  • Nice place. But hotel feels a little dated given the price point.

    lovely luxury stop over for us. large cottage. a few things that would have made it perfect - a snow scoop/shovel- we made it up to the cottage, but the hottub etc was under 2 ft of snow- i understand it might not be possible for staff to clear regularly - but a shovel so we could still access the facilities would have been useful. instructions on tv would have been helpful.

    Note that there is a hotel and (brand new!) cottages available at this property. We stayed in a cottage and it was absolutely gorgeous! Very spacious, beautifully furnished. Hot tub on porch, 2 bathrooms, 3 bedrooms, kitchen/DR/LR, laundry, etc. Staff was helpful and very nice. Highly recommended.

    Stayed in a three bedroom, self catered cottage. This is in a quiet location a couple of minutes drive from the hotel. The cottages are spacious with comfortable furniture and large veranda ideal for northern lights watching.

    It was okay. Old hotel that has a slight odor. Not the worst we have stayed in, but I am sure there are better in a nicer location.
