10/10 Exceptional

I was a little worried after reading the reviews, when I booked this place in the summer of 2022. But it's a half igloo, it's expensive, but I couldn't wait to give it a try. Yes it is expensive, but I wish we had stayed two nights instead of just one. The 'igloo' part of the 'house' is rather small but enough. The bed there is for two, plenty of space. And then there's another room for the other two with a small window. Then there's a shower/bath and closet. It's cozy and warm. We didn't see the northern lights though, it was cloudy the whole time. But it's ok. It's still pretty at night when all the lights are off. The location is very close to the Santa Claus Holiday Village, but you'd still want to take taxi because you wouldn't want to walk that far with your luggage in the snow. Our reception was EXCELLENT. We were able to check in two hours early! The lady was super nice! There was a cute added two gnomes as a gift. They helped us with our luggage so we don't have to pull them in the snow to our 'room' which is like a duplex but you don't hear the neighbor at all. Service was great, no phones but they respond with the iPad given in the room. We wanted a taxi to go into town and the taxi came very quickly. Breakfast in the morning was also wonderful, plentiful, and delicious and not crowded at all. I would stay here again, but more than just one night, hopefully get it on sale! :)

The only thing that would make this place better is if they turned off the lights at Santa’s Place at night so you could enjoy the igloos more. Otherwise beautiful property

Convenient location but could have been better
The hotel was family style so facilities were busy most of the time. The breakfast was ok, though there wasn’t anyone to welcome guests or offer coffee. The location was good and in walking distance to the Santa Clause village. We arrived a little before check-in time, the room was not ready so we completed paperwork and went out for dinner. When we came back we were told we have free dinner but until 5pm or 6pm. We wished if we were informed and welcomed to dinner before heading out. We could have stayed while the room gets prepared.

I loved the accommodations and how it was a short walk to Santa’s Village. Definitely felt like we were staying in a winter wonderland! The complimentary breakfast and dinner entrees were fantastic. The aurora alert in the rooms worked like a charm as well! It only went off once while we were there, but we could see the auroras when stood outside. Only thing I wished that was available that we didn’t have was a sauna. Also, we utilized the laundry service — which was super helpful because we were traveling light, but it was rather pricey. Overall — the staff was super helpful and friendly & I would 100 percent recommend staying!

Overpriced Hotel for what you get
The experience we had in this hotel is just like a overpriced and glorified holiday inn. Don’t get sold by the pictures. They are extremely short staffed for everything.. so dont expect any help with luggage or any other extra request. Check in is quite late (4pm), specially when you have to check out at 11am. There is no room service, and no lunch service either. Breakfast was ok, always the same options. Dinner was very good, this is the only great thing I can say. They have a fire pit outside, but its never on, again, no staff to switch it on and keep it going. Even the outside area where you can smoke is unpleasant and no cleaning and no attention to the area. The hotel reception area is quite dirty, from people eating and drinking, the cleaning is slow. The toilets of the reception are not cleaned regularly. The room itself were ok, we did have moments of cold. The heating does switch off for a bit, and the toilets are cold. Floor heating is only in a very small area. It is about 600/700m walk to the Santa Village, so be prepared to walk in the cold. Feels longer when its -23 Celsius. When I checked out and was asked about our experience I said I was not impressed for what we paid. Got the reply “okay”. Seems that tourism is not their main priority. Overall I was expecting much more for what we paid.

When one pays close to 800$ a night for a room, you expect a soap bar ( asked for it, never got ) and a few minimum amenities.
