Put a lot of research into this one. So much so that dragged the poor family in a taxi to check out the next contender on my list... a Santa hotel in the town centre. Spent a week here & it was a fantastic choice. Firstly you get the authentic experience, it's out in the sticks & the atmosphere is... More

Very nice athmosphiere, good food, big hotel building and really great nature: lake, forest etc. Very silent - you sleep so well there! Good place for intensive group meetings / working sessions. And location quite near Rovaniemi City and Airport is very good - no need for hours of car traffic. I could also think having a family meeting /... More

We went in December 2014 and it was absolutely fantastic. The hotel is set in the middle of nowhere which Is fab. The snowy iced lake was magical. We took out own "sledge" in our suitcases which meant the boys could use them at any time. We booked an excursion online before we went which was great and did it... More

I really enjoyed the location of the Lapland Bears hotel but my room never matched the pictures at all. It was very basic and tired but for one night it was OK. I would not stay in these particular rooms for more than one night. I believe they may have some better rooms but could not confirm. Breakfast was excellent... More

Lovely hotel in a beautiful setting in the forest. We spent Christmas here with my 7 year old son and it was just magical. The hotel is basic but warm and cosy and all the staff speak English. The food is mostly local dishes which probably isn't for everybody but I really enjoyed it. The only downside was the choice... More
