The hotel rooms are basic but clean and comfortable. The food is plentiful and tasty. Fresh salad is always available which was most welcome. Our Transun rep Caroline was lovely and everything ran like clockwork, very well organised thankyou. My only criticism would be that considering that most people that come here are travelling with children, there wasn't anything organised... More

Dear mussettc, thank you for your visit and review. We would have had some movies for children but as they seem well entertained and no one asked for any we unfortunately did not suggest that ourselves either. Sorry. Hyvää Uutta Vuotta 2016! More

We stayed here over the New Year and really enjoyed our trip. The hotel is very basic but rooms are perfectly adequate and lovely and warm. The food is limited but we usually found there was something there that we liked. The lovely hot chocolate was a welcome change if you did not want coffee or tea. It is an... More

There is feedback for the tour operator and the hotel here as I think it's useful for all who are planning a trip. we booked our Auld Langs S trip to Enontekio through Santa CLaus Trips so had no idea, nor were we told, that Transun was the tour operator so remember to ask the question!

Overall a very good holiday. My only gripe was with transun who advertised It as auld langs sign trip and then didn't arrange a new years celebration as advertised ( apart from a few fireworks at midnight). But that aside the hotel was good , food was good , they even did us a separate veggie meal , the rep... More

I really enjoyed the hotel. It is basic but we knew that before we went. It is a nice wood panelled building in a tiny village, which is what I was hoping from Lapland. The food is nice, plenty of Finnish dishes which I thoroughly enjoyed trying. The family room had a TV though we never watched it and the... More

We booked a Christmas Santa experience Mistletoe and Wine with Transun which was a real disappointment. The Hotel accommodation was OK but the food pretty poor and reminiscent of school dinners. The "festive dinner " which was part of the package was not discernible from any other meal except for what i thought was a boiled ham was apparently boiled... More

A lovely family run hotel with clean cosy rooms. The Staff were very friendly. Tina who seemed to be at the front of house for our entire five day stay was always helpful and friendly. We enjoyed a good range of foods and a traditional Finnish Christmas dinner. I would have liked cheese or meat added to the salad bar... More

Unfortunately I left booking the trip late (August) and could not book with Thompson so booked with Transun. I'd recommend Lapland but not going with this company. Appalling value for money. I expected accommodation to be "simple" that's an understatement. The food was appalling and limited. In terms of the trips included they are a rip off. 45 min Husky... More

We stayed one night after a long hiking trip in the national park. Sauna was warm for us already at the wished time and the service was friendly. The standard room fits well four persons as it iswell designed with maisonette style arrangement. Looking forward to the next visit.
