This truly is a very welcoming hotel - Tina and her staff took great care, her mum cooked delicious, traditional food each evening. The hotel is situated in a quiet area of the small town, but the shops are very close by and can be reached easily by foot. The rooms are simple, but cosy, spacious and very well-maintained. And...

We stayed here just for one night on our way further north. We had our two dogs with us and stayed in the older house in the yard. The room was very basic, with and old bunk bed and two single beds. WC in the hallway. My only concern was being on the second floor in a large wooden building,... More

Dear Birgit, thank you for your review. Oh, you have been here in Hetta during an electricity breakdown. That happens sometimes here in the village for example because of the wind, snow, cold.. In Finland we have very strict safety rules and we are acting according to these rules or even better here in Majatalo. There are smoke detectors in... More

We spent 4 fabulous days in this most magical part of the world. The hotel was everything we could have wished for, from the cosy rooms to the well cooked delicious food. Thank you so much to Tina and her team for looking after us all so well, we didn't want to come home. Best regards, The Henderson's x

We stayed at the hotel on a Transun Santa holiday. Although there were only 3 of us we paid an under occupancy supplement to have a 4-5 person room. The room was easily big enough for 4-5 with plenty of storage and our 4 year old enjoyed having the mezzanine to himself. I was worried about how warm the bedding... More

We were just passing by and looked for a place where we could have a sauna bath This was the only place in the village that wanted to offer us this service. We did not spend the night in the hotel but we had a nice sauna bath. The staff was very friendly and the place seemed nice.
