We went here for our honeymoon and spent a week at the hotel, doing most of the activities they had on offer. The staff at the hotel and restaurant were very friendly, our room (small apartment) was amazing, and the food and service were all very good. Special mention for the guides of the activities, who were all absolutely excellent!... More

I stress at the outset that have not stayed at this hotel, This review focusses instead on the icustomer service we received when trying to make a booking. Four of us tried to book one of the cabins for March 2014. The hotel tried very hard to sell us a package at a total cost of more than €5500. When... More

The snow was lacking but we still managed some amazing activities including rolling a Skidoo on ice on Lake Inari (wife on the back!). The hotel was fab and all staff really friendly. Food was amazing and the drink not... More

This was our second time to Finland and Nellim is really quite remote, from nearest airport it was a 50km drive to the Hotel. First impressions were very good. Hotel is warm, well appointed, all activities are well organised and planned. Weather was disappointing but there was little anyone could do about that. Food at the Hotel was plentiful and... More

We stayed with 3 couples in room 303. Small but comfortable with private sauna. The excursion were great but often shorter than announced. Credits should go to the excursion leaders; they cared in a responsible way but they were sloppy about safety instructions, except Matthias, the Dutch guy. The food was great! It really was. The "but..." In the title... More

We had a wonderful stay at Nellim for 6 nights during March 2014. The trip started off for us as a northern lights trip, but by the end it was all about the whole experience and all the wonderful activities we got to do. We booked our package through the Aurora Zone rather than directly through the hotel, although if... More

We booked a family holiday through Activities Abroad, and thoroughly recommend doing it that way, as it meant everything was organised really well by Ben. The hotel was great, with friendly staff and amazing activities led by superb guides (especially Matty and Oute). We had an apartment with 2 bedrooms, a sitting area and sauna/jacuzzi (no 302) which was great... More
