    Nice cottage: clean, well designed and equipped. Very good sauna.

    Room size is perfect for two persons, but quite small for four.

    It is the best hotel I ever have stayed in my whole life. Very nice & helpful staff with good English and warm smiles. The room was brand new and with good facilities such as kitchen appliances and sauna. Breakfast and dinner there was tasty. Service were very in person like transportation to airport.

    The cottage was beautifull, there were all you need in the cottage, the location is near the Santa Claus village, but a little far from Rovaniemi, if you plan a trip in a city and you are without a car. But the bus to the city is going every hour. There was a sauna too, very nice. Good breakfast with a waste choice of food

    Great cabin, big. Lots of parking. Right in Santa Claus Village. Good breakfast. Nice little park for kids to play in. 2 minute walk to main building.

    Awesome hotel staff. On the Arctic Circle. Own flat, much nicer than a hotel room. Clean, well equipped.

    Still under construction. Will be much nicer when all is finished.

    Excellent location, 100m away from Santa Claus! Cottage with high quality furnitures. Everything is new.

    Breakfast should be improved with more variety of meal. A cupboard in the cottage is necessary if you are going to spend more than a night there.

    Our family had a pleasant experience in Santa Claus Holiday Village. The couple who own the hotel are very friendly and warm-hearted. We were picked up at the airport as promised though our flight was really late, around 10:00pm.When we arrived at the Village, we had a happy surprise. The Holiday Village is just several minutes drive to the airport and located right in the Santa Claus Village. It's so convienient for us to visit Santa and the Santa Post, Arctic Circle, etc. The whole Holiday Village is just newly established and looks so beatiful. The cottage is designed quite well, it's pretty, user-friendly,clean and tidy. We also tried Sauna in the cottage, it's fantastic. Wow, my son likes this hotel very much!

    When you first arrive at the rovaniemi airport, the staff from the holiday village are there to pick you up (transfers are free) and take you only 5mins drive to the village. They help you check in then take you to your cabin door, all the while answering any questions you have. The cabins are compact and can sleep 4 comfortably. There is a spacious bathroom with your own private sauna. The shower water pressure is good with instant hot water, great when its freezing outside. The cabin is equipped with all towels and linen, crockery and cutlery for four and microwave, two hotplates, pots for cooking, a kettle and tea and coffee. The cabin comes with a toboggan and a little sleigh, which the kids just love. The resturant has basic food and the shop offers a large assortment of souveniers and gifts. The is also a bookings desk where you can book all your sightseeing trips. The staff are extremely helpful and know which trips are the best. A 5min walk from the cabins is Santas village, with resturants, Santa"s post office, gift shops, Husky Dog rides,Reindeer rides, snowmobile rides, Ice castle, a toboggan slope and The Arctic Circle marker. The village is also a 5min drive into town if you want to go to the museum or look around the town. The Santa theme park is also a 5min drive away. The Santa Claus village is the perfect place to stay if you want to experience christmas magic any time of year!

    Even though the cabins and staff are great the food lets it down alittle. The breafast is basic but filling. There is ceral, bread, juice ,tea coffee, hot chocolate, an egg dish, small sausages and meat balls, fruit and yogurt all on a buffet set up. As for lunch dinner the food is very basic.At the time of year we went the cafes in the area were only open for luch, so we went to the grocery store and bought our own food and cooked it. You could also go into town for dinner, although the taxi fare is quite expensive.

    The staff went out of their way to purchase an electronic adaptor to fit my Australian appliances. The proximity to all Santa related activities meant that we could cover two in one day I.E. reindeer sleigh ride plus Husky Dog ride in one day. Located closer to Ounasvaara Ski resort than Rov city, so taxi is cheaper. Cabins were very comfortable. Airport transfers free.

    Some things in room were not clean I.E. microwave. Tea towels are not provided but needed. Food in the main dining hall is ok but pretty average. Even though the 'Real Santa' is free to visit, I would suggest only going to visit him once. My son went to visit him a second time two days later. He was faced with a different 'Real Santa' and I was faced with a million questions. I think this incident ruined his belief in Santa, which was obviously not the point of the trip. The two young girls at the bottom of 'Santa's Office' perhaps should have recognised my son (it wasn't a busytime of year and we had brought a huge stuffed toy from them) and maybe made him wait until I got there to explain that it was a different Santa upstairs, but that is asking too much. This incident is not related to the accommodation and stay at the cabin,s which was great.

    Close to the Santa Village and operating hours till late as everything in the village almost close at 17:00; the owner and staff is very nice and friendly, the cabin with sauna room is so wonderful after a whole day snow activity outside, comfortable bed and room decor. The hotel restaurant is also nice as they provide delicious food with fair price along with salad bar and drinks; even before we checked-in the staff was already very helpful through email communication.

    The distance is a problem if you don't drive your own car, only bus no.8 Arrives and not very intensive schedule, taxi to city centre cost about 20 euro one way. If you arrive by air plane it will be better as they provide free shuttle service. (Plus info, city centre to Rovaniemi train station, taxi 11 euro)

    Santa Claus Holiday Village is fantastic. The staff are all really friendly and very helpful. The cabins themselves are spotless and really warm and cozy.... just what you need after a day in the snow. The sauna was a real bonus and great for parents to relax in .... the heated bathroom floor is a lovely touch .... no cold feet. Gingerbread club keeps the little ones happy for 2 hours everyday making christmas decorations, cards, decorating gingerbread etc. All in all one of the best holidays my family and I have had. And with so many activities just a walk away you are never short of things to do. It makes christmas an really special time of year for both adults and children alike. Would definately reccommend this resort.
