The hotel is a good place to have some fun in the snow and same time be close to Santa Village and the city. We went for hiking and sledding in the snow. The spa is ok and has a hot water zone (some weird rules in terms of clothes and showering). The food in the hotel is bad starting in the breakfast... poor quality and lots of junk food. Sauna in the room was nice but the shower water goes into the electrical plugs ... very dangers- see pictures.

Imagine your local sports centre with a cafe, pool and a large hall serving meals of the quality you’d expect at your local sports centre. Then add a few rooms. And call it a “resort” and add the words “Santa Claus” in there somewhere. This is not a hotel and is overpriced for what you get with virtually no service that you’d expect at a traditional hotel on offer. Cleanliness is also an issue which needs more work from management. You’re about a twenty minute walk from town (although most experiences do offer a pick up service) and unfortunately we never really looked forward to returning in the evening. The previous reviews about swimming pool opening times are not true - we found a long period of usage but again - pre booking imagine your local sports centre pool rather than a hotel pool. The staff are not unfriendly or bad intentioned but if you’ve come all the way here unless you’re really not in the slightest bit bothered about creature comforts this may not be the place for you.
