This holiday was truly magical, worth every penny and is definitely a trip everyone should do at least once in their life. We did the Christmas trip with Thomson, leaving Christmas Eve for 5 days.

This hotel was very welcoming and the rooms were kept warm and cosy (although at times too warm!) Our room was sufficient although a door between bedroom & lounge area could have been handy. Shower and bathroom were adequate. Sadly we found we didn't have time to use to small sauna. The big clothes drier was very useful. The meals... More

We were alpine skiing on our holiday. We flew to Kittilä airport and took the airport bus which took us in front of the hotel. We had a package from the hotel with skiing tickets and equipment included. Also breakfast and dinner was included as well. The staff was lovely and helpful. The skiing was excellent. The ski bus left... More

Rented a cottage with the hotel 8 years ago. Now only back for a visit. Nice to be back, very friendly lady at the restaurant/reception. Would recommend it. Very well situated, near the cross country tracks, and a small walk to the very big supermarket in the village. Go to the lake at night to see the northern lights.

We spent the 24th-29th December at the Snow Elf Hotel. We stayed in the main building and were glad we had, easy to go to meals and the evening entertainment without the constant bundling into snow suits and layers. The rooms were a little small, but had everything you needed. The staff were friendly and helpful and our 6 year... More

Stayed for 4 days just before Christmas and it was brilliant. Upgraded to one of the lodges on arrival. Room had sauna log burner and plenty of space for us all. Food was really nice with lots of choice. Location was good with supermarket a five minute walk away. Kids loved sledging around the hotel. Didn't do any of the... More

I have just returned from a weeks stay in Yllas with my husband. We stayed in one of the log cabins but had half board at the Hotel. Its important to note that if you choose to stay in a cabin rather than the hotel you may have a 10- 15 minute walk (in sub zero temperatures) to get your... More

We spent a great deal of time researching where to stay and it paid off; this was a wonderful experience. The hotel was beautiful. Really helpful staff and the meals were outstanding: so much selection and most of it was healthy. We'd read a couple of reviews that said this hotel wasn't good for food; either the reviewer was daft... More

We booked the 4 year New Year break with Thomson. The hotel was great and served it purpose well. It is in a good location to walk to the village to hire skies for cross country skiing and we also booked an evening Northern Lights snow shoe walk with Sabrina at Seven Fells Up after seeing their stand in the...

We went for 3 nights 14th-17th December. It wasn't too cold when we were there only just below zero. We had the best time ever. Traveled with Thomson and the Thomson reps were amazing, especially deck the halls Dom, he was so funny. The taster sessions only last around 2 minutes each, so if you really want to experience it...
