at Santa Claus Village or Santa Park so we had to go through a massive back and forth with the driver to try and sort this and because the times are so infrequent we ended up having to get a taxi more than once - SO expensive and while the weekend staff arranged them for us on a meter at roughly €150 the weekday staff prebooked them for €263... which was a horrendous rip off! Despite us trying to explain the difference in price the weekday staff weren’t willing to budge on this which wasn’t very good. There were flaws with the location and the transport issues , but this took nothing away from the beauty and the atmosphere of this beautiful hotel. Would definitely recommend it.

Charming little hotel with a christmas-y feel

Stayed two nights in this charming hotel and everything was perfect, from hotel service to comfort of rooms. Nested near the Luosto National Park, it provides a good Aurora alarm service.
