Fabulous 8.8 From 180 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
Loved our stay here. Could have stayed longer.
This was my favourite hotel during our trip. Just really relaxed, friendly atmosphere with lounge to relax in, use of hot tub, the staff wake you if northern lights appear and amazing food.

Hotel with stunning views
When we arrived we were put into the separate outbuildings, the room did not correspond with the advertised pictures. We did not have a wardrobe and the radiator did not work. The room consisted of cement covered walls and floor. We spoke to the receptionist who advised that she could not offer a change of room until the next day. She was very accommodating fetching a small heater and a hot chocolate. Once we had moved into the hotel itself, we were more than happy with the accommodation. Breakfast was good with plenty of choice (continental). Staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel is out of town and very quiet, so a car is a must. A nice little service offered, you can get a wake up call if the Northern lights are visible. Our son enjoyed having a soak in the hot tub :)

Very good 8.0
Dinner was amazing!
Check in was fast, friendly and efficient. Our room was a ‘new’ room. It was quite small and sparsely decorated. Bathroom also small and shower leaked through wall into our bedroom making a pool of water beside bed. I trust this is a teething problem which will be sorted. The food however was truly amazing and I would return for that alone! We wanted an isolated location in the hope of seeing the aurora so I would give top marks for this. Overall happy with stay but the room wasn’t too good.
