Fantastic sauna rooms
We had a great time at this hotel. Our room had a private sauna, which we used several times and really enjoyed. The room was large and comfortable. The hotel itself is located outside of town and a little confusing to get to the first time (especially as it gets dark very early). It's also a higher elevation than the area around it to try and increase Northern Lights viewing. We actually found that did not help us see the Lights, as there was often a lot of fog which blocked the lights. But it wasn't hard for us a drive a short distance for better viewing. The staff was varied. Several went out of their way to be helpful and give advice/suggestions. One or two seemed like we were bothering them when asking questions. Breakfast had a lot of options, but we found the food bland. All in all, we really enjoyed this hotel and would stay here again.

Excellent hotel overall. We had the Aurora Cabin. Rooms are extremely comfortable and well thought out. Heated floors, comfortable bed, heated windows for the night sky view. Bathroom well designed. Breakfast is included and there’s plenty to choose from : the usual toast and spreads, cereal, hot food (eggs/bacon/sausages etc), yogurt with plenty of toppings, cheeses and cold cuts, fruit and desserts. Plenty of hot drinks on the machine to choose from and the hot choc was great! Dinner at Kaunis was excellent and well worth trying. Staff extremely polite and friendly. 30 min walk to Saariselka town in the snow. I suggest renting a car. No complaints here and we are already planning our next trip.

10/10 Exceptional

Excellent property! A perfect location if one wants to see the Northern Lights, especially with the glass roofed bedroom. Perfect breakfast! Perfect staff! The door of the room was a bit loose and with the very powerful (and apparently uncharacteristic) winds in the area, the door kept squeaking throughout the night. The noise of the wind was very loud in the room. It would be nice to finish the pavement outside the rooms or between adjoining rooms perhaps. But, overall amazing!

8/10 Very good

Hotelli upealla paikalla ja henkilökunta erittäin ystävällistä. Aamiaiset ja ruoka hyvää. Kaikki toimi moitteettomasti. Ainoa miinus oli, että expedian varaus aurora mökistä oli kääntynyt hotellilla normaali huoneeksi ja ehdimme tyhjentää tavarat sisään ennenkuin kävin kysymässä asiasta. Saimme kuitenkin heti vaihdettua uuteen paikkaan.
