The location, the cabins, the programs
Cabin heating was not suficient for -40º outside
Northern lights visable This is not a hot type establishment. This is more of a luxury outdoor/bed and breakfast experience.
Some staff could be more friendly. Compulsory Food is average
The log cabin was excellent. More than enough space for 2 people, and I absolutely loved the private sauna within the cabin. Easy walking distance to the reception/restaurant, and nice walking trails though the resort/village right outside. Cross-country ski trails are also passing just right past the village. Excellent food in the restaurant.
The only negatives were minor. Although people arriving at the resort should know about the available activities, it would still be nice if one was asked on check-in if any (other) activities would want to be joined or booked. In the restaurant, one evening the waitress mentioned the chef's specials (which do cost extra), while the waitress the other two evenings didn't care to mention and she only told me what was available after I asked about it.
The location was absolutely stunning, the tour guides fabulous, though the tours had to be booked through the hotel and on a visit to the local town we found out that the prices had been doubled by the hotel. The cabin was quaint and spacious, though in need of updating. The breakfast buffet had a good selection.
The cabin was in need of a good clean and had a broken front door lock that we had to request be replaced. The hotel advertises an al a carte menu but we really had to push to be able to see this & ordering had to be made a day in advance, even for two people. The alternative was what was called a 'Half Board' meal, this consisted of three courses for Eur33. We tried it once, but with green leaves for a starter, curried chicken that was very dry and unpleasant for the main course and a very firm panacotta for desert, we didn't go back for more ! On leaving, the receptionist 'Hu Yin' tried to charge us for meals that we hadn't had and a cake that we had requested on arrival that didn't materialize to the value of Eur126. When I explained that we hadn't had these items she became aggressive and very nasty until a fellow guest who was also leaving and who she had tried to overcharge by Eur264 stepped in. She spoilt what had been up to that point a nice holiday. We would not return due to this bad experience.
I loved everything about this place. The owner Jussi was wonderful in giving me a tour of his property. The staff are wonderful and very personable. They are there to make your stay comfortable. 1. Yes there is a charge for taking your luggage out there. After towing your luggage through gravel paths, you will understand why they charge the 8/9 Euros. It will be worth it. You can store your luggage if you are going to the glass igloo. 2. The log cabins have their own sauna and shower area inside each cabin. There is refrigerator, stove, sink, dining table, private porch area and counter. I was traveling by myself. My cabin also had double bunk beds and a king size bed. 3. The resort does serve dinner but the front desk does not stay open all night so make sure you have If you are coming here. There is a to grocery store in Saariselka. I hailed a taxi to grab groceries and back. **Ask the reception to call a taxi for you. From the signage, it appears only taxi approved by the hotel will be allowed on premise. 4. There is NO television nor internet (wi-fi signals) on the property EXCEPT in the reception area. 5. If you are planning on dining in the dining hall, make sure to reserve your slot and let them know if you cannot eat certain food as the menu is fixed. They catered to my "no fish" diet and the food is AMAZING. Seriously, the best salad dressing and steak I have ever tasted! Try a local drink. I tried something called Reindeer Piss and Jussi's Tawdy. There is a main gift shoppe but ask to see the one gated off. There are more expensive items and fur. Also clothing made by the Sami people. I loved my stay, the crisp air, the great staff. I wish to thank Jussi, Joti, Angela, and all the wonderful staff at the reception. My stay was truly enjoyable.
Nothing. Everything was well laid out. I wish I would have seen the northern lights but that just means...next time!
The tours offered by the hotel are too expensive. The meals (dinners) were also expensive, and there were no other alternatives (or very difficult ones) but to eat in the hotel.
Close to hiking tracks, own sauna in the cabin
There was a really strong smoky smell in the cabin, cabins are too close to the road, interior of the cabins needs refreshing
Quiet and enough dark around the hotel. If wether is fine, good to see northern light (even in Sept). I stayed at lodge and used fireplace, interesting.
Far from town. A few number of buses in a day. Better to drive rental car or hitchhike to town.
Dinner was very disapponiting. There is only one compulsory menu, the quality is low. What's more, the cost is too much expensive:((
The staff was absolutely fantastic and went far out of their way to accommodate us and help out with even the smallest needs. For them alone it's worth a visit, but the location and all the things to do in the area are as well.
Finland is already silly expensive, but this hotel takes it to new level. Their tours are at least twice the cost of doing the exact same by one self and they often don't add more than a driver and a bowl of soup. Gold panning for instance costs 15 EUR on site, and 50 EUR at the hotel with a driver and soup being the only difference.
Very beautiful. Great breakfast buffet with salmon.
Poor & Old kitchen facilities Overpriced.
In general the waiters were not very helpful
The log cabins were really comfortable, and the setting (in the middle of a forest in winter), was unmatched.
For the price, I would have liked slightly better service. But not complaining, just a comment.
Nice warm log cabin with sauna & fireplace. My kids loved shoveling the snow and the picturesque sight is really nice. Bedroom 2 was uniquely design with carved log as stairs.
Very long walk from the main building. Small breakfast buffett choice & the salmon was overly salted. Cashier mischarged our meals but to their credit they refunded us (but the hotel has no record of our cash payment at all !). Set Dinner was reasonably priced at Euro31 (incl starter, main course & desert) but NOT tasty. The curry chicken fillet was hard like rock and sauteed reindeer was so so. Given similar price, we had eaten better, tastier food at Teerenpesa and Petronella at Saariselka. As we also stayed at the Igloo, we had to leave our luggages in the luggage room but to my horror, all luggages were un-tagged, un-guarded and just left in a room which is not locked. Anyone can access the luggage room from outside. Apparently they only lock it at 10pm, so whatever happens in the day, nobody cares.
