The hotel was part of a package through Dreams of Lapland/Transun and we spent 3 nights/4 days there after having had a day trip cancelled. They upgraded us to the 3 night package so we were delighted - but didn't look at other hotels to compare in the area as it was all included in our trip. The hotel is...

We booked a 3-night trip with Transun, I was travelling with family from the UK. The hotel was lovely, just as described, simple, homely, family-run. It was clean, warm and comfortable - the drying cupboard in the room was a god-send for the snow suits and boots - you could just hang them up while you went for lunch and...

The bathroom was clean, with a shower/toilet/basin which was all we needed. Kettles are not provided in the rooms but you can request to borrow one from reception (which...

Just returned from the most amazing trip. We are a family of 5 and booked through Transun. Cannot fault this family run hotel which is just 10-15 minutes from the airport. It is warm, cosy and spotlessly clean. The rooms are lovely. We stayed full board and really enjoyed the food which is plentiful and varied. The hotel is situated...

Stayed in the hotel for 2 nights, on the way to Northern Norway. There are 2 types of rooms, namely simple guestrooms with toilet/shower in the corridor, and hotel rooms incl toilet/shower. We stayed in the hotel room. Though the place doesn’t really feel like a hotel, more like a big family house. The hotel rooms are fairly big and...
