Really really enjoyed the place, beautiful view, big and spacious with personal sauna room. It has excellent service both in and out, but you are pretty much left on your own to wander which is great for me. This is a dainty little town, and this is one of the better options that you can have, with everything covered from... More

What an amazing place this is, we stayed in the Gielas rooms, better standard than any UK hotels we have stayed in, own personal sauna in room, a bath, balcony, friendly staff, clean restaurants, WiFi everywhere, cant fault anything. Most staff members have excellent english skills and nothing is too much trouble

We stayed here as part of a package with Santaslapland.We had an apartment that has its own sauna!!!! Although we were not in the room much,because,we were out playing!!!!! We liked the drying room,where you put your outer clothes to dry, they were always warm to put back on. It had underfloor heating and had plenty of wardrobe space,it also... More

We stayed 4 nights B&B December 2015 through thomsons. The room was small and poor. Definitely upgrade to gielas or stay somewhere else! Hotel food was ok, nothing special. Hotel surroundings/views were very good!

We stayed at the Gielas Suites which was a very nice building with comfortable rooms. Breakfast was served there but other meals were at Tunturi Hotel. The whole trip was very well organised by Esprit/Santa's Lapland with Elves all over the place from start to finish. Food was perfectly acceptable with lots of choice to suit everyone.( You aren't on... More

We timed it to stay in Santa's hotel for chasing the northern lights. Just after the new year, it was perfect timing as there was no moon. The temperature dropped to minus 29C, so the sky was clear in the evening. Indeed we saw the green lights dancing one evening just by the hotel. We stayed in apartment 334, which... More

We went here in December and had a fabulous trip, we booked with santa lapland and there were issues with the flight but it was still a magical experience. I would definitely recommend upgrading to the Gielas section of the hotel as it is modern and worth every penny.. The main hotel rooms were very basic but the restaurant and... More

We stayed in the Gielas Wing and cannot fault it, it was cosy, clean and spacious, everything we needed after a cold day in the snow. Our room was perfect for the four of us, we had the nice addition of our own sauna, plus lovely views of snow covered trees. We ate breakfast here which offered plenty of choice... More

Stayed here for the second year running, this time with Inghams for a week. We picked the Gielas building again as I really loved it last time. And yet again it didn't disappoint. Plenty of room to store our belongings and the sauna was well used after a hard days tobogganing! The experience with Inghams was different to Santa's Lapland... More
