Our children are 5 & 6 and this 3 night trip to Lapland with Thompson was amazing. The rooms in this hotel are a little tired but very clean & comfortable. All you need after a very busy day in the snow. The food is quite basic but hearty & tasty, after all it's a long way north! Situated in...

We were booked into the the Gielas hotel for a week on a half board basis, which is part of Santa's hotel Tunturi. This hotel has the more up market rooms. Our room was on the top floor over looking the ski slopes with its own balcony (which we didn't use as it got as low as -19C outside- but...

We checked in room 214. It was cosy and small but it was good enough for our 3 night stay in Saariselka. There are lots of tours within reach however, be prepared to pay a hefty price. We went with Lapland Safaris and they were good but very expensive. We came to see the Northern lights and lucky for us,...

Its easy to say the words 'the holiday of a lifetime' however this trip most certainly was. Yes, a big highlight was coming face to face with Santa after 45 years of waiting, the children enjoyed it as well, and aside from that, this was an experience, excellently put together by Santa's Lapland. We stayed for 4 days in the...

Very pleased with our 3-night stay here, though it had a rocky start! We entered our room to discover it was already taken! Then had a short wait for another room to be cleaned... We had a fabulous view of the village & toboggan run from our balcony. All-in-all extremely happy with our room which was very clean. Loved having...

We stayed in this hotel in February 2016, travelling with Inghams for ski-ing. The hotel is a large complex, including (amongst others) the Tunturi block and the Gielas block. We paid extra to stay in the Gielas block (rated as 4 star), and I'm so pleased we did because - importantly - it meant that we had breakfast in the...

Lovely hotel. We had an apartment with three bedrooms at this hotel. Fantastic meals, with plenty of choice for all tastes. We went on night time skidoo trip to see the northern lights (amazing!!), husky sled ride and skiing (not worth it, only one piste), and to see santa(magical, although extremely busy). Lots of tobogganing, lots of snow ... A...

We stayed for 2 nights half board at this hotel through Santas Lapland. The accommodation was comfortable and warm and the food served for both breakfast and evening meal was in my top 3 of best hotel foods I've eaten. There was something for everyones taste and diet. I was shocked as my sister in law had been to Levi...

The hotel itself was OK. We booked through Santa's Lapland and stayed in a separate block. The apartment is very dated, but was clean. There is a quick walk outside to get to the restaurant. However, when it's minus 30 outside, nothing is quick when you have to tog up an 8, 5 and 3 year old. The food was...

We had an amazing holiday just before Christmas. The whole package is superbly organised from start to finish. Everything is thought of and we felt completely comfortable. The room was good, on the small side for two adults & two children, just about enough storage space, bedding a bit tired, but the shower was excellent. The food was good, decent...
