Positive Reviews

Spectacular views over the forest

The great views over the forests were definitely most guest's favourite feature of the hotel. The hotel is situated on a prominent ridge with views as far as the eye can see. Guests especially like the views from the restaurant and roof terrace.

Great winter location for children

Quite a few guests travelled with their young children in winter. Aside from the typical winter activities like tobogganing and building snowmen, which were a great hit, they could also visit Santa Claus Village nearby. About as close to his North Pole base as a family holiday could get.

Friendly and helpful staff

Many guests go out of their way to compliment the staff on the manner they carried out their duties. They were described as especially kind, and always willing to help guests were they could.

Negative Reviews

Restaurant only open for dinner

A couple of guests expressed their disappointment that the main restaurant only opened for dinner. While there were other options for breakfast and lunch, the restaurant has a spectacular view, and guests were quite disappointed they couldn't sit and enjoy their lunch while taking it all in.

A bit far from central Rovaniemi

While some guests clearly like the remote location, those with business in Rovaniemi itself were not happy about having to make a fairly long trek in every day. There is a bus service, but it operates only very limited hours, and taxis are expensive.

Wi-Fi costs extra

As with other hotels in the Lapland Hotels Group, Wi-Fi attracts an extra charge. While it isn't excessive, it isn't cheap either, and is charged per device. Most guests are unimpressed that a hotel in Scandinavia can still be charging extra for Wi-Fi, and believe it should be included in the room-rate.
