Had a good lunch with family when visiting Lapland. Even the local police eats lunch here, so it cannot be bad, right :) Lunch was busy and there seemed to lot of locals, but there was plenty good food served in the buffet all the time, even ice-cream for desert.

The hotel was reasonably priced, comfortable and nice. Breakfast was ok. The location is good, grocery store and gas station are next to the hotel. Free wifi was a nice extra. I warmly recommend it :)

We have stayed few nights in This hotel. The service was nice and friendly, the bar was cosy. Rooms, however did not look as great as in pictures. It felt a bit cold, bathroom wasn't nicest either and the furniture looked tired. Value for money? Not really, it would be nice to have at least a small kettle with tea..... More
