It was my husband who had for many years wanted to visit the Ice Hotel and I went along fairly reluctantly it has to be said but I am a convert! The whole experience was great fun, we did the Ice Room on the first night which I think was a good choice, managed to get through to breakfast time without having to do a sprint to the loos!! The warm room we had was lovely, looking out onto the snow covered trees and contrary to many reviewers we didn't find it too warm to sleep, in fact I was hotter in the sleeping bag in the Ice Room:-) We tried dinner at both The Old Homestead and the main restaurant, both were excellent, food and service top class. Dinner in the wilderness lodge during the snowmobile excursion was a complete contrast, great fun with the guide preparing it all on the camping stove beside a log fire which he'd lit for us, whilst he'd left us outside gazing at the breathtaking spectacle of the dancing green lights in the starry sky:-) We were so lucky as we had the perfect night for viewing but it was minus 30!!
We found that all the staff were extremely friendly, helpful and spoke perfect English and can only praise the whole set up as very professional but great fun, try it.......!
