We stayed four nights in November in the hope of seeing the Northern Lights. Unfortunately it was to cloudy and we didn't see them. It snowed heavily our first night and the hotel needed to dig our car out so we could go for a drive which they did with no problems. It was quite windy which made getting out and walking around a little tricky. While the theme suites are very nicely decorated in the theme of the continent we represented we were disappointed that they didn't have a comfortable couch to sit on and the Japanese bath was quite a step up to get to. The hotel did look after us with a change of room however in hindsight I would just have chosen a deluxe room - though the Antartica suite looked fabulous. The food in the restaurant was very nice and the staff extremely helpful, the manager introduced himself which was a nice touch. Breakfast was nice and plenty to choose from. We took a super jeep tour and that was great.
