My partner and I booked for three nights at the end of March at the Abisko Mountain Lodge and stayed in one of the cabins, a couple of minutes' walk from the main hotel. After much deliberation we decided to book a cabin to allow us the extra space rather than stay in a room in the main hotel. The cabins have a sitting and dining area with kitchenette plus separate loo and basin on the ground floor and the sleeping area is on the first floor, with four single beds, which is ideal for a family or those, like us, who prefer the more spacious accommodation. There is also a sofa in the sitting area, which can be used as an additional bed if needed. There is no shower or bath in the cabins but across from our cabin was an attractive building with showers and saunas - separate ones for men and ladies - which were fine for our needs.
From the time of our initial booking enquiry to our departure following our stay at the Abisko Mountain Lodge we were treated more like friends than paying clients. All the staff, and particularly Mina, the owner, were informative, helpful and very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. We had breakfast and dinner daily in the mountain lodge, despite having a rental car so we could have dined elsewhere if we had wanted to. Dinner was a set menu and the food was excellent. Wine is not cheap but the cost of living in Sweden isn't either! A nice touch was the complimentary tea and coffee with biscuits, available all day long.
We were shown a couple of rooms in the main lodge and, although we had opted for the extra space in the cabins, the rooms in the lodge were quite large enough for a short stay and had the added benefit of a shower in the room.
We were unfortunate not to see the Northern Lights but we knew in advance there was no guarantee that we would. However, our stay at the Abisko Mountain Lodge and the snow mobile and husky sledding activities made up for our disappointment and perhaps one day we will return, with better luck next time.....
