We stayed 3 nights at the hotel - the first two in a Queen suite and the last one in a glass igloo. The Queen suite is amazing with a very generously sized log cabin with a 4 poster bed, open fire, free standing bath, sauna and a hot tub. Definitely a very romantic experience. The glass igloo was an experience - we expected the restriction on luggage so were prepared. The beds were fun but as it was snowing we didn't need the electric bit any way.
We organised the trip through Activities Abroad and so the luggage transfer mentioned by many was included in the price and was very enthusiastically undertaken by the staff.
We found the staff helpful through out and actually commented that they didn't undertake a 'hard sell' approach to the trips. We enquired about one and were given time and space to discuss it before booking.
The food isn't great but it's adequate and we enjoyed smoked salmon on toast for breakfast - although herring is never going to be my thing so early in the morning. The restaurant staff were helpful and it was worth the upgrade to the salmon as a treat - although perhaps it's a little expensive. The barman was helpful, chatty and very skilled.
Only disappointing things were the lack of a few of the advertised 'attractions'. It seems many are only available to large convention style bookings.
Definitely recommend the reindeer safari and snowmobiling. Staff on these were great to talk to and I feel we learned a lot about the Sami people as well as seeing great scenery.
