This has to be the worst hotel to stay for a holiday. If there are 3 persons in this hotel, they give you a room with 2 single beds and a mattress on the floor for the third person. The Transun rep was next to useless. When you complain she tells you to see the hotel owner. I had to... More

Dear Tulip, thank you for your visit! It made us all really sad after reading your such an unsatisfied review. As we are a family-run hotel we remember (almost) all of our guests, also you. During this Xmas season of Transun we only had one, your, family of three persons sharing a twin room. Most of our rooms (20 of... More

We stayed at the hotel for 5 nights with half-board. First of all, the location is very convenient. It is just few minutes walk from the bus stop, restaurant and supermarket. Also the backyard of the hotel is great for viewing the northern light. The room is cosy, with the feel of a log cabin yet equipped with amenities. We... More

Lovely visit with two children and two grandparents. Stayed in the main hotel but pine clad room felt like a cabin and children loved their mezzanine sleeping area. Hotel extremely well organised, discreet but very efficient staff and simple but superb and wholesome meals that the kids loved but gave a taste of local food. Setting also superb, easy walk...

All right, the hotel is just about in the middle of Raw Nature, just off the Main Road in fact, int he heart of Lapland, its wide open spaces, endless woods and too many to be numbered ponds, lakes, creeks, and, in the summer, clouds of starving mosquitoes...Coming form Sweden, do not forget that Finland is one hour ahead of...

Stayed here just after Christmas 2013 for a Santa Trip with my husband and two daughters aged 8 and 5. The hotel is ideally located just off the main road, but when I say main road there was perhaps one car every half hour! It is a fairly short transfer from Enontekio airport perhaps no more than 30 mins. We... More

I've visited Hetan Majatalo for a dozen times and never been disappointed. They really look after you, offer delicious Lappish food and a peaceful haven away from the busy world. The place is just a step away from marvellous hiking paths in summertime and a short drive from the Finland's best ski resorts in winter. Do not miss this experience.

We stayed here with a group of cycling friends as a stop off on our long trip. Sauna was a great relief and the breakfast had a vast array of choices. Shame there wasn't any food in the restaurant but it was low season and other places nearby served food. Friendly and relaxed atmosphere throughout

Hei HippyJR! Kiitos, thank you for your stay and such a nice review. :) Unfortunately our summer guests arrive on such different times and maybe have been eating already on their way and we prefer serving Majatalo's food only from buffet. That is why we do not serve dinner so often during summer season. We have three nice different kinds... More

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...
