My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights in November. Chosen on the strength of previous Tripadvisor reviews, I can confirm that all the previous positive comments are true. The rooms are spacious, comfortable and simply but appealingly decorated. The location was an excellent base for our various excursions. Our host, Johann, was extremely friendly and helpful and a highlight was the wonderful meals he prepared for us each night of our stay – genuinely better than most restaurants I can think of. Breakfast each day was also delicious. The remote location would be perfect for viewing the Northern Lights, though sadly during our stay we had to settle for shooting stars, as there was no Aurora activity. I would have no hesitation in staying here again or in recommending the hotel to others.
