    the cabin was much bigger than we expected for 2 people, and it was very nice and clean, the staff was very friendly, the breakfast bufet was rich and the reception and restaurant area looked more like a hotel than a camp :) would definitely stay there again

    Very good

    the view from the room was very nice, with the far away mountains. The main room had a nice table and 4 seats. It was very cosy and the kitchenette was very well equipped. Wish I could stay longer!

    The room desperately needs to have Curtains to make it dark!!! Now the sun started to shine in the room about 2 o'clock in the night, and the (dusty) curtain ribs did not make the room dark enough... Even when it was the exotic Midnight Sun, some guests would prefer the good night sleep...

    Superb

    Very friendly staff, excellent restaurant if not very cheap, nice functional cabins, many activities on offer from the hotel.

    Some rooms are too warm (sleeping with open window by - 30 degrees celsius). We did not bother to ask the staff to adjust it though.

  • 7.4
    Very good

    The cabin was spacious, with a kitchenette. There was also a skibox next to the entrance. In front of each cabin was a parking spot.

    There were no proper curtains (only half working window blinds), so during white night there was fully bright in the room. Shower cabin was leaking so we had wet floor in the bathroom all the time.

    Good

    Location quite good, and quiet; Reasonable value for Sweden.

    It is like a motel, with our room quite distant from the restaurant etc, which could be unpleasant in serious winter weather.

    Fabulous

    Perfect place, excellent staff, very good breakfast, a lot of activities, well positioned. I really suggest that lovely place

    The spa is a bit far from rooms, so in cold season you may not enjoy the whole experience

    Warm rooms, some rooms have recently had the bathroom redecorated and have underfloor heating. Reception staff appear helpful (read below for why not)

    We stayed on 2 different occasions, the second night our bathroom was older and cobwebs were by the window. We booked an airport transfer on our first night, reconfirmed it on our final night for a 6am pick up. . . at 0625 we were still waiting, and reception didnt open until 0630. We spoke with the recptionist who confirmed the transfer had been booked (and we had been charged for it), but they hadnt actually contacted the man to pick us up, needless to say it was a bit worrying as we arrived at the airport after checkin closed!

    Fabulous

    Location was easy too find. It was well kept and well equipped. I travelled alone but they could easily cater for larger groups. The dinner menu although small was very well presented and extremely tasty. I was able to check in sooner than advertised and with the addition of free wifi it was a very good holiday location. With the nearby Forrest area so close by I was never stuck for things to do and the town was a small 10 minute walk away also the reception were able to help me book excursions such as the northern lights and dog sledging.. A very nice stay with reason to return.

    My only issue was the lack of being able to control the room temperature. It did get rather hot at night!

    Good

    The breakfast was good. Bed was soft. Kitchen and dryer in the cabin were really useful.

    The check-in staff was really slow. The heating system was shut down at night. Far away from the center, hard to get the direction in winter when snow covers the road. Ice at the front door of the reception building was really really slippery, I was nearly fell down for several times and I saw one fell down outside the door.

    Fabulous

    Great, scenic location. The self-contained cabins were quite adequate and rather large, especially for a solo traveller. Happy to get a kitchenette, saved on food costs in the rather expensive north. Buffet breakfast was fantastic with lots to choose from and a large area for seating in a very modern and tasteful restaurant.

    Bathroom was quite dated and shower very cramped - hardly enough room to turn around!

    Insufficient value-for-money of the breakfast. Slow check-in. Too early "deadline" for check-in for advance reservations.

    Nice place in terms of nature beauty. Breakfast is good.

    The distance is very far to walk from the train station. Take about 1 hr to walk . Worse when you travel with luggages. The heaters are not really working well. For family of 4, there gave us a small connecting room with double deck bed. Expensive.

    Superb

    Peaceful, close to nature. Good place to see northern lights.

    Expensive and snobbish restaurant, had to reserve table for dinner even if there was actually nobody besides us. Used breakfast plates are not taken away in time, we had our breakfast while the dirty plates of previous guests were still on our table. It was the same every morning at all tables. Remote controlled heating in rooms.
