A really lovely hotel, spotlessly clean, warm, comfortable, delicious food and friendly staff, nothing is too much trouble. Many activities available, all very exciting and safe. The glass roofed cabins are truly amazing!

Great place full of wanders and peace. Staff was nice, the area is really unique and worth visiting. Will return if given the chance. Once arrived we quickly settled in. There are activities and the in-house restaurant is a great choice to complement your stay. The activities are varied and long enough to fill a good chunk of the day. Two activities a day is ideal to tailor your stay and enjoy the full experience. The restaurant is great and we were really surprised the selection and quality of the service.

We stayed at the Inari Hotel as well as the Nangu. They are very different hotels so if you get the chance, it makes a good trip to stay at both. Hotel The hotel at Inari is much bigger and busier. There is a large restaurant with buffet and lots of lounge area to sit and have a drink etc. The hotel at Nangu is smaller and more boutique and there are no children. As a result, Nangu has a more personal feel and is quieter. The staff at Nangu are super friendly and helpful (the service is good at Inari but they have more people to deal with). Both hotels are on a lake and the whole area is beautiful. Inari is closer to a small town, and we were able to walk to a shop. They are about the same distance from the airport (50 mins or so). Both hotels supply winter boots, socks, gloves, and a winter jump suite. We needed all of this – it was super cold while we were there. You wear it over full thermals. Rooms We all stayed in standard rooms in Inari. They are a short walk to the main hotel. The rooms have everything you need and nicely decorated with TV and kettle (there are no TVs at Nangu). There is wifi in the rooms at Inari but no wifi in the Nangu rooms – just in the restaurant/lounge area). The standard rooms in Inari are off a long corridor and there was some noise of people coming and going – mainly excitedly when the northern lights appear (you can rent an alarm which goes off when they start). Also, parties seem to be given rooms next to or opposite each other and there is a trend to open the doors to talk between them. If you want something quieter at Inari, then rent a lodge. They are detached and looked really nice. At Nangu we had a premium room (nice and large with a view over the woods and with doors direct outside – close to the main building) and a log lodge which was semi-detached, large, had a small kitchen, seating area, terrace, sauna and a view over the lake (but oddly no bedside tables and no hooks to hang up winter clothes). The lodge also had a nice flame effect fire (some have a jacuzzi). They are a slightly longer walk from the main hotel. We found the rooms in both hotels hot and turned the heating right down. The lodge at Nangu has a door which can be opened for ventilation but the other rooms (at Nangu) have nothing which can be opened. At Inari the rooms have a security window which can be opened. We found the beds very comfortable. Staff The service was good at both hotels. As mentioned above it was more personal at Nangu, largely because the place is smaller and less busy. I have noticed what has been said by others about the service at Inari. It is not a luxury hotel. The restaurant is buffet style and so the staff just clear plates and serve drinks. Food We were on full board (recommended). The food at both hotels was buffet. There was more choice at Inari. At Nangu there was no choice for the main course while we were there, although they did do a vegetarian meal if you asked. Having said that the food was delicious, so it didn’t bother us. Amazing soups. There were COVID restrictions on restaurant opening times and the selling of alcohol, but the hotels dealt with them really well and it didn’t spoil our stay at all. Activities We did them all and they were great fun (wonderful guides). They are well organized. We did husky riding, reindeer farm, snowmobiling, Aurora camp and snow shoeing. The husky and reindeer sites we went to were close to Inari and we loved them. The snow shoeing at Nangu was very special as we climbed and had a perfect view over the countryside –(the guide was lovely and we learned lots about the country and the Sami). We went in December/January and it is light from about 10am till 3pm but the sun doesn’t rise above the horizon. The white snow means that you can see things even in the dark and some activities are done in the dark. However, there are times when it is very dark and there are no activities so bring a game. We loved it. And of course, there are the Northern Lights. It is potluck. We stayed a week to increase our chances and saw them over 3 nights. Finland And finally, the country. We weren’t prepared for how stunningly beautiful it was and how remote and quite also how friendly everyone was. A stunning trip. Thank you everyone at Inari and Nangu for a great trip!

Our second visit to this gorgeous hotel and this time we didn't even leave the property for anything other than winter sports and walks on the lake. Special shout-out to guide Sanni for the gorgeous waterfall snowshoeing hike. Incredibly beautiful area and we adored the authentic design and sustainable delights of this Sámi-owned and operated hotel. Blown away by the aurora borealis we were lucky enough to witness on most of our nights here.

Hotel could do so much better in terms of customer service. Location was great and facilities were decent however, all outlets of the hotel were missing hospitality and customer service skills. Especially in the restaurant, no service was available and that made every dining experience feel very cheap and uncomfortable. I would have hoped for a better communication from the staff especially in the current covid environment when keeping guests and staff safe should be the number one priority. Unfortunately the restaurant was packed every night (no safety distances), covid passes were only checked randomly and the concept was basically self-service. Biggest disappointment was the Christmas Dinner; our waiter did not know what was served on the buffet when we asked him, nothing was explained, drinks were not offered. The overall experience was not worth the money we paid.
